OK, so I felt bad Thinner didn't have anything in it yet. The book is my favorite of the Bachman novels. I loved the book and I thought they did the movie well. I didn't read the book as Bachman novel though, I read it in paperback with Stephen King's name on the cover when I was younger. I did find it in the book club edition recently with no mention of King and "Bachman's photo." It's pretty cool. The message throughout the book I always thought is "Don't be a jerk because payback is hell."
