Never before on a retail CD! Stephen King reads his bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem…

Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to “rescuing” a family from a nonexistent gunman. There’s something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it.

The secrets embedded in Desperation’s landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as one of the travelers, young David Carver, seems to know—though it scares him nearly to death to realize it—so are the forces summoned to combat them. Download and start listening now!

    " I love how Stephen King has managed to invent all sorts of new kinds of bad guys. I know he wrote this a while ago, but I really enjoyed it. I just moved To Buffalo, and Stephen King has made unpacking and setting up my apartment totally fun! This is one of his better ones. I also recommend Tommyknockers, Dr. Sleep, and the Outsider. "
