Quotes & Awards

  • “A chiller.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “AudioFile Golden Voice Grover Gardner makes the improbable terrifyingly real. As Beaumont begins to fall apart, Gardner remains coolly understated, allowing King’s artfully crafted story to unfold. First published in 1989, The Dark Half explores a writer’s relation to and responsibility for his fictional creations. Gardner’s performance is word perfect.”


  • “Scary.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A knockout thriller…brilliant, compelling…grips you by the throat.”

    Flint Journal

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Patty | 2/14/2014

    " My first experience with King was reading this book as a junior in high school. I loved it then, and have rated it based on that first reaction. Not as good as The Shining or Misery, but an interesting exploration of writerly madness. "

    " This is the second Stephen King book I read after Bag of Bones, I enjoyed it but I didn't enjoy it as much as Bag of Bones. "

    " This is his best book ever written. I loved it immensely. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Alex | 1/22/2014

    " Part of a phase Stephen King went through when he was absolutely obsessed with analyzing himself as a writer. He wrote nothing good during that phase. "
