Stephen King Audio Books – An Efficient Way to Scare Yourself Silly!

Stephen King, one of the most recognized authors on this planet, has written more than seventy works of written terror, suspense, and a bit of humor just for good measure. His works encompass not only novels, but novellas, epic novels, and screenplays. But of all the traditional printed material, none of them come close to the sheer enjoyment of listening to his stories being shared by professional narrators! Stephen King All You Can Books can take you to an entirely different dimension, where your imagination is assisted along by a professional story teller.

What’s The Big Deal Behind Audio Books?

Simply put: TIME. It’s something that seems to grow shorter as each year passes. Each spare minute is filled with jobs, chores, and responsibilities that rarely allow us any time to simply sit back and enjoy ourselves anymore. The unfortunate casualty of our day and age is traditional reading. Honestly, ask yourself this: when was the last time you sat down with a good book (maybe by that cozy fireplace, with a cup o’ joe) and just read? Has it been a while? For me, it’s some distant dream. Everything is about multi-tasking these days, and so why shouldn’t we upgrade reading to the next best thing? Enter audio books.

Audio books allows us to do two things, to kill two birds with one stone. Do you have to walk your dog? Maybe start your exercise routine? Do you have to commute two hours to work everyday? And finally, have you tried reading an actual book while doing these things? Of course not (or at least you shouldn’t!). But audio books give you the freedom to enjoy the reading that you’ve missed, by providing a way to include the hobby in your multi-tasked, rat-raced world. In other words: walk your dog, listen to Stephen King audio books. Driving to work? Throw in the Dark Tower series on your way to work – and not only enjoy it, but make travel time go by faster!

Who Narrates Stephen King Audio Books and Are They Any Good?

I will say one thing, and anyone who has ever listened to audio books can attest to this: the narrator can make or break a story hands down. Just imagine Ben Stein’s deadpan voice reading Stephen King’s stories. Sounds boring doesn’t it? That’s where talents like Frank Muller, George Guidall, and even Stephen King himself come to the rescue. If you’re really lucky, you’ll not only get one narrator, but a fully dramatized cast for your audio book (even better).
