This was the third time I’ve listened to this audiobook and I enjoyed it more this time. I decided to re-listen to it because of a new television series that began a month or so ago on SyFy called Haven. It’s said to be based on this particular book and I’m sorry I just don’t see it. Yes, there are two old weathered looking newspaper men and there is an old unsolved mystery but that’s where it ends. I like the book more but I do watch the tv series every Friday night because I love a good spooky mystery.
If you like Stephen King and haven’t read The Colorado Kid give it a try. You won’t be sorry.
