How many of you cried when Sadie died? I'm not too proud to admit that I am one.
I have to admit that Mr. King has brought a tear to my eye and a lump to my throat on more than one occasion in his books.
A mark of how well he brings his characters to life and gets us to believe in them, I suppose.

Welcome to the SKMB :encouragement:

I was more pissed than sad. Tough moment in book. She seemed so innocent helping to fight for her man's crusade. And she gets the short stick by dying.

Btw, Moderator you might want to put some spoiler alerts on this thread. This is a key revelation of the book.
Added spoiler note to thread title.

I cried when Sadie died. And I cried again when Jake was figuring things out at the end. Jakes is one of my favorite good guys. That book just blew me away. It was when I realized that King was not just a great author but a great genius. And he keeps surprising his readers all the time. He's one of the most well-rounded writers of all time. Just a wide breadth of books! Oh and another favorite book is On Writing. I think everyone who loves Stephen King should read that book.

Absolutely. I have learned a lot from Stephen King and I have much more to learn but On Writing is sitting right next to me as I work on the second in my Montana Wylde series. I cannot tell you how many times I have referred to that book. I will never be the writer Stephen King is but he inspires to keep trying. :)
