    Description

    There was a new shop in town. Run by a stranger. Needful Things, the sign said. The oddest name. A name that caused some gossip and speculation among the good folks of Castle Rock, Maine, while they waited for opening day. Eleven-year-old Brian Rusk was the first customer and he got just what he wanted, a very rare 1956 Sandy Koufax baseball card. Signed. Cyndi Rose Martin was next. A Lalique vase. A perfect match for her living room decor. Something for everyone. Something you really had to have. And always at a price you could just about afford. The cash price that is. Because there was another price. There always is when your heart's most secret, true desire is for sale.

    ©1991 Stephen King (P)2008 Penguin Audiobooks

    Great Book and narration

    Great story and wonderful narration from the author. The only thing out of place is the music. Totally unnecessary. Still worth a listen though!

    Why ?

    What did you like best about Needful Things? What did you like least?

    What is WITH the random music ? I'm really not liking it !

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    No loud unexpected music !

    What aspect of Stephen King’s performance would you have changed?

    The music

    Was Needful Things worth the listening time?

    I'm sure the story is worthy of the master wordsmith that is Stephen King but I just can't concentrate on it.

    Hang in there.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not bad, at first it took some time for me to get used to Stephen King's raspy voice, I am not always a fan of Authors reading their own work, just because you can write dosn't mean you should read it. However, once through that it was ok.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The characters, I always like Kings mix of busy characters coming and going and their individual lives within the story. As usual I am finding all this effort goes into the story and characters yet the ends don't seem to hold or produce the impact I expected.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The use of Raul Esparza [Narrator for Under the Dome] may have been a better choice than the Author himself.

    Could you see Needful Things being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    This book was made into a movie in the 80's I believe.

    Any additional comments?

    All in all an ok book to listen to, just allow yourself to get beyond Mr King's rough voice.
    Enjoy.

    Another spell binder from mr king

    I read lots of reviews before listening to this book and was a bit worried about the comments on the music. Have no fear. The music is appropriate and fits in wonderfully. As for Mr King narrating the book. I love it. He does it best of all. The story was very clever and I enjoyed every bit of this book.

    Rivetting!!

    This is a " can't put it down" kind of book. Fast moving plot with believable characters. Great read.

    Simply great

    While Mr King might arguably not have the best voice for audiobook narration, there’s something very special (to me any way) hearing the author read his own tale. More so, Mr King’s voice, particularly when narrating Leland Gaunt, took on a slight Vincent Price tone, which I loved.

    I devoured this book, finding reasons to keep my headphones in for longer each day.

    Some reviews also lambasted the music, though I found it helped the story - each key character had his own theme - which helped me keep track as to who was being featured, particularly when the story jumped from character to character.

    After giving this a listen, my next step is to look up the movie version, with Ed Harris.

    Typical early King quality, poor performance

    Why did King narrate this himself? How on earth has he been allowed to narrate 3 (that I know of) of his books? He really needs to stick to the writing, at which he's brilliant. As a narrator... Let's just say I don't think he'd make a living if that was his day job. Good story, but perhaps not up to the awesome standard of most of the work he's produced in the last few years, but hard to recommend in terms of this recording because of his boring, toneless and dreary delivery.

    Wonderfully compelling

    Would you listen to Needful Things again? Why?

    I would listen to this over and over. This book keeps you entranced from beginning to end. This was the second book of Stephen King's I have read and it will not be last.

    Pure King

    Trepidant. If I only had one word for this book it would be trepidant. It moves quickly, it builds the characters consistently up, there are no loose ends or "cul de sacks". I appreciate the effort from the author in the reading, not professional at times but always authentic. When possible, I like the voice of the writer backing up his/her work.
    It is pure King. What you see, is what you get.

    abstrus

    sehr viel Personal unterwegs und wenn man das Prinzip erstmal verstanden hat, was relativ früh der Fall ist, wird die Geschichte extrem langweilig. Dass geheimnisvolle Kraefte am Werk sind, ist bei King ja nicht überraschend, aber hier schwer zu akzeptieren. Ein sehr schwaches Werk.
