    It s a love story done Stephen King style and so perfectly done that my first thought after finishing was to read the novel a second time The characters are so genuine and universal that everyone will love them, and the story is both magical and heart breaking at exactly the same time.

    King wanted to try something new and autobiographical at the same time, it reminded me of his experiment with telling a love story in one of The Dark Tower novels, I just can t remember which one it was There is not much happening and many will find it unsatisfying and boring, because this is one of the most personal novels King ever wrote It s a reflection of the time when he recovered after being seriously injured and thought about what might happen if he dies, what stays if he is away forev King wanted to try something new and autobiographical at the same time, it reminded me of his experiment with telling a love story in one of The Dark Tower novels, I just can t remember which one it was There is not much happening and many will find it unsatisfying and boring, because this is one of the most personal novels King ever wrote It s a reflection of the time when he recovered after...

    Reading this makes me think of all the literary critics Stephen King has had to put up with over the years If a reader does not like his writing, that s fine, to each his own as the saying goes I ve been on the outside looking in and in the minority opinion plenty of times, but I can usually see how someone could like a work, or evenfrequently, respect the hard work that went in to creating a published book.Some of Stephen King s critics have been nasty, defaming not only his writing a Reading this makes me think of all the literary critics Stephen King has had to put up with over the years If a reader does not like his writing, that s fine, to each his own as the saying goes I ve been on the outside looking in and in the minority opinion plenty of times, but I can usually see how someone could like a work, or evenfrequently, respect the hard work that went in to creating a publish...
