Engrossing!

Super scary and disturbing novel! This book starts out with a husband and wife at their cabin in a remote location. What started as sexy fun and games quickly turns terrifying. I was mad at King about the how the issue of the stray dog was resolved; he didn't do anything wrong! Anyway, this book truly scared me...after reading it one night I woke up in the early hours to use the bathroom and I was so spooked I made my German Shepherd come to the bathroom with me! I couldn't believe the ending; King really surprised me with this one! I would also recommend: The Stand, The Dark Tower Series (especially Wizard and Glass), Needful Things, and The Eye of The Dragon. You may also like the novels of Dean Koontz, especially the older ones (Whispers, Watchers, Night Chills, Phantoms, and Cold Fire).

    Do not waste your money - my first disappointment with Stephen King...

    I am a long-time fan of Mr. King's writing, so imagine my disappointment at having to force myself to get through page 74 before I finally gave up. For one who enjoys reading dialogue, this book is not for you. It delves into the inner workings of one person's mind, thoughts, etc. I wish I had not purchased this book.

    Not one of his best. . .

    This was by far the worst Stephen King book I have ever read. It goes on and on and on and on. . .You get the point. There are good parts but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. I am a loyal SK fan and I am not going to let this book ruin my picture of him. He is awesome!

    Could've Been Better

    This book is Stephen King's worst. It is very different from his normal exciting books. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
