A reviewer stated that the story went slow. What I say is that the Buick 8 was stored for at least 2 decades and things happened over that period. I liked the book. What I didn't like was what happened to the barracks dog. Then again I am a dog lover. I occasionally read his books. I didn't know what to expect with this book, but I read it during the day, just in case it got really bad. lol How come things look better during the day but it doesn't at night???
This definitely was not one of my favorite King books. The first few hundred pages of this book were definitely not page turners but the last were. The story of the Buick unravels by going between the past and present where I feel the entire book should have been written as a flashback. The length and the drawing out of the story almost made this book unfinishable.
This was one of those books that started out kinda slow, but once it got going, it was very good. It took me a while to finish it, though, because it just didn't have enough of that King feel to it. A bit alien, a bit supernatural, a bit creepy. Buick Roadmaster sitting in state police barracks shed becomes a portal to another world...? dimension...? Interesting plot, definitely different. Just a bit slow in spots.
