Gwendy's Final Task: The Button Box, Book 3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
King and Chizmar join forces again with a powerful novel that is also the final chapter in the Gwendy trilogy.
When Gwendy Peterson was 12, a stranger named Richard Farris gave her a mysterious box for safekeeping. It offered treats and vintage coins, but it was dangerous. Pushing any of its seven coloured buttons promised death and destruction.
Years later, the button box re-entered Gwendy's life. A successful novelist and a rising political star, she was once more forced to deal with the temptations that the box represented - an amazing sense of well-being, balanced by a terrifyingly dark urge towards disaster.
With the passing of time, the box has grown ever stronger and evil forces are striving to possess it. Once again, it is up to Gwendy Peterson, now a United States senator battling the early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, to keep it from them. At all costs. But where can you hide something from such powerful entities?
Gwendy's Final Task is a wildly suspenseful and at the same time deeply moving novel in which 'horror giants' (Publishers Weekly) Stephen King and Richard Chizmar take us on a journey from Castle Rock to another famous cursed Maine city to the MF-1 space station, where Gwendy must execute a secret mission to save the world. And, maybe, all worlds.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
CD claim there are two "first editions", probably the one that looks like a normal CD book, and one like the one I bought. So If you are going to buy a copy, it might pay you to check it first.
This copy is a major disappointment.
Not me. Beautifully crafted with believable characters and a relevance to current times, this could almost be King’s piece de résistance. I do so hope it’s not.
There are so many other worlds than this.

I would have given this no stars if it was an option
If you have read Gwendy‘s Button Box and Gwendy’s Magic Feather (and please do before purchasing and reading this part) you will not want to miss her last adventure! I truly enjoyed the cooperation between King and Chizmar and how true life events and people are incorporated especially in this last part of the trilogy - in a way you would almost believe it.
Full 5 Stars from my side and a full recommendation for all 3 parts of the story - a cooperation between two authors at its best!
Political and world events of fiction and reality are included in the trilogy, from The Guyana Jonestown mass suicide, To Trumps rise to the Whitehouse.
I found the whole Button box experience catchy and could not stop reading, instantly on to the next book. completing all three in 3 weeks. For Final Task this is the conclusion of the journey of the successful East Coast Gwendyn , and the fate of the powerful Button box! For Final Task the career climbing Gwendy makes it as, a Democratic Senator, who takes to space exploration. For King master of horror there's no horror , but a lot of psychological , and fantasy activities, and just a couple of bumps in the night. Read Gwendys Button Box and Gwendys Magic Feather , before Final Task. It will be hard to be disappointed with this book, however this is much of a lighter King read more associated to Dolores Clairborne than Pet Cemetery.
