I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but I have some intelligence. That being said I found myself wondering what the stories were about. I just didn't get it. Each one seemed to go on forever with no real begining or end. I enjoyed the last story a bit but that was it.
My opinion is simple... Steven King's well has run dry. I can not help but be bewildered by all the 5 star reviews exclaiming ?Steven King Is Back!? I just don't get it. The book feels like someone just passing the time. Page after page of babble. It ends like a cheap hollywood movie script. I love Mr. Kings work in generall, but I feel very strongly that since the Gunslingers quest came to an end, so did Mr King's greatness. Sorry brother, i still think you rock though. Actually i think you are one of the greatest writers of our time, just not latley.
As an avid King junkie I can respectfully say this book sucked. Started off in classic King storytelling and then just plain died. If you love S. King don't buy this book, it's just not happening.
