King writes again ....

This is the most enjoyable story from King for quite a while - at least, for me. I’ve always been a fan of King’s horror, and have felt as though he’s been - what? Avoiding horror lately?

I understand why, as a writer, King would go nuts if he couldn’t get his non-horror yayas out. But those of us who find his horror fantastic, we need a good old creep-show dose of horror to make us happy - this one pegged the creepy-meter! Thanks!

Great story and narration

The narrator, Craig Wasson, did a great job as usual. And while most Steven King books tend to drag on and on, this one was tight and kept a good pace. Solid story, solid narration, great book. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

What a book!

I read this years ago, recently saw the HULU movie, and downloaded the audio book. What a fantastic story!

Good story; bad narration

What would have made 1922 better?

The story is vintage Stephen King; he's always been one of my favorites. However, the narration is making it very difficult for me to listen to the book. I may opt out, and read it in regular book form instead. It is VERY important to have a good narrator who can translate and perform the story as intended, but this actor puts emphasis on the wrong words, and often speaks in a horrible, whiny sing-song voice, mostly when he is imitating how he thinks a character should sound when speaking. Listening to him do the wife's voice is almost unbearable. I don't think I can listen to it any longer.

Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

Yes, he is pretty much my favorite author.

Would you be willing to try another one of Craig Wasson’s performances?

Nope. Sorry.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes - good, vintage Stephen King thriller.

I like rats

Actually I love them and have had fancy, domestically bred rats as pets for many years.

Tonight I am considering leaving the light on in the room that houses Gandalf's and Merlin's cage.

THAT is story telling at its finest!!!

Tell Tale Heart Revisited

Excellent writing and narration. Didn't drone on like some of King's books. Definitely a page turner that moves at a good pace. Very similar to the tell tale heart by Edgar Allen Poe but longer and with more detail.
