Loved it. Sometimes I don‘t appreciate where King‘s stories meander but I was fully along for the ride. Billy was so endearing. The cliches (one last job) & writer‘s jokes/conventions playing out kept it from feeling too heavy. Even though it was heavy, lots of bad stuff happened. I‘ll be thinking of that ending a while. #losersclub

ShyBookOwl I also struggle with King's meandering. Love The Shining and Misery, though, so maybe this one will be worth a shot 1w
TieDyeDude I thought this was so well done. Even though it meanders, it also shifts genre, so the meandering seems meaningful. Having just left western Colorado, it was nice to revisit in the latter parts of the book :) 1w
5feet.of.fury @TieDyeDude the way the scenery was described was so pretty, I haven‘t been to Colorado in over a decade & could still picture it ❤️ 60m

This is a weird novella. It centers around Jamie, a kid who can see the dead. The ending comes up a little short but the nodds to It and the dead lights are fun.

BookwormAHN I enjoyed this one but I thought it ended rather quickly and could of used another chapter or two. 3w
5feet.of.fury I did not like this one, plotwise was ok -but seemed like 1/2 an idea to me -although many of his you never get a “why & how” and it‘s more about the characters react to the situation, which is very true here and the characters I thought were good except that I think the language/tone was wrong for the age / time period of the MC. Just in general the silly stuff he says. 3w

5feet.of.fury Also why the gross creepy incest ending that adds nothing to the story or plot in any way? 3w
BarkingMadRead @bookwormahn @5feet.of.fury 💯 agree, the incest seemed like a weird and unnecessary afterthought and the story itself could have been so much more! 3w
5feet.of.fury @BarkingMadRead I was yelling “Ewww whyyyy Stephen” immediately tanked the book for me, I wasn‘t super impressed with this one anyway & that was ridiculous. &so pointless 3w
PaperbackPirate The incest plot twist didn‘t ruin it for me but for sure I was like …huh. I made peace with it thinking that was supposed to explain where his “gift” sprung from? @5feet.of.fury @BarkingMadRead 3w
PaperbackPirate This was my favorite of King‘s 3 Hard Case Crimes. 3w

I had issues with the language/tone used for the POV throughout, but it was entertaining & weird. However the last couple chapters wtf why Stephen.

BarkingMadRead I remember thinking this could have been a novella. I‘m still re-reading right now, so I guess I‘ll see if I still think so 🤣 1mo
