Insomnia
Insomnia | Stephen King
Youll lose a lot of sleep.Ralph does. At first he starts waking up earlier. And earlier. Then the hallucinations start the colours, shapes and strange auras. Not to mention the bald doctors who always turn up at the scene of a death.Thats when Ralph begins to lose a lot more than sleep. When he begins to understand why his hitherto mild-mannered friend, Ed, is getting out of control dangerously so. And why his home town is about to become the new Armageddon...Insomnia is a relentless waking nightmare in which the master of horror and suspense guarantees you sure wont rest in peace.

Took me some time to finish, it was a #chunkster... not that I‘d expect much else from King. It started with a bang, and had lots of great connections to his other works, It and The Dark Tower series in particular, but it did feel like it dragged a little. Not that that deterred my crying towards the end (even knowing what was coming)... As I‘m late to the Stephen King game, it‘s shocked me how many of his 📚 have had me blubbering 😭

Overall I really enjoyed this book.
There were a couple of points towards the end that were a bit silly and I felt took away from the story, and the epilogue, although it did tie up some loose ends, wasn't completely necessary. But, that's got to be hard to avoid when you've written over 700 pages already!

With exams and papers I‘ve fallen behind on my countdown, but my commute still let me finally finish insomnia! Such a good book, the imagery it well written and unique. I did not know what I was getting myself into when I started this book but I am far from disappointed. So glad I got that recommendation! 🙌

It's almost 4am, and I have yet to fall asleep. So I open my book (not the tagged one actually, it's Dead Until Dark), and the first thing I see is "better go to sleep now." Oh if only it were that easy, Charlaine Harris. ??

RadicalReader @Traci1 gotta love when lines in books relate so strongly to situations 1y

I love all the crossovers with other books in this. It feels like being in a secret club. I'm sure I've missed quite a few as welk. About halfway in to this beast. Thought it was going to take ages, but once you get going on a King, they fly along.

TrishB Loved this one 👍🏻 2y
VioletBramble So many people dislike this book and say it's among the worst King books. I really liked it. Maybe because I suffer from insomnia and believe in auras--(I can't see them but I believe in them.) 2y

I is for Insomnia....my most favorite SK audio book read by Eli Wallach. I remember working about 1/2 hour away from my home. I bit the bullet and started to listen to audiobooks to help with the ride. This is the book that got me hooked. This was so incredibly read by Wallach.

I is for Insomnia. Which takes place in Derry, same as It (another obvious "I" title). This is one that flew under my radar and I just recently picked a copy up. It's also another Dark Tower tie-in novel so it'll be added to my Tower pile to read. What are your thoughts ? on this one? Quote ?

rohit-sawant Great pick! This was one of the first SK books I read, & I've been meaning to revisit it, along with so many other early reads. A lot of the references slipped by me then & it wasn't until later that things clicked. 2y
GarthRanzz @AmyG I was surprised by how man of us picked Insomnia. 😊 2y
GarthRanzz @Oryx I‘m interested in the tie-in as well. I think I‘ll save reading it for after reading the Tower books though. 2y
GarthRanzz @rohit-sawant Does it require knowing the Tower books to enjoy it, you think? Or maybe take on a whole different meaning. I keep thinking I need to read the Tower books all the way through to enjoy it. 2y
rohit-sawant @GarthRanzz Sorry for the late reply! I missed this in my notifications. Being familiar with the series must add a zing to it, but I think you can find this enjoyable all the same without knowing much about TDT. I'm just two books into the series and hoping to start the third soon! 2y

• Day 9 of #KingAtoZ is a King book I‘m currently reading: “Insomnia.” I figured most people would think of “It” or some version thereof so I went with what I consider one of his lesser-known works. It‘s a good slow burn of a book... •

BebsReads Is this one good? I just finished reading The Mist, and am considering picking up another Stephen King title. 2y
Readage @Bebs I am enjoying it but I‘m certainly taking my time reading it. It‘s not action-packed by any means...it‘s what I consider a “slow burn” of a book. I guess most King books are a “slow burn” in a sense (partly because they‘re typically such doorstoppers!) I got through “The Tommyknockers” much faster than this one but I think it‘s because I listened on audiobook. You might try that one or “Insomnia,” both of them are good in my opinion. 2y

I is for Insomnia.

Looking for the book in this pic? Don‘t bother. While that remains one of the best visual puns ever, I just grabbed two handfuls of books off my shelf, and my point is made.

Because this post is about my relationship with SK & the condition of insomnia.

I can‘t decide if he‘s my cure for it, my companion through it, or the cause for it. All I know is I‘ve gone to bed with SK more than anyone else in my life 😏

GarthRanzz Well I may have to rethink my I now...😊 Insomnia is my choice too. But I like this. I totally identify with the condition of insomnia and have spent many a night over my lifetime reading King while I couldn‘t sleep. 2y
MinDea I was going to pick Insomnia too! 😂😂😂 @GarthRanzz now I might have to rethink it. I was thinking more about how I have insomnia more so than the book or how his books have cause insomnia! Back to the drawing board. 2y
Sweettartlaura @GarthRanzz @MinDea Ahhh, I should have known this was a condition for many King fans. I just wonder what comes first for us... the sleepless nights or our first King behemoth? 🤔. I‘m sure there‘s more to say on this if you still choose Insomnia -have at it! 👍🏻 2y

• Stayed up til the wee hours of the morning for the past 2 days. I couldn't sleep again last night (which is very unusual for me). I'm feeling it now after only a few hours of shut-eye this morning and minimal coffee. It's going to be ANOTHER long day (and probably) night of textbook reading and trying not to overtax my fragile student brain. Quizzes and assignments coming up and I'm like "CAN I DO THIS OR NOT?!" •

Jamesmelvinmitchell "It" was my favorite (I hate clowns) but my solid 2nd is Insomnia. 3y
HotMessJess Stephen King is the MASTER of small towns! Under the Dome?! Bag of Bones?! Literally all of his towns! I want to do a pilgrimage to Maine to check out the area! 3y
HotMessJess I also grew up in a tiny town with parents from an even tinier town. My hometown had about 5,000 people, but only about 1500-1800 of us lived in town and everyone else lived scattered throughout the country. King NAILS the politics of tiny towns! (edited) 3y
Zelma Very cute! 😻 3y
Bklover @Cinfhen 😉👍 3y
minkyb Well done! 3y
AmyG I loved this book...but only because it was read to me by Eli Wallach. My favorite audiobook. And...beautiful cat! (edited) 3y
AmyG @HotMessJess I so agree with you. SK writes about small towns, average people...like nobody else. We vacationed in Maine one summer and I only agreed to go if my husband took me to Bangor...to pilgrimage to SK's house. We wound up finding it and I was overjoyed. 3y
HotMessJess What a good husband! That would be a dream vacation for me! 3y
Bklover @Jamesmelvinmitchell "It" is my second favorite! 3y
GatheringBooks you are right about King championing the eerie vibe of small towns. 3y
Bklover @AmyG omg I would LOVE to see SK's house. He would be there of course, and invite me in to talk books!!! Well...maybe. Would be amazing though- sounds like you have a great husband! 3y
AmyG @Bklover My next door neighbor went to this hotel for the weekend, years ago, and SK was there. I will always hate her for that. ;) 3y

• Found a hardcover copy today at uni library. Sometimes it's just better to spread out with a nice thick hardcover! SCORE! 🤗📖👍🏼 •
