Is it just me or is this one missing the most obvious release date tie in ever?

Luke A. Bunker It is not just you!!!

Ashley I thought that same thing when I saw the title of the book.

JD huh?

Meaning, why didn't King release the book on 11/22 instead of 11/8.

Katie I thought the same thing. They would have been even smarter to release it on the date.

message 6: by Bob (new) - rated it 5 stars

Bob Or they could have released it in the day he went down the rabbit hole

Todd Morgan Halloween?

Jeannie All books are released on Tuesdays.

Ryan 11/8 was a Tuesday... and 11/22 (14 days later) was as well. ;)

Daniel Harbin That seems like a kitschy and overt publicity stunt. Don't think that's King's style.

buppyspek Should have held out for 11/22/13. ;)

Vivienne I agree I don't think King would do something like this.

Brandon nah, maybe king should of held it out for 50 more years... then it would have been PERFECT

Kumari Don't think King's powerful enough to influence that sort of thing. He's not in charge of the money machine. He's just the author.

Michael Myett Oh, I think King has enough say so to influence pretty much what he wants. You only kow tow to other people when you need the money and he doesn't. The answer is simple, it is so obvious that it would be absurd. Thing like this are only interesting if they are clever and a little tricky to figure out. That premise is just to simplistic.

Michael Myett I thought being in a position so close to the 11/22/63 date and not waiting was much more interesting than the obvious cliche'.
