    i'm having trouble understanding the full story (as usual for me in books and movies), but i think it's pretty sick that King gets to make money utilizing people's suffering through sick fantasies. but it's fun!

    the cover is cool too

    King jumped the shark long ago.
    Besides 11/22/63...his Top Ten best selling books are all decades old.
    He did his best work 30 - 40 years ago.

    King hasn't written a decent book since he was hit by that van. He has a new career as a H'wood producer and the series "Mr. Mercedies proves that he has what it takes in that arena.

    Like all authors with large volumes of books, some are A1 some C- depends on your loyalty to that author.
