it was ok
Recommended to Kirby by: No one. I reviewed it.
Recommended for: Stephen King fans
Read in January, 2008

The author has quite a good plot where a social worker being chased by a mother who wants her child back finds himself drowning in his car after it crashes. He dies and is revived only to find himself in another nightmare. The people around him are being killed off one by one and he is suspected of the murders.

This was a great plot and he is a good writer, but he added some strange things to the plot like the talking dead dog, and his dead parents giving advice in the oddest places. I could even believe this...that he had gone insane. I was not happy when another character also did things because he was also "hearing voices" like our social worker.

The who_know_it part is fascinating and this book will be enjoyed by people who love Stephen King...but Stephen King is scary because the situations he writes about are believable. I am not a fan of the incredible and if he had just left out the one character was hearing things I would have gotten into this novel totally.
