    It's been awhile since I've read this book, but I remember how heartwrenching it was. Thoughts?

    It was a heart wrenching book. Glad that it was rediscovered and published. Would recommend it as a good read.

    I need to give this one a reread. I remember it breaking my heart though. Maybe not give it another look before Christmas, huh?

    Love this book, it made me cry a few times. If ever there were proof needed that King is THE King at weaving an intricate story it's the fact he could make myself, and many others,
    feel pity for a kidnapper and also cry for him! Genius. :love_heart:

    I really liked this book, too, but it's too sad for me to re-read, at least at this moment in time.

    I loved this book. It madecry and I've read it three times. The whole tragic scenario. The way his partner stayed in his head.A good ending. Pure genius.

    More proof that King admires/likes Steinbeck. Family matters...and where do the ducks go when the pond is frozen? They find a way.

    I loved this one too! It's my favorite of the Bachman books. It has so much heart. Kind of like Joyland.
