The Storyteller's Secret audiobook cover art

The narrative was so strident. Very unpleasant.

The direction made this wonderful story sound more like a Harlequin romance. Each paragraph ended on such a declarative note that it always seemed like some other tension was being introduced to the plot. The narrator had a lovely voice, however, this didn’t seem the right tone to take with this book that is otherwise well written.

This is written for someone younger and more naive than me. Casey and Jake were too insipid to be believed.

Totally enjoyable and affirming for women especially in the current political climate. Strong women who took their destiny into their own hands when life threw them for a loop.

I have spent the last few years waiting for the next installment and can track passages of my life based on which book I was reading. I will always associate this final book with the Christmas season that our 7 year house remodeling was finally completed.I loved Harry, Emma, Giles and family.
I know that things had to wrap up, however, I wished there had been more time spent developing Samantha and Set's next chapter.

While not as gripping as Mr. Mercedes, much better than King's most recent book, Desperation. Will Patton is a talent that is so compatible with all of King's stories.

Really disappointed after following this saga for so long. I hope I can find a summary on line to explain some of the details of what I've been listening to because I just couldn't abide having to wade back through to try to get it again.

I like all of the King's books, although I love some. I wasn't in love with Desperation.
Let's face it, he's a better writer than reader. What happened to Patton?
A lot of familiar King themes including a child shall lead them, but a recovering alcoholic will save them. Cack

The story is good with a theme that reminds us how we often miss obvious cues about our children and family. However, a bit unrealistic in the current private school environment where dyslexia is quick to be identified.
The conclusion, after such a long build-up was hasty and left unanswered questions.

Beautifully written and performed, although editing needed work.
Terribly sad. Characters well developed.
Knew there wasn't going to be a happy ending, but kept reading with hope.

Dark story line, however, the descriptive style of it captured me throughly. The middle of the story drug a bit.
