Wow. King didn't level a forest with this one.
No story can not be told within the confines of 300 pages.
But typical King, he has no interesting story. And if there is one buried amongst all the words, it's a 10 pages story at best.

The October Boy is a pretty good idea that would have worked well with a smaller cast of characters (excising the annoying narrator, first off)and within the confins of, say, a 20 page story.
