I got this when it first came out and thought it was great. King should do another set of stories on smokers or non-smokers or sort-of-smokers, whatever that group is!
I found it entertaining which is why I ordered it. It was good but I wouldn't say great. Another chapter in an overall wonderful story.
It was a good story with lots of potential but I thought to be a little "thin." There needed to be more description, more character development. But maybe this was written for a teen audience and too much information is boring.
An enjoyable SK novel I thought. A little weirdness, a little horror, and located in the keys.
Not as "heavy" a novel as his in the past or maybe I'm just getting older.
A nice listen.
Unabidged Dune is always a good listen but i liked George Guidall as the reader-version better. He has very good character inflection as a reader.
A long story certainly but well worth the listen. I first saw the movie in the 1980's which certainly would have ruined it for me if I'd read the book first but as it was made the book much better.
A nice straight forward drama, not the usual King build up or draw out. If I didn't know it was a King story to begin with I might think it belonged to someone else.
I have to wonder if he didn't just spend a length of time in the Florida keys since this is the second book that takes place there.
Well worth the read.
I liked it up to the ending. The character seemed more like the Heston version than the Smith version. The story was a little different than the two movie versions which was nice since I've seen them.
Well worth the listen!
