Storm of the Century Audiobook Overview
#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King presents an original screenplay and major television event set in Maine’s remote Little Tall Island. Storm of the Century Audiobook, alternatively known as Stephen King’s Storm of the Century, is a 1999 horror audiobook written by Stephen King.
For the first time in Stephen King’s remarkable publishing history, the master storyteller presents an all-new, original tale written expressly for the television screen.
Stephen King started writing Storm of the Century Audiobook as a novel, but it evolved into the teleplay of an ABC TV miniseries. Set in Maine’s remote Little Tall Island, the tale is all about vivid small-town characters, feuds, infidelities, sordid secrets, kids in peril, and gory portents in scrambled letters.
The calamitous snowstorm is nothing compared to the mysterious mind-reading stranger Linoge, who uses magic powers to turn people’s guilt against them – when he’s not simply braining them with his wolf-head-handled cane. Don’t even glance at that cane – it can bring out the devil in you. Just as The Shining was concerned with marriage and alcoholism as much as it was with bad weather and worse spirits, Storm of the Century is more than a horror story. It’s creepy because it’s realistic.
They’re calling it the Storm of the Century, and it’s coming hard. The residents of Little Tall Island have seen their share of nasty Maine Nor’easters, but this one is different. Not only is it packing hurricane-force winds and up to five feet of snow, it’s bringing something worse. Something even the Islanders have never seen before. Something no one wants to see.
Storm of the Century is technically a teleplay, but let’s not split hairs. This audiobook was good and certainly packs a wallop but I found the play format to be a distraction and hindrance rather than a boon. Mr. King can surely write about some painful things-I just think this book might have had more punch if it had been presented as a regular novel instead.
This audiobook grabs you right at the beginning and does not let your go until way after you finish. It will keep you thinking about how society really thinks and acts. Great movies. I would read a chapter then watch it on the tube to compare. Almost identical and well done! The characters chosen to play the roles were the best choices.
From the first of Storm of the Century Audiobook Mp3, you are just sitting there trying to take it all in, the killing of an old woman starts it off, and the ending is just…Stephen King!
