The Outsider by Stephen King was an intense and creeptastic tale that renewed my faith in King, The audiobook narrated by Will Patton, drew me in as a man with a rock-solid alibi finds himself accused of a heinous crime.
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King was one of my most anticipated fall audio listens, and I am shocked and sad to say, I was not impressed. To be fair, I went into this cold, as I do all of King’s books and didn’t read the synopsis. It is indeed a world where men have to learn to deal without women. If this weren’t King, I probably would have DNFed this around the 50% mark.
GWENDY”S BUTTON BOX by Stephen King & Richard Chizmar was a riveting, twisted audio listen. Narrated by the wickedly talented Maggie Siff, King and Chizmar worked their magic and transported me to the summer of 1974 as our tale begins on the Suicide Stairs in Castle Rock. Would you accept Gwendy’s Button Box?
I read most of the collection in Skeleton Crew previously but could not resist listening especially with a cast of narrators that include some of my favorites like Will Patton, David Morse and Robert Petkoff.
End of Watch by Stephen King is the final book in the Bill Hodges trilogy and it was brilliant. I love King’s work from his classic horror to his twisted tales of supernatural suspense. The Bill Hodges series was the perfect blend of both. I continued listening to audio with End of Watch. Will Patton once again narrated, and I love listening to him. Suspenseful and twisted End of Watch had me holding my breath, shivering and wiping tears from eyes.
