On a long-overdue rereading...

    Better than I remembered. I would have placed this one in the bottom 5 for me. It's still probably in the bottom 20%, but that's quite a bit higher.

    When the book came out, I was a college student. I am now a father of girls, and a cop. There are just so many more dimensions to it now. Mind you, they make me extremely uncomfortable, but I appreciate them being there!

    It's been all I can do the last 8 years to keep up with the newest SKs. I haven't reread anything but the Stand, It, and Dark Tower in a long while. I'm going to make it a priority to revisit some of the 80s and 90s works that I haven't read since they came out. Maybe Buick 8 is next.

    Howdy, Officer Nell! I loved this one, too. I read it when it first came out in hardcover in a marathon of one sitting. I'm ready to see the Netflix adaptation.
