A bit late posting this one up as I’ve been busy lately and just haven’t had the time. James has reached Firestarter – his 9th King book and finds it a bit meh. I listened to the audiobook of Firestarter a couple of weeks back and really enjoyed it. I agree that it’s probably not the bsst thing King has ever written – solid rather than spectacular with a few great set pieces when Charley unleashes her powers. Like a lot of earlier King books it also rips along at a fair old pace – every time I’ve read the book I’ve found to be a real page turner and was suprised to find the audiobook had the same effect to the extent I was running around all weekend finding excuses to get my headphones out and listen to a bit more! Being a father of two girls I also found a lot more resonance in the plot and more sympathy with Andy McGee.
