Roadwork Audiobook Free (read by G. Valmont Thomas)
Roadwork Audiobook is a novel by American writer Stephen King, published in 1981 under the pseudonym Richard Bachman. Only Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, can imagine the horror of a good and angry man who fights back against bureaucracy when it threatens to destroy his vitality, home, and memories.
This story was collected in 1985 in the hardcover omnibus The Bachman Audiobooks. Three of the four novels in that collection – Roadwork Audiobook, The Long Walk Audiobook, and The Running Man Audiobook – have since been reprinted as standalone titles.
The story takes place in an unnamed Midwestern city in 1973–1974. Grieving over the death of his son and the disintegration of his marriage, Barton Dawes is driven to mental instability when he learns that both his home and his workplace will be demolished to make way for an extension to an interstate highway.
Barton Dawes’ unremarkable but comfortable existence suddenly takes a turn for the worst. A new highway extension is being built right over the laundry plant where he works – and right over his home.
Dawes isn’t the sort of man who will take an insult of this magnitude lying down. His steadfast determination to fight the inevitable course of progress drives his wife and friends away while he tries to face down the uncaring bureaucracy that has destroyed his life.
Stephen King considered “Roadwork Audiobook Mp3” is one of his not so good novels. I want to disagree with his majesty. Lots of listeners thought that it would have been a fine short story, but it failed as a novel. I object to that. For me, “it” and “the stand” would be better if they were “less”, but “roadwork” is exactly the right size. Because it is real life.
In more than 9 hours, this audio holds the full extension of human vulnerability and despair, in front of painful fate, grievous blows of life and the system’s cruelty. For me, a masterpiece!
