My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have tried reading Stephen King before but have often found his writing too wordy – too descriptive. I like to create pictures in my head as I read but when an author overwrites, I find this rather difficult. Listening to this as an audiobook has changed my opinion of Stephen King. His writing was meant to be heard. It reminds me of the old 1930′s radio programs minus the sound effects (not that I am old enough to remember those), but I love listening to them.
