"Brilliant, fresh, and compelling...will leave you panting for more." (Booklist)
"An impressive work of mythic magnitude. May turn out to be Stephen King's greatest literary achievement." (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
I just don't get it. It seems unecesarily convoluted. Just not enough draw in this first book to make me endure more. Too many better stories out there.
This was a very entertaining book that was full of science. For anyone who has visited Pompeii or has seen pictures of the petrified bodies in National Geographic this is the book for you. I've always tried to imagine who these people were, they had lives, jobs, interests. This book brought them to life. For those of us who live in the shadow of a volcano this could be our future. I highly recommend it.
Boring is the only word I have for this book. The only reason I gave it two stars is because it does have a plot. Perhaps reading it in print would have been less confusing, but the characters are dry and the story is tired.
I did manage to finish this book but I dont know why. I never got anything out of the story, it was horribly slow and overall I had an extreme dislike for it. I have no idea why anyone would like it.
I am a fan of other Steven King books but not this series.
It is apparent the author was trying desperately to show imagination. He only succeeds in churning out inane, rude, intensely disgusting images in a meaningless ambiance. Avoid reading this book at all costs!
