** spoiler alert ** ***Spoilers*** It's been years since I read a Stephen King book and I couldn't put this one down. His descriptions are very good and keep you on edge. I was listening to this so I couldn't rush ahead like I would normally do if I were reading it, which is probably a good thing.

There were a few aspects of the book I didn't like that much. One was the introduction of the "other world". It takes almost half the book to be introduced to it and by that time, it seemed tangental. Another was the demise of Normie. For such a completely evil person, I expected his death to be more combative than it was.

There were a few other "nits" - Rosie jumping into a new relationship so quickly after 14 years of abuse, and her being able to be on her own after only 8 weeks of therapy being a few of them.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Stephen King again and may go back to some of his earlier works to re-read them.
