If you skip the first half it is a great book. Stephen King was always a slow starter but in this book I was not able to concentrate for long hours. The second half is King in his best.
Unfortunately, I purchased AND listened to the entire book. I really can't believe all the great reviews this received.
Half of the book was quotes from various people and personalities, a quarter was horrible cliches, and the other quarter was Wireman calling Edgar "Muchacho". I swear, that word...Muchacho...makes you want to pull your hair out when you've heard it several hundred times.
Don't waste your money or credits on this one.
Well im in the 3rd section of the down load and it's good but as of yet i havent found the horror i got from other King works.
Maybe it will all be tied up on the 6th burned disc.
Non the less a good listen, a nice way to spend time stuck in traffic.
I don't know what happened to Stephen King, perhaps a bitter divorce. But whatever it was, I hope he got it out of his system now and his next work will be worth the time it takes to get through it. This is the first of King's many novels that I have been thoroughly disappointed in.
This was pretty good until near the end. As the years have gone by I have grown to lose respect for SK, both as a writer and an individual. If you are a big fan, you'll love this book. If not, you still might like it. Personally, I'm not going to read any more of his works. That's just MHO.
