As much as I love SK as a writer, I don't enjoy his narrator's abilities. I would have left five stars if William Hurt had read the whole deal.
I enjoyed the parts read by SK better than the part read by William Hurt, I really did not enjoy his reading style at all and nearly quit the book except I have read it in the past and loved the story
Three stories in one book. I wish I had known that beforehand. I am a huge dark tower fan, so the low men in yellow coats was outstanding. I couldn’t really get into hearts in Atlantis story and I’m not a huge fan of King as a narrator, so I skipped the rest of that but the first story was so good that it made up for it.
Love the story, but what is with the random music blasting at higher volume than the narrator??? Incredibly annoying
Loved this book!!
Loved it!!! What a great book
I think William Hurt delivered better then he did in the village and Steve king’s narrating was as close to an emotionless zombie as you can get so I would say the first and last books are worth it
I have read almost everything by Stephen king but this was his worst story ever. so bad I couldn't even finish listening to it. Honestly I want my money back for the wasted credit.
Excellent book. Loved the first story the most. William hurt took a bit to get into the pace of his narration but turned out to be one of the best narrators I've listened to.
This has been a very intriguing book. I have listened to this book many years earlier. when I listen to it the first time it was sort of hard to get into, though I did like the first Story. but this time I really enjoyed the book. but the first story is still my favorite. the narrators were very good both of them and I've always enjoyed listening to Stephen King the way he reads. I recommend this book because I grew up in the 60s.
I consider this to be one of Kings finest works, as I have both read and listened to this book more than once. How he weaves each of the 4 stories into one is interesting.
The first story of Bobby Garfield is by far the best of the Bunch, I love the line about the neighbors dog Bowser barking his way into the 20th century.
Narration by William Hurt has to be one of the greatest performances I have heard since I listened to Cannery Row. He is 6 stars good. Even King isn't so bad in the middle stories, but Hurt nails it.
You have to listen to this book, especially if you grew up in the late 50s, the 60s or early 70s.
