Great narration!

4 out of 5 stars

Well, as far as the book itself goes, it's basically a good story - a bit exaggerated and long-winded in places, but definitely worth a read (I couldn't quite figure out how people seemed to almost explode into pieces at the merest touch of the assassin - was this implied magic?).
The highlight for me was the narration - Steven Pacey has a superb range of voices and his characterisation of 'Friendly' always made me laugh.

Five stars!

Superb narration by Kenneth Branagh - he injects such realism into the narrative. He must be my favourite male narrator of all time!

Juliet Stevenson's is the version to get if you want brilliant narration! Clear and with feeling - beautifully done.

Unbelievably good!

After being sorely disappointed by 'Cell', 'Under the Dome' was OK, but this is one of King's best books and the story is so much more than the Kennedy plot.

Also, hats off to Craig Wasson, the narrator - intelligently read, with changing voices for different characters but not ridiculously exaggerated and dramatic as some narrators are (e.g. The Talisman).

First rate, gripping story!
