Everyone knows a guy like Jared: the burnout kid in high school who sells weed cookies and has a scary mom who's often wasted and wielding some kind of weapon. Jared does smoke and drink too much, and he does make the best cookies in town, and his mom is a mess, but he's also a kid who has an immense capacity for compassion and an impulse to watch over people more than twice his age, and he can't rely on anyone for consistent love and support, except for his flatulent pit bull, Baby Killer (he calls her Baby) - and now she's dead.

I had to wait too long for the story to start, and when it did it went 0-100 way too quickly. It was hard to buy into the magical realism, as much of what was presented really wasn’t well-developed. The story was boring, at best, and the underlying issues are there, but not nearly enough time is spent on them. The narrator sounded strange, to be nice, and I just could not get into it. What a waste of time.

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It's a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real. They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made 28 years ago calls them to reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city's children.
Great book to start listening from audible

Sometimes great, other times just plain bizarre

The narrator does a great job with different voices and the emotion communicated through the reading. At times, his rendition of stuttering Bill can be a bit much, but it’s bearable with a bit of patience.
As for the story.... I feel like King’s editor stopped reading at some point. How some of this content made it through to print is beyond me. Shocking stuff. Also, the story too often wastes time describing things that are irrelevant to the plot. At other times, the plot has enormous holes in it, leaving questions that simply cannot be answered.
I didn’t dislike listening to this book, but I didn’t love it.
