I can see King's intent in this book. A character's merciless self analysis in the midst of a difficult situation. Unfortunately I find myself not caring about the main character at all. That said the prose and self reflection were clever enough to keep me listening for 2 for this book's 15 hours. At that point it just became tiresome.
It was surprisingly compelling for what amounts to a B monster movie in book form.
This isn't the best book you'll ever read. It's the equivalent of a good action movie with a decent action movie story; entertaining, explosive and sometimes a little moving.
