Publisher's Summary

A "wondrously frightening" (Publishers Weekly) tale of terror and number-one national best seller about a writer's pseudonym that comes alive and destroys everyone on the path that leads to the man who created him.
Thad Beaumont would like to say he is innocent. He'd like to say he has nothing to do with the twisted imagination that produced his best-selling novels. He'd like to say he has nothing to do with the series of monstrous murders that keep coming closer to his home. But how can Thad deny the ultimate embodiment of evil that goes by the name he gave it - and signs its crimes with Thad's bloody fingerprints?
The Dark Half is "a chiller" (The New York Times Book Review), so real and fascinating that you'll find yourself squirming in Stephen King's heart-stopping, blood-curdling grip - and loving every minute of it.

My First King Book

This is my first Stephen King book (or audiobook) and I don't consider it a bad start. I enjoyed it and generally was surprised that the first few chapters had generally funny moments. As for the main story I enjoyed it, it was a good thriller. My only gripe was the middle part where anyone could have forgotten this was a supernatural story. not that it wasn't bad it just felt like it was taken out of a different story. but it picked back up in the last third and went off with a bang. The narrator was good and did his best which was good enough. I recommend it.

Not King's Best, But Not Without Charm

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but only if they are big fans of Stephen King. Those who have not yet read many of King's books would be better off elsewhere.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen King again?


Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes where Pangborn interviews Thad about the details of the crime are all very well done.

Could you see The Dark Half being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

It is already a movie.
