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.
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.

...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!
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.

I'm thinking about getting Sleeping Beauties, can anyone tell me if its worth getting?
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.
