  • Disappointing

    2.5 stars. I’m a big fan of Stephen King and I’ve been reading his works since my teens. I’m now 57 years old and I still enjoy his books and I confess that my expectations were too high, especially after reading amazing reviews, such as this one by Tom Nolan on The Wall Street news: “…Its pleasures are numerous, and it touches the mind, heart and nervous system in equal measure…” Seriously? Well… I’m the outlier. How I struggled with this one. Throughout the book. This one did not work for me. Not at all. It offered me zero surprises, except that twist at the end, but by then I was more than late to throw the towel in. There is nothing extraordinary here. The writing is excellent, as expected, but the storyline was, in my opinion (gasp!), very boring. I did not get the thrill. I did find everything very predictable and the characters too hollow. I found hard to believe in the relationship between Billy and Alice. As I’m clearly in the minority, I won’t go over the details of my disappointment. For the prospective readers, I truly hope that you will enjoy this book like so many did. Happy reading!

  • Not your typical Stephen King

    This was a great book, not at all what I was expecting from Stephen King. No telepathy,no evil clown,no fire starter just a great story about great honest and real characters. I loved it .

  • Billy Summers

    This is a very well written book. It's insightful and the characters are so believable. The book made me feel happiness and sadness. I thoroughly enjoyed it. One of Mr. King's best books and I've read them all.

  • Billy Summers

    Not the horror story you expect from King but typical of his thoughtful and well-written style of writing. Enjoyed the story with well-defined characters.

    Loved it. Like all of Mr. King's books, and I have read them all, can't put it down.
