    I've always wanted her job. Back before I found this forum...before there was a forum....before there was an Internet.

    There was a Marsha being thanked in the Constant Reader letters. And that was always my dream job.

    In a recent interview, SK said the following: "As it turns out, King retains the power not only to scare his readers, but also himself. He was cagey about Revival, noting ominously that, “It’s too scary. I don’t even want to think about that book anymore.” When pressed, he continued, “It’s a nasty, dark piece of work. That’s all I can tell you.”"

    Carnivale was a cool show. Strange plots and characters. I was wanting a third season on that one.

    Me too! I was so disappointed. A freak show set in the dustbowl -- eat that Steinbeck!

    The only reason I’m waiting ”patiently” is because I think I can fill the wait time by reading The Shining, Doctor Sleep, The Talisman, and Under the Dome part 1 and 2.

    I’m not actually going to wait patiently. I know Ms. Mod won’t break her seal of silence, so I won’t bother with the cute faces :adore: :m_loveu::snot_bubble:

    Ill just do this


    and this


    Ok, I am done being immature...for now.I will go back to reading The Shining

    I was looking forward to this more than Mr. Mercedes, which I really wasn't thrilled about.

    Now, I have started Mr. Mercedes and I love it. As for Revival, I'm not so thrilled anymore. I thought is was about a Faith healing revival type religious leader. But it sounds like I was wrong. Now, I'm kind of on the fence. I'll eventually read it, but I won't be running out while it's new.

    There is that element in it but I can't say much more without giving away the plot.

    I do not know how spooky the story Revival is going to be, but after posting in this topic my bathroom lights blinked and completely went out, all six light bulbs.

    I did not make that up. Bathroom lights are expensive and a pain in the ass to find, and they all went out at the same time. :grumpy:

    I'm not sure I can remain very patient as normally I can't with a King novel. And this one sounds awesome! So, I will impatiently wait and save the patience for when I slowly read it and take in what sounds like a very creepy story.

    Hmm I preferred Joyland, 11/22/63, and Dr. Sleep to Mr. Mercedes. I'm ready for a Revival!! :D

    I just finished my Advance Copy of Revival. This has to be the darkest story King has written. The ending is so nasty I truthfully don't know if I'm going to reread this for a long, long time.

    Marsha, are you at least allowed to tell us how many pages are in Revival; I would like to know how many nights of sleep I’m going to be missing.

    I can help here. The US copy is 406 pages, although the back of the ARC says 416.
