Publisher's Summary

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....

Music Spoils the Book

What did you like best about Insomnia? What did you like least?

Music during the chapters drowned the narration and was pointless. A shame.


If you’ve listened to books by Stephen King before, how does this one compare?

Had to give up because of the music intervention.


What didn’t you like about Eli Wallach’s performance?

Eli was fab, music drowned him out.


Did Insomnia inspire you to do anything?

Write a petition not to use music on audiobooks.


Any additional comments?

I hope this is not a new trend, as i will not be buying. Returned.

Stephen King Insomnia

Read wonderfully by Eli Wallach, for me he gives the character of Ralph Roberts his heart and soul. I was keen to check in each day to find out the mysteries that Ralph discovers regrading the little bald doctors and there midnight forays around the comunity. Also what is Ed Depneau's obsession with the eponimous Crimson King and his total rage over Susan Day's visit regarding pro choice for women.
At the heart of the story is Ralph friendships and his coming to terms with his insomnia and new abilities which lead him ever closer each night to the envitable confrontation with the scissor wielding creatures and there true intentions.
