Editor's Note

Frightening afternoon…

Like many of Stephen King’s other beloved classics, “Later” blends true-to-life coming-of-age elements with unforgettable thrills and chills. Jamie Conklin might seem like an ordinary boy, except for the fact that, for better or worse, he can communicate with the recently deceased. The one thing that’s not frightening about “Later” is its length: you can read it in an afternoon (followed by a sleepless night).

Description

A BRAND-NEW NOVEL FROM LEGENDARY STORYTELLER STEPHEN KING!

SOMETIMES GROWING UP MEANS FACING YOUR DEMONS

The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine-as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.

Later is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King's classic novel, It, Later is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.

    If King didn't write this it might not have been published. 6th sense ripoff that doesn't progress, and as is often typical of King, a meh ending. Narrator of audiobook does a great job.
  • (3/5)
    Not Stephen King’s best work. Narrator does get better as the book progresses, but very far fetched story and ends with a feeling of not really sure what exactly I read when I finished.
  • (4/5)
    Loved the narrator and what he brought to the story. Loved everything about this book except the ending. Characters were awesome and the communication so realistic. This was a bit vanilla for King but that didn't bother me because it was so well written. But the ending left me with a bit of dissatisfaction. It felt finalized instead of brought to an ending. It is certainly worth the listen to for the storyline and the narration. I would recommend it unless your looking for gorey/horror then don't bother. Sorry.
