LOVED IT

I have always been reluctant to read a Stephen King Novel believing regrettably thinking that all his stories were fearful and scary but I bit the bullet and my goodness I loved it. The story line was clever, intriguing, holding my interest all the way to the end. Undeniable a great thriller!

King is king

Stephen King can spin a yarn with the best. In fact, his books seem more alive and engaging and than many other authors.

I'm not a huge fan of his strictly horror writing, but if he can continue in this vein I'll read them all!

Cliched, Predictable but Brilliant

Yes, it's nicked part of almost every private-eye-hunts-serial-killer book ever written, from Wilkie Collins to Chandler and beyond. Yes, you could plot the beginning, middle and end without too many mistakes.

But that old formula in a great storyteller's hands can grip like nothing else, which is why we're still watching Sherlock and why JK Rowling's equally cliche-ridden latests are selling like hotcakes.

In other words, couldn't put it down (or whatever the audio equivalent may be). Highly recommended, have already downloaded the follow-up.

Mr Mercedes -Stephen King

Well Mr King does it again what a story, as soon as this book started I new it was going to be one of those books that you just could not stop listening too. Right from the start of the book it all happens then the story comes together as retired policeman Bill Hodges goes back to a case that was never solved which little does he know that he his being watched himself from the crazy psychopath its so gripping well recommended great narrator too.

Mr Mercedes My Kind of Story

Believe it or not this was my first Stephen King book. I was totally enthralled. Narration was fantastic and the story had me on the edge of my chair and high anticipation for the next chapter. Can thoroughly recommend.

You won't turn it off !!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Ripping good plot, never dull.

What other book might you compare Mr Mercedes to, and why?

King's thrillers do not disappoint !

What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Emotion & clear speech

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh definitely !!
