For readers, one of life’s most electrifying discoveries is that they are readers—not just capable of doing it (which Morris already knew), but in love with it. Hopelessly. Head over heels. The first book that does that is never forgotten, and each page seems to bring a fresh revelation, one that burns and exalts: Yes! That’s how it is! Yes! I saw that, too! And, of course, That’s what I think! That’s what I FEEL!Count me among those who think that Finders Keepers may have started as a stand alone book, and that Bill Hodges was added somewhere midway through the process (and literally a third of the way through the story) to make the Bill Hodges story a trilogy.
A good novelist does not lead his characters, he follows them. A good novelist does not create events, he watches them happen and then writes down what he sees. A good novelist realizes he is a secretary, not God.
But, where is Brady Hartsfield, the perpetrator of the City Center massacre that started this whole nightmare??? Remember what happened to him at the conclusion of Book #1?
While I enjoyed this suspenseful crime-murder mystery more than MM, there are some rather slow parts about mid-way, but the "Oh No!" moments are there too with, of course, a few tie-ins to other King books as is the norm. As for Book #3, for me, it has already taken a big spine-chilling step toward the dark and creepy side. Can't Wait!
