Book Description

May 1 1991 Penguin audiobooks (Book 3)
This is the third gripping tale in the four-part audio series from Stephen King’s best-selling book Four Past Midnight.

Set in Junction City, Iowa, The Library Policeman is the story of Sam Peebles, a middle-aged businessman who happens to have some overdue books. It seems a minor offense—but not to Junction City’s malevolent monster of a librarian. What follows is spine-tingling suspense as only Stephen King can deliver it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephen King has done it again. May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
"The Library Policeman" is a thrilling story of a man and his bad trip to the library, and of what is to come. The book has great detail and well developed characters. The horror of such things could only come from a great writer like Stephen King. The book is fast reading and makes you grip the pages with suspense. Ardelia is a a monster from my deepest nightmares. I love how King incorporates children into the story, and makes them the victims giving it a more horrific feeling of what Ardelia is doing. The whole story sent chill's down my back. The library in the story, is so twisted and scary that I love it. The story shows a great case of coping with your fears in order to over come a bigger picture. If you like creatures that you have never imagined like the Library Policeman, then i suggest trying " The Langoliers", also by Stephen Kind. I enjoyed "The Library Policeman" a great deal and woudl read it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST SK NOVELLAS March 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This novella was somewhat disturbing and weird. A Library Policeman!?! What the heck! When I started the book(novella), I almost laughed my head off. I must admit it was boring till about page 80 or 90. As the story went on though it turned creepier and more disturbing by the page. Once I got to the chapter called Dave's Story I was fully engaged in the story and couldn't quit it. I finished this novella in one day. Ardella or whatever the name is(couldn't remember the name even when I finished), is so creepy when Dave tells his story. King did a great job of connecting us to the character in only 200 pages or so. This is a great imaginative piece of work by Stephen King and he scores a grand slam again!

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm a policeman... Sept. 18 2002
Format:Audio CD
This audio version of Three past midnight will capture your attention especially if you listen to it in the dark. the reader does an excellent job giving each character a distinct voice. spooky music punctuates the suspense of the book giving it a chilling feeling which pulls the lisener in. Still, like most Sk books the begining was better then the ending. I found the way the hero fought off the entity a bit over the top and really didn't make that much sensse. Yes Sam faced his fear but King built up the evil being so much that one would think it took more then childhood fears to kill it off. Overall though a pretty good listen. This book contains 6 cassettes and is narrated by a single reader.
