This book typifies the essential Stephen King. Very much like 'The Secret Window', this story has many things that surprise you. As always, Mr. King has done it once again. Thanks for the good read, Mr. King!
Really good read. I could tell it was his first novel since I have read so many of the others. But as always, Dick Francis creates great interest in steeplechasing and just the entire British thing as well. Everyone who likes a good mystery should try this one out. It is now part of my collection and I am sure I will read it again someday!
What a wonderful hook to get you engrossed in the trilogy! I truly enjoyed this book of Chalker's as I did enjoy the series. A very plausible story line with some really fun characters make this one a must read for anyone who enjoys Chalker or any sci-fi or sci-fantasy book.
Good book, but it is sort of hard to read about some of your favorite authors and their dirty linen, so to speak. Too bad they never patched up their differences and produced this play. It would have been well received even back in the 30's!
