Enjoyed this book. The exploration of the life of a marriage was well done. Also some of the passages relating to the parent-child relationship were quite insightful and moving.

Are you a bitter ender?

In theory I'm not but having reached > 50% in my current read I feel I want to finish despite not loving it.

I enjoyed this. A well drawn portrait of a relationship between two people figuring out who they are.

I read the short story growing up and it had a big impact. Powerful, emotional.

This is the novel which has expanded the back story. It's a bit dated and loses some of the punch of the story.

Mr. Mercedes: A Novel | Stephen King

I enjoyed this in the end but early in I wasn't so sure.

The 'voice' of the characters felt a bit off to me. But as the book his on the tension builds and it becomes very page turning by the end.

Mr. Mercedes | Stephen King

Picked this up again after a break of a few days. Had to spend a good forty minutes reminding myself of what has happened so far.

*sigh*

But let's not make this about my rubbish memory.

I'm enjoying this book. But different to other Stephen King books I've read. Which is only a few really. Quite like that so far it's a mystery.

Not bad. The radio adaptations with Bill Nighy are better.

BethM Welcome! What is this? I love Bill Nye 💕 8mo
latepaul @BethM it's Bill Nighy the actor, not Bill Nye. I think I initially put “Nye“ by mistake but corrected it.

There are several BBC Radio adaptations of this series of books. I came to the books having heard and enjoyed the radio shows. The books so far - only read the first three - are so-so mysteries. Maybe just not my thing.
