LOVED IT

I have always been reluctant to read a Stephen King Novel believing regrettably thinking that all his stories were fearful and scary but I bit the bullet and my goodness I loved it. The story line was clever, intriguing, holding my interest all the way to the end. Undeniable a great thriller!

King is king

Stephen King can spin a yarn with the best. In fact, his books seem more alive and engaging and than many other authors.

I'm not a huge fan of his strictly horror writing, but if he can continue in this vein I'll read them all!

One of the best books I've ever listened to.

Wow. King is the master of suspense, of character development, and of sick little twista and turns that send your stomach twisting, but in a good way. You're not just listening to a story, you're being picked up and flung on a journey. I loved it. The narrator was an absolutely perfect choice.

Engaging Thriller!

Stephen king’s Thriller writing and Will Patton’s narration are a golden match. The novel is a powerful thriller that keeps you wanting more and more. The cat and mouse scenes between the retired detective and the villain keeps you on your toes.

Will Patton brought the story to life!

The narrator managed to paint an excellent picture of the characters with his voice.
Stephen King once again kept me on the edge of my seat...

Superb!

Excellent narration. Compelling narrative with a vicious sense of humor. The best audio book I've listened to.

The Horror is real this time

Stephen King tried his hand at Crime and of course, he did very well. Whether you like his usual horror stories or not, you will have to admit that he is a great story teller. He is a real pro and he proved it again, even if the story is outside of his usual genre. If you expect something supernatural, ghouls, ghosts or monsters of any kind, you will not find it in this book.

Will Patten has the right voice for this narrative and the 14 hours of listening are pure pleasure.

Bill Hodges, a retired detective with an alcohol problem, single, overweight and plagued by suicide thoughts, is haunted by the big case, he never managed to solve. A lunatic murderer drove a Mercedes into a line of waiting people, killing several of them, among them a young mother with her baby. Against all odds the murderer escapes and could not get found.
To Bill's surprise, all of a sudden, the murderer contacts him and everything changes.

The story itself develops slowly, but that is essential to create the dense atmosphere. The pace of the story lets you take in every detail and you become part of it. The characters are built brilliantly and bare of the usual clichés.

There is a lot of suspense in the story, but it is not the usual thriller material. There are some unexpected twists and turns, but action and events are not the core of this novel. The characters, their interaction, their development, their weakness and strength make the story unique.

There are some errors and flaws in minor technical details (no Glock revolver etc.), but I don't think this matters. It is a great story and excellent entertainment.

Gripping

I finished listening to this book in three days. It’s a gripping story that eschews the supernatural but is in a way even creepier than horror stories. The horror lives among us, looking perfectly normal. Great narrator as well.

Durchweg solider und packender Thriller

Tolle Figuren, die trotzdem sie ungewöhnlich sind, sehr glaubhaft rüberkommen. Der Sprecher ist ein Meister seines Fachs.

Laaaangweilig...

Für wen - wenn nicht gerade für Sie - ist dieses Hörbuch besser geeignet?

Eine schier endlos ausgewalzte Story, ohne interessante oder auch nur glaubwürdige Charaktere. Nichts fesselt den Leser, nichts geht vorwärts. Eine Qual zu hören.

Würden Sie sich wieder etwas von Stephen King anhören?

Nein danke.

Was genau mochten Sie an der Sprecherleistung? Was hat Ihnen nicht gefallen?

Tut mir Leid, einfach keine Stimme, die ich gern höre. Definitiv Schwächen bei Frauencharakteren.
