Didn't click with me, though the narration is good

I love Steven Kind, but this book didn't connect with me. It's not a bad story, I think vampires are just too overdone in this post-twilight era. Maybe I would've liked it when it came out.

Not my favourite nor least favourite Stephen King book. But having Dexter read it to me makes it one of my favourite audiobooks for sure.

This one took me by surprise. It's not horror, more like a period piece with a pinch of supernatural. Very skilled writing and a great multi-generational story that just sucks you in. I really enjoyed it. It is a bit slower moving and not as action packed as others in the genre, so if that's what excites you this might not be the best fit for you. But I'd recommend giving it a chance regardless.

Pretty Decent

I thought the first and third acts were really engaging and exciting. i enjoyed the ending as well. But act 2 failed to grab me and I found it drawn out and boring. I think this is a result of the plot point and I don't think it could be avoided by King. He had to fill that part of it. Still enjoyed it though and the narration was good.

Great Narrator

My first King book. I loved it. The narration is some of the best I've ever heard. So many characters and written and read so well. Would highly recommend.
