Inhaltsangabe

Stephen King's number-one national best seller about a store where Leland Gaunt can sell you whatever your heart desires - sexual pleasure, wealth, power, or even more precious things - but not without exacting some price in return.

Leland Gaunt opens a new shop in Castle Rock called Needful Things. Anyone who enters his store finds the object of his or her lifelong dreams and desires: a prized baseball card, a healing amulet. In addition to a token payment, Gaunt requests that each person perform a little "deed", usually a seemingly innocent prank played on someone else from town. These practical jokes cascade out of control, and soon the entire town is doing battle with itself. Only Sheriff Alan Pangborn suspects that Gaunt is behind the population's increasingly violent behavior.

Praised as "tremendous...wonderful...one of King's best" (Kirkus Reviews).

Brutal, yet boring

Once again, the master himself is reading to us. And he does so in the best possible way. Every character is easily decernible by the tone of voice he lends her/him. His modulation is perfect and gripping and yet - the story isn’t. It just follows a pattern that’s repeating for each and every character in the book, expectedly bringing out the worst in them, again and again. The bloody and violent end is all to inevitable. Actually it’s my first „King“ I deleted from my smartphone, an hour and a half before the end, after quite a lot of „skipping pages“.

From now on my favorite King book

I can just say, that I love this book. It's brilliantly written and then also read from the master himself. It was a delight to listen to him.
