Ha! Not really. What did you think of this book? I loved it!
I thought this book would have been better without the supernatural elements, I would have preferred a straight thriller. Which is odd for me because usually I really like anything supernatural, but it almost felt out of place in the book. I haven't re-read it so I might have to give it another chance.

I remember thinking the same thing the first time I read it, FF. The second read it seemed like it wouldn't have been right without the supernatural parts. It fit better for some reason?
Thats exactly how I felt. I loved Rose and how she changed her life, but the second read seemed like it worked better.

I would definitely give it a reread - you may change how you feel about it. That's happened to me before...then again, sometimes it doesn't change anything! I thought that the source of the dome in UDT was out of place, haven't reread it yet, so I should probably take my own advice and do a reread of that one!

This book was wonderful. I like how she traded her engagement ring for the painting 'even Steven' :courage: - I was rooting for her all the way and how brave it was of her to just walk away like that. Her husband Norman was a truly evil man - a real monster. I did not mind the fantasy parts of the story. If I can read science fiction and fantasy then I can easily read this type of thing in a Stephen King book.

Hahahahahaaaaaaa!

I enjoyed the book and it made me MAD!
I was mad when I read about Norm Daniels. I like the rest of the book though.
I enjoyed Rose Madder like I enjoyed Insomnia. I enjoyed the trips sK took me on. I imagine anyone able to watch me read them would've been amused at my gaping mouth hole.
Wait... do you mean Captain Trips?
