Publisher's Summary

The unpause-able novel of one man's quest to find the source of his nightmare and to reverse it before he becomes...nothing at all. This number-one national best seller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, "pulsates with evil...it will have you on the edge of your seat" (Publishers Weekly).
Billy Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when his lack of attention results in the death of an old gypsy lady on the street. Overweight Halleck is a lawyer with connections, though, and he gets off with a slap on the wrist. After the trial, the victim's ancient father curses him with a single word: "thinner". Shedding weight by the week, Halleck is desperate enough for one last gamble...one that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away.
With an introduction by Stephen King on "The Importance of Being Bachman", Thinner is a novel of "undeniable suspense" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) and "genuine chills" (Kirkus Reviews).

Annoying music played throughout

The story was decent, not one of Kings best but I didn't hate it, the actual voice of the narration was good but there is terrible music cast over durring the whole story very annoying.

the music

I don't know why anybody would add music to this. It did nothing for the story It was annoying.
I find myself trying to go to sleep to these books on audio the next thing you know is that you're hearing the most God awful music if you can call it that at the beginning of a chapter in at the end.
