I've been listening to this audiobook on cassette for a VERY long time. It's my favourite. The writing is simply excellent. Lindsay Crouse is FANTASTIC as the narrator, really bringing to life Annie's psychosis, while giving Paul a meek yet determined voice. I cannot recommend this book enough, to classic King fans, book fans, horror fans, psychological drama fans etc. Finally having this digitally is a total blessing as my cassette is more than worn out after all these years.
Final though - GET IT.

a great King story, (so much better than the film), with excellent gripping narration, i usually take a while to adjust to the narrators style but this was so natural and a perfect fit to the story that it took no adjustment at all- one of the best so far. Character voices were consistent, great sound quality, and there were no obvious breaks and no speech quirks to notice. sometimes, in other stories, i got the impression the narrator had been in a different mood on different days of recording, but here the reading was as though it had been done all in one. I usually prefer longer stories, so this ended sooner than i would have liked, but thats because I miss the characters when the book ends- the length suits the story perfectly. Highly recommended.
