Tim Byrd's review
May 16, 2009
Far from King's best. It was an engaging enough story, with some creative (if cartoonish) elements, but if ever there was a book crying out for the Reader's Digest Condensed Book treatment (which is something I generally despise), it was this one. Nearly 800 pages used to tell a story that really should have been told in 300-400 at most. Way too much incidental detail, too much authorial wool-gathering.
