    I'm currently listening to this and I'm not quite sure what to think. I'm not that far into the story, it seems to be moving a little slow.

    I think you will love it! It is one of my favorite King stories. It has a lot of heart. :monkey_kite::love:

    I got sidetracked on some Christmas quilts I'm making, so not quite yet.

    Let us know. Christmas quilts, how cool! I wish I had more time for that kind of stuff. I finally get back into my sewing box as I had to do surgery on a stuffed animal and then sew a hockey elbow pad. I made an awesome pillow for my oldest son and a lizard tie blanket when he was younger. Thinking that I need to make something for my youngest!

    Oh absolutely! Homemade things from mom when they're little are treasures when they're older!

    Finally finished this and just now got around to posting. I liked it. I didn't love it, but I so love the way he writes that it's right there in the middle of the pack.

    Awesome! I do have my other favorites, but I really thought it was an amazing story. Just love his descriptions. Did you figure out who done it at the end? I had a feeling only just before I read the last scene that (the person he named) was it.

    Me too. I didn't suspect that person until the very end. And I'm one of those people who's guessing the whole way through! Stephen's writing is just so good.

    booklover72 very strange person

    i haven't heard the audio, I have Mile 81 and Ur on Cd , but Somehting is always distracting i can't listen 100%. I enjoyed the Premise of UR. Like the main guy. Oh yeah I cnat sew or make qults seriously, i have never listened to anything by SK on Audiobook because they are all abridged. Dana you will enjoy Joyland. Read it twice. Easy read, but sad.
