That's funny - by banning it, they made it more desirable for you at that age! (sort of a reverse psychology kind of thing)This book tends to be polarizing, at least in my own experience, I had a girlfriend once who wasn't a very big horror fan, who decided to read this book one day out of boredom and loved it, and on the other hand my mother was always a huge King fan and I think this might be the only book she disliked so much she didn't finish.
"Different strokes for different folks" as they say.
I always liked it, but I haven't read it in a while. I remember it having this sort of "Outlaw" vibe for me though, from the time I was young my family was pretty open minded about letting me read or watch whatever I wanted (more or less) but I remember being told specifically not to take this one off the shelf (I was around 11-12 at the time)...... so naturally I did. I would read it either when I was home by myself or people were asleep, and write down what page I was on on a scrap piece of paper to avoid bending a page, using a bookmark or leaving any other sign that I had touched it lol
Yet another I should put on my "Read again" list.
I recall reading this book a long time ago. I think it was the last Stephen King book I read and then took a long hiatus (no real reason for it) until I read a review of 11/22/63.
(I think that may have been how I discovered the SKMB in May of 2012??)
I see it was published November 2011 so I wonder why it took until December to get reviewed in Winnipeg? That was back in the days when I ordered books from the library rather than buying them
