A welcome catch up to the original book! :)

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 20-04-16

Read the original a couple years ago and a welcome return to catch up with lives of people that, while have never met, feel have known a lifetime! Laura, the reader, encouraged that feeling with her pleasant, gentle, sing song voice :)

Would you consider the audio edition of The Shining to be better than the print version?

Yes.

What did you like best about this story?

Danny's strength as a kid through the ordeal he went through, I would have ended up a basket case after all that, OMG!!

What about Campbell Scott’s performance did you like?

Very good and a great accompaniment to the movie, as good as Jack Nicolson played the lead as an actor!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Jack turns back to his normal self for a moment and tells Danny to run and get out of The Overlook! The last moment of lucid sanity .

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Would have done had it not been for narrator who has a boring monotone voice. LOVE Alice in Wonderland as a story and so this came as a disappointment! :(

What did you like best about this story?

Classic and love the characters!! :)

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Yearsley?

Stephen Fry - his reading of Harry Potter series heard recently was magical and sparkling and believe he would bring the same to this well loved classic!!

Do you think Alice in Wonderland needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, its a book complete in itself.

Any additional comments?

Please refer to comment 're narrator above: a book as classic and well loved as this is DESERVING of not just a good narrator but an EXCELLENT one!
