    It's been awhile since I've read this book, but I remember how heartwrenching it was. Thoughts?

    It was a heart wrenching book. Glad that it was rediscovered and published. Would recommend it as a good read.

    I need to give this one a reread. I remember it breaking my heart though. Maybe not give it another look before Christmas, huh?

    Love this book, it made me cry a few times. If ever there were proof needed that King is THE King at weaving an intricate story it's the fact he could make myself, and many others,
    feel pity for a kidnapper and also cry for him! Genius. :love_heart:

    I really liked this book, too, but it's too sad for me to re-read, at least at this moment in time.

    I loved this book. It madecry and I've read it three times. The whole tragic scenario. The way his partner stayed in his head.A good ending. Pure genius.

    More proof that King admires/likes Steinbeck. Family matters...and where do the ducks go when the pond is frozen? They find a way.

    I loved this one too! It's my favorite of the Bachman books. It has so much heart. Kind of like Joyland.

    Just finished it! Loved it! Bravo and thank you SK! I didn't cry though. Is there something wrong with me that I think
    death isn't the worst bad thing, especially when life has been mostly $h!+ God bless Blaze for believing it would work out right up until the very last second. Only someone with the heart of a child could think that!

    I just finished it. Weird how King can make you root for a criminal who kidnaps a baby and kills two people:)

    You may not see this post, but I am at Value Village now just getting ready to buy a paperback copy of this book!

    It looks quite intriguing and I may already have a copy at home but what the heck, eh?

    It's always good to have a spare
