I'm currently in the middle of this fabulous story, if I were on my kindle it may read a good 68-72%. I've found some delicious nuggets, the ones that Constant Reader always (or nearly always) touch upon like old friends do when bringing up long ago stories that share resemblance to or relevance in a current problem or situation. I saw Pennywise, and Christine (that little gal must really linger for King, he puts it in quite a few), From a Buick 8, me thinks. Though I can't be certain, I recall buying the book but can't say I recall the story. I even think, besides obvious cultural references, I caught one from Quantum Leap. Anyone else see that? I nearly always have numerous endings sitting on my mental back burners while reading. Kinda like a stew, new information is added to the pot, thus transforming the dish even if just a smidge. Most times, with King, especially since most of his stories truly live outside the plausible, my dish usually gets thrown out with the evening trash, why wouldn't it? I can't possibly think outside the box well outside the box! But this story is one of his few that, thusfar, have no paranormal elements. Shawshank is obviously the first that comes to mind for most, but Gerald's Game seems to be my go-to. Just wanted to put this out there, rambling thoughts that may retire once the conclusion has been read.
