Description

You'll lose a lot of sleep.... Ralph does. At first he starts waking up earlier. And earlier. Then the hallucinations start - the colours, shapes and strange auras. Not to mention the bald doctors who always turn up at the scene of a death.

That's when Ralph begins to lose a lot more than sleep. When he begins to understand why his hitherto mild-mannered friend, Ed, is getting out of control - dangerously so. And why his hometown is about to become the new Armageddon....

©1994 Stephen King (P)1994 Penguin Highbridge

Great story and narration. God awful music.

Great story, rivetting. Eli Wallach's voice is a joy to listen to. The only thing was the music, it was terrible and inappropriate. Marred an otherwise excellent read of a great book.

Too much music

What three words best describe Eli Wallach’s voice?

Talented voice artist and very easy to listen to.

Any additional comments?

There is terrible music all through the performance. I assume it is between chapters. It is distracting, detracts from the performance and ruins it. It is also far too loud for the voice of Eli Wallach to be heard clearly. There should be a warning that there is music introduced to the book.

Mostly great

I really liked the story and the narrator was good but the discordant music at the end of chapters was really annoying and unnecessary. It tried too hard to be spooky but was just obnoxious.

Just not that captivating

I've read a number of King titles recently and enjoyed them all. This one wasn't bad. It just isn't especially good. I kept finding myself drifting off thinking about other things. The narrator is top notch however.

Nice yarn. Solid Stephen King. Agonizing music

The music(?) interspersed between chapters and some scenes dominates the result
Don't listen while riding or driving or operating equipment. Some parts are just annoying others are downright painful. Ironically if you read this as you go to sleep... well the effect is counterproductive.

Oh and the the story under all that is quite good.
There are some Dark Tower cross overs. They don't contribute much to story

music is a bit overpowering

Good story, a bit slow but with a good ending, classic Stephen King type of novel. Eli Wallach's narration is very good too but the underlying music can be really disruptive and overpowers the narration at times.

Joyful

This is one of my favorite Stephen King books. The only thing that annoyed the crap out of me was the awful, screeching music

Gutes Buch, Umsetzung ist stellenweise arg nervig

Gibt es irgendetwas, das Sie an diesem Hörbuch ändern würden?

Die Leistung des Sprechers ist insgesamt gut, aber er begeht leider den Fehler vieler Sprecher: eine schlechte Imititation des jeweils anderen Geschlechts, hier also von Frauen. Zudem spricht er recht unbetont, sodass es schwierig ist, über längere Zeit zuzuhören. Außerdem wird die Geschichte immer wieder von absolut grässlicher Musik unterbrochen. Da hat jemand auf den Instrumenten herumgeprügelt. Denkbar schlecht, um entspannt und in Ruhe zuzuhören.

Was hätten Sie anders gemacht, wenn Sie bei diesem Hörbuch Regie geführt hätten?

Weg mit der Musik. Mehr Engagement beim Sprecher einfordern. Kein Falsetto für Frauen.

Würden Sie sich eine Fortsetzung von Insomnia wünschen? Warum oder warum gerade nicht?

Nein, die Geschichte ist abgeschlossen

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Andere sollten sich insbesondere über die Musik im Klaren sein. Ich höre Hörbücher oft abends zum Runterkommen. Die Musik stört dabei absolut, nicht nur, weil sie schlecht, sondern auch, weil sie viel zu laut ist.
