Hearing the late Frank Muller narrate Stephen King's thriller is like a welcome visit from an old friend. Muller, who died in 2008, left behind a tremendous legacy of work, including a series of recordings of King books recently re-released. The story of a disturbed boy who becomes entwined in the life of an unrepentant former Nazi is one of King's most frightening works, even without vampires or things that go bump in the night. The novella is far superior to the movie of the same name. King, with more than a little help from Muller, explores the internal workings of the boy and his mentor in ways the movie could not. Bravo.
