Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in New England, nine-year-old Trisha gets lost in the woods while on a walk with her family. Her only comforts are the radio broadcasts of Boston Red Sox games featuring her favorite player, closing pitcher Tom Gordon. Lonely, frightened, starving, and cold, Gordon becomes Trisha's imaginary companion - and the key to her survival against an unidentified someone (or something) leaving death and destruction in its wake.




The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is read by celebrated actress Anne Heche, star of numerous major motion pictures including Return to Paradise and Wag the Dog.

    Story
    "Short and Exciting!"

    This is the first Stephen King novel I have read. So I can't compare to his others, but I did really enjoy this book. The constant suspense and curiosity of what would happen next made this book a fun read for me. I have been having an unfortunate stretch of boring books and needed something to get me excited about reading again. This book was short and exciting! Did the trick. :)

    "Mr. King's done it again!"

    Great book and performance. Music was a bit distracting yet didn't interfere with the narration.

    "Great reading"

    I was nervous about Anne Heche reading the story as I already read the book and had my own preconceptions. But, she did a wonderful job and I could put myself where Trish was.

    Story
    "Got me into this author"

    This was the first book I read from this author, and read it mostly in a single morning when I was sick. I couldn't turn it off and cried my eyes out. In fact I feel like crying even as I write this review over two years later. The narrator wasn't my favourite, but I gave her five stars because I think she is perfect for this particular story. This is not exactly King's usual style, but still wonderful.

    Story
    "Superb!"

    This is one of the best books I have ever heard. A captivating and stirring story. In addition to the descriptive words of Stephen King, Anne Heche's strong vocal performance enhances those words and gives the story even more impact. Poignant at times, inspirational at times, and always interesting. I would not have envisioned having a 9-year-old girl be the source of some life lessons and tremendous courage. Well done.

    "Can see its value, just not for me."

    I can see why it is as renowned as it is, but it isn't a book I would read by choice, or read ever again.
