The first half of this started out with a bang. It was a real turn pager, full of intrigue and suspense. About halfway through all the extreme, gory, "King" details began. The story was great (one of his best, in my opinion)but I get tend to get bored with pages and pages of gory, gross details. Some bits of the story reminded me of "IT".

As with nearly every one of King's books, this one grabs you quickly and doesn't let go until the last page. This book has a surprisingly profound spiritual message that I didn't expect to find in a book of this genre.

I LOVED this book. It was uniquely disturbing and brought on a whole busload of emotions through the entire book. I could not put it down!
