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....

    "Thoroughly Enjoyed It"

    I didn't love this book quite as much as Lisey's Story, but I did really enjoy it.
    Stephen, even though he's not an actor, read the book superbly and probably gave the book more character than if you read it yourself.
    I found it a little slow to start, but after an hour I was hooked. And the last 3 hours I had to listen to continuously!!
    If you love Stephen King, you'll love this.

    "A TREAT"

    This is a good story- not the usual horror- more of a haunted house spooky story, but very effective. The best part is that it's read my Mr King himself, who is just superb at it. And after the book, there's an interview with him too. I haven't read that many books by Stephen King, but I really enjoyed this one. Highly recommended.

    "Loved It"

    I loved this book. The fact that it is narrated by the author added to the enjoyment. A really sad story, full of suspense and twists.

    "VERY enjoyable"

    Just to reinforce what has been written so far. I would say you need to give it a couple of hours to really get going (the only reason it isnt at 5* and i would give it 4.5 if i could). After that though it is all good, great even, and has a good ending which can sometimes be Kings' self-confessed failing. Worth it by a long chalk.

    "ENTIRELY BELIEVABLE"

    An involving tale which hits so hard as it is an adaption of a fear that many of us have. Well narrated and, as usual Stephen King's characters, well the nice ones anyway, become your friends for the duration!!

    "Loved it!"

    I really enjoyed this audio book, a bonus that it was read by Stephen King himself, he really brought the characters to life.
    As soon as i finished it, I downloaded another Stephen King novel, and thats fab too.

    "Perfect! Well read and a great story."
    Would you listen to Bag of Bones again? Why?

    I would listen again as the book has such a lot to offer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bag of Bones?

    When Mike first returns to Sara Laughs.


    What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Depth and true understanding of the characters and story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but its a long listen so it wasn't possible but it gave me something to look forward to each day.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to many audio books, this one is my favourite. Narration was perfect and the story held me from start to finish.

    Story
    "A rattling good listen."

    I read some reviews that this story was a slow starter. I disagree. The time taken to "paint" the background and primary character was important to me. Once these things were established, the story began to take its sinuous shape.

    There were enough twists and turns to keep me glued to the story. Vivid descriptions of characters and places allied with the pace that events took place, kept me enthralled.

    Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended. Shame about the music but that is just my take on listening.
