did not like it
Recommended for: masochists. They'd like it for two reasons.
Read in October, 2007

Wow. This book really isn't so bad right up until the very end. It has the usual stuff Stephen King does well: trapped stream-of-consciousness, suspenseful descriptions of minute actions, tense and terrifying situations. Maybe its overly dark, has indistinct characters, and occasional moments of borderline misogyny, but it isn't so very bad. But, alas! The end manages to go so over-the-top in all those directions, and be so dumb, that it completely undercuts everything that came before.

Peg Seay It's funny how different people see books in so many different ways. The ending was took it from a 2 or 3 star review to a 4-5 star book for me!
