“Elevation is the brand new novella from master storyteller Stephen King. The author reads this audiobook, and the purchase of this audiobook includes the short story Laurie, which is unavailable in book form. Elevation tells the story of Scott Carey and his neighbors in Castle Rock. Scott catches his neighbors' dogs doing their business on his yard, and he confronts them. The dogs' owners are a lesbian couple, and the three get off to a rough start. As the story develops, the three bond, and the listener is left with a story that is uplifting, a tale of friendship and acceptance. Not what you may expect from Stephen King, but he isn't just a horror author. Highly recommended.”John, Main Point Books
