So, I'm starting the new King novel.
Not gonna lie, as I felt burned by King before (the ending for Under the Done made me soooo mad)!
I've got high hopes! Tell me it's GREAT please!

I was super curious about the Camel Corps referred to in this book.
After a little googling, and studying, the whole story seems to make more sense. I see many people dumped out of Inland, and I understand why. I'm on page 150 and its finally starting to come together. The stories don't fit smoothly together, but I still have hope.

At first it was hard to get into. Once you get used to "wild west" (for lack of a better term) slang, it starts to turn into a can't-put-down story.

Just such a beautiful, yet sad book.
Fantastic read so far.

This book was every emotion possible.
Anger, joy, sorrow, hate, fear, sadness, anxiety...
It is an important book. This author makes sure we never forget.

keithmalek I'm a New Yorker, so I don't even want to try to read this. However, I have managed to read two related books that I want to recommend here. One is about the intelligence failures that lead up to 9/11(why that's somehow easier for me to deal with I don't understand) called The Watchdogs Didn‘t Bark. The other book is "Grand Illusion" by Wayne Barrett, which is about Giuliani's negligence to protect the WTC between the '93 bombing and 9/11. 5d
Rollinsfan1 interesting!! I will check these out. This book did touch on the FBI's lack of interest. Such a profoundly sad day. 5d
