I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
I have read this story before and was looking forward to the audio version. Not a fan. Perhaps the narrator needed a little more time to get into the story. I don't know but I was surprised at how the narrator made this story boring.
NO ONE... very low quality recording
yes, its the recording thats the problem not the story.
if you could her it
I'm a huge fan of King but this left me disappointed. The audio is presented with a whole bunch of sound effects and voices panned in and out to make it seem like you are there.
The reality is that they should have just been faithful to the source material and presented it like a normal audiobook.
King's writing is so good it doesn't need gimmicks like this. The strange audio presentation is distracting and it doesn't add anything to the experience.
Maybe some people who prefer movies/find books too slow or something might find it to their taste, but if you don't like books, why are you on Audible.
This is staged as a performance with amazing sound effects. In reality when played on a car stereo most of the dialogue waqs unitelligable due to accents and production with occasional well ground out phrases. " what, do you mean the secret government facility?, something strange going on, we're getting out of here"
Which is what I did. The book is probably good.
