1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    i have no more wish for you to be silent as i would i...or any other, mjs...i would find it a poor palaver, indeed, if the most amount of voices could not be evenly heard 'cross the campfire: a good discussion requires, it seems, a vast sea of ideas to float a better boat...

    or..at least...if only to keep the wolves at bay...

    either way...no worries, mate

    i actually do like what he was going for...but for me...it got lost in all the same sort of gobbledegoop he, imho, too often mires his endings in...and i'd add that i felt similarily towards BOB, the stand, UTD, Duma, LS...and a few others

    for some of us...quite a few books, as GP mentions (but for probably different reasons: i loved everything about the book Cujo), might have had 3-4-500 pages of sheer storytelling brilliance...only to be let down by some odd renderings at the ending

    Understood..beauty is in the eye of the beholder,yes? This book,and the Stand,Insomnia,The Shining,and so many of his short stories are favorites,while many did not measure up for me,in particular,I didn't care for Lisey's Story,Desperation,Gerald's Game,From a Buick 8,etc..you can't please everybody every time,that is for sure..

    That was Eddies personal horror as they called it in the book.
