I'm coming clean. I have to admit it. Here goes: I've never read this book. It's the only King book I don't own. I fear I will be bored stiff...don't hate me.

Just remember that my experience has always been that I've never thought any of his books would be nearly as enjoyable to me as they ended up being. This attitude has always been due to my assuming something about what the story would be based either on its title or assumed subject matter. There's no sK book title which doesn't interest me now, regardless of what a movie based on it or opinion voiced of it may've been like, such as Firestarter, which I've yet to read. I just finished 'Salem's Lot, which I never dreamed I'd like as much as I did.
Why are you not interested, though, unless you are assuming something about the book? The point I made above - and in a number of threads in which I've posted concerning the question of whether or not to read a certain sK title - is that there's no way of knowing whether or not any book, but especially sK's, will interest you unless you at least start reading it.I've never read it either, and although I love Sai King and baseball, I doubt I ever will. Just not that interested.
Obvious question: Are The Talisman, Black House, and any others he's collaborated on included?I haven't checked all of them...but Faithful isn't listed in that "Works by Stephen King" list inserted at the beginning of most of my SK books. I wonder why that is? Looks like it was published in 2005...so maybe when the publishers made the "works" list, or when they inserted the list, they didn't bother to update the list? They don't make "works" lists like they used to.
