it was ok
bookshelves: stephen-king, everyone-else-loves
Read in January, 2005

This was apparently the breakthrough book for King that began his transition from the straight horror of "Carrie" and "Salem's Lot" to stories with a bit more substance and character development. Meh. The book had its moments but overall it was definitely not my favorite King book.
