This is a big book that reads fast. Having dabbled in sketching and painting I was fascinated with the power of the muse in this book. Of course with Steven King it starts out amusing and then becomes exponentially terrifying. The author as always is a master about character sketches. I never have trouble visualizing his characters or the scenery. I love the new local, I have always liked the Gulf Coast of Florida and glad to see it through his eyes. He does it so effortlessly compared to the sluggish discriptions other authors pull us through. As always I enjoy the first 3/4ths of the book more than the climactic horrifying parts at the end. This one ranks higher than Cell, not as high as Delores Claiborne, or The Stand. Thats a pretty good review from me.
