Read from March 20 to 27, 2011 — I own a copy

Probably the best of King's recent work, and in my opinion the best of his non Dark Tower centric books. I enjoyed everything about this book, from the characters and the locations to the lore behind the paintings and history of Duma Key. It was really nice to be in a new location for a SK book and I hope that King decides to branch out to new places in the future (or even return to Florida).

King's fluidity and wonderful descriptions were abundant in Duma Key without being too drawn out as they can sometimes be. Horror and the fantastical mix here, which gives the story a bit of a Lovecraftian feel while still remaining a book that feels oh so very Stephen King.

A must read for any Constant Reader, but even non King Fans can enjoy this, I think.
