This was a great listen. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters, and the unique twist on zombies.

This my most favourite Clive Barker novel. I read it so long ago that I'd forgotten so much about it, until I found Audible and thought I'd love to listen to it instead. Weaveworld gives me the taste of gruesome I expect from Barker, while also entering into the world of fantasy. A definite read.

I loved this book so much that I was terribly disappointed when it ended. Just the weirdest story ever, but with an edgy gruesomeness that just kept me wanting more.

Amazing read!

So, if you're thinking you should watch the movie edition of this book, don't. It's nothing like the book and lacks in so many ways. I wish Stephen wouldn't let the movie industry trash his novels. But hey, I suppose he can. This book, however, was a great read. It has that supernatural vibe with a blending of romance and thriller. Great story.

You either love this series, or you don't. I will say that I enjoyed it much more than I did the movie. It is a love story, for sure, but I feel Stephenie Meyer could have backed off a bit on repeating how beautiful the vampires are. She needed to give the MC a tad more of a character, going deeper into her thoughts and sharing them with the reader so we could better understand why she just wasn't afraid.

Great Story.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to The Chain. The situation the characters are put in is quite unique, at least to me. What it lacked in was that I felt the writer could have gone a bit further and really ramped up tension. But definitely a good listen.

This story was exactly what I would expect from a small town in the US if trapped under a dome. Compelling characters spinning out of control, the need to control each other, fear, with that undertone of WTF are we going to do. Great story. Thanks Stephen.

In my teens, I was a Stephen King fan, so decided to listen to some of his stories on audible. Being a writer myself, I now see the appeal to his stories. Stephen creates compelling characters, and the characters in The Outsider were nothing short of that. I loved this book. Stephen's word choice speaks to his audience. He doesn't try to dazzle us with big words or poetic descriptions. He just tells a damn good story.
