message 19: by Mehmet (new)

Mehmet | 1217 comments Hello Angie, Welcome to this Buddy read, i add your name. We start on the 15th so it gives everyone time to finish up. I myself am aiming to finish my current book by Sunday.


message 20: by Mehmet (new)

Mehmet | 1217 comments Does everyone remember or know how to do the Spoiler tags ? we must use them when talking about important plots points, so as not to ruin the story for have not reach that part of the novel.

I canceled my Waterstones special edition. Couldn’t afford it. Mine is just normal which is fine. I’m just glad it’s not beat up!

Jonathan Echevarria (gabrielzero) | 862 comments Looking forward to it. I would imagine all the various editions are the same.

Mine was a regular hardcover. I just noticed Amazon dropped the price a dollar from the pre order price and that's got me a little miffed. A whole dollar! Lol


message 24: by Mehmet (new)

Mehmet | 1217 comments I got a nice purple cover, must admit I was happy with it. Definitely going to look after it, if I like the book it be a double bonus.


message 25: by Mehmet (new)

Mehmet | 1217 comments seem to be ahead of myself, i ended up finishing my book yesterday. So started reading a short children's novel inbetween. Once I finish this I will start reading The Institute.


message 26: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Echevarria (gabrielzero) | 862 comments I listen to the first chapter. Pretty good so far. I’m curious to see how all of it unfolds. I’ve been staying spoiler free so I only know vaguely what this book is even about.


message 27: by Mehmet (new)

Mehmet | 1217 comments I am starting the book now, Sunday is almost here. Is everyone ready for some serious Stephen King funtime !


message 28: by Jonathan (new)

message 30: by Mehmet (new)

Mehmet | 1217 comments had a busy weekend, so not read as much a I would of liked. Hopefully on my day off i can concentrate and read more.


message 31: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Echevarria (gabrielzero) | 862 comments I haven’t read that much either. I think I’m only like eight chapters in. I still have 16 hours left in the book.

message 41: by Angie (new)

Angie I finished this a while back and loved it. It felt a lot more like the old Stephen King than a lot of his other recent works.

Mehmet | 1217 comments Have not read a lot of Stephen Kings books, so can not compare. I did enjoy this book a lot.
