Think I'm swaying more towards that, although I've put off rereading Insomnia for years, since the first read bored me, say sorry! It was 17-years ago though so I may enjoy it more now I'm old(er).
    Insert forehead smack here....I totally forgot about those two Ally, now I have lots to read! I always forget to check my TBR pile! For some reason I am having a hard time finding the motivation to read these 2 books. Are they really good? I have struggled to get passed the 100 page point of The Passage, not sure why though.

    Personally, I would choose Cell...I have not read Rose Madder yet, but I have heard a lot about it, so I believe all three books are great.

    If I remember correctly The Passage was a bit slow in the beginning but it got a lot more interesting. I haven't read the second one. I hope you enjoy whatever you choose to read!
    I am also missing a new SK book this time of year. I loved reading the excerpt from Doctor Sleep that was with In The Tall Grass and I can't wait to read that book!!

    Jaime, I really enjoyed The Passage and The Twelve. At times I feel the story slightly lags in places but it always quickly picks up again. There's some very interesting characters, and the story is entertaining.

    I dreamt last night that I removed the cover from Cell and started reading it so I think this is the one my subconscious is telling me to go with.

    It's a while since I read Cell so that would be a good re-read too.
    But I also wait for some new SK story to come here translated. The next one
    would be 11/22/63 and then The Wind Through The Keyhole.

    I would read Cell again Ally (although I am probably two weeks too late and you've well made your decision by now!!)!!) I've just been on a re-read mission so they are fresh in my mind, just re-read Cell, 11.22.63, and The Shining, and read Rose Madder for the first time!

    I did try and read Insomnia ages ago and couldn't get through it... wondering if that's because I haven't read the DT series?

    Thinking of tackling one of SK's longer books that I havent read yet... can't decide between The Stand, or Dreamcatcher. Recommendations??

    Thanks. I did start reading Cell. Unfortunately I'm still only half way through it, I've just been too busy/knackered to read but hopefully I will finish it soon. Anyhoo, if you're after a long book to read then out of those two suggestions--and just in general--I would recommend The Stand. Enjoy.

    And another thang...how do you pronounce your username? Every time I read it all I see is:


    Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally
    Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally
    Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally Kill Ally

    Who me, paranoid?? Pahh!!

    I'm starting to have my recurring dreams again where I find a shelf with several Stephen King books on it that no one has ever read or heard of before. SK himself turned up in one of these dreams and he recognized me somehow, even though we've never met!
