This is my favorte book. It has a great story line and is typical king gruesome. Couldnt put the book down when i read it first. Nooks version, however, is laced with errors that are distracting from how wonderfully great the book is. A must read whether on nook or old fashioned with a paper book.

The nook copy is bad!

I love this book, it is another great by Stephen King. However, the NOOK Book or eBook is not worth the money. The nook copy has a lot of problems that do not exist in the real copy, the worst of which is the spelling errors on every page that uses the wrong words. ...

To me this book looks like someone used a bad OCR to scan the book and no one checked what had been scanned. For exammple, in the book the word "closed" is used many times, but in the NOOK book it reads "dosed" every time. Unfortunately, this happens with a number of letter combinations leading to wrong words on every page.

So, my recomendation for anyone wanting to read this great book is to go buy a hard copy rather than wasting your money on an eBook with so many errors.

    And again...

    Every time the word "close" appears in this book, it is typoed as "dose". It annoys the crap out of me, because this is one of my favorite King books, but the amount of typos is almost unbearable. I would recommend NOT purchasing the nook version, and instead buying the paperback, so you can read the story instead of counting the typos.

    more from this reviewer

    This book stopped my reading of Stephen King books!

    I used to read everything that came out by Stephen King or any of his pen names but this is the novel that made me quit reading Stephen King! Thought it was a desparate attempt on his part to just crank out another and much stranger 'King' novel so that there would be something new out at that time. Wouldn't recommend it, ever!
