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

Easy to get distracted

Would you listen to 1922 again? Why?

The story seemed a bit boring for a Stephen King novel. It was very easy to get distracted while listening and zone out. The narrator did a good job but the story seemed a bit bland to me. I wanted to read the book before watching the netflix movie which I'm glad I did but just wasn't for me.

Would you recommend 1922 to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not, too dry for me.

Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, but would!

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.

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.
