The sparrows are flying again

    I bought it when it came out. Similar to my reaction to Misery and Gerald's Game, I couldn't stop reading. I'm not sure why this book doesn't get more respect. Many fans complain about King's meandering subplots but this book was fairly stream lined and fast acting as a shot of tequila. This is one that I remember having nightmares about. Stark whispering in my ear: 'Welcome to Endsville, where all rail services terminate.' It really got into my psyche...not unlike Thad's struggle in the novel. Btw...great ending. This one leaves a lasting impression on the reader.

    I just finished the audiobook. Glad I finally picked this up. LOVE AUDIOBOOKS! Grover Gardner is an awesome reader! It's so amazing to hear all the little details you might skip over when reading. Also, it is the same when you read a book, you know you are getting to the end and it's almost like you are turning the pages in your head to hurry up to get finished. It was bloody and you can almost smell the rotting flesh and feel the sparrows. I was scared for those babies the whole time — and not just from Stark!

    There has been a weird bird phenomenon going on in Houston for a few months. This video is unreal.

    I also love those verbal "combination punches" SK uses.

    I think this was the first ST book that I read, quite a while ago. It would be good to see those sparrows flying again...

    just started my second read of this one. I had first read it when it had originally came out. Looking forward to revisiting.
