When i first started writing about seven years ago it didnt take long to realize there was a lot about the process that i didn't know or comprehend. So I took a course from a writer who has also been an editor and a writing instructor, and she passed on several 'you can'ts'. I was delighted to see Mr King employ at least one of those quite successfully in this book - he addresses the reader directly at one point. I love how successfully he writes from first one point of view and then another in different stories. To me, Jamie Morton is a throwback to the nitty gritty characters of early King. Everyman, if you will.
