Описание

In this #1 national bestseller, "master storyteller" (Houston Chronicle) Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, tells the tale of the contestants of a grueling walking competition where there can only be one winner-the one that survives.

In the near future, when America has become a police state, one hundred boys are selected to enter an annual contest where the winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life. Among them is sixteen-year-old Ray Garraty, and he knows the rules-keep a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Three warnings and you're out-permanently.

A "psychologically dark tale with commentary on society, teenage life, and cultural entertainment, The Long Walk is still poignant decades after its original publication" (Publishers Weekly). This edition features an introduction by Stephen King on "The Importance of Being Bachman."

    This was an absolutely incredible and powerful book about the workings of the mind, and of sanity. The audiobook reader did a good job, there was never any issue with the audio quality, nor was there any background noise.

    I highly recommend The Long Walk, but know that it is a painful, arduous experience.
  • (5/5)
    Really great. Nothing over the top, just a simple compelling story.
  • (5/5)
    This book is great!! The ending was surprising, but appropriate.
  • (3/5)
    Not what I expected, at all. I absolutely hated the ending & instantly regretted even choosing it. It’s literally “the long walk”...& nothing else.
    It could’ve been so much better.
    I might feel differently if I’d have read this before The Hunger Games, (pretty sure the idea for that series came from this book)...but because I didn’t, this book actually feels incomplete to me.

    Love love this book, this is my second time reading it and enjoyed as much the first time.
  • (5/5)
    One of Kings best stories. Works well as audio-book
  • (5/5)
    This was before the Hunger games and Scorpion Trials. I’ve been reading this book over and over for years now. It is still Classic . A Masterpiece. It never gets old. Even better to Listen to it this time around. The Characters come to life .
  • (3/5)
    Poor audio quality. Sounded like every 3rd line was cut off at the end by the editor. Great book though.
  • (5/5)
    This book is a little hard to get into at first, but after the first few chapters the characters just suck you in. It is intense and compelling in a way you would not expect. The emotion delivered through this book is genuine and raw. Do be warned it is very likely to have a strong emotional impact on the reader. Some of the dialogue was cheesy and overly vulgar, and the premise a little far fetched,but this is a great read with a wide variety of characters, simply loved it.
  • (5/5)
    Good book, pretty interesting. I would recommend it. Good book
  • (2/5)
    Just about anything. Disappointed in the ending. And parts of it just dragged on and on. Kept waiting for the point to the story.
  • (5/5)
    I read the book as a young teenager and now in my early 40s I loved it as much and it was well narrated and I adored it as much as I did as a teen and for someone who has trouble reading for medical reasons, this app is the best for books and everything. I adored the story, I love Richard Bachman’s stories as they’re totally different than Stephen king’s ones..l ❤️

    The second time i heard it , i love it
  • (5/5)
    Amazing narration and I enjoyed the thrill and story. His reading from king’s coming out as bachman is amazing,
  • (4/5)
    Pretty good but not the best King I've ever read. Narration was probably a bit lackluster.
  • (5/5)
    Better than The Hunger Game. Yeah. I said it.
  • (4/5)
    Good story but a few brief skips in audio. They were only a second or so each but made the flow weird.

    This was an interesting novel. I enjoyed it enough to listen to it in one day, but I do wish there was more background information and world building. The audio quality was really good and the narrator enjoyable.
