Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited.
Perhaps King's most personal and powerful story ever, Lisey's Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.
Don't miss more from Stephen King.

"As much about the facets of longtime marriage as it is about the characters themselves, Lisey's Story offers a poignant glimpse at abiding love and the tides of grief, and the internal language of relationships of all kinds." (Atlantic Monthly)
"In Lisey's Story, Stephen King makes bold, brilliant use of his satanic storytelling gift, his angelic ear for language, and above all his incomparable ability to find the epic in the ordinary." (Michael Chabon)
"Lisey's Story is bright and brilliant. It's dark and desperate. While I'll always consider The Shining, my first ride on King's wild Tilt-A-Whirl, a gorgeous, bloody jewel, I found, on this latest ride, a treasure box heaped with dazzling gems. A few of them have sharp, hungry teeth." (Nora Roberts)
NOTHING, THE STORY DRAGS ON AND ON AND IS VERY IRRITATING.
I ENJOYED HER PERFORMANCE.
TERRIBLE BOOK. SKIP THIS ONE.
Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite.
put this one a way several times just couldn't get into it. king gets a pass on this.
The book was long but the twists and turns were very interesting.
I am not sure I can pick one. As I recall, I found the ending strange. It almost did not make sense but that is stephen king for you.
I loved her voice and no i have not listened to any of her other performances.
No it was not...Way to long for one sitting.
This wasn't a typical King story. He has written so many great books that I have truly enjoyed. It was however worth the money and I enjoyed reading it.
My favorite King will forever be my first, I read The Shinning in one long sitting. This is a very close second. No one writes...hell THINKS the things he can write so masterfully!
I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.
So well written. Fascinating in its portrayal of the main character. I have no idea how he comes up with his descriptions, but they are so well written that you can visualize what he is describing. I really liked this book. The real and the imagined are so well integrated. Bravo.
anything you can do, i can do bitter
brilliant story of love, loss, madness, fear, perseverance, sisterhood, and love.
Mare Winningham gives a calm and consistent, yet nuanced narration.
I'll be listening to this again for sure.
