I have picked this book up and started reading about 5 times now. Time goes by between each attempt. I don't understand why the first 20 or so pages just do not sink into my mind. It's like I can't envision the story being told or something. Very strange. This is the only book by King that I do this with. Anyone else have a hard time following this story? Maybe it was because it is co-written with Peter Straub?
