This was the first Stephen King book I have ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. At parts I thought he was over explaining the story, but all in all it was a great story and a great book!
I will definitely be reading more King.
I had this on my reminder list for a while, a little wary of reading horror. This book was ok, a lot of characters to remember that weren't really necessary. There were a lot of questions not answered at the end and some of the dreams and other scenes were so confusing and unnecessary.
This is a great book! It is one of my all time favorites and one of King's best. The story and the characters are interesting on their own but when you throw in a little of the supernatural it takes it to a whole new level. If you are looking for a good read, this is it!
