    Liked not loved.

    A good read but it seemed more like a Grimm fairy tale for young adults. I liked it though as it was a quick read for me.

    The GIRL WHO LOVED TOM GORDON

    The description of the surrounding the terrain and individuals she was seeing in her mind were excellent however a whole book about a lost girl was just too long for me,

    A Wonderful Novel

    This may be my favorite Stephen King novel—which is a little strange because it is far from a typical King book. There is not necessarily anything supernatural in this novel (although you can pretend there is if you want to). Instead it is about the totally real world terror of being lost in the deep woods. King brings all of his formidable talent to bear on the task of describing a nine year old girl’s experience when she gets separated from her mother and brother while hiking in the woods. Bugs, wildlife, hunger, thirst, exposure, and illness are described in graphic and believable detail making the girl’s experience ever more hopeless and horrifying. Yet, there is also the touching strength she draws from her baseball idol, Tom Gordon, as she imagines, and later hallucinates, that he is walking beside her as she struggles to find civilization again. Her hallucinations slip increasingly into the supernatural as she begins to personify the forest and what it is to be lost in it in a gripping and suspenseful account as her strength fails and her hopes of rescue continually diminish. I first read this story back in 1999 or 2000, and have just completed listening to it in audio with a truly brilliant narration by Anne Heche. It’s nice to discover that a book you really liked is even better than you remembered.
