I used to be a huge Stephen King fan -- I loved most of his early work including 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, Carrie, Cujo, Firestarter, The Dead Zone, The Stand, and on and on. However, I just could not get into this novel. I tortured myself by reading the first 150 pages before I decided to give it up! I really got frustrated with the made-up language King kept using like "bool," "blood-bool', "bad-gunky", SOWISA, and "strap it on" to name a few. This one pretty much made me give up on King!

I found this book hard to get into at first, had to push myself to stay with it, but I'm glad I did in the end - it's a haunting love story. I read it at night and have to admit it kept me awake long after I had finished it, thinking about the long boy with the endless piebald side.

I loved this book!! King wrote a good love story, was a little slow in beginning, developed the story a little too much in some areas but then drew me in. Would recommend!

This has to be one of my least favorite books of King's. I did not like the main character at all. She got on my nerves quite a bit throughout the book. I flogged through to the end but the book never quite grabbed my attention.

I have read everything ever written by Stephen King... but I just couldn't finish this book. I forced myself to get to page 346, but I still wasn't into it. I read the reviews on here and it seems that a lot of people really liked it... I guess this just wasn't my style.

I'm usually a King fan, but this fell short of the mark. The oddness factor was simply for the point of being odd, it seemed. Seemed to just be rambling.

This book is difficult to get started, but I think it stems from the fact that the content is so very different than what any of us are used to. I would reccomend that you just keep will be glad you did. Great Read!

This book took me a little getting into. I thought that it started out slow, however after putting it down for a few weeks and trying again later, it turned out to be pretty good. I am deffinately glad that I gave it a shot even though it started out slow.
