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.

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

Enjoyed it!

Watching the movie first helped me give the characters face. Stephen King has always been one of my favorite authors, although this book wasn’t The best in Mr. Kings repertoire. It was still extremely entertaining.

Great Story

Loved the story! The narrators voice was strong, but over-exaggerated in certain parts of excitement.

Great!

A great performance and captivating story returned me from a slump. Great even if you've seen the Netflix film.

This was a good short listen

I thought it was good. I didn't realize it was as short as it was but keeps you interested.

Poor narrating

I almost wanted Henry to die. The narrator gave him such an irritating and whiney voice.
