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

You've gotta listen to this one! Actually my first Stephen King listen, but, John Slattery brings this book to life with great narration- it was like watching a movie in my head.
I could actually see each character, and identify with each and every scene.

What other book might you compare Duma Key to and why?

My favorite book is "ANYTHING LISA SCOTTOLINE"; Duma Key is obviously a very different because there's only one Stephen King, but I enjoyed this book as much if not more that the books I've read and listened by Lisa.

Which character – as performed by John Slattery – was your favorite?

Edgar Freemantle #1 and Winerman runs a very close 2nd

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely
