    No problem on this end that I'm aware of.

    All kidding aside... first, having written this stuff and having to answer to/satisfy many people above me, it's not easy. Second, the sell copy is geared mostly towards new readers; we Constant Readers will read just about anything by SK. (I should know, I read Revival. :sad:)

    Is The Outsider the start to another detective series, a la The Bill Hodges Trilogy, by any chance? Sure sounds like one.

    That's not something I can answer as that remains to be seen. Honestly not trying to be coy with my answer. :smile2:

    I can tell you that I'm 88 pages into it (breaking my rule of waiting for the ARC) and it hooked me right from the start. :smile2:

    No offense to Mr. King but after his statements about Revival being his return to hardcore horror, I'm a little skeptical. That's not a slam, I just think he's mellowed. I think this will be a great book in spite of that, though.

    You’re right. I read (most of) Sleeping Beauties. ;;D

    He said Doctor Sleep was going to be ‘balls-to-the-wall’ horror, too...

    We...well I'm old now and what constitutes scary? I loved that book & the way he left it open for your imagination to decide exactly what happened during the treatments. Was it secret electricity that showed the patient images of another realm or did the electricity stimulate the deepest, untouched part of the brain leaving us wondering, what could 100% brain power be capable of showing us?

    Not a horror book but thought provoking, nobody writes like this guy.

    It is a page turner and I liked it but I had different expectations and the only scary part was the climax, I thought. I agree with the points you made. Welcome!
