I haven't read King in forever, but after reading this I can't remember why. This was an excellent book that keeps you in suspense up until the end. The only thing I disliked was the suspension of disbelief required towards the end of the book. Although the size of the book looks intimidating, it was a real page turner.
Never before have I read such an accurate and chilling account of the madness that results from sleep disorder. An excellent book.
This is one of my favorite King novels. It is smart, plausible, in an odd sort of way, and terrifying. I think it is a commentary on the thought that when your time is up, there is nothing you can do. You will never look at balloon strings the same way.
I'm doing a review on this book because i saw some from other people and it reminded me that its' in my collection. for some reason this brings to mind swan's song as well. these two books are two of my favorites. This book does twist and turn and kindof like from dusk til dawn throws you into a place you don't remotely expect, more like in a direction it wasn't headed to. However it is probably my favorite king novel, this and the bachman books. I was completely absorbed in the story and loved it. i have to admit when i started the book it gave me the creeps but it isn't that type of book. it is definently worth reading, and completely. i felt very drawn to the characters and i couldn't put it down either.
