Drunken Fireworks by Stephen King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is not your typical Stephen King but it is a cute story from the master storyteller. Alden and his Mama win some money in a lottery and a life insurance windfall. They spend their summers at Lake Abenaki drinkin' their days away and watching the Massimo clan across the pond. During the Independence holiday, Alden enjoys shooting off some fireworks and sparklers, which eventually lead to The Fourth of July Arms Race. Every year gets bigger and bigger until 2015 when the place is set a blazing.
This was a fun story to listen to. Tim Sample does an excellent job of narrating as Alden.
