"The small men and women with the upslanted eyes looked at his caked forehead and bloody jacket sleeve with unsettling Oriental blandness." Excuse me, this book was written when, again? O.o

I have never read the work of an author as obsessed with semen as Stephen King. SEMEN ALL THE THINGS!

"The woman had a good set of hips on her, there would be a fine porch door down there between them. She could have just about as many little ones as she wanted." Dear Stephen King, please stop trying to write from the point of view of an elderly black woman. Nobody's buying what you're selling.

"When the evening was spread out against the sky like a patient etherized upon a table, two thousand students ..." Ummmm I do not understand your need to quote Prufrock here, Mr. King?

"Under the California desert and subsidized by the taxpayers' money, someone had finally invented a chain letter that really worked. A very lethal chain letter." Somebody, hold me.

I think it's a third person limited with shifting POV, but it hadn't been well enough established yet for me not to tilt my head to match, you know, my slanty eyes.
