I can't believe I have to watch TV if I want to find out what happens to the characters in a book.
This book reads as though it were written over the course of a long weekend using a templete. We've got the crotchty old lady with lots of spunk (she even swears!), her lazy son who has no decernable personality, a couple of wise cracking medics and an evil doctor. Check, check, double check and check. The characters are two dimensional (if that) and the plot thin, really the only thing that kept me reading was curiousity (which, due to the 'to be continued' stye ending was a waste of my time). I know Stephen King can write much better than this, unfortunately he continues to churn out trash to satisfy the minds of typical America, i.e. the people who watch Survivor, American Idol and whatever else FOX, ABC, CBS and NBC happen to force feed them. I can't think why I even went so far as to pick this book up, I ought to know better then to try and read something with an advertisment for a TV show on the cover. In the future I will know better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
