    I love his work and came to know of him because of Stephen. As I've stated before, The Walking is my favorite by him.

    Welcome back into the King world! You have lots of great books to read now!

    Hi, Neesy, welcome to the Board (keep posting, please.)

    I think it's just wonderful that 11/22/63 brought you back to the SK Universe. And that you persevered through Lisey's Story, as well.
    Enjoy FDNS.

    Hi, Becks- I've only read The Store, by Bentley Little, but I enjoyed it very much. And if memory serves me correctly, I believe there's a nice blurb by SK, which persuaded me to try it. I'm sure glad I did!

    Just finished Damned by Chuck Palahniuk, the first of his books I've been able to make it all the way through. His books tend to be too sarcastic/ironic for me. I don't like being reminded that I'm reading a book, no matter how clever the author is.

    With that said, it was an interesting premise; chubby, teenaged daughter of ultrawealthy hollywood narcissists dies, goes to hell, ends up running the place. If I had to describe it in one word it would be "cute".

    Just started The Windup Girl.

    Concerning Bentley Little The Haunted I should warn you all, that it contains quite a bit (overkill) of mature graphic subject matter. It wasn't the haunted, scare my socks off, creepy tale I was after.

    I am really, really hoping to finally finish my re-read of Eragon today! For some strange reason, I haven't been able to concentrate for longer than a paragraph or two, and it's getting VERY old! GrrrR!
    I WILL keep trying, though..

    I wasn't sure after "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" what I would pick up next, but finally settled upon "Black House". It was among a number of SK books given to me by a friend of mine who had acquired them from a woman who had recently passed away. It actually was a fairly large collection, and I took several of the volumes I knew I had never read, "Black House" being one of them. I did not initially realize that "Black House" was the sequel to "The Talisman", and suppose I should have stopped reading it when I figured that out, and read the latter first. But, at that point, I was far enough along to just keep going. It was not one of my quicker reads, but I liked it, and think now I have finally whetted my appetite enough to begin The Dark Tower series. (Although I will most likely pick up and read "The Talisman" first.) Henry and Beezer were my favorite characters. Although it took me some time to get into the story, once I did, I was eager to continue and finish. "The Talisman" is not one of the books my friend gave me, so until I can obtain a copy of it at the library, I am starting "From A Buick 8", which is one of the others she passed on to me.

    Ive read all of the Jack Reacher books and I loved them , but I have to agree, there is NO WAY Tom Cruise could play the character,my god there is not a more unlikely person to play it!! Plus is would spoil it for me as I do not like him as an actor anyway.
