Proud to say this is one of my teen daughter's favorite books. Even prouder to say she never went Twilight-crazy like most girls her age.
A great read, even if you're not into the vampire genre (which I am not).
This is the book that brought me back to Stephen King. I read "Dreamcatcher", which grossed me out so much that I couldn't read anything else for years. Then, in university, we visited the Lot in a course on Horror Fiction, and I fell in love. Next was "The Shining", then "Carrie", and so on, and I've been a constant reader ever since. This is still a favourite.
Lol I shared your exact sentiment after reading Dreamcatcher. But by that time in my life, I was too wrapped up in SK's many wonderful worlds to even think about not reading more. I just finished it and said, "Blah, that was pretty revolting....ok time to move on the next book."
Just finished it a couple of weeks ago. Just advice from one friendly constant reader to another. A lot happens in this read and the pace is very fast at times. What really helped me keep on point and a top of it was everytime I came back to the book, I went around 5 pages back from my book marker. It really helped plus once I got back to where I left off I was already sucked back in and ready for take off. Made it much more enjoyable.
