Bag Of Bones

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Stephen King

Narrated By: Stephen King

Date: June 2005

Duration: 22 hours 0 minutes


Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, a powerful tale of grief, of love's enduring bonds, and the haunting secrets of the past.

Set in the Maine territory King has made mythic, Bag of Bones recounts the plight of forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who is unable to stop grieving following the sudden death of his wife Jo, and who can no longer bear to face the blank screen of his computer.

Now his nights are plagued by vivid nightmares, all set at the Maine summerhouse he calls Sara Laughs. Despite these dreams, or perhaps because of them, Mike returns to the lakeside getaway. There he finds his beloved Yankee town held in the grip of a powerful millionaire, Max Devore, who will do anything to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother. As Mike is drawn into their struggle, as he falls in love with both mother and child, he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed here—and what do they want of Mike Noonan?

First published in 1998, Bag of Bones was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. It was lauded at its publication as “hands down, Stephen King’s most narratively subversive fiction” (Entertainment Weekly) and his “most ambitious novel” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).

    I'm a huge King fan and have read most of his work and this book is easily in my top 5. It starts slow, but what great King novel doesn't, but give it a couple chapters and you'll be hooked.

  • Terri

    I loved this book. Stephen King never disappoints

  • Brian P.

    great book, but kind of slow at times.

  • William S.

    Another great novel by S. King

  • Wyatt W.

    It's great to hear King himself narrate his own books, and he always does a great job. However, I really just didn't care for this book at all. Kind of a run of the mill ghost story. Not what I expect out of King, but if you enjoy ghost stories you'll probably like this one.

    Great book! Not the first time I’ve read it, but it is the first time I’ve listened to it. I liked hearing it read by the author because the story was being heard the way the author intended as opposed to someone else putting their own touch on it. He read it well.
