    LOL man, YOU are missing my point. The fact that I didn't read them it's irrelevant. The first book CAN work as a stand-alone story, that was the feeling many had before Steve announced the next books--that the story was told, the end. I'm just saying I like this way better, that all the characters had THAT closure, etc. etc.

    Of course, now I'm wrong, and they'll be back for more, have another closure. But it doesn't change the fact that I prefer just one book about Detective Hodges (nor it means I won't like the other books).

    What blunthead seems to be saying is that you can't possibly know yet whether you won't change your mind after reading the next two novels. You may feel at this moment that you prefer it as a standalone, but the next two may completely blow your mind. You may then feel that it wouldn't have worked if it had been left as a standalone book. You can't know, no-one can, if it will be better or not. In other words, an open mind is always best.

    Peace and love to all :biglove:
  7. I'm looking forward to a sequel (or a prequel) because I want to know why. Someone posted (and I can't find the post now :() that Mr Mercedes wasn't complete because only the who was discovered and not the why. I was happy with Mr Mercedes as a standalone book until I read their post lol
  8. I'm just now reading y'alls posts and this one cracked me up :rofl:

  10. I gots to agree with RichardX somewhat. I enjoyed Mr Mercedes but its SK's imagination I love. I read murder mysteries in between SK's imaginative fiction. I'm a big Carl Hiaasen fan. I'm afraid SK will stop writing imaginative fiction if he gets on a murder mystery jag :(

    He's got a free pass to the dark side, he ain't gonna stop going there and shining his light around the bad-gunky for us. Rest easy.

  12. I gotta be honest. As a published writer of fiction I owe a lot to King. I've read all his books including non-fiction and shorts, and while I always believed his greatest novel was "It" followed closely by "The Shining" I will go out on a limb and state that "Mr. Mercedes" is by far my favorite novel of his. I never thought he would recapture my interests like he did in the late 70's and 80's but after all these years he has created the ultimate psychopathic villain. One whom seems very real.

    Yes, you're right. I did say, "thanks for the spoiler." I didn't realize that was such a big deal. Nor did I realize I wasn't allowed to read other people's responses on a public site for fear of spoilers, especially when there's a tool to prevent that. I definitely started it in that case. Sorry, Flake!

    I wouldn't have much faith in me right now, Flake. I'm sorry, but I feel like we should be able to point out that people are posting spoilers so that they can kindly do the right thing and think about it for the sake of all others on the board in the future. I am beyond irritated right now. I've been on this board for a long, long time and have never had to deal with a reaction like this for something so incredibly ridiculous and I'm pissed. So, I'm sorry, Flake. I love you. I do. But this is beyond insane.
