Not the usual King's style. Narration could have been more intriguing. little disappointed with the experience.
Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Jeffrey DeMunn?
Absolutely I have read many Stephen King books & listened to some to one he read 'Bag of Bones' & loved it, I listen to lots of books I have read & enjoyed over the years but I occasionally come across 1 I just can't get into. This was one of those
What do you think your next listen will be?
Ive already had lots since this & I'd love to listen to "The Stand" but for some reason I can't get it in Australia
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Mainly disappointment. This should have been a book I enjoyed
This is one of my favourite SK books. 4 friends do a brave, kind deed, defending a intellectually disabled boy being bullied. They become a tight group, complete with their own sayings and shared experiences. They grow up and it appears some bad s**t was coming their way and they need to deal with it. There's no religion in this one, some magic but not to the extent it can go in a SK novel. It's about a group of friends. It's about growing up together. It's about the possible end of the world. It's not too slow, no punches are pulled. The disabled guy is enabling and able - a nice change to many books if they even appear at all. Listen to it!

No other author seems capable of merging horror, sci-fi and tales of ordinary folk as masterfully as Stephen King. If you have seen the film but not read the book (or listened to it) then I recomend that you do so today. You will not be dissapointed.

Very slow story. Couldn’t get through the whole book. Wasn’t a fan of narrator either.
The narration was pretty ordinary and the story is far from Kings best work ........................
