    This is the only SK book that I didn't finish. It didn't engage me at all. Having said that, a fair amount of time has since passed since then, so I might just give it another whirl.

    Do it imajica! You won't regret it. You'll also have a good basis of comparison for the filmed version. It starts out a bit slow but builds up and up. Also, a few easter eggs along the way that you might recognize.

    Maddie Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    It must be really challenging for them, HBO bought the rights for this story over 10 years ago, and still no film. It might be a blessing in disguise though , if they ever get it done I hope its conveyed as brilliantly as Stephens words, it might not be possible.

    Rose Madder was the one i could not put down to even sleep. Its when I realized that Stephen was actually a Genius, and not only step inside the mind of a killer, but could BE one, so very clever! I agree with Scott that the supernatural elements and painting to the dirty criminal realities were what really made it unique and a pawnshop on the street was the doorway to her dark fairytale forest.
