Listeners expecting another macabre tale from Stephen King may be surprised by this audiobook—but pleasantly so. A timely tale about finding common ground, the story is set in the familiar town of Castle Rock, a place where, as in all small towns, people have deep-rooted differences. It’s narrated by the author, who has a keen sense of pacing and fun accents for his Maine characters. And for readers who appreciate King’s short stories, a bonus included in the audiobook is “Laurie,” a tender short story about a man and his dog. Published by Simon & Schuster Audio.
