I thought the first 200 or 300 pages was Stephen King at his best. His first attempt at crime fiction and it’s brilliant. Then, the book turns into something else entirely, something I don’t love, and a supernatural element is introduced that just did not work for me. So, just a three star rating for me.
Mr. King is still the scariest Author out there! Unique in Everyway..page Turner from beginning to end..
The story is very interesting. I am glad that HBO is making a series based on this book. Looking forward to it.
literally the greatest book i’ve ever read. it is full of suspense, and will get you hanging off the edge of your seat.
Great book👍. Not a big reader, but couldn’t stop reading this book.
Couldn’t put it down.
This is the first time that I felt compelled to uh, provide constructive criticism. The narrator of this book needs to speak up. Way too soft spoken and overuses a hushed/whispered tone. It was exhausting straining to listen. Audiobooks should be spoken, not whispered.
I like Stephen King and have been reading his books for several decades. This story bored me. It was as if he couldn't move the story forward. I felt like I kept reading the same thing over and over again. The story could have been condensed. It really wasn't a story that held any suspense or surprises, you knew exactly where it was going.
King’s storytelling is topnotch in this one. Great characters too.
Outside is a great read, bringing back the original writing and narrtion style of Mr. King. This kept me up all night giving me the thrills and spins as the horror unfolds to a redemption
Similar to the IT ending of killing a shape shifting alien... great read, disappointing ending.
Good story, but why do you have to slip in your political views? That is not why I read your books.
