Bklover This is one of my favorites of SK. The characters are real and so normal. This doesn‘t feel like horror to me. It feels like a tragic story of Johnny - a guy who happens to have special powers. I think the creepiness for me is how much he could be anyone. 13mo
DGRachel @Bklover I think those make for the best kinds of horror stories! 13mo
BookwormAHN @Bklover I totally agree this is one of my favorites as well and it does seem more like a tragic story than horror. 13mo
CSeydel @Bklover Absolutely! 13mo
daena Yes @Bklover ! I can see this one becoming one of my favorite Kings too. 13mo
JulAnna I read this book once, a long time ago, and was very glad to re-read it now. I had not remembered the part of the story set in Castle Rock, and it was fun to see the introduction of those characters. There is still much about the book and the commentary on the tabloid press that is still relevant. I agree with @Bklover @CSeydel @BookwormAHN @daena - it is a great, tragic story. 13mo
JulAnna Also, if anyone is interested in this sort of thing, Dees-the Inside View reporter- shows up again much later in a story in Nightmares and Dreamscapes. I always appreciate the SK universe ! 🤓 13mo
Bklover @JulAnna I enjoy seeing the characters show up in other books as well! 13mo
Bklover @daena It‘s one of my favorites too! 13mo
daena Good to know @JulAnna 13mo

Mehso-so

I read #TheDeadZone for the #LosersClub buddy read this month. I didn't find the story as compelling or as cohesive as King's other books. I found it depressing and some of the research into mental health was inaccurate. (See spoiler below) It may just be my mood, but I was not that engaged. I have had trouble concentrating lately. I hope the next book brings me out of the slump.

@DGRachel @TricksyTails

Eggbeater A person with bipolar disorder typically wouldn't make a good serial killer. It's a disease of feeling way too much. The person is likely to have too much empathy for others to enjoy ritualistic killing. Seriously Stephen King, all it would take is one visit to your local psych ward to figure this out. 13mo

#thedeadzone Started this at the beginning of the #24B4Monday and just finished it. This was a reread for the #losersclub October read. This is one of my favorite King books. Johnny Smith is the best. #readathon⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Andrew65 Wow! Great start! 🙌 13mo

Bklover Good! Haven‘t read this one in a long time! 14mo
LauraJ Ordered a copy from book depository on the 24th...still waiting. 14mo
BookwormAHN The Dead Zone is one of my favorites 😺 14mo
SiriuslyWeasley I ended up reading ahead for this one...sooo good! Looking forward to discussing it next month. 💀 14mo
DGRachel @LauraJ I don‘t know what is going on with Book Depository. They used to be so reliable but my last several orders have all taken 1-3 weeks longer to arrive, after I received shipping notifications, than they were supposed to. 😔 14mo
