I just finished re-reading this about a month ago. I found it even better than the first time. My weakness when I get a new King book is to power through it and not chew lightly. Or maybe the story pulls me through too quickly because it's so good. Anyway, I've been re-reading a lot of his works lately, currently it's 'Salems Lot.

Ah 'Salems Lot....what a book....I'll have to get a copy of it and give it a re-read myself...I loved the film...real horror....vampires and haunted house....the vampire boy scratching at the window...that gave me shivers!!! The guy in the chair with the evil eyes saying "look at me teacher".....shivers!!!

I loved this book the first time I read it, although the ending gave me mixed up feelings. Usually on second reads you can visualize different things, other details that you might have missed on the first try, so I am thinking about giving Revival a second visit.
However, I would like to try this time the mass market paperback version (pocket size). Does anyone know if there will be such version in the US in the near future? I think there was one in the UK but not sure.
Happy re-reads!

I just finished reading it and now I've gotten into Mr. Mercedes .....Revival reminds me of the story Frank Zappa tells of him signing Gail into the hospital when Dweezil was born. The form asked him his religion, he looked at his wife and wrote down "musician".
