View Full Version : AUDIO BOOKS - BEST OF!!!
March 25th, 2013, 02:04 PM
I have to say, I really enjoyed Delores Caiborne as an Audio Book. The first person narrated way the book was written transitioned BEAUTIFULLY to Audio.
IT was well read, as was Eye of the Dragon. But the reader for NightShift had an annoying quality to his voice. Anyone have any recommendations of your favorites?

Anything narrated by Frank Muller. Literally: anything.

I haven't heard them all but from the ones I've heard, my favorites are:
Apt Pupil (Frank Muller)
The Gunslinger (Frank Muller)
I think my favorite ones read by Steve are:
Hearts In Atlantis. He shares the reading of this book with William Hurt. I wasn't crazy about William Hurt's part but Steve's reading of the "Hearts In Atlantis" story is superb.
From Everything's Eventual - "In The Deathroom" & "Lunch At The Gotham Cafe"

I have disliked audiobooks since I listened to the Gunslinger and realized I pronounced Roland wrong. That was 15 years ago or so and I'm not over it yet.

How could you pronounce "Roland" wrong? :umm: What did you hear?

I heard Raw-land (that is not entirely accurate but it's the closest I can come up with) in my head but it's Row-land.
I hope that makes sense.

I have so many audiobooks, I don't know where to start. SK himself does a great reading of Needful Things. Anything Frank Muller ever read was superb! A good reader really can bring a book to life.

I remember listening to the audio-drama of The Mist back in the day. Not an audiobook per se, but I'd pick this as my favorite.

As I've mentioned before, I usually have one audiobook going at all times. I walk my dog every evening and love listening to audiobooks on my nightly walk. So, I picked up the audiobook of Danse Macabre last week and have been listening to it the past couple of days. I mean no disrespect to the narrator, William Dufris, he does a fine job BUT SK should be the narrator of this book. The book is written in such an informal style, it's like SK is sitting across from you giving you his take on recent horror films and pop culture only you don't hear him, you hear someone else. It just doesn't sound right. I'm enjoying it anyway (again) but someone tell Steve when he has some spare time :biggrin2:, he needs to get in a recording studio and make this right.

I listened to the Carrie audiobook which I thought was really good. It was actually narrated by Sissy Spacek who played Carrie White in the original movie and SK did the introduction himself.

I use them at work, so listen to Audio Books all the time. Im currently listening to DT 4...decided to take a new route to the tower via Audio. :) It's amazing what a different experience it is. Really enjoying Frank Mueler (sp?) as a reader he even does the womens voices well! Not looking forward to a reader change in Book Five.

I liked The Mist, too. Also, liked The Boogeyman (pretty scary to listen at night). Carrie was also okay.

I so agree with anyone that thinks Frank Muller being on of the best readers of SK's novels!!!!!!!!

I especially like when Sai King does his own forwards...it's like he is talking to ME! Best of the forwards (so far) is Why I was Bachman :)

I would say that 11/22/63 is a GREAT READ!!!

IT narrated by Steven Webber is awesome. He really brings all the characters to life, and his Pennywise is brilliant.

Justin Long is phenomenal in "Everything's Eventual". Probably my favorite reading of them all. I like his acting a lot too but I can't see him on TV without thinking "Dinky Earnshaw". One of my other favorites is Craig Wasson's reading of "Blockade Billy." He is perfect for the book and his delivery is right on. I laugh out loud a lot listening to that one. I may be biased because it's one of my favorite stories but John Slattery does a fantastic job on "Duma Key" also.
I agree with the Frank Muller comments. I especially loved his reading of "The Night Flier". Such a delightfully evil voice.
