    King on Revival

    During his recent event at the Mark Twain House event in Hartford, King had this to say aboutRevival:


    The main character is a kid who learns how to play guitar, and I can relate to this guy because he's not terribly good. He's just good enough to catch on with a number of bands and play for a lot of years. The song that he learns to play first is the song that I learned to play first, which was 'Cherry, Cherry' by Neil Diamond. One of the great rock progressions: E-A-D-A.

    :m_love: Oh yeah...2014 is gonna be a good year!

    I preferred Mr. Mercedes myself but I was one of those who thought Joyland was meh so a matter of personal taste not because the writing was better for one over the other. :)

    Um - okay - I know there aren't any real puppies in it - that sounds to me like a military expression - were you ever in the service?

    Nope, just really country haha. Growing up in a really religious home in Eastern KY gave me a real interest in religion in general(various connotations others have with religion and religious groups), and this book right in my neck of the woods.

    The cover art for the Scribner edition has been revealed. You can view it here.
     
  18. I feel better now...thought i was alone on Joyland. For some odd reason i could never finish Joyland. The writing was great, but it just never quite had enough speed to get me over the hill. I felt like there was way too much description about that kid sweating and running around in a dog suit.....i was waiting and waiting for the murder portion and it never came. Guess i should give it another run in the future. It actually took me several different trys to get into the stand. Once i got some traction the book flew by, but the first 2-3 trys were not successful.

  19. I am really excited for this. I have been re-watching the HBO show Carnivale and the whole "Brother Justin" character makes me think of the brief plot synopsis we have what with the preacher and all.
