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 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. :)
