This story was powerful and hit close to home as an educator. I see this drama all the time and it makes me so mad that kids continue to do hateful things to each other. If young ladies read this perhaps they will have a little empathy for their fellow humans instead of becoming a husk of a corpse that walks and talks with little to no emotional connection.
Joe Hill is following in his father's footsteps while making his own. This book scared the crap out of me! I loved every minute of it and wished it went on forever.
This book ended too abruptly for me. I needed a couple more chapters. Boo.
Stephen King can write! He pleased me from the beginning to the end of this book. I truly enjoy his storytelling and this narrator was top notch. I agree that you need to read "The Shining" before reading this because it helps make sense of many past issues these characters faced. Don't watch to movie because it does not follow the book. I read "The Shining" prior to this in order to refresh my memory and it made this read so much better. Thanks Stephen!
Hand down this is the best book of the year for me! What a story! This is going to make an AMAZING movie and I really hope someone good does it! Anyone who grew up during the 1980s would totally get this book and I believe enjoy it! I am envious of anyone reading this for the first time.
What an amazing read! This was one of THE best books I have ever read! The story is very unique and interesting and the message is really great. I have downloaded the sequel and am looking forward to reading it soon.
