Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband Scott two years ago, after a twenty-five year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools. Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited. Perhaps King's most personal and powerful story ever, Lisey's Story is about the wellsprings of creativity, the temptations of madness, and the secret language of love.



  • Stephen King never fails to impress with the range of his writing and producing stories that you just can't put down. Lisey's story is a great mix of a wife dealing with death of her husband and Stephen kings usual other worldly factor.
  • While Lisey may be the narrator, this is really the story of a crazed author haunted by a tragic childhood and his visits to another dimension where he gets ideas for his best selling books. Sounds like an autobiography to me! A solid Stephen King novel for fans and newbies to the genre.
  • I've read the book before, and enjoyed it, but the audio version, with narration (by Mare Wittingham) was incredible. Really made a difference. Overall I would definitely recommend this for other King fans.....
  • I really enjoyed this book. Stephen King has never let me down with any of his works. His story telling ability is truly wonderful. I especially enjoy this. I thought the narrator did a good job. My only complaint is there are long pauses between chapters sometimes
  • It took me a little while to decide, but I really loved this novel. It started out slow I guess, and I kept changing my mind about the narrator, because her voice when she was reading as Sparky Landon was grating...but in the end I suppose it was supposed to be, and I certainly never wondered which character was speaking. The story was great, if you give it a chance, and the second set of cd's are a bit better than the first.
  • I have to admit that when I first started this book I almost sent it back a few times....It had to be one of the most difficult Stephen King books that I have had the pleasure of listening to. But once I began somewhere around chapter seven something amazing happened....The book finally started making sense. In my opinion "Lisey's Story" is probably King's best work to date. I highly recommend that anyone who is having a difficult time with the start of this book to stay with it...the journey is so worth it! The use of words in this book is so clever that I found myself even using them in my everyday life...Once the story finished I longed to know what happened next to Lisey...and still think about her each day. "Lisey's Story" is not a book for someone looking for a quick thrill or a horror story...but it was one of the most horrifying books King has written.
  • Very intense look at the lasting effects of childhood tragedy, and unconditional love. This time King details a horror that lurks at the fringes of many lives. Unfortunately, I will never be able to use my OXO can opener again...
  • This book was very compelling, but at the same time, sometimes I had to just put it on pause and do something else. It was a very intimate look at other people's pain, laid out bare, and at times it was almost too much. the journey, though, was completely satisfying.
  • Great story, but the pauses between chapters become very inconvenient, and border on disrespectful to the listener. In fact, they ARE disruptive to the listening process. I am not sure if Mr. King intended these 35-65 second pauses to mean anything, but all they do is make me check if my player is still working. BAD BAD BAD!! It really ticked me off when I thought that the 90 second pause for the end of the chapter caused me to try to restart my book, The actual narrator is very good at delegating voices consistently, but the narration score is for the PAUSES!! Stupid, stupid move, idiots!
