This is a great book.It puts you to think and it makes you ask yourself the question,could this be real?It is simply about a writer having a pen name which he writes under,but shortly after announcing the "death"of his pen name Killing starts to happen.The story is great there is a lot to it like for example when the writer(Tad Beaumont)was small he had surgery and this surgery proved that he had a twin brother!This fact however has a little or alot to do with the story,it depends on how you look at it or read it as the case may be...But the important thing to this is get started with this book because it is really good.The beginning might be a little slow but it is worth the read.I read this book over a year ago and it is still in mine mind,it is so tempting to write a review about it and share its greatness with other readers,sadly I cant remember all the details about the book,but I do know it is good and I would definitely recommend it for new and old readers alike...Enjoy.

KING brings split personality to a new high on both mental and physical levels. The plot is entertaining and a real mind bender...

King takes the classic "evil twin" story to a whole new level in this book. It's hefty, but a fast read -- I found myself carrying it everywhere so I could read it in restaurants, check out lines, etc. It's more of a thriller than a straight horror novel, though there are some pretty gross descriptions. Overall, The Dark Half is a great, addictive read.

This is one of my all time favorite Stephen King books. I have read it countless numbers of times. I'll probably keep pulling it out from time to time to read it again!

Readers will find themselves immersed in a story filled with suspense, delving into the world of the supernatural. Fans of King's work will not be disappointed and will smile wryly as they think of his series of Bachman books . . . . Many consider Stephen King a master of horror. Perhaps the most frightening thing we find when we explore his writing is the dark possibilities that lie within the workings of the human psyche. Sooner or later, we each have to come to grips with our own dark half.
