Mr Mercedes My Kind of Story

Believe it or not this was my first Stephen King book. I was totally enthralled. Narration was fantastic and the story had me on the edge of my chair and high anticipation for the next chapter. Can thoroughly recommend.

You won't turn it off !!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Ripping good plot, never dull.

What other book might you compare Mr Mercedes to, and why?

King's thrillers do not disappoint !

What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Emotion & clear speech

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh definitely !!

LOVED IT

I have always been reluctant to read a Stephen King Novel believing regrettably thinking that all his stories were fearful and scary but I bit the bullet and my goodness I loved it. The story line was clever, intriguing, holding my interest all the way to the end. Undeniable a great thriller!

King is king

Stephen King can spin a yarn with the best. In fact, his books seem more alive and engaging and than many other authors.

I'm not a huge fan of his strictly horror writing, but if he can continue in this vein I'll read them all!

Cliched, Predictable but Brilliant

Yes, it's nicked part of almost every private-eye-hunts-serial-killer book ever written, from Wilkie Collins to Chandler and beyond. Yes, you could plot the beginning, middle and end without too many mistakes.

But that old formula in a great storyteller's hands can grip like nothing else, which is why we're still watching Sherlock and why JK Rowling's equally cliche-ridden latests are selling like hotcakes.

In other words, couldn't put it down (or whatever the audio equivalent may be). Highly recommended, have already downloaded the follow-up.

King on form yet again

Mr Mercedes has great pace, almost breathless sometimes . If you have ever liked a Stephen King novel, then I reckon you will like this one very much. Some decent characters, lots of action and tension - a classic page-turner, well read by Will Patton. But too straightforward, dare I say simple, for this fan - hence only 4 stars. Best for me would be Bag of Bones or Hearts In Atlantis, both available unabridged from audible. But don't get me wrong - Mr Mercedes is a really great listen!
