Longlisted for the Audiobook Download of the Year, 2007.
Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was a celebrated, award-winning novelist and a complex man. Lisey knew there was a dark place where her husband ventured to face his demons. Boo'ya Moon is what Scott called it ¿ a realm that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed to write and live.

What did you like best about Lisey's Story? What did you like least?

This is the only Stephen King book I've read that I haven't liked. The story takes a long time to get to the point and the repetition of phrases (particularly made up words and pet names) is irritating. It's very different compared to the rest of his works

What about Mare Winningham’s performance did you like?

Her voice is calming and she narrates well

Do you think Lisey's Story needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, I couldn't finish the first one
