Granted, I am a puffickly huh-yooge S. King fan, but not everything he writes is genius. This one is excellent, bordering on extraordinary. One of the finest things he's written in years. A sad, scary, energizing, touching, mystifying journey through ...more

Not my thang. I hate the Middle Ages. I wouldn’t have fared well in Medieval Europe. The book is about building a cathedral. Yep, it’s as boring as it sounds. The characters are all either SO GOOD or SO EVIL that none are likeable or believable. It’s ...more

The best writing lesson I’ve ever received, and the best inspiration. First tier King all the way. You can’t make a bad writer competent, because they won’t listen. You can’t make a good writer great, because greatness had to be there to begin with. ...more

Mild-mannered shnook learns his recently-deceased father was a spider god, and rediscovers both his long-lost lovable-shyster brother in the process. I’m not a comic fan, so I don’t have much Gaiman experience, but right on! Amazing not only for its ...more
