Very enjoyable book. Well read and totally worth a credit. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
"Great story and very well told"
I really enjoyed this audiobook but wouldn't recommend the 48 hour version as did get a bit long winded at times. Imagine the original or abridged versions would be far more fast paced. If new to Steven king, I wouldn't listen to this first, go for the shining, it or needful things. Hope this helps!
Couldn't stop listening from start to finish. Another great Stephen King book very thought provoking. Can't wait to start another
"Has its moments"
Narrator was excellent but story good at start and sadly became boring and far fetched for sure .
Interesting sometimes but the longer the story went , I think it extremely boring for sure.
Revisiting Kings genre which started my love of reading when I was a teenager, I wasn't sure if I'd love it as much as I did as a kid, if I'd ruin my memories, I was so wrong. Loved this story and how long it was too, I really cared for all the characters, I've lived with them all week and now I miss them 😢
"The best King book written."
Fantastic book. seems like a long listen but, the more you listen, the quicker the time flows.
"The Stand, Stephen King"
Love this book and the narration was perfect !!!
Great for lying on the beach lazing the day away !!
Having read this book a couple of times, I wondered what it would be like to hear the story. I'm many ways, Grover Gardner's 'performance' rivalled a full ensemble cast. He is extremely talented in making the characters come alive. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this and already look forward to the next time.
"Great but a little too long"
Well written - as always by Mr King - and well read. Looking forward to downloading the next book - but which one?
just the best narration I have ever heard on an audiobook. regional accents are superb.
