Publisher's Summary

"You're a firestarter honey.... just one big zippo lighter." A year ago, he was an upstanding instructor of English at Harrison State College. Now Andy is on the run with his daughter, a pigtailed girl named Charlie. A girl with an unimaginably terrifying gift. A gift which could be useful to corrupt authorities. Soon Charlie will be caught up in the menace of a fateful drug experiment and a sinister government ploy….
Let the listener beware: Firestarter is Stephen King at his most mesmerising…. and menacing.

A little slow to start with.

But once it got going another great story from the master. Not his best but still enjoyable, on par with Rose Madder and Finders Keepers but not in the same league as The Stand or Duma Key.

Great

This is a great book. The narrator reads well and helps to bring the story to life. It gets exciting in parts and overall is an interesting concept for a novel. It didn't grab me as quickly as some of his novels do, but we'll with reading.

Pretty cool

It took me a while to get into it, maybe quarter way in and I was hooked. The initial jumps between past and future took some getting use to but was well done. Rainbird is a great character as is Charlie, Andy and Cap. Narration was very well done.
