    LOL ... Now I'm getting a little worried. This little voice in my head is all "Remember how you really fell in love with The Story of Edgar Sawtelle and seriously, check it, THREE STARS on Amazon? And remember how you didn't really like Girl with the Dragon Tattoo even though it won like 37 Oscars or Emmys or whatever and everybody loved it and it almost cured cancer? Why do you think you know what anyone else will like?"

    Your opinion of what is good reading is more valuable to me than that of some joker rating stuff on Amazon, or some clown voting for Oscars and wot-not. I for one appreciate your opinion, your posts prompted me to go get it after all. And if I don't like it I'll just send you a bill for the cost of the download, simple.

    I received some cool links from our friend Sarah at Simon & Schuster audio. I thought I would share them here:

    Listen to an excerpt of the audiobook on SoundCloud

    Holter Graham on narrating Double Feature:

    A - I greatly disliked Sawtelle.

    BUT

    B - I also greatly disliked Dragon Tattoo.

    SO

    There's still a chance you are right.

    Okay, so......

    I got to a very scary

    masturbation scene.
    I am now traumatized. As I am about the same age as Mr. Owen King and I feel like I grew up with him, I'm no longer sure how I feel about this book.

    But.... I'm still reading and I still like it so I guess my

    prudish ways
    can get over it.

    I'm sure it's not as nasty as

    some of the stuff his father has written over the years.
