Genius doesn't begin to describe it...
"the man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed"
...yeah...i took the test...i got a rock...wait, wrong memory...i got a 90%
I'm so ruddy forgetful i'm too ashamed to take the test.
I got 100%, but I had to guess on a couple. Since I hadn't read all the books, I had to narrow down the choices. I'm glad it was multiple choice...
100% Whoo Hoooo!
Pretty sure you just got off a good one. 95% rated hijacking FTW.
70% but I haven't read all of the books listed.
I noticed that someone on this quiz page got 10 out of 10 in 7 seconds. How is that possible?
I got all 10 but it took me a couple of minutes.
I got 70 percent
Took the quiz, 100% correct.
This is another work of Mr. King's that I purchased upon release and haven't read for some reason or another. I guess I started to try to read more "serious fiction" such as Jonathan Franzen at that time. Not trying to make an author comparison, but I guess I felt Mr. King's works were like a new CD by a band that I loved that had put out 10 prior releases (not comparable at all to his output) and the new stuff didn't resonate with me as it had before. That ended after reading 11/22/63.
I just started Buick 8 and I think it is pretty good and I am starting to feel that connection with Mr. King again, as I did with finally reading Duma Key.
Hope that wasn't confusing!
I hope you like From a Buick 8 Timothy A! - I enjoyed it a lot but I also have a 'thing' about cops - I like them a lot
After many attempts I cant find the Sk groove in From a Buick 8! I was relatively young when it first published. Now I am old and I will try to get it once more. I remember wondering if Sk actually wrote From a Buick 8. Yes I found it that difficult to get to grips with and we all know that Sk works get read so quickly. Not having read the entire work I am in no position to pronounce judgement.
The glory of from a Buick 8 (see my essay in the book section) is in its subtlety. I think the whole thing is a metaphor for "**** happens"--there are no easy answers. There is no horrible monster to conquer. There is just weird ass life that people have to grapple with and an old Buick too. I think it is genius how it ends, personally---if you try to read it like a straight horror story---it will fall flat but if you read it as a metaphor about life, it blooms with possibility!
I got 100% on the test, and I have to admit, some of that score is flat out luck. I know it's blasphemy, but I have yet to read the Gunslinger series. I have read the Talisman and The Black House... which touch on the series, and I have a couple of the books on my King shelves in my home library, just haven't started the series yet.
