A great read! The narrator did an awesome job!
I noticed that in many parts of the story it cut off. It sounded like someone pressed pause before the word was spoken in full. Many times I thought I lost the signal and the app stopped working. Then the narrator would continue on. It was a great story but hard to listen to.
It was ok I read better
Little letdown with the ending, but a good story overall
Considering King wrote this book as an undergraduate, I was really impressed. Often a bit wordy, however taking the location of the story into account, all you can do is overly describe details and situations to keep the reader interested. Which I was. I felt clostrophobic at times, which was a welcomed feeling as I've never experienced that from a book before. The only reason for the three star rating was the ending. So much build up only to be left with a self-diagnosed ending. All that said, I did enjoy it.
You’ll feel just as tired as the boys. Amazing voice work by Kirby, he was so good I thought I was running out of breath!
Nice dystopian concept and I really appreciated the nod to “The Lottery.” Overall a very entertaining book but as is common with King novels the ending was lacking and seemed like he just got tired of writing. Narration was excellent.
It was a great story. Ending was...
As my first book under King's "Bachman" stories, I didn't know what to expect. It is not your typical King book and should not be approached as such. I may give it another chance somewhere down the line now knowing the storytelling differences between King and his "Bachman" narrative. But off the first listen, it was just alright. The story seemed like it could have been wrapped up a lot quicker but its the tedious length of this book combined with the context of the story that make this one worth finishing. You feel like you are right there with the main character as they walk for their life. It's not a scary story, nor is it thrilling, but the story is good and the narration is fitting. If you read or listen to this book, try to forget King wrote it and you may get more enjoyment out of it than I did.
Pretty good through most of it but I found the ending to lacking.
was so excited for this book until stephen king literally spoiled the ending during his intro
Enjoyed The Bachman Books. This is just 1 of the good stories.
