Gary Hey Kemper! I follow your reviews as we seem interested in the same books and our rating tend to match quite well. I know you are a dark tower fan and Im currently doing a re read and including the tie-in books. The Stand was excellent, IT very good apart from a few weird scenes (not really tower related but a good read) and Salens lot was also very good. I have just stared Insomnia, and what I hear daunts me. It sounds lengthy, confuluted and boring. And yet picks up the odd 5 star review. I was just wondering, as you gave it one star, is this an avoid at all costs and just read online its tower connections or should I stick with it? Thanks!

It's one of my least favorite King books although I know other King fans who like it a lot. (They are wrong.) So it's hard to tell if you'll like it or not. As you noted it does have some DT implications, but personally, I don't think it's worth wading through to get to those bits. However, like I said, I know other hard core King fans who think this one is great. My best advice is to give it a shot but if you're not liking it in the early stages, your opinion probably won't improve much.

John (Bridge Four) I'm with you. This was not the best King book.
