I had a lot of doubts before reading this book.The whole idea of continuing an amazing classic had me skeptic.But McCammon delivers with one of the most scary,disturbing,pulsepounding novels I have ever read.Anyone with small children beware of the ending,you may lose sleep that night. But ultimately one of his best.

This book had a creative and imaginative storyline My only complaint would have to be that the final reveal was underwhelming and weak so, I have to rate it as three stars for effort
