This book is a pleasant surprise from Stephen King. Does Stephen King Books need an introduction ? I don't think so. It is mesmerising . And more for the incredible character of Lisey Debusher Landon than the horrific spells King usually casts on his readers.

PROS

1. King throws everything into this one : drama ., adventure , fantasy, horror, comedy, suspenseand even a tear here and there,

2. Some might say this is King's most personal work ever- It's a love memento from a master of horror.

3. King's realization of the love between Lisey's family of four sisters in as wonderfully realized as his horrific display of a father and two sons whose souls were possessed by horrific evils.

CONS

1.This book is all over the place , even though King tosses the idea off in the author's note, more editing could have raised the level of his writing here,

2. Despite King's horror/ fantasy leanings ( and I 'm sure he felt it necessary to incude them in the tale ) , the novel works best when it's not focussed on the fantasy world of Boo'ya Moon/

3. The book is too heavy . So don't try reading it in 1 or 2 days .

THIS IS A MUST READ LOVE MEMENTO FROM THE MASTER OF HORROR.
