From international bestseller Stephen King, a tale of grief, of loves enduring bonds, and the haunting secrets of the pastthe inspiration for the A&E miniseries.Stephen Kings most gripping and unforgettable novel, Bag of Bones, is a story of grief and a lost loves enduring bonds, of a new love haunted by the secrets of the past, of an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire. Set in the Maine territory King has made mythic, Bag of Bones recounts the plight of forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who is unable to stop grieving even four years after the sudden death of his wife, Jo, and who can no longer bear to face the blank screen of his word processor. Now his nights are plagued by vivid nightmares of the house by the lake. Despite these dreams, or perhaps because of them, Mike finally returns to Sara Laughs, the Noonans isolated summer home. He finds his beloved Yankee town familiar on its surface, but much changed underneathheld in the grip of a powerful millionaire, Max Devore, who twists the very fabric of the community to his purpose: to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother. As Mike is drawn into their struggle as he falls in love with both of them, he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed hereand what do they want of Mike Noonan? As vivid and enthralling as Kings most enduring works, Bag of Bones resonates with what Amy Tan calls the witty and obsessive voice of Kings powerful imagination. Its no secret that King is our most mesmerizing storyteller. In Bag of Bonesdescribed by Gloria Naylor as a love story about the dark places within us allhe proves to be one of our most moving.

One of King‘s most underrated books. What starts as an intriguing legal thriller quickly unravels and turns into a rumination about trauma, revenge, and racial violence. Mike is a great protagonist, too. I‘m really happy I revisited this book.

A re-read however, I remember this book being stronger. The first 2/3 are brilliant. The final 1/3 is comparably weaker. Mot my favourite King, but still solid enough.

Still getting through it, but this dude was hungry for some “barely legal“ business when he wrote this one....christ....

JanuarieTimewalker13 Can you explain? I read this a while back...maybe a year and half ago, I remember the house, and I liked the book, but what do you mean? 14mo
llcoolnate @JanuarieTimewalker13 lol undertones when he meets her, leading to thoughts, then a graphic sex dream, then eventual outward sexual conversations (disregarding how silly and unrealisticallyit was presented lol)-- and that's all I've read so far. Decent chunk left, so I'm sure there's more too be had. 14mo
llcoolnate @JanuarieTimewalker13 horror is one of my favorite, if not my favorite genres. And yet how annoyed cheap sex scenes, goofy horny writing, and teenage-boy fantasy writing gets me makes me like..not the ideal candidate for horror. Hahaha. Just makes a book all that much better when the author isn't super horny and/or pandering lolil 14mo
See All 13 Comments
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh geez, I don‘t remember any of this. Was it his wife you‘re talking about? Didn‘t she die suddenly. Something about coming out of a drug store? 14mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh wait!! There was a younger woman with a child, is that who you‘re taking about? 14mo
llcoolnate @JanuarieTimewalker13 yeah the young mother who he speaks in long sentences about her nipples and how she'd be in bed and how young she is and how shes only had slept with 1 other person but she wants him and on and on and on lolol. I like some King stuff, but some is weak and seems to be propped by the name. I still haven't read The Stand or Salems lot so I'm really hopeful there. 14mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 You know what, there are men like that, it‘s creepy, I know. When I was younger and an older man would check me out, It made me pissed off. I haven‘t read The Stand yet. I read ‘Salem‘s Lot and I loved it. I still think my faves (thus far) are 11/22/63 and The Institute. (edited) 14mo
llcoolnate @JanuarieTimewalker13 I need to check out the Institute. I really liked Misery and The Shining, so I'm not writing him off. And there are definitely men like that out there....but in this story it's supposed to be endearing..and it's odd, and creepy. I just get picky and when someone writes from the perspective of a writer with writer's block I find it lazy. When I think they're writing their own fantasies..weird. 14mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 If you are going to read The Regulators and Desperation (companion novels/duology(sort of)), read Rose Madder first. Someone said that on Reddit. A character named Cynthia has her back story in RM. I didn‘t know that and I‘m almost done with D. Cynthia is a great character. 14mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I liked The Shining. I own Doctor Sleep but haven‘t read it yet. I prefer his paranormal and psychic stuff. That‘s why I loved The Institute. I‘m guessing Doctor Sleep has a lot of it bc it‘s the follow up on Danny. 14mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 I think King wants to make you uncomfortable. I think he wants you to know this is what‘s going on in some people‘s‘ minds. He has taught me so much. I wish I had read him as a teenager 14mo
llcoolnate @JanuarieTimewalker13 I'll grab Rose Madder then!! Thanks! 14mo

llcoolnate @wanderinglynn yeah I want to like them more than I do. The last several have been...rough. 1y
llcoolnate @Bigcountry15 oh good I need a redemption King book. Under the Dome, From a Buick 8, and the like were killin me hahaha 1y
bthegood @llcoolnate his short story The Reach is good, not a horror story, although I like his horror, it is a story that stayed with me. 1y
llcoolnate @Reggie yeah I'm 100% against the concept of an author writing from the perspective of an author with writer's block and forming a story based on life in his actual home town...and all that. Idk. As a multi-millionaire, best-selling, "king of horror", that concept seems really lazy at the very least. But who knows! Pluggin along with an open mind. 1y
llcoolnate @bthegood I'll need to check it out! 1y
wanderinglynn I read some of his non-horror books: The Body (the book the movie Stand By Me was based on) & The Gunslinger when I was much younger and liked them. And more recently I‘ve read Blockade Billy (novella about baseball) and On Writing. He has a few more not horror, like The Green Mile, but I haven‘t read those. 1y
llcoolnate @wanderinglynn yeah I heard the green mile was good! I liked On Writing, but haven't read much of the others 1y

#hauntedhallowswap Pictured are some of my favorite horror books. In general, I‘m a big time Stephen King fan. I love witches, black cats, and pastel goth. Other books I enjoyed that are not pictured include Fledgling by Octavia Butler and Hannibal by Thomas Harris. Somehow along the way I also ended up being really into zombie stories... The Girl With All The Gifts is another fave, but I still haven‘t read the sequel.

