There was a new shop in town. Run by a stranger. Needful Things, the sign said. The oddest name. A name that caused some gossip and speculation among the good folks of Castle Rock, Maine, while they waited for opening day. Eleven-year-old Brian Rusk was the first customer and he got just what he wanted, a very rare 1956 Sandy Koufax baseball card. Signed. Cyndi Rose Martin was next. A Lalique vase. A perfect match for her living room decor. Something for everyone.

Great narration, let down by tone-deaf musical accompaniment
I really liked this book and I really liked the narration but the sound and music was really off-putting. Don't be too put off by this as it isn't there for the bulk of the book, just select parts. When it is there it doesn't even slightly match the tone of the book. Get rid of it and I would add another star for performance. Overall I would recommend this book despite the sound effects.
