    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Thank you Stephen King for voicing a true "middle of the road" approach to the gun control argument. Too many people are willing to take an either/or approach, when simple common sense could prevail. I too have one foot (partially) placed in the Red where I was raised, and the other planted in the Blue. I think I shall remain Purple from now on.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    I've been a fan since Carrie was released, and this book illustrates King's ability to terrify better than any other. Over the years I've reread this book when I'm craving a good scare, great characters, and fluid prose. Listening to it brings a whole new experience. Definitely credit worthy.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    Amazon Customer says: "Play the Book and Let the Book Play You"
    "Vintage Stephen King"
    Overall

    I have patiently waited for Mr. King to blow me away with another story of an 'Everyman' in extraordinary circumstances. Duma Key is it!
