Mr Mercedes

Would you listen to Finders Keepers again? Why?

I'd want to listen to this and Mr Mercedes again prior to the follow up being released. It's been a refreshing change to read a King novel without the fantasy element.


What other book might you compare Finders Keepers to, and why?

Obviously it's difficult not to compare this book to Mr Mercedes. I loved the twists and turns that befall the protagonist which is different to the structured planning of the villain of Mr Mercedes. The books have developed that universe well and King lets us know we're not in his horror universe in compelling ways.


What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

It's cliched but he really brings the characters to life. Hodges sounds like the gritty 40s PI and Holly is the nervous intellect.


Any additional comments?

I like King's fantastical story writing in his other books but I've enjoyed the fact that this trilogy so far doesn't have that and it's obviously in a different universe from most of the rest of his books. I just hope he sticks to this grounded universe when he rounds out the trilogy in End of Watch, unfortunately it doesn't seem like he will.
