The Dead Zone - Stephen King

I was so thrilled to get this one, because it's finally been released on audio! I remember really loving it when I last read it - as a teenager. But now...

 

Okay, it's pretty dated, and it's not the usual off-with-a-bang start that I get from SK books. And I'm a little disappointed with James Franco's narration. I like him okay as an actor, but he's not especially skilled as a reader of audiobooks.
