    A real life horror tale of a devoted and deranged constant reader! Another good movie adaption too! Must be Kathy Bates, eh?

    I messed up and watched the movie before reading the book. Except for The Dark Half, I always like the book better but since I knew what was going to happen, I never felt like reading the book. Maybe it is a good thing when the screen adaptations change endings lol

    I love this book. One thing I find odd though is that Kathy Bates didn't do the audiobook, even though she's done several other SK books. You'd think she'd be the logical choice.

    I liked this book because all the medical information was near perfect. He has some books like that where it's totally accurate and others that aren't. I don't know why it's so hard for me to read books with incorrect medical information, but it is.
    The books where he got almost all the information right are the ones I like the most. He also got it near perfect in Under the Dome and Doctor Sleep.

    I am reading this book after a rather long duration of about 2 decades. I think I got it in hardback when i was 16-18 and read it, now coming back to it. Seen the movie. Didn't Kathy Bates win an oscar for your portrayql of Annie Wilkes. Not sure. When i finish thi i am DETERMINED to go through the dark tower series. Apart from them and the girl who love tom gordon, these are the only ones I haven't read. Read Mr MErcedes and revival so i have until june (i think) to read the DT series.

    I don't know that I'm necessarily going to buy Sheldon's mother as Annie Wilkes.

    But there is a bit of irony there, if you can see it.
