Shawn W Mr. Splitfoot
Was thinking about giving this book a go in about a week after reading a few reviews.
Any interest?

Would like to start reading this about March 1st-March 30th...we'll keep it relaxed.

I wouldn't mind reading or listening to it. I could do closer to the end of the month?

Scott (scottyp81) | 84 comments I'll read this starting the 20th. Just finishing up Salem's Lot, so I'll be ready.

Ok, great. I'll buy it & get ready.

I'm starting tomorrow.


message 12: by Scott (new)

Scott (scottyp81) | 84 comments I'm still working on Salem's Lot, so tomorrow works. This edition of Salem's Lot is over 600 pages so I miscalculated! I thought the last 150-200 pages were the "special features" and short stories but it's the last 50 or so.

ohh! no rush Scott. I liked Salem's Lot but I LOVED the short story.


message 14: by Shawn W (new)

Shawn W Tomorrow works for me too. I have to admit it's been a while since I read Salem's lot, so I don't remember the end pages.

Latasha (latasha513) | 10683 comments Mod
I don't either but I remember I liked the short story more.

Latasha (latasha513) | 10683 comments Mod
Omg this is one fucked up story.


message 17: by Shawn W (new)

Shawn W I agree. Pretty dark start.

I'd love to see a movie adaptation but I'd want it to stick straight to the story. No wondering off!


message 19: by Scott (new)

Scott (scottyp81) | 84 comments I just finished Salem's Lot this afternoon, and started this. Love it so far, love the style of writing. Hope it keeps up!

I'm almost finished. This book wasn't exactly what I thought it would be but I like it. Those kids really have a messed up childhood and for some it doesn't get better.


message 21: by Shawn W (new)

Shawn W So far, it seems twisted and yet weirdly different.


message 22: by Latasha (new)

Latasha (latasha513) | 10683 comments Mod
I'm finished! I really liked the story. I didn't see that end coming. those kids had such a messed up childhood. and for some, those demons followed them. the story is sad, messed up and heart breaking.


message 23: by Scott (new)

Scott (scottyp81) | 84 comments I'm almost done. I've had a difficult time with it. Such mixed feelings so far. I like it, then I'm lost, then when I think I'm putting it all together I'm not.

Latasha (latasha513) | 10683 comments Mod
Aww it wraps up nicely by the end.


message 25: by Scott (new)

Scott (scottyp81) | 84 comments I just finished this. In the end, I liked this a lot. It still needs to sink in.


message 26: by Latasha (new)

Latasha (latasha513) | 10683 comments Mod
Glad you liked it Scott.


message 27: by Shawn W (new)

Shawn W Sorry guys, but listening to this book while driving back and forth to work and I'm only about halfway thru. Glad you both liked it. So far, so good.
