Tommyknockers is one of King’s book I got more appreciation for as the years went by & I revisited it. Edward Herrmann is a big part of that. Great voice & the right cadence. The book takes a while to get going but it picks up. A good one to listen to in the summer.

Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

I remember when I first tried to read this book years ago, when it came out, it didn’t click with me. However the audiobook is great, the narration is perfect. It’s a really beautiful, haunting story about marriage & loss. Mare Winningham’s voice is perfect to relax to but still be enthralled by.
