    This is an absolute MUST read. In my opinion BoB is easily one of the best books he's written since the early 80's.

    Bag of Bones was very good. I loved this book. Much better than the series on TV. Although I like Pierce Brosnan as an actor he just did not cut it for me as the writer. I pictured someone more like Stephen King!

    I loved the book, liked (almost loved) the movie. I read the book after watching the movie.

    IMO Bag of Bones the novel is a 9.5 but the mini series was utter garbage.

    I liked Bag of Bones very much. It's a subtle kind of ghost story, yes, but a very appealing one. If I'd have to rate it, I'd say a good 8.

    Here are some things to note for whoever is wondering if this book is worth reading before trying it. I understand everyone has different opinions so i will be basic. This was an enjoyable read, it wasn't great, but it was enjoyable and i'm happy I did. It's NOT a book that will keep you trapped turning pages until 5:00 in the morning, some parts are slow, and the book is long, but in the end you will appreciate this book. I give it an easy 4 stars out of 5.

    I specifically clicked on this forum because BoB is the one novel by Stephen King that I can never remember if i've actually read or not because it just never stood out to me. I've probably reread the back of it over a dozen times to remind myself what story it is and I always remember that I have read it but it never felt like a Stephen King story to me. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it but it's one of my sisters favorites and after reading all of these comments, I might have to give it another shot.
