INCLUDES AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH STEPHEN KING

Bag of Bones recounts the plight of bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who is unable to stop grieving even four years after the sudden death of his wife. His nights are plagued by vivid nightmares of their house by the lake. Despite these dreams, or perhaps because of them, Mike finally returns to Sara Laughs, the Noonan's isolated summer home.
He finds his beloved Yankee town familiar on its surface, but much changed underneath -- held in the grip of a powerful millionaire, who seeks 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 of them, he is 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? Download and start listening now!

    " I listened to this audiobook which was read by stephen king. It was really fanrastic. I thought the pace and climax of the book was timed reakly well. The vivid detail and description made me fuuly see, feel and hear the characters. Great ghost story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Echo Lawrence | 1/31/2014

    " Second Glance meets Keeping Faith meets The Color Purple. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen MacIsaac | 1/2/2014

    " I read this book a long time ago, and I had forgotten what happened in it so I had to read it again when I saw ads for it on A&E. I liked it. It was more of a mystery to be solved than just a scary story, although it was still very much a Stephen King story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosario | 12/29/2013

    " The book is too long. It was okay. I like his short stories better than this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 12/19/2013

    " This was a pretty good Stephen King book. It was much easier to follow than some of his other books I've read like Hearts in Atlantis. I enjoyed the story and characters and although there was supernatural stuff in it, I felt like this was much more "believable" than again some of his other books like Tommyknockers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey Raehtz | 12/18/2013

    " This was my first attempt at reading a full length Stephen King book. I was pleasantly surprised that the plot flowed as well as it did. I'd heard that King tends to go off on tangents that don't really add to the overall story, but I didn't really notice it if he did. Now I just have to decide which book to read next. "

    " It was good. I really liked it but it felt a bit long. If you love Stephen King you will probably like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/3/2013

    " This is the most recent book I loved the most. Scary but intriguing. Have not enjoyed Stephen king since this story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allie | 11/23/2013

    " Starts off painfully slow, and King could probably have done away with more than half the book, but the whole second half of the book is a page-turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Hawkins | 11/23/2013

    " A book by an amazing writer from a writer's perspective (plus some sexy, scary drama). What more could you want? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Consetta | 11/1/2013

    " Slow slow slow, I got irritated w/ characters, but had to keep reading. The end gets going and then the story makes sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexgosling | 7/15/2013

    " Storyline feels similar to other king books like Duma key or lisey's story. However still a great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 7/15/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Borjana | 5/2/2013

    " Good plot, interesting points of view, customs, small details, lives, surprising turning points... King's imagination is always outstandingly mesmerizing but scary too... He takes out to the surface things other people run from and deny... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amel Armeliana | 2/20/2013

    " One of Stephen King's masterpiece (at least in my opinion). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun Ryan | 8/17/2012

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jerry Hart | 6/28/2012

    " Boring, surprisingly unfocused and not the least bit scary. I want twenty hours of my life back. The villains are numerous and not interesting, and after a while I stopped caring what the book was about. King, you should be ashamed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 5/7/2012

    " I had to re-read this after seeing the movie. I forgot what a great book this is and the movie really suffered in comparison. Mostly because they changed pretty much everything. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Krafcik-schaffer | 3/27/2012

    " Ive tried to read this book three times now, and i just cant get into it. Its boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chad Gibbons | 12/15/2011

    " Another snooze-fest from King. This book is being sold as 'a haunted love story'. Don't be fooled: It's nothing of the sort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie the bookworm | 10/20/2011

    " Stephen King made me cry in this one! I remember putting the book down with tears streaming down my face saying, "How is it that King has made me cry?" He developed the characters so well that I felt they were my friends. He has really evolved in this one. I have now read it three times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzieo | 5/15/2011

    " this book caught me by surprise.
    as I read, I frowned, but my fist in my mouth, shook my head & many other reflections of what I was thinking. 1 thing I didn't do, I didn't put the book down.
    this is an excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 5/14/2011

    " I generally enjoy Mr. King's books but about the first 100 pages into this one I wasn't sure I was going to be able to finish it. Then suddenly it was a good read and by the end, I was completely hooked. It's a love story with scary elements and a great back tale! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 5/11/2011

    " This character literally wastes away and it is errei to read his perceptions. Steven King leaves nothing unsaid and even his bathroom habits become scarey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 5/11/2011

    " Did you like this one, DJ? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caitlin | 5/2/2011

    " I don't think I was in the mood to be told a ghost story when I picked up this book. My fault. I was on a plane, and not really into the bizarre plot structures and dreamlike prose. I'm sure it is a great book, but I just wasn't enticed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylan | 4/28/2011

    " I started this book ages ago and I never finished it. At the time, I totally loved it. I thought it was one of the best Stephen King novels I'd ever read. I finally decided to finish it years later and was surprised to find that I hated it, especially the ending. So cheesy and ridiculous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen | 4/25/2011

    " The scariest book I've ever read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffanie | 4/21/2011

    " I really loved this book. The storyline built around Michael, Mattie & Kyra are truely amazing, he made you fall in love with the characters, while they are fighting against Max Devore. <3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blythe | 4/20/2011

    " One of those few books by King that is more of a sad one more than scary, but sure as hell a winner "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 4/20/2011

    " What can I say? I love all things King and this is no exception. This is a true ghost story about things that go bump in the night. I love that the hero is just a regular Joe mourning the death of his wife, but he still manages to take down the multi-million dollar bully of the schoolyard. "
