Excellent story, I enjoyed every page of it. I have to say that I didn't expect the conclusion but was perfect and I don't feel bad for Billy.

This was one of the best movies I had ever seen in my life, and it teaches a lesson.

Thinner was original and oh so spooky! It weaves the reader through a culture - gypsies - that has intrigued people for a long time. I loved it and it is one of my favorites by Mr. King.

Well, I am back as an official "reader" of this book. Verdict: Great. The Bachman books demonstrate a grim attitude that reveals, sometimes, there is no way out, and things sometimes... just dont get better.

This is an incredible, chilling thriller that has me turning page after page. I am not finished reading it, yet, but have to post my thought on it. Chilling is all I can say!

I find this book incredibly offensive, and even downright racist to the Roma. It portrays gypsies as inhuman and evil, a level i wouldn't expect Stephen King to sink to.

i am reading this as an American Gothic Novel and i am trying to relate it to other Gothic novels of early America and i am at a stand still all i can match so far is the horror in it

I think this is one of the less good SK books. Still awesome of course, but it doesn't get close to, say, The Shining, Pet Sematary or Misery... but still, you should read it.

Just finished this novel, completely awesome, gave me some horrorific images. I know the Bachman novels have a darker ending to Kings novels, I execpt that (I didn't mind how the regulators ended) but I didn't like the way this one did. -*SPOILERS*- ( DON'T READ ON IF YOU HAVN'T READ THE REGULATORS) It was annoying after all Billy (and we the reader) just for him to kill himself. In the regulators when Seth kills himself is different because nobody in that storie knew he was going to do that and he was more sacrificing himself the killing himself.

I agree with Michael. It was a good book, but the ending was really shocking.
