As much as it pains me to say anything unflattering about a Stephen King novel, I just didn‘t care for this one. I‘m sure it‘s me and not the author. I couldn‘t get into it. So many characters and so much weird, frantic activity. #MountTBR

SqueakyChu It‘s okay not to like everything by Stephen King. He is such a prolific author. I am a big Stephen King fan, but his work I liked the least was “the Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon”. My favorite? Probably Duma Key or Hearts In Atlantis or The Green Mile...or (well, I guess I loved lots of them!) 1y
NatalieR @SqueakyChu Thanks for the validation! 😊 I also have lots of favorite SK books too…11/22/63, Lisey‘s Story, The Shining, Bag of Bones… 1y
SqueakyChu @NatalieR Oh!! The Shining!! How I loved that book! It scared the bejeezus out me one night while I was listening to the audio version and driving home in the dark. And how I laughed at the Jack Nicholson movie version of that book! Thanks for the memory. ❤️ 1y
NatalieR @SqueakyChu 😂 That sounds like a terrifying experience! I‘m glad you enjoyed a trip down memory lane. ❤️ 1y

This is most likely my most favorite book I have read in my life so far. The story is so absolutely twisted and crazy...but you can't put the book down. It's an intense read! Totally suggest it to mystery and horror lovers!

🤠 i just finished this book which was my #20in4 Readathon goal! I read for 3 hours and 33 minutes
🌵 This is the tale of a supernatural suburban shootout. I really liked the end, but struggled to keep all the characters straight in this story. It was probably my stressful month and not the book‘s fault.

#BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #TBRDeckofCards

I'll admit, I liked Desperation just a bit more than this one, but that's not saying much since I still loved this one.

The mix of TV shows into this world where the people on Poplar St. are being hunted by an ancient evil was brilliantly done. The journal entries were probably my favorite part to the whole story because they added compassion and complexity.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2y

CaffeineAndCandy I think all of the characters from Desperation were in the Regulators , at least the characters had the same name as the characters in Desperation. Yet I couldnt find the correlation of the two stories aside from the fact that the mine and the city of Desperation were not far away from the city in which the story takes place. The characters were different ages and had different occupations from those in Desperation. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 2y
TheNeverendingTBR Definitely preferred Desperation 2y

I really enjoyed this - it wasn't an origin story - but I did get a better sense of how Tak worked and came to be a part of someone (like Seth). #LosersClub #LosersClub2021

Picked up books for other book clubs - #ThatsClassic (Jane Eyre) and #litsybookclub (The Engineers Wife)

This was really enjoyable the 2nd time around. I did go look up a couple of things in my print copy because I felt I‘d missed something while listening; my problem with audio is that my attention can wander. Frank Muller was a great narrator for this book except for pronouncing Tak as Tok. I found the ending raised a whole lot of questions though! #audiowalk #LosersClub

TheNeverendingTBR I'm glad you enjoyed it even more, I'm also looking forward to crossing another King book off my list soon! ⚡ 2y
KathyWheeler @TheNeverendingTBR I like rereading King because his work usually holds up and I notice different things. The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is the only book on this list that I haven‘t read before. (edited) 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @KathyWheeler I've not read that either, the baseball aspect of it puts me off I guess 🤷‍♂️ (I'll get to it one day though, being a completionist and all.) 😎 2y
KathyWheeler @TheNeverendingTBR I‘m so weird about baseball. I absolutely love baseball movies — I have a whole collection. Baseball itself though? Meh. I started The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, was bored, and never finished. I hope to have a different experience this time. 2y

I only have an hour and 5 minutes left in this book and seriously considered continuing to walk until I finished it, but it would‘ve been dark by then. 😊 I‘m enjoying it more this time around than I did the first time. I went into my library office before my walk and discovered a new work computer! Yay! My old one was so slow that, on booting it, I could go to Starbucks, and it might be ready by the time I got back. #Losersclub #audiowalk

KathyWheeler @TheNeverendingTBR Between now and The Green Mile, I will probably finish listening to Return to Sullivan‘s Island and possibly an Agatha Christie book. I‘m currently reading The Institute in hardback & Kristin Hannah‘s The Four Winds. 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️While I won‘t give the book five stars, I do think it‘s worth the read. Lots of action, lots of weird, and absolutely wonderful writing. I will say the narrator of the audio was phenomenal. And the covers of this one and Desperation... so cool. #losersclub #buddyread #stephenking @DGRachel

For some reason, the creepy stars align when I am reading Stephen King. See that creepy looking building in the top pic? There‘s a scene in this book where some characters are walking through the woods and something happens. As I was listening to this scene, I ran into this building. I walk there ALL the time; I have never seen this building. Tak did it! Btw, SK pronounced Tak as “tack” narrating Desperation; Frank Muller says “tock.” #audiowalk

