THE SCIENCE OF STEPHEN KING The Truth Behind Pennywise, Jack Torrance, Carrie, Cujo, and More Iconic Characters from the Master of Horror

by | Read by Joe Hempel, Melissa Moran, Anneliese Rennie, Tanya Eby

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Joe Hempel, Melissa Moran, Anneliese Rennie, and Tanya Eby narrate this exploration of Stephen King's work and how it relates to real-life science. Beginning in 1974 with King's first novel, CARRIE, and continuing decade by decade through his prodigious bibliography, the chapters cover well-known stories and the historical and scientific topics they touch on. The result is a hodgepodge of interesting diversions into time travel, alternate universes, vampires, pandemics, domesticated animals, reanimated corpses, fermentation, curses, and much more. The narrators effectively weave together the source material, which includes personal essays, interviews with experts, and historical quotations. Fans of Stephen King looking to revisit his work from a different perspective will certainly appreciate this audiobook. A.T.N. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
