Lisey knew there was a dark place where her husband ventured to face his demons. Boo'ya Moon is what Scott called it ¿ a realm that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed to write and live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face her husband's demons. And what begins as a widow's effort to sort through her husband's effects becomes a perilous journey into the heart of darkness.
Don't miss more from Stephen King.

"Stephen King at his finest...a dazzling novel." (Nicholas Sparks)
"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)
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
I loved this book but found it very annoying as well because of voice used to read. Too computerised. Reader dont express emotion which makes listening experience a bit plain. But overall :) good book! Worth getting
Found myself listening to it because I'd paid for it, but the story was confusing and the narration was distracting, disappointing,
Being a big Stephen King fan,i could not resist this book,the reviews looked excellent,so i thought why not!
To be honest this is not is best at all,all King fans know his stories can be long,but usually they are good enough to keep u gripped,this one did not.
It took me along time to keep going back to it,i was determined to listen to it,just in case it got better,guess what? it did not,i found it boring,and pointless,plus the word smuckin was repeated numerous times,and it got on my nerves,i just kept drifting,i am sad to say this of Mr King but it is not my favourite.
I bought the book when it first came out but just could not get into it. Having listened to just about every other Stephen King title that Audible.co.uk has to offer I thought I'd give it a try and am so glad I did. This is now my favourite ever Stephen King audio book. I has an amazing story that really comes to life when listened to, you really care what happens to Lisey and want to know what happened to Scott in the past. The reader is just perfect.
Highly Recommended even if you couldn't get into the actual book!
"Not one of his best"
I am a big Steven Kind fan and love most of his books. Where Lisey's Story isn't one of his better works it still has many good points. As a horror book it has some really quite chilling moments, the story line is good, but sometimes seems a bit too drawn out. It can in places be a little confusing, but this adds to the psychology of the plot.I would recommend this book.
I persevered with this until the end because I'm stubborn and had read about other people giving up on the paper version of the book. I was expecting more, but this was Stephen King on auto-pilot. Perfectly competent. Shades of the Talisman/Territories, but without the true magic. It's a great way to while away a long, long drive, but felt a bit like hard work towards the end. Possibly for die-hard King fans and completists?
"Everything in one book"
This is the best Stephen King book I have read. Love, loss, dreams, nightmares, fears, courage,terror - wow, everything. The narration is perfect, the storyline completely engrossing and definitely not overlong. I was gripped and haunted from the first word to the last. Perfect.
"Another King Masterpiece"
Once again King belivably merges the supernatural with the everyday as Lisey's story unfolds in this masterful work.
Couldn?t believe that I actually wasted so much time listening to this book, I usually love Stephen King books but this one was so mind numbingly boring I just had to warn everyone else to give this book a wide birth
"worst king book ever it seems"
I've almost read them all but this was so unbearable. I just wanted it to finish. No suspense, just weird in jokes and secrets and I didn't care for the characters at all. Sorry Mr King.
