Just joined this message board having just just finished Joyland this morning. I've just started reading the Dark Tower series, but took a short break to read this on the recommendation of a friend, and it was everything I'd hoped for and so much more. And what fun to discover this reader board, too! Hope everyone has a great day! Cheers, -Sean
Glad you liked it Sean, welcome to the boards. Enjoy your stay, we're a friendly bunch - if not a bit daft sometimes (but that's mostly gntlgnt)

I started it today and got well over 100 pages quickly, didn't want to finish it just yet so I put it down but I don't think it's as bad as most make it out to be. ( Of course I'm only halfway in! ) I'm enjoying the Duma Key, beach/carnival vibe going on. Kind of wish I had waited until our carnival came into town this year, that would have been cool!

Finished it today and I loved it, especially the ending. It was quite moving I must say! I'm a big fan of anything paranormal so I was thrilled that was included in there a little bit. It did seem a bit short and rushed, would have really worked well into a longer novel type, but with just the basic story he was trying to tell it was done nicely.

If you're not into crime stories at all, still read it, it's not so much a hard crime novel like most think.. The ending makes it worth the time!

weolme sean. I bought this book on the first day of release, because a. it was stephen king and b. I loved the cover. read it in 2 days. and didn't know what to do (except read another stephen king) I loved it. i forgot to make dinner and er clean myhouse, i was so absorbed. Sometimes, i read 6 Sk books and then move to another author, but i always come back to stephen king.

A few years back I had a copy of Under the Dome (which I believe weighs in over 1,000 pages) with me on the lunch table at work.

One of my friends asked me how long it would take me to read it and I said, "Oh . . . I'm not reading it. I just carry it around for exercise.
