Description

A compelling and chilling suspense novel that will delight all fans of King's best-selling Hodges Trilogy. 

Following the phenomenal success of his Bill Hodges series - Mr Mercedes, Finders Keepers and End of Watch, all number one best sellers - Stephen King has written an enthralling crime thriller with a unique twist. 

When an 11-year-old boy is found murdered, forensic evidence and reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach. But the jailed suspect, arrested in a public spectacle, has an alibi, and further research convinces Detective Ralph Anderson that the coach was indeed out of town. So how can he have been in two places at the same time?

Will Patton is awesome!

Enjoyed this book discovering new characters and catching up with an old one. Really enjoyed the story, which Will Patton sublimed with his greatly entertaining story telling and awesome voices. It’s the first time I heard Patton on audio book and now looking for other audiobooks with him ❤️

spooky story

great audio book. an exhilarating performance, the story builds up the tension until the end you are left wondering until the supernatural showdown once more we descend into the underworld lair of a child killing shapeshifting monster . Stephen king has once again done exactly what he does best. Much enjoyed.

Fun ride from one our best writers

I've just finished reading this, and after looking over the reviews, feel it's worth adding my 10 cents. King suffers from having written some of the world's most loved novels: The Shining, Shawshank Redemption, IT, Song for Susannah (obviously kidding about that last one). To say this isn't his best book, is not to say it's not still of a standard most other current authors would give their eye-teeth to reach. I actually enjoyed it more than the other Mr Mercedes books (and in fairness, this isn't really a follow on in any important way from those save for the inclusion of one character).

As King gets older, his characters are becoming more layered, more nuanced. They are flawed and don't always make the right decisions, and he allows this room to drive the plots forward in interesting ways. I personally feel in this regard, the author continues to improve in creating stories that have not just great ideas and clever prose, but heart. The Outsider features a premise that is interesting, character reactions diverse and for the most part believable, and it has a very satisfying villain and conclusion.

As a narrator, Will Patton totally nails it for me. (although I gather from the other reviews he is a little 'Marmite') I didn't find his interpretation of Holly in the least annoying, and his characterization of the villain was down right chilling.

Definitely worth your consideration.

Plot takes a strange turn towards the end

Really enjoyed this book when I first started listening - the character development, suspense and pace of the book all indicated to me that we were heading towards a fantastic plot twist. Alas, that was not the case. 70% through the book I wanted to stop reading. Ending was extremely disappointing. Narration was good through! I saw other reviewers disliking the narrator but i think he did a really good job voicing all the different characters

Great story, weird narrator

I really enjoyed the intriguing mystery but the narrator reads Holly's character in an awful, offputting, halting manner that made any part with her speaking not very enjoyable at all.

A Kingtastic tale

Twists and turns with characters that you'll grow to either love or hate with a passion. A book you don't want to put down and at the same time don't want it to end. King and Patton combo never disappoint.

Gripping

Another great read by the Master of gore & mayhem. At times terrifying, at times warm & touching. Needless to say I enjoyed it very much.

Gripping from the get-go!

This is classic King at its finest. A master of language and a genius storyteller, King has yet again crafted an utterly unputdownable story.

Patton brings each one of the characters - and there are many - to life so completely, you can almost see them all.

A word to the wise: Only start reading this book if you can afford to dedicate your time to it - because you won’t be able to stop once you’ve started!

Yet another supernatural

I expected a lot about Terry's father role in this book the script travelled else where to the cave but that too interesting with the narrative. This portion was gripping when Ms. Holly investigated at the hospital where the linkage between the Girls killer and Terry's father was established. Sadly outcasted.

Hope my face stays my face.

Great story but the speaker Will Patton gave it the perfect spin. Unbelievable his variety of voices and their characters behind them.

Audio is not great

Story and performance good, but the audio crappy as it was not properly adjusted. It has high swings in volume making it hard to listen to at times.
