Hearts in Atlantis Audiobook Free
Hearts in Atlantis Audiobook is a collection of two novellas and three short stories by Stephen King, all connected to one another by recurring characters and taking place in roughly chronological order.
Five interconnected, sequential narratives, set in the years from 1960 to 1999. Each story is deeply rooted in the sixties, and each is haunted by the Vietnam War.
In Part One, “Low Men in Yellow Coats”, 11-year-old Bobby Garfield discovers a world of predatory malice in his own neighborhood. He also discovers that adults are sometimes not rescuers, but at the heart of the terror.
In the title story, a group of college students get hooked on a card game, discover the possibility of protest… and confront their own collective heart of darkness, where laughter may be no more than the thinly disguised cry of the beast.
In “Blind Willie” and “Why We’re in Vietnam”, two men who grew up with Bobby in suburban Connecticut try to fill the emptiness of the post-Vietnam era in an America which sometimes seems as hollow – and as haunted – as their own lives.
And in “Heavenly Shades of Night Are Falling”, this remarkable book’s denouement, Bobby returns to his hometown where one final secret, the hope of redemption, and his heart’s desire may await him.
Full of danger and suspense, most of all full of heart, Hearts in Atlantis will take some listeners to a place they have never been, and others to a place they have never been able to completely leave.
This is nowhere near being one of Kings scariest books, but it may possibly be one of the deepest novels he has written.
Interestingly enough, I started out in the first story being entertained in the fantasy of a tale that not only took me back to a time of my childhood but was also connected to King’s Dark Tower series, a series I consider a masterpiece. So yeah, I was having a good time… but by the time I reached the fifth and last story of the book I was angry; angry at war, angry at the man, angry at the government, angry at the system, angry at the atrocities of life and angry at the cruelty of my fellow human beings.
Being a child of the 60’s, having grown up in the Vietnam era, Hearts in Atlantis Audiobook Mp3 really hit home for me. But it wasn’t just because of the war itself. This was a look into the hearts of man (and woman).
