really liked it

Really enjoyed the 'fullness' of this book.

Quick thoughts:

1) Not terribly frightening. Creepy though.
2) The family unit. I was in awe, despite the baggage and past mistakes these characters had, their was a lot of effort and love in this family.
3) Writing style is amazing. Loved the narration of the story.
4) Loved the characters. Well developed with backstory, and how they've changed throughout the book.
5) REDRUM. That was a jaw-dropper :D

Going to watch the movie soon, and full review up tonight! I have a feeling the movie is going to be VERY different.

Allison This is one of my favorite stephen king books (it's definitely up there along with Misery and Needful Things). I need to get back into reading his books again; I got some for christmas and boy, do I really miss them... Uh, I love his books! :)
