Nothing much happened. I'm used to having a very profound response to a King book, but this was quite mundane.

I am a big reader of King novels and usually find very satisfying reads. However. I found this story to be uninspired and flat. I struggled to finish it and thought the narrator did well with the material, but it just didn't grab me the way most of his work does. Not sure if it was the collaboration that did it or just a boring story but I will still look forward to the next book.

I have enjoyed most of SK's newer work. He is typically a masterful storyteller and develops characters that you like or sympathise with. This book was something different. It was a struggle to listen to it from the beginning. The narration was great, the premise is great- the characters were awful. I struggled to make it half way through the book before I gave up. No GOOD characters. A few good villains. Maybe he went too hard with his political statement- whatever the case it was NOT an enjoyable book.

I love, love, love Stephen King - and have read & listened to many many books. I was impressed initially with the writing.
Story was ok at first - then very confusing...too many characters - only listened to 5 chapters. Narrator was awful - voice not only grated on me, but the up and down (whisper to loud) prompted me to remove the book from my device - I listen while I drive so I was continually adjusting the volume. I will note never to purchase a book narrated by Marin Ireland (and Stephen King himself)

Just used a book to rant about things he rants about on Twitter. Didn't even stomach finishing it.
