    Fair enough. Life would be so boring if we all thought the same way.

    It's my favourite King book, a movie could never do it justice. I did'nt like the changes, it all felt a little silly somehow. One example of a thing i disliked: in the book, when Jakes steps into 1958 for the first time he's is totally mesmerized and shocked by the fact that he is in 1958. I could totally picture myself in his shoes when reading this, the walk on the stairs, then all of a sudden feeling the sun and then stepping into the past. I really looked forward to seeing this moment in the series but when movie Jake goes back in time for the first time he is thrown in the past, looks around a little surprised and it's really not a big deal. Sure, he's surprised but the whole thing really fell flat to me. That was the feel off the entire series for me. In the book Jake is still in awe of the fact that he's in the past, throughout the entire book. In the series it feels like Jake accepts it for what it is so they can start the show.

    I also was surprised at the fact that he just steps into what looks like a busy street scene - in the book it felt more like he was in the back part of the Worumba Mill and therefore nobody would notice he was there (well, except for Yellow Card man).

    What GNTLGNT said - this happened to a character in The Dead Zone as well.

    Thank you Guys !
    Havn`t read "The Dead Zone" and i only watched the Series 11-22-63
    Maybe there is a mismatch between the Book and the Series,
    or maybe i have to read "The Dead Zone" to understand, maybe i`m to stupid.

    I think the Clothespin is a Punishment....
    Ordered or Self-Punishment ?
