Publisher's Summary

Wentworth, Ohio: a small, friendly town where the Carver children bicker over sweets in the E-Z shop and writer Johnny Marinville is the only resident who minds his own business. On Poplar Street, apart from the impending storm, it's just a normal summer's day - with Frisbees flying, lawn mowers humming and barbeques grilling.
As the paperboy makes his round, he is unaware of the chrome-red van idling up the hill....
Soon the residents will be caught up in a game of wills as the regulators arrive in force to face a child whose powers of expression are just awakening.
If you like The Regulators, don't miss Desperation, written as an unidentical pair.
©1996 Richard Bachman (P)2016 Simon & Schuster Audio

A good book but terrible performance.

The story is everything you would expect from King and a good companion to Desperation. However the performance is terrible. I kept thinking I was listening to an American commercial. The reader cannot even pronounce Tak correctly opting for Tark. It's a shame he didn't listen to Stephen King reading Desperation as this would have informed him.

it was okay.

I read desperation before this and much preferred that. the narration was absolutely fine can't fault that but the story itself just felt forced and asked more questions than it answered.
