Publisher's Summary

Two monstrous evils. The quiet suburban town of Hampstead is threatened by two horrors. One is natural. The hideous, unstoppable creation of man's power gone mad. The other is not natural at all. And it makes the first look like child's play.

heavily abridged

What would have made Floating Dragon better?

I was very dissatisfied with this down load. the book was so heavily abridged that it lost 90% of the important story features and by doing so left huge holes in the continuity of the book if such a thing were possible i would demand a refund. I had read this book when it was published and this rendering was a huge let down!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS JUNK. SINCE THIS DOWNLOAD I HAVE BEEN LEERY OF USING THIS SERVICE AGAIN ....CAVEAT EMPTAR!!

What could Peter Straub have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?


What aspect of Fritz Weaver’s performance would you have changed?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Floating Dragon?

Don't don't don't

I can't believe Peter Straub would allow this. Floating Dragon is an incredible book, one of my favorites. How can they release a title with the same name that is nothing like the book. I'm so disappointed and feel completely scammed

Great book - awful audiobook

This is one of my favourite Peter Straub books and I cannot praise the physical book high enough, however, this abridged audio version is just terrible. I will admit that I dont really like abridged titles but I will listen to them if thats all that is available as in this case. The actual book is long and complex, the audiobook is ridiculously short and I reckon that around 80% of the story has been cut for the abridgement leaving just a series of scenes with no real connecting story. This book deserves a fully unabridged version as many of Peter Straubs other titles now have although for some reason they are not available in the UK on Audible, just the USA, you can order them on CD though. I will be requesting a refund for this item,
