Desperation and it is by far the better of the two IMO.
I have not read the Regulators yet but I just got Desperation out of the local library on an audio book, read by Kathy Bates. So far, not too bad! (This is my first audio book).
I'm reading Desperation right now and I watched Misery last night with Kathy Bates. How weird is that?
Edit - I mean - Kathy Bates wasn't at my house - not like that, but that she's in Misery. I think I'm tired or too much wine. You understand, right?
If you go get some sleep and lay off the wine - you will be fine! HollyGolightly - hey you know I am just yankin' yer chain, right?
I read the Regulators right after Desperation and TBH I wish I'd waited a while - as mentioned before the characters are changed around a bit and I found it a little confusing for the first half of the book
Defenitely Desperation, it's much ... deeper than The Regulators, imo. May be this is because I read Desperation first. Sometimes I'm rereading Desparation, but The Regulators I read just once.
Both. At the same time. You have two eyes?
I actually think it matters which you read first. At least i liked the one i read first best and then, when i switched, was used to the characters there and when they popped up in totally different roles here i was confused and didn't get into the story at the beginning. I thought this ploy created unnecessary confusion since it wasn't explained at the time what the point was.
Desperation first, then Regulators. Regulators references Desperation but I don't believe the reverse is true. SKMB Constant Readers will correct me if I am wrong.
Desperation didn't come first. Both novels were published on the same exact day.
Like most people have already said, it does not matter in which order you read them. Both go hand in hand and both were released on the same day.
....he's not implying that one was released before the other, but simply offering his suggestions as to which one to read first....
I enjoyed Regulators more, so I'd read that one second.
The post I meant to reply Neil W)to said:
"He wrote Desperation first. I enjoyed them both. I read Desperation first but preferred The Regulators"
And my reply was he wrote both at the same time.
