    Tananarive Due, author of The Living Blood won the American Book Award and is praised as Stephen King's equal by Publishers Weekly. In The Good House, Due sets a story of ancient powers and modern retribution in a small Pacific Northwest town. When a young woman returns to her grandmother's empty mansion, she is pitted against demonic forces that have poisoned her family for generations.

    Overall

    Here and there a little bit hard to follow because of the constant jumping around on the timeline, but as a whole this is a great book. As an ardent Stephen King fan I have to declare her a worthy disciple of King?s style (not yet his equal, but if the critics are right, we will be in for a treat). I can?t wait for her next book.

    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    "Who wrote this? Stephen King and/or ???"
    Overall

    It is not my object to dissuade Black Tower fans from this book. For when 1 thru 6 are read, nothing could stop one from getting 7. I only wish to convey a feeling that kept creeping up while listening to George Guidall's excellent narration: Who wrote this???
    Chapters of ''edge of the seat'' spellbinding masterful Stephen King, followed by endless descriptions that read with the exhilaration of a grocery list, interspersed with gratuitous stomach churning vulgarity.
    Half of this book feels like King, the rest is filler material, extra words to fluff it up and make it thicker. Fast forward thru those scenes and you end up with King at his best.
