I never realized just how many words King uses to get to the point until I listened to this audiobook for the third time. This book is seriously long but his storytelling skill still manages to grab my attention. I remembered a vague feeling of gloom hanging over this book as I picked it up for another listen but I had forgotten several of the extremely brutal plot twists and secrets the book contained. I sent this on because I don't think I can take another listen at this point. Some of the stuff in this story is just so sad . .
