Audible Audiobook, Unabridged
|Free with your Audible trial|
You'll lose a lot of sleep.... Ralph does. At first he starts waking up earlier. And earlier. Then the hallucinations start - the colours, shapes and strange auras. Not to mention the bald doctors who always turn up at the scene of a death.
That's when Ralph begins to lose a lot more than sleep. When he begins to understand why his hitherto mild-mannered friend, Ed, is getting out of control - dangerously so. And why his hometown is about to become the new Armageddon....

With older, ( probably not Wyzer;), eyes, it’s been good to rediscover the references and links to the Dark Tower, It, plus echoes of Rose Madder which probably hadn’t even been released yet... great read.

The characters are wonderful, and are so vivid as well as grounded within the story told, that I never once felt like I was reading about fictional characters.
It was actually exciting for me to get a glimpse of Derry before reading “IT” (I know I am hanging my head in shame.) Because Stephen King’s Maine is so well thought out and executed you forget it’s not real. And the more I’m reading of his work, the more little threads I’m seeing that bind his universe together.
The story itself, without giving spoilers, has a Stephen King signature; blending the surreal and incredible with what could quite easily feel like anyone’s Tuesday. That is what makes him brilliant and what makes Insomnia amazing! You almost feel like you’ve accidentally stumbled across something that you’re not entirely comfortable looking at, like car crash or someone having an emotional meltdown, but you just can’t stop looking at it.
Plus take it from an insomniac, King did his research. And I have had a few times when I was entirely convinced some crazy stuff was happening due to a week with no sleep.
So worth reading not just for the Stephen King fans, but for anyone who is a lover of Thrillers, Suspense and Horror done the right way.
Stay Twisted my lovelies Xxx
The idea of auras is fascinating, and that otherworld feeling...what if...?
Ralph was a likeable character and perfect for the tale, and it was wonderful to read about the older generation for a change.
There were villains and other characters that filled their roles and it was great to read about ordinary folk and 'life', too.
Overall, a fantastic, imaginative story, written in the usual flowing style of this author that captured my interest just as much as it did the first time I read it.
Strangely, I didn't get the usual clarity of the characters and surroundings, something for me was just missing.
The worst part for me was that although the storyline was ok there was nothing to bind it together; what was the big picture? Why were things the way they were? There is nothing that relates to the horrors we are aware of at all.
Set in Derry and features references, characters and locations familiar to readers of IT, Dark Tower series etc.
Constant King readers will find great enjoyment from their familiarisation with Derry and earlier novels set in that town.
Those new too King will not appreciate past reference to various works that refer to Derry.
Anyone suffering from Insomnia will be hoping they do not start seeing colourful auras.
