I just finished it today and boy oh boy I cried so much. This book is just perfect.

It is lovely, isn't it? I thing Lisey's is the most 'literary' of Mr. King's books, too. The things he did with time jumps were just incredible--flashbacks are very difficult to do without it feeling 'clunky' to the reader, or without the writer's own voice intruding. In this, though, the transitions were absolutely seamless--lets you get caught up in the story without that, "Oh wait--we've jumped around here" feeling.
The story of a marriage and loss is so compelling that Booya Moon almost feels incidental. I cried a lot, too, and it made me think about my own long-time marriage. It even got my 'non fiction only' reading husband to sit down with a novel! That's an accomplishment!
That is a nice new avatar rudiroo!Yep. Swept away by this book too, because it's about loss and how we deal with it (or not), among other things.
But that deep connection between Lisey & Scott. . I don't feel it, because I've never had it.And the "Incunk" hunters are so irredeemable that they truly deserve what they get
Them's the breaks
