I thought for a Stephen King book, this one was a bit sappy. A coming to adulthood book, lost loves, a crippled boy etc. It really never got exciting. I was pretty much bored. I really wish King would go back to his later writings. More thrill and gore that catches you at the begining and never lets you go until the very end.
Its a good book, and interesting, but lacks the real gripping narative I've come to expect from Stephen King. The elements of the mystery at the heart of the story seemed undeveloped, I found myself being uninterested in learning who the real killer was and felt the ending was rather rushed.
I guess I'm a baby...I just love to be read to.
By the time I found out who the bad guy was I didn't even care nor was it surprising even though I didn't suspect him. It wasn't scary or thrilling or suspenseful...just blah. I wouldn't waste time on this one...it is seriously lacking.
I really enjoyed listening to this, I found I couldn't wait to get in the car so I could listen some more.
Annie, she is awesome
Good back story with a twist. Great climax, sorrowful ending. Like many of his stories, you hope it turns out better, but it almost never does!
I've known this for quite awhile, but still, it always impresses me when i read his stuff - the guy is flat-out good. Horror stories, or like this, otherwise. This book was engaging and interesting, and plain fun. There were a few plot devices i felt were a bit weak, but in general, i really enjoyed this book and was sorry when it ended. Definitely recommended.
There's a lot of back and forth in the timeline. It's really enjoyable to me. I love the differentiation in voices of characters. As always with King it's nice and spooky, but just not the level of fiction I was looking for. Still am A+ plus. Will tug at your heart strings.
