it was ok
bookshelves: horror, sci-fi

The story itself isn't bad, I wanted to keep reading. But, boy, does it need a lot of editing! There is so much fluff in there that the whole story could have easily been 250 pages--and punchier, grittier! So, in the end, pick up another Stephen King novel if you must.

Aya Bara Ha ha, so it's funny, because not too long ago I watched a video with George R. R. Martin and Stephen King in which SK said that he could have probably made The Tommyknockers about a third of its length. So you're right on the nose. :P