Addison_Reads @Reggie you're not alone. ☺ I know several King fans who don't like this one. They felt it was too slow and just not very engaging. Did you feel the same about it? My least favorite is probably Tommyknockers, but it's been years since I read it so I should probably give it another shot one day. 2y

Had this book on my shelf for awhile. Read close to 100 pages then put it down now picking it back up.. I love Kings plots but wish he wouldn't drag it out.. I always get frustrated with him and yell let's just get on with it already. I can't handle useless rambling but I'm also interested in the plot. Slowly but surely I can get thru it even if I read a few books in between

bookaholic1 This was actually one of my favorites 2y
MoBee @bookaholic1 , I'm struggling I thought I had read 100 but it's only 40 just feels like I've read more.. he just ramblings takes him forever when he could just say it and get to the actual point. I'm going to keep going maybe eventually it will grab me. 2y

I finished this one out of stubbornness, rolling my eyes at the widowed, 40-ish author falling in love with the 22-yo, flawless single mother (even if the character is embarrassed at himself). The writing is self-conscious, like King can‘t get out of his own head. The narrator quotes Chandler—when you‘re stuck on a story have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand—after the damsel in distress dies in the narrator‘s arms. #30booksin30days

Mixed feelings about this book—it's not well written. It's messy with a bunch of loose ends King tries to tie up with a ridiculous Scooby-Doo style scene at the very end. I think King's editor probably just waved their red pen over the stack of pages and moved it along. Trigger warning for pretty much everything. It contains one of the most brutal and graphic rape scenes I've ever read. And yet I could NOT put it down.

Holy Moly. This book was such an intricately woven yarn. One horrifically disturbing scene toward end...rape and extreme cruelty. Had that happened earlier in the book I may have DNF‘d it. Somehow, he had a way of allowing you to recover a bit before the end of the book, but you realize that the paranormal stuff is not the scary stuff, it‘s the depraved things some “humans” are capable of that are really the scariest elements of the story.

I find I go into time warps when I read King. I stay up late, everything gets thrown off...I‘m a little over a third into this and it‘s a cool ghost story but very slow burn. And you know popcorn ends up all over the bed. C‘est la vie! Oh and false teeth were called Roebuckers? Hahahaha...dentures from Sears...he always gives some odd historical info. Love him.

Ashley_Nicoletto I love that about him. I always fall into his novels and when I emerge I‘m usually scared. 🤣🤣 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Ashley_Nicoletto hahaha...that happened a couple of nights ago, the ghost whispered “Oh, Mike” and I was was like, “Ok, I‘m going to bed before I start freaking out”. Lol, but once he‘s ok with the ghost, I became ok with her. Now I want letters for my refrigerator just in case anyone otherworldly wants to communicate with me.

Reggie I can‘t really pinpoint why and maybe it was because I was in my early 20‘s but I really didn‘t care for this book. Which shocked me because I had liked every other book I had read by him at the time. And when I talk to a lot of people, this is their favorite of his!!🤷🏽‍♂️ 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Reggie It‘s super slow. And it‘s over 500 pages. Youth is in a hurry. I‘m not sure I could do this in my 20s either. It‘s a little hard for me now bc it‘s Springtime, yet it rained last night and it was perfect setting for SK reading, yet I didn‘t read!! I‘m on p 194, yet I feel like it‘s still the beginning...so much to unveil. 3y

Do you see the price tag on this Stephen King book? It‘s $300 for a signed edition at my local used bookstore! I‘ve never read Bag of Bones, but what do you think? Would you pay that much for it? Yikes! 😬😮

Reecaspieces Well...when he passes away it will be worth a whole lot more than that! 3y

AmyG I have always wanted a signed King book. But they are so expensive. 3y
Pruzy @AmyG I had no idea until today! Mind blown... 3y
Litpixie I could imagine that price if it were a first edition. 3y
Pruzy @Litpixie I mean 1998 wasn‘t that long ago, was it?? 3y
Litpixie First edition with just a signature raises the price. With a "To..." lower, unless the "To" is a well known person. Date of publication doesn't really come into play. 3y
Pruzy @Litpixie Combined with author popularity, right? 3y
Litpixie Sometimes. I saw a book of poetry by Amy Lowell inscribed to, I think Thomas Hardy, that was over $3,000. Not many people know Amy Lowell. 3y
Pruzy @Litpixie That price tag is probably also due to the book once being Hardy‘s. I doubt my signed The Small Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss is worth more than the 40 I paid for it since he releases signed books on his WorldBuilders store all the time. 3y
Litpixie Exactly. 3y
Aseleener Love love love Bag of Bones! 3y
Crash Back in the 90's I mailed two books to Stephen King to have signed, all I had to do was to pay for the return postage. I had found out that he was offering this, only 2 books and you could only do it once, and did it. Don't think he still does this but it's how I got two of my three signed King books. As much as I love his books $500 is too expensive for me. 3y
Pruzy @Crash Maybe your two books are worth about $500 now? 3y
Crash @Pruzy I doubt they are worth that much. SK does a lot of book signings so I can't see how $300 can be charged for one book unless it's a limited edition or a special edition/binding. 3y
