Not sure why other members claim this isn't hardcover, it certainly is. Perhaps the UPC codes were mixed up somehow, the book that arrived was hardcover.
On another note, this is an excellent book. My grandfather was a huge fan and collector of Stephen King books- now at the ripe age of twenty-one I am beginning to enjoy his work (both movies and books) more and more. I will admit that the books I have read have been lengthy and somewhat hard to get through, but very well worth it. A very talented man who is a huge inspiration to me. Some day I hope to write books even half as well as Mr. King does. I can't wait to collect everything I possibly can by this genius. I HIGHLY recommend this as a starter book if you are new to Stephen King, it is one of my favorites.
As posted by another member, this is not a hardcover book, but a large paperback. Excellent example of Stephen King's genius! If you have seen the movie, you should read the book - it's much better.
Intensely disturbing read
One of Stephen Kings best. All you want in a horror book, creepy, suspensful, and not for the faint of heart. This book will cause nightmares. It is a must read.
My copy of this book does not have the dust jacket.
Great book! Annie in the novel makes Annie in the movie look nice! This is from when Stephen King was still putting out original works.
like the movie so much better
One of King's best works, especially if you're into psychological horror versus the more fantastical elements of standard "horror," such as vampires, werewolves, etc.
ISBN 0-670-81364-8 *is* indeed a hardcover.
Keep me wanting to read more
This is a large paperback
I was only able to read parts of this book. I have read what I thought were some pretty violent mystery/crime novels but this one was too much for me. I read parts of the beginning,middle and end, enough to get the gist of the story but that was about all I could handle.
