Hi everyone.

I was reading Roadwork and I was wondering if anyone had any links to early reviews of some (or any) of the Bachman books, before it was discovered that Bachman was really SK.

I love going back and reading reviews of books --or movies, Roger Ebert's website is great to go back and see early impressions of now-classic movies, like his original review for Night of the Living Dead-- that were written at the time it came out.

Anyone know of anywhere old reviews can be read?

Or (what would really be awesome) anyone read (or know someone who read) any of the Bachman books when they were still a secret?

I've always wanted to read the articles in People magazine and others like that when it was officially revealed that King was Bachman. Never thought to get these for my collection when it all happened.

Yep. Thinner was reviewed because it was hardcover. I remember one snarky critic saying, "This is the way Stephen King would write if Stephen King could write."
Ha ha, what a tool. This is just proof that there are many people who think King is crap and low brow and that they are somehow above reading King, based solely on his name and popularity.
