User Review  - Matthew - Goodreads

This book went much more quickly than I had anticipated. Before reading Desperation, the only Stephen King text that I was familiar with had been "Survivor Type". I adored this short story years ago ... Read full review

Where Stephen King comes up with this stuff is beyond me. He must have some sort of supernatural link to creativity not unlike the characters in his own novels. I have nothing groundbreaking to say ... Read full review
