Description

Winner of the 2009 Audie Award for Fiction

A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else:

"Edgar, does anything make you happy?"
"I used to sketch."
"Take it up again. You need hedges...hedges against the night."

Edgar leaves for Duma Key, an eerily undeveloped splinter of the Florida coast. The sun setting into the Gulf of Mexico calls out to him, and Edgar draws. Once he meets Elizabeth Eastlake, a sick old woman with roots tangled deep in Duma Key, Edgar begins to paint, sometimes feverishly; many of his paintings have a power that cannot be controlled. When Elizabeth's past unfolds and the ghosts of her childhood begin to appear, the damage of which they are capable is truly devastating.

The tenacity of love, the perils of creativity, the mysteries of memory, and the nature of the supernatural: Stephen King gives us a novel as fascinating as it is gripping and terrifying.

Eerily Good!

The king of suspense and spine chilling stories does it again in this one. Now in my top five of his novels. A thought and heart provoking exciting tale.

One of my all time favourites

First, John Slattery's narration is freaking amazing. It totally upped the imapct of the story ,made all the characters, especially Edgar, feel like real living breathing people, gave me the creeps, made me laugh and more than once punched me in the heart bad enough to make me cry. I can see now the difference when a really good actor narrates a book.

Second, the book itself. The writing was beautiful, the characters all felt real, and the plot was super creepy. especially the first 2/3rds of the book. I may have hit pause on the book more than once to calm down when things got spooky. Everything about the paintings, I absolutely loved it.And all the relationships felt true.

I've re-listenedned to this one many many times. And every time it feels like I'm listening to a friend.
This maybe a weird thing to say about a horror story, but this book, for some reason, gives me great comfort.

The only negative I can think of is the last parts of the book . Until then everything was perfect. There's a major gut punch, very well executed, and surprising incident that made me cry for real. But after that, slow buildup of horror seems to deflate. It is understandable though. Once you start explaining the spooks, it gets significantly less spooky. The section at the old house, the hunt for answers felt like a video game with bosses for each levels until the final boss fight, which kinda took away from the intensity of the story that had been there till now. There are also things related to Jack Cantori towards the end that feel like rushed,tacked on conveniences to move the plot along.

Still, the book overall remains a five star read. I keep visiting it over and over again.

Stephen King is weird; and I love it.

as always Stephen King explains very complicated themes and regular day-to-day English. I really like the characters and I really enjoyed this book.

John Slattery is exceptional

I am a huge Stephen King fan and have read the majority of his books. Duma I read when it first was published. I enjoyed it although not my favourite. The reading of this book by John Slattery absolutely brings this book to life. Slattery is incredible throughout.

King keeps it creepy!

Lots of suspense filled moments...interesting characters...plenty of creepy, paranormal activity on an artsy-fartsy backdrop. I enjoyed the narration and I looked forward to my next road-trip and installment of King!
