Grrrr....alright, 91...I'll try reading it again!
I'll give the library version a try. I'm iffy on this one
buuuuuutttttt......it's NOT really about baseball !!!
that's like saying i won't read 'christine' because i don't like cars...or...'delores claiborne' because i don't like domestic violence....or 'the shining' because i don't like hotels....
c'mon, it's about Billy...
this is a stephen king short story that was sold as a tale with a twist...
good story...i liked 'em both
I probably giggled more times from this story than any other SK book. So many great lines and so damn well written.
Finished it today. Took me 3 hours total and I enjoyed it.
I liked it. It was a bit like the stories in Full Dark, No Stars, which came out about the same time. I could mostly see where it was going, but it was a fun, dark little journey. I prefer Stephen King's novellas and long short stories to his novels and short stories. Not that I dislike the others.
If you can't take the heat, don't swim with the big dogs.
Love The Brain Jimpy. Welcome and I agree on novellas and short stories.
11/22/63 was the first king book I read and became a huge fan. then it was like a kid in the candy store. all these books to choose to read from. I am a huge baseball fan and played in college so I gravited to this one. I really liked it. I thought there was lot of room for this to continue and wasn't ready for it to end. I got the cemetery dance issue mainly I just don't like cover on board covers. cemetery dance came with a dust jacket and slipcase and the book was a little bigger. if I had to be picky the one thing is I don't quite understand why he couldn't have just gone out and make it on his own if he was that good. I mean there are open tryouts everywhere back then.
