    Ha! Not really. What did you think of this book? I loved it!

    I think this was the first book I read that dealt with domestic violence. Loved how the storyline played out.

    I loved this book and think it would make a great film.

    I thought this book would have been better without the supernatural elements, I would have preferred a straight thriller. Which is odd for me because usually I really like anything supernatural, but it almost felt out of place in the book. I haven't re-read it so I might have to give it another chance.

    I remember thinking the same thing the first time I read it, FF. The second read it seemed like it wouldn't have been right without the supernatural parts. It fit better for some reason?

    I liked the Bill Steiner character a lot. And, of course, Sai King did a brilliant job depicting the monster Norman. Like Spidey, it was my first novel that dealt with domestic violence. I think the topic was handled in a very intelligent and compassionate manner.

    I was so scared for Rosie! But her strength was an inspiration. I also liked it better on the second read.

    Thats exactly how I felt. I loved Rose and how she changed her life, but the second read seemed like it worked better.

    I would definitely give it a reread - you may change how you feel about it. That's happened to me before...then again, sometimes it doesn't change anything! I thought that the source of the dome in UDT was out of place, haven't reread it yet, so I should probably take my own advice and do a reread of that one!

    I enjoyed Rose Madder like I enjoyed Insomnia. I enjoyed the trips sK took me on. I imagine anyone able to watch me read them would've been amused at my gaping mouth hole.

    This book was wonderful. I like how she traded her engagement ring for the painting 'even Steven' :courage: - I was rooting for her all the way and how brave it was of her to just walk away like that. Her husband Norman was a truly evil man - a real monster. I did not mind the fantasy parts of the story. If I can read science fiction and fantasy then I can easily read this type of thing in a Stephen King book.

    I was mad when I read about Norm Daniels. I like the rest of the book though.
    Wait... do you mean Captain Trips?

    This book was a really tough one for me.

    ...well written, and the redemption/revenge aspect wouldn't have been near as effective for me WITHOUT the supernatural, otherworldy environs...
