Publisher's Summary

The number one best seller: King at the peak of his powers - at once a first-rate suspense novel, a legal thriller, a haunted house story and a love story.

When Mike Noonan's wife dies unexpectedly, the best-selling author suffers from writer's block. Until he is drawn to his summer home, the beautiful lakeside retreat called Sara Laughs.

Here Mike finds the once familiar town in the tyrannical grip of millionaire Max Devore. Devore is hell-bent on getting custody of his deceased son's daughter and is twisting the fabric of the community to this purpose.

Three year old Kyra and her young mother turn to Mike for help. And Mike finds them increasingly irresistible.

But there are other more sinister forces at Sara Laughs - and Kyra can feel them too....

Another great one from Stephen King

It’s great to read something from such a master storyteller. It’s King’s usual style of reflective thoughtful writing, but with a story in which most of the scares are natural not supernatural. There are ghosts and there is death, but not as much of either as you might think. This focuses the drama of the story and makes it really great in my opinion.

great listen

Steven King reading his own books is brilliant. he brings every moment to life. I have listened to Bag of Bones a few times now and still find it as good as the first time. Jo, Maddie, Kyra … I know the whole cast personally.

Gripping

Another classic King yarn, that grips from word 1 and holds you a willing hostage until the last.
Believable characters doing unbelievable things, just the way we like it.

loved it so much

I love Stephen King and I'd not read this book because I saw the movie ( it was rubbish ) but the book is so so so much more.
it's now one of my favourites.
And Stephens comments at the end of the book are gold . loved it .

A tome of multiple colours. Superbly written!

At first, I had minor difficulties in understanding the minutia of said tome...but, with Stephen Kings superb narrative, the literary building blocks locked into place....a superb story!

One of the best "King" books I have ever read.

A somewhat lesser known work by Stephen king compared to the likes of "It", "The stand" and "the shining", however this book is, in my opinion, one of the best stories I have ever read, it is a smaller gem that shines as a great example of what the author is capable of after producing the overwhelmingly good books mentioned above.

Now mr King obviously isn't a trained actor. However there is a certain quality that stands out from him narrating it, because he knows this book better than anyone else and thus brings life to the whole story.

King at his best

Where does Bag of Bones rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Love the book and enjoyed Stephen Kings' narration. Held my attention throughout. Highly recommended.

Could not keep awake

Stephen Kings voice droning on and on, doesn't allow you to get into a very slow start !

Another Belter

Another fantastic book written by Stephen King. I loved his delivery of it, although it is more of a "your dad is reading a book to you" vibe than the modern, more audio drama approach. That said, it is King himself reading it, and I absolutely love his voice and delivery.
