    I started to listen to this one this week. I am on disc 13 of 18. I am just unsure if I should just let this one go and move on or not to another book. I like it the story colorful but I feel like I am in quick sand and sinking fast. Got huge feeling of dread coming on that something big and bad and yucky may happen. All the hints are there...but I don't know if worth the wait. I hope so....I feel uneasy. I always finish..this is first I ever been unsure about.

    Of course it's going to be yucky in parts.....it's a SK novel after all. Kind of comes with the territory. It's also a completely fantastic novel.

    I would just because of redman's avatar and the way he said it.

    I finish the book. I felt uneasy about it to the very moment the ending came. It was not a bad book. Now that book over I thought about it. It was worth finishing. I enjoy the story has a whole. But it wont be one of the ones I like best.
