    Story
    "Read by the Author"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bag of Bones to be better than the print version?

    Audiobooks are excellent for driving and walking, activities that you cannot perform while reading a book. The author reads this version and there are nuances you simply do not pick up while reading. For example, certain words that the author says using local dialects. This adds enormous colour and depth to the characters. Very much enjoyed both the pace and the development of the plot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As with most of Stephen Kings books, there is a depth to the characters and their interplay that keeps you attention from start to finish.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen King – was your favourite?

    I liked all the characters, each was interesting in their own way. Without giving away the plot, the villains and heroes of the story are all favourites.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This is already a mini-series. I'll watch that once I've read the book and see how it translates to film. Sadly, most of Stephen Kings books translate badly to film.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Involving,and unfolding"
    If you could sum up Bag of Bones in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping, Evil, Love


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike is the protagonist who is faced with an unfolding mystery and various moral battles, I almost wanted to see how those would play out either way...


    What about Stephen King’s performance did you like?

    I like his voice and characterization of Mike


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me reflect, Mikes reactions and responses are interesting in different situations

    "Recommended"

    Gotta love SK!!!!! I'm a huge fan, However I think I prefer his books when they stay away from the ghost story type theme. I would still recommend this though, its funny how much the little girl, who is only three, can express herself, perhaps she could have been a little older like they made her in the film - which stars Pierce Brosnan (avoid the film at all costs, they completely changed the story!)

    "Gets there in the end"

    I thought this was really slow to start but once it got going it is definitely one of his best

    "Annoying music"

    I loved the story but it was spoilt by the annoying music that made it very hard to hear some parts! keep music to in-between chapters please!
