'As a storyteller, he is up there in the Dickens class.' (The Times)
There are no reviews for this title yet.
Couldn't stop listening to this. One of my favourite books, not disappointed by brilliant narrator
"Epic. Just Epic"
There is a reason for this novel being touted as a modern day epic because, simply, it is.
As you would expect with Sai King and his story telling, the character development is second to none, the setting of the scene is near perfect and the way that the tension builds into the third stage of the story is enough to tie your stomach in knots.
Yes, 48 hours of story telling is long, and perhaps there is a little bit of self indulgence, but to be completely honest, it's deserved and does nothing to detract from this truly epic tale.
A masterpiece of story writing.
Truly an epic. I have listened to it twice now and it just gets better.
"M-O-O-N, that spells five stars. Laws yes it does."
Moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon moon. This is is a hell of a book.
a fantastic story with a host of characters you can really connect with. Narration brilliant.
another incredible book by Stephen King! glad I had read the dark tower series by him first though.
"A king classic, well read"
Really enjoyed listening to this version of a king classic. The voice acting was spot on.
really enjoyed this, gutted it's over and will be picking up a copy to read now it's. one of the best novels I've ever listened to.
King at his best
"An excellent book and an excellent read."
I really do love this Stephen King story. The narrator took a little time to get used to but I have to say did a brilliant performance of bringing the many characters to life. Excellent
"good story but over for described and too long."
liked it on long car journeys but too much detail.
Most exciting was first 10% and last 10%.
Would recommend the original version perhaps?
