Brilliant.... The best audio book I have listened to. I actually read The Eyes of the Dragon years ago when it was first published and though my memory of the story had faded over time I nevertheless remembered it as being a compelling story. So, seeing it appear on Audible, I decided to give it another "read". Bronson Pinchot's narration is one of the best I've heard. He reads with a theatrical ability that adds depth to the characters and atmosphere to this dark tale of injustice and wizardry, all but turning it into a dramatisation. I shall be keeping my eye out for books specifically narrated by Bronson Pinchot from now on.
King's story-telling is legendary, as anyone who has read The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Tower, The Stand, to name but a few, will tell you. Though this is a break away from King's usual subject matter and more of a fantasy (think Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin) he manages to spin a yarn as believable as Shawshank. Not just for fans of Stephen King, but anyone who enjoys fantasy tales with a mix of tension and suspense. Utter brilliance all round. Get it.

I was keen to listen to this book to find more about Flagg. The story does give us some background information on the character but nothing that really interacts with other King stories, except for the fact Flagg can move between worlds. The story overall was alright although it has a feel to it that it may have been written for a young adult audience as it is not as dark as many of his better novels.
great story from the master! brilliantly read. good fun to the end. i highly recommend it!!
