Alley Kat (alleykat666) | 768 comments I'm a bit low on books to read right now, so I might start a bit early. Not yet though.

Cheyenne | 2367 comments I would join in if I can get the book.


Alley Kat (alleykat666) | 768 comments Finished! It was amazing. I absolutely love King's style of writing. It adds so much more to the story without even trying.

Cheyenne | 2367 comments Okay.

Okay so I'm just over 15% in and I'm already a bit disturbed by some of the details. To be fair I have watched this in movie form a few years ago so it wasn't a surprise but still. (view spoiler)

✨Skye✨ | 3161 comments Going to start as soon as I can but I have to admit *gasp* I don't get the Stephen King hype so far after reading 3! Hopefully this one will change my mind :o

I've only ever watched one of his movies and this will be my first book by him. I find most of his books too scary. :(


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 22709 comments Mod
At 73%

So this book is one of the most difficult and effed up books I have ever read! O.o (view spoiler)

I read The Gunslinger by him, and frankly I hated it.

I also tried reading Under the Dome, but it was like 1200 pages and I stopped around page 400. I just couldn't get into it too complex.

So yeah I'm hoping this one hooks me too.

I was planning on starting this today, but I'm really banked down with university tests and assignments and I'm seriously stressing out about all of it so I'm not too sure what to do about my reading :/ Sense a breakdown coming on.

Yay hey Erin!

And thanks, my test's tomorrow so after this full day of studying I'll give myself the rest of tomorrow off to finish a book (current read) and maybe this one too. And then Saturday/Sunday I'm dedicating to my assignment.

I didn't really like it. The really sad thing is that I think of out of all of Stephen King books this one is the one I would like the most and it only got 1 star. :/

Oh man my next update is 73%?? Why didn't you update more XD

I'm 17% in and will either read more tonight after work or tomorrow, when I'll finish it. It's a strange book. Not liking it much. Too much like a documentary.

It is! I was a bit disgusted by the detail. :(

Sorry. It's a really short book and I was just trying to get through it and understand the wording. It was a bit difficult to understand at times. :(

Do you want me to go back and try to do more updates?

This is a boring book. These books I'm reading recently are majorly putting me in a physical book slump. Thank god for audio.

Yeah I started off like 'seems like I need to concentrate' XD

No it's fine about the updates haha. I'll try speed through it tomorrow morning. Got nothing planned except for finishing off an assignment (around 100 words to go).

That's what I felt when reading it. It's not very good. :(

That's the nice thing about short books. Even if they stink you can finish them quickly. :)

I kind of went into autopilot when reading this. It's why it was a fast read. I don't actually remember much about this book. :/

XD I'm trying to focus on it. I'll play some Candy Crush now and listen to more audio, and then I'll ask around for sprinters haha.
