I don't have any profound revelations to expound on, I just liked this book. It was a good little ghost story.
Ithink it started slow but definitely picked up the pace i really enjoyed the ending.great bookSo I've always had this book in my book shelf but never got around to reading it because I had so many other SK books to catch up on. I hadn't heard much about the book or rave reviews, but I started 2 days ago and I could not put it down. I absolutely loved it, definitely one of my favorites! I'm mad it took me so long to read it. I can't stop thinking about the characters, loved them haha.
What did you guys think of it??
From the time I was in high school up through my early 30's, when he passed away, my Dad and I would cruise around in the car listening to Metallica and Pantera very loud. He absolutely loved both. He dug Nirvana a lot too. Needless to say, I totally believed that Ralph could like Pearl Jam lol.I liked Ralph, too. I don't have a favorite spot in my heart for the novel Insomnia, tho. I just couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to think that someone of Ralph's age would know and like songs by Pearl Jam, etc. Just didn't ring true to me.
And now i must eat my own words because...As audiobooks; i do not really care for Mr.King reading, sorry. He is the author, and obviously knows his characters and how he meant them to react in any given situation, but unfortunatly don't have the voice or talent, to do his own writing, books and characters justice.
I'm going to quote myself here

This (listening)time around i actually find mr.Kings reading of BoB quite good.
YES! Thank you! The music in Insomnia was wonky, both for Ralph and Ed. Not a huge thing, and I did like the book very much (Atropos is almost Mr. Flip/Space Cowboy level scary to me), but I also love music. If that is off, it yanks me right out of the story.I liked Ralph, too. I don't have a favorite spot in my heart for the novel Insomnia, tho. I just couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to think that someone of Ralph's age would know and like songs by Pearl Jam, etc. Just didn't ring true to me. Insomnia could've (and probably should've) been edited down a couple hundred pages. Just abit too long....
Hi, Christiane. Bunter's Bell was a bell that hung on a moosehead at Sara Laughs. They named the moosehead Bunter and I think the bell symbolized the times Mike and his wife had sex. I can't remember exactly.I finished reading it last night. I loved it, but somewhere along the way I had the feeling the story was not progressing, but it's just me. And can someone tell me what a bunter bell is? I read the strory in french, and many times ''la cloche de bunter'' was mentionned. I have no idea what in the world is that thing, even after searching on the web. It's a bell, but what kind of bell? Thanks for answering my question. And I haven't seen the movie yet.
Well thank you!!! I guess I lost track of the moose head at sometime. Now I understand.Hi, Christiane. Bunter's Bell was a bell that hung on a moosehead at Sara Laughs. They named the moosehead Bunter and I think the bell symbolized the times Mike and his wife had sex. I can't remember exactly.
...it was a slow slog for me, but I've been through it I think 4 times now and finally appreciate it as probably his most "literary" novel....I started Bag of Bones audiobook . I really struggled with this one so had to sit it down. A lot of comments on here speak pretty positive about it. So maybe I need to give it another chance. But it was just going so slow.
