    80sFan Just one more chapter...

    ...I've read synopsis of the book and some reviews, so I kinda sorta know what it's about, but can anyone tell me is it very sci-fi, or is it horror?
    Or both?
    Or neither?

    Thanks!

    Not very sci-fi (beyond the plague itself), a little bit of real-world horror (bad people doing bad things), some fantasy elements.

    I just got mine today and am quite excited!!! I try to stay as ignorant as possible about plots and synopses. Knowing it's King is good enough for me. All the best, mal.

    I'm really excited for this, I'll look out for a copy after next pay.

    Same for me- I don't want to know too much about the book before hand. I want to be surprised while reading a new book. I used to read all the excerpts that were available for various King books but even that kind of spoiled things so I don't do that anymore.

    Imagine my surprise and delight when I opened my Kindle Monday night and there it was! I had totally forgot the release date. But I'm in the middle of The Handmaid's Tale right now and promised myself I'd finish it before jumping into SB. Trying to avoid spoilers is a real trick for us Mods. ;)

    Only on page 95, didn't get to read any today because I was at the movies all day. Initial thoughts: This book is friggin' great so far, it's like Under the Dome but a lot better.

    danie I am whatever you say I am.

    I have to read everything SK writes, but I’m sorry to say I didn’t like this one at all. If I had to do it over, I’d wait for the paperback, or even better, find it at the thrift store for 50 cents.

    I haven't read Sleeping Beauties yet, I'm reading one of the books he wrote with Peter Straub. I thought I heard he is making another book with Straub, but I might be mistaken. I liked Gwendy's Button Box.
