I gave up on King a long time ago but once in a while I'll try one by him---wrong!--I knew within a few pages it was going to be one of those long drawn out description filled pages of nothing--don't know why anyone would consider his writing good anymore.

I'm a King near-completist, and I guess I could give this three stars because King is always readable, but honestly, this was mostly mildly interesting until the ending when this book goes COMPLETELY OFF THE RAILS. I JUST FINISHED IT AND CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE THE ENDING. I don't want to spoil it but like, how. Why. This weird mashup of Frankenstein story and examination of organized religion is just a complete mystery to me. If you feel obliged to read this novel, you'll get through it, but the payoff is so weird and I didn't find either of the main characters engaging enough to really get invested.

Uh, what can I say...not a stinker of a book but not very good either. Starts out very interesting building the characters and then turns into a , "so when is the horror going to start? When is the Stephen King wierdness going to start" and it never does. Its a good story that ends with a..."SPOILER" yawn. Go read Dr. Sleep, now that was a good book!
