Publisher's Summary

A hulking freighter waits at a darkened pier.

Aboard, filmmaker Carl Denham prepares for a strange voyage to a distant island, an island where he hopes to make the most exciting movie of all time.

First mate Jack Driscoll has concerns about the journey, concerns that only grow deeper when Denham talks a down-on-her-luck beauty named Ann Darrow into joining them.

And what waits for them at the end of the journey? More danger and excitement than any of the three could have imagined.

For what waits at the end of the journey is Kong.

Join the showman, the sailor, the blonde, and the beast for one of the greatest adventures of all time, as the actors of Full Cast Audio sweep you into the pulse-pounding epic of King Kong, Eighth Wonder of the World!

    "Breakers Ahead!"
    What disappointed you about Merian C. Cooper's King Kong?

    I expected a dramatization direct from the Lovelace novel. Instead, the audio book is something of a book and narration.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland ? Why or why not?

    Brad Strickland no worries. He's taken the helm for John Bellaire's delightful series of children's books. I don't know about Joe DeVito.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Baker and the Full Cast Family ’s performances?

    No thanks.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. The story from Merian Cooper is by far better than this. Read the book.


    Any additional comments?

    None.

    "Movie writing"

    This book was written for the movie screen in mind and does not translate well to being read as a stand alone book. It's so corny it's almost funny, but not quite. I listened to it all, but did not enjoy it. A poorly written story all told.
