"We now know what Stephen King, the master of horror, is afraid of. The Vietnam War...scares him so bad he won't let his hero act imprudently." (The New York Times)
"...Hurt skillfully evokes pathos from the story's fine detailing...." (Publishers Weekly)
Wonderful book, excellent read.... Keeps you wanting more. Just hate the music. Too loud! It is overpowering and you have to turn down the volume until it ceases.
This is a terrific book. As always, I'm impressed by the author's ability to write convincingly from a child's point of view, and to create a compelling story. William Hurt is stunning as narrator, and Stephen King is also excellent.
Things were going so well with William Hurt narrating the first story of this audio book. His Narration was terrific, and the story was great. However, once I started part two, I was bored, and King's narration was very unpleasant to me. Perhaps I'll pick it up again soon, but for now, "Hearts in Atlantis" is on the shelf.
I liked this book and the reading. When I finished part 3 I went back to audible to see if maybe there was a 4th part I had missed. For me this book just did not hang together. The low men in yellow coats, blind willie, the college years - although loosley connected I couldn't see the reason for all of these stories being in the same book - there was little to connect the characters. The last part was the final straw - I won't give anything away here - but I couldn't find credibility.
