4 ★ Audiobook⎮Seriously, does this guy ever disappoint?! Stephen King is always a sure thing for enjoyable reading and a guaranteed cure for a reading slump. This book was somewhere between 4 and 4.5 stars. It was a great Halloween read that left me adequately spooked, but still able to sleep at night. He always strikes the perfect balance for me between spooky and terrifying. This story was amazingly simple, yet thought-provokingly complex at the same time. If every other author on Earth could take notes from him on this, that would be ideal. This novel also paired nicely with AHS: Hotel. I had it in my mind to save the sequel for next October, but I highly doubt that will actually happen. Let’s see how close I can get to next October without reading Doctor Sleep…

Narration reviewI very much enjoyed listening to this narrator (Campbell Scott), a pattern I have noticed among Stephen King audiobooks. If his voice sounds familiar, it’s because Scott is actually and accomplished television/movie actor, as well as narrator. ♣︎
