In June of 1999, Stephen King was hit by a van while walking along the shoulder of a country road in Maine. Six operations were required to save his life and mend his broken body. When he was finally able to sit up, he immediately started writing. This book - part biography, part a collection of tips for the aspiring writer - is the extraordinary result.

This is not a writing tutorial. But it’s definitely worth reading. The blend of memoir and advice was fascinating and the content was easy to follow and logically organised in an enjoyable manner. King’s voice is excellent as well, and the audio quality is top notch throughout. All in all a very enjoyable experience, will probably be one of the few books/audiobooks that I will reread/listen.
