    "Enjoyable, a great story told"

    I enjoyed both the story and the narration. Detailed story from Mr King and a pleasing well narrated story telling by Ron McLarty. A recommended addition to any library

    "They way Vampires are supposed to be."

    Started off a little slow but then it grabbed me. By the neck and did not let go. One of my favorite Vampire stories ever. This book will make you look over your shoulder when your near a dark place or the woods.

    "Great characters "

    The narrator did a good job I especially loved Barlows voice. I also loved the introduction by Stephen King.

    Story
    "Vampires...meh"

    I have never been a big fan of Vampires, but I am a fan of Stephen King and have decided to read his complete works in order as to see how his writing and creativity developed over time.

    Eventhough this is a vampire book, it doesn't shy away from the similarities to Van Helsing and Dracula, and even makes joking references to the classic novel. I really enjoyed the development of the Marsten house and the general overtone of the town in general through out the story. While parts of the ending were relatively predictable, it's a good story and worth a read.

    "Wonderful Thriller"

    I am a Stephen King fan and I have read this book on paperback before. I love his detailed description of entire scenes, and that is probably one of the greatest reasons for my interest in his novels. I really enjoyed the readers portrayal of each character and how he conveys their emotions throughout the novel.

    "Great book, great narrator"

    Stephen King is one of my favorites and this book does NOT disappoint. It's well written, eerie, and exciting to listen to.

    The narration by Ron McLarty is amazing, very organic and skillful with his delivery. If you download this one, you are doing yourself a favor

    "Well worth it"

    The narrator was great, and the introduction by Stephen King at the beginning was fun and explained quite a bit about his thought process. It's still one of the great classic vampire books, and I highly recommend it.
