Publisher's Summary

The classic story from the Different Seasons collection.
In The Shawshank Redemption, a man convicted of a bloody murder lives in a prison brutally ruled by a sadistic warden and secretly run by a con who knows all the ropes and pulls all the strings. He has more brains than anyone else in the sinister slammer and has a diabolically cunning plan of revenge that one can guess - until it's far too late.


What the Critics Say

"When two giants team-up, power follows. King needs no introduction, and Library Journal calls Muller the first superstar of audio. In this program Muller tells King's earthy story of perseverance in Shawshank Prison in raw, gutteral tones. Harsh though the story is, the delivery carries the intimacy of a friend talking to the listener from the passenger seat....Muller's flawless reading enriches King's powerful story, providing a superlative audio program."

Hard to put down. One of my favourite Stephen King books. No horror here but a very good story. Frank muller, as always, is the perfect narrator.

Better than the movie of the same name..

Would you listen to The Shawshank Redemption again? Why?

Yes, once I forget it I'd definitely listen to it again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shawshank Redemption?

The details given in the book that are left out or changed in the movie, which I enjoyed all the same (the movie I mean)

What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great narration

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Shawshank Redemtion is an excellent title.. I'd put a tag line like Life of an innocent man in an American Prison and a crooked warden!

Any additional comments?

If you liked the film, read this book. It's great.
