By far, the worst of King's books. This is one of those rare books that I hated so much I really considered just not finishing. I muddled through though in hopes that the ending might be worth the misery of reading it, but alas, it never did get any better. The attempt to make this a compelling, psychological thriller really feel short, I did not find it at all frightening (other than just the idea that this could conceivably happen to someone). Compared to something like "Cujo", this book was just was more annoying than nail-biting and scary. King uses a sort of "stream-of-consciousness" to take us in the protagonist's rambling thoughts and it just did not work for me.
