Problems with typos and formatting

The book itself would get a star more , but there is a glaring problem with the actual transcription from the book to the digital format. There are abundant typos and much of the spacing and separation of passages used by the narrator in the original text is incorrect. ...

There are abundant typos and much of the spacing and separation of passages used by the narrator in the original text is incorrect. I'm pretty sure that if Stephen King was aware of this carelessly handled version of his first novel, he would not approve at all.

    Not Worth It

    K, i admit the book did keep me interested...for the first 1/2 of it, but as i got near the end i found the ending was bad and had that nagging feeling i just wasted a couple hours of my life. Not a good feeling from a book you're supposed to have enjoyed.

    I've always wanted to read SK.......

    ....but i guess i picked the wrong book. I saw part of the movie and it looked scary, so I decided to read it. I guess the only reason I was dissapointed was the fact that it wasn't scary, at all. If you know of any good Stephen King books that I might like better, please let me know!
