    "Lost is the writers craft in this "new" way of presenting audio books."

    One of the great joys of listening to, or reading, a polished author like Stephen King, is listening to the art his craft makes from words. Perceiving layers of meaning and appreciating clever and innovative description and turn of phrase.
    All of this, is lost completely in this rendering that leaves one groping blindly through an often confusing sound scape that can only really hint at the rich experience that the text itself would provide.
    The words of an accomplished writer contain a richness that is often lost in conversion to other media. For this reason we often read books in preference to cinema viewing.
    This audio experience, while delivering high quality sound, is the very distant poor cousin to cinema. What is lost of the authors art in cinematic production is again lost tenfold in this format.
    I gave up on listening to it. Should this become the audible standard, I'll unsubscribe and return to printed text (making the enjoyment of listening on long drives a memory as distant as any experience of enjoyment from this recording).
    Quality sound and acting, but lost is the Author and the richness of his words are lost. It's not about the plot, it's about the author, the words, the insight and depiction, a point Stephen King himself makes in his own writing.

    "A great short story but a sub par narrator"

    I have read this story before and was looking forward to the audio version. Not a fan. Perhaps the narrator needed a little more time to get into the story. I don't know but I was surprised at how the narrator made this story boring.

    "Missed opportunity"

    I'm a huge fan of King but this left me disappointed. The audio is presented with a whole bunch of sound effects and voices panned in and out to make it seem like you are there.
    The reality is that they should have just been faithful to the source material and presented it like a normal audiobook.
    King's writing is so good it doesn't need gimmicks like this. The strange audio presentation is distracting and it doesn't add anything to the experience.
    Maybe some people who prefer movies/find books too slow or something might find it to their taste, but if you don't like books, why are you on Audible.

    "What?"

    This is staged as a performance with amazing sound effects. In reality when played on a car stereo most of the dialogue waqs unitelligable due to accents and production with occasional well ground out phrases. " what, do you mean the secret government facility?, something strange going on, we're getting out of here"
    Which is what I did. The book is probably good.