Reagan Oh that‘s interesting! I never listened to the audiobooks but always read it as tack. 2y

This one‘s a little strange like all of King‘s books but I love the descriptions: “...to hope that maybe he wasn‘t going to do it, that he‘d had a change of heart at the penultimate moment, that last little vestibule of maybe not before the endless hallway of too late, and then...”. #losersclub #stephenking #buddyread

5 hours left in this book, and I‘m enjoying the reread. See those two skies in the picture on the top right? They were right across the street from each other at the same time. The sky in the top picture was even darker than it looks, but I felt if it started raining on the side I was walking on that I could just cross the street. #audiowalk

So I‘m over 3 hours into this book. It didn‘t start out with action like Desperation; instead, we see citizens of an Ohio suburb just going about their business on an ordinary summer day. When the action does start, though, it‘s intense. See the “No Bikes” sign in the pic below? Can you guess what I saw on that track? Yep, you‘re right — a bike. #LosersClub2021 #audiowalk

My thoughts on this one..

https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3149630747

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

bthegood still reading, but as it is a re-read I checked out your review - I actually like it more than Desperation - the setting, characters - being from small town Ohio I think I can see this so clearly in my mind. 🙂 2y
KathyWheeler I‘m still reading too. I haven‘t gotten much read as I‘ve been sick for the last three days. What I remember from reading them both when they first came out is that I liked Desperation better. I‘m interested to see if that changes. 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @bthegood Nice one, I've been to Ohio (Amherst) five times; it's a beautiful state. 🇺🇸 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @KathyWheeler Hope you feel better now? 2y

Pretty sure this is the most violent SK I‘ve ever read. So many people die, and that disturbed me enough to think this wouldn‘t make it past 3.5⭐️but in true King fashion, you end up perplexed and mesmerized by the story. Glad this was a buddy read bc the end baffled me in the best possible way. #Ohio Bachman book. On to Desperation!!

Reggie I had nightmares reading this while I was a teenager. That I was stuck on a street just like these people and there was a purple Cadillac with blacked out windows rolling down the hill and all we saw was the flash of gunshots.

This might possibly be the weirdest SK book I‘ve read so far, but I‘m still giving it a pick because I think all of his books should be read at least once. My complaints: too long (big surprise) — that‘s about it really. I love the way he writes people and he does it so well. I need a break for a few weeks before I attempt to read Desperation. 3.5⭐️ rounded up to 4.

#StephenKing

Melkyl I read them back-to-Back. I did prefer Desperation, but I read it first. It was a little strange having the same character names in the two stories in different roles. 3y
JenlovesJT47 @Melwilk I didn‘t know which one to read first! I‘m looking forward to reading Desperation soon. Ironically, it was my sister‘s hatred of this book that made me want to read it more 😆 3y
KathyWheeler I liked Desperation better too. I‘ve read most King books twice though while I‘ve only read Desperation and The Regulators once — when they were first released. It‘s probably time to revisit them. 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Great review, yes, very, very weird. I wonder if Bachman books are stranger than the regular SK books. I‘m going straight on to Desperation, not sure if that‘s the right call but I‘m afraid I‘ll forget key points if I don‘t (edited) 2y

1) Yes, esp. movie tie-in.
2) It was an ordeal. I bought a used copy online as I wanted the Mark Ryden cover art that combines with Desperation to form one picture. The description was "like new." It was a far cry from that condition, but after talking to the seller I was sent a replacement copy in better shape.
3) NPR, CNN, Daily Show, Colbert, Washington Post.
4) Wake up immediately. Usually between 7-730.
5) @readordierachel @Leftcoastzen

I read this immediately following Desperation, and they were both really good. They are classic King, in that they are creepy, gory, and just scary! Once again, I felt agitated for the characters. I think that is his gift, that he makes the reader care about the characters and then cranks up the suspense. I always feel anxious when I read his books, and I mean that in a good way. #MountTBR

There's something about summer in Maine that always leads me to reading some Stephen King.

The Regulators was a solid read. The tone of the book, the various character perspectives reminded me of The Tommyknockers (which while I enjoy does go one forever). The Regulators however, moved along at a good pace, keeping me invested and ended at a clear point.

So for #favestephenking I choose Richard Bachman ? My fave? Unsure but is the one I remember quite a bit; it terrified me and made my childhood self go "wtf is happening here?!" Turns out, besides not knowing/liking the sci-fi genre and probably not understanding autism too well, I just found out SK wrote a coordinating book- the 2 books are parallel universes and even the 1st edition covers align to make a full pic!

I refuse to buy Stephen King books because I've already given him enough money and so has everyone else, but I'll buy them too support local business! #lovemylibrary #supportyourlocallibrary #BookSale #EpicStephenKingReread #StephenKingProject

Stephen King strikes again. I hadn't read one of his books in years and he does not disappoint in this creeper.
