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)
I'm not a huge fan of the genre but Steven King has a way of touching home with whatever he writes. I laughed, cried and was afraid. The narration was spot-on. The whole book was an experience and I left feeling changed. An unfortunately rare experience in my opinion.
Very enjoyable & interesting. It got just a little bit too far out there at times but still very enjoyable. Mare Winningham is a great narrator, using just the right tones to portray the thoughts.
Absolutely superb story and stupendous performance. Haven't been so moved in years, heartbreakingly beautiful and terrifyingly real. An amazing portrait of marriage, familial relationships, and the power of belief.
It is in the top tier due to Mare Winningham's performance.
The combination of a woman;s story by Stephen King and Mare Winningham
All of it. The reading is amazing. Mare as the young boy is just heartbreaking.
I wouldn't change it.
This purchase was definitely worth my coin and time. Thank you Audible!
I think the audio book may be the better way to experience this story. This book is King's love letter to American idioms and the narrator allows you to experience not only the words themselves, but also the unique pronunciations and sounds. Her performance allows the listener to experience the rich flavors of the Appalachian dialect. It's a wonderful book made all the more special by Marriott Winningham's performance.
NOTHING, THE STORY DRAGS ON AND ON AND IS VERY IRRITATING.
I ENJOYED HER PERFORMANCE.
TERRIBLE BOOK. SKIP THIS ONE.
