The Tommyknockers starts out in the usual Maine setting for King, but takes a detour in the usual plot development. I found that the story picked up relatively quickly and the characters were introduced in a quick fashion, but one that was good enough for you to get a mental image of them. The plot builds throughout the book by leaps and bounds, offering up many theories as to what was actually going on in the little town. The only complaint I had is that if felt as if the climax were missing something. The whole story was building up to something so large and intense that it felt as though the climax was kind of a let down. Maybe that's just how I perceived it at the time, but I was expecting much more at the end. That's not to say it wasn't a good read, but just a sort sputtered at the end.
