I enjoyed listening to this book, even tho it dragged in parts.
I have enjoyed many other works by Stephen King.
I thoroughly enjoyed the idea of the period of time that this story took place. The ending did leave an opening for a sequel to the story.

I'm glad I purchased it.

The original cover of this album would have told you pretty much all you need to know about its subject matter: drugs. Carlin's fifth album, it was recorded on July 20, 1974, at the Paramount Theater in Oakland, California.

George's lighthearted routines and less topical issues complement his overwhelming timing in this classic album. Taken from his performance at the Beverly Theatre in Los Angeles in May 1986, George offers some of his hilarious examinations of "Losing Things" and "You're Lost": "That's the first thing that happens when you get to Heaven," he says. "They give you back everything you ever lost".

It was the eye. The dull, sightless, vulture's eye that shredded his final nerve. But the murder was done so carefully, so perfectly, that only one thing could reveal the whereabouts of the body. B. J. Harrison gives a masterful reading of the famous murder that wouldn't keep quiet. This podcast episode also includes two poems from Edgar Allan Poe: "Eldorado", and "Annabel Lee".

I got this for my young niece to listen to and found I listened more than she did.

Just like Dr. Suess himself the book is great for kids to listen to on car rides.
