Stick to horror genre Steve. It was OK, but it's just not what I'm looking for when I read King. What it comes down to, to me, is that anybody could have written this book; only Stephen King could write things like The Stand and The Shining. Read full review

Review: Dolores Claiborne

I somehow skipped this one when I was growing up. That was a mistake. I didn't see the movie yet either but I'll remedy that this weekend. This is a little shorter than the average King novel but I still loved it. If you like Stephen King at all you'll probably like this. Recommended. Read full review
