I should apologize to myself for not reading/listening this one earlier. I've always loved King, but for some reason I never picked this one up. Its a joy to discover a treasure years later. LOVED it!

After 10 mins I was done.

I can't really write a review since I was so disinterested within the first 10 mins I deleted it. I am super glad it was one of those free choices Audible offered for my gold membership. I can start with the narrators voice being awful enough I knew I couldn't listen to him tell a story. As a side note this is YA, which is also not my style.

I normally love his books...

This one just stretched a few things a little too far. Yeah I know, I know, it's what Rollins does and normally I'm cool with that. But this was my least favorite of the series so far. I'm a little tired of the narrator as well, he's not bad, just kind of dry. I go through a lot of books on Audible and this was the very first time I ever tried the 1.5 speed option to finish the book. Which kind of made it funny and more tolerable at the end.

I'll give it about a month before I move onto the next book in the series. There's a new narrator for that one so we shall see.

It's no book 1

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I really enjoyed book 1 but this one felt "phoned in" the performance was fine but once the sentient things start arguing with each other the voices became very over the top and I started to cringe when certain things would talk. The story was shoe horned into an old D&D module I enjoyed as a kid, but it really feels forced. I haven't decided if I'll give book 3 a chance yet as this was just too silly at times.

Wow Flashback city

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book was fantastic. My brother has been trying to get me to check it out for years. I'm so glad I finally did. It's chock full of the stuff I grew up on, this was a pleasure from beginning to end...it even started me into playing DnD again. Wait, maybe thats not a good thing. LOL

Which character – as performed by Wil Wheaton – was your favorite?

At first Will felt very..."Will" but I soon got into it and its clear he was a fan of the story, he really gets into it.

Any additional comments?

If you grew up in the 80s this is for you and you're welcome.
