    Actually, he does sometimes cruise the Board.

    Perhaps it is you who should choose words more carefully. This post rides the ragged edge of calling for a warning. You're over-reacting to a comment because it called you out. I realize that makes you defensive but we don't look kindly upon nasty comments. Please refrain from name-calling and ad hominem attacks in future.

    That was the first time I ever felt responsible for somebody else, not just me being lost but both of us being lost, and it was pretty tough on a young kid knowing that I was responsible for what happened to her.. Even though I was scared for myself too..

    I enjoyed the girl who loved tom Gordon. my "least" favorite was the regulators. but I still enjoyed it. He is definitely not just a horror writer. I work at a bar and talk SK all night to anyone that listens. and recommend 11/22/63 to EVERYONE. Not one single person has complained about that story. one 65 your old man said that is the only "big" book he ever read.

    Tom Gordon was its in own type of story and I liked it. I love IT. Lisey;s story, Insomnia and on and on and on....

    Say sorry, I had to! Blackwood was a master of subjective horror. Found him through Lovecraft, whom I in turn found through Sai King. His tales of John Silence are especially fun!

    Well, I sure hope they don't do a pop-up version of 'Gerald's Game". I'll run outta Barnes & Noble screaming.

    i wouldn't say this book was my favorite by any means, but it was enjoyable. i'd be hard pressed to choose my least favorite really, because i enjoy most of what he writes.

    I just finished reading this book and I liked it until the ending. What I was thinking was going to be the end didn't happen.
    I thought that when she thought she was saved that it would be that man the radio was saying had abducted her. Although it would be horrible that a man like that would take poor Trisha and probably murder her
    Stephen King is a horror writer and that ending would have fit perfect.
