    Not my favorite King book

    Stephen King is my all-time favorite author! Unfortunately, Needful Things was/is a disappointment. I am about 20 pages from the end and can not bring myself to finish the book. I continually pick it up, but after a few pages I have to put it down because I can not stay focused on it. The story is way too drawn out with too many characters, all doing the same thing. Basically it is really boring. This is the only King book that I have not enjoyed.

    Not that great

    It wasn't very interesting, only some parts of the novel were actually interesting enough to read, the story is not thorough and changes completely.

    a long, long read...

    the book's a bit thick and so i took around 1 week to finish it. it was interesting for the first 300+ pages but after that, the progression of the story u can even guess it yourself w/o finishing it. there's not much twists in the story and i finished the book more for the sake of finishing it rather than wanting to know the ending. the many characters in the story reminds me of his other book, 'Salem Lot. but if you are a true stephen king's fan, you will still wanna read it.

    Not One Of King's Best...

    Overall this was a good book. It took me a while to get interested and I found when it did get interesting, it often trailing off into boring territory again. In some spots I also found it to be quite crude and offensive although did have a good, descriptive ending. I did like how King gave interesting character profiles and that was one part of the story I could dig into. 'Needful Things' wasn't one of King's best but I did enjoy it.

    Wasn't really what I expected

    The rest of the reviews explain the plot but personally I was somewhat let down. While we do see King's style better than ever I didn't see much into the book. It just seemed like one of those books that drag on and on and on and on...you get the idea. My personal view is to try a different King novel.
