    The best SK book since before Gerald's Game, but still not as good as The Stand.

    I've always like Irving's work and The Hotel New Hampshire is one of the better ones.

    The only thing worse than, and more disappointing than, this book were the two movies made from previous Brown books...

    Me: 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs.

    Very good book, but nothing like the television show. No real surprise there.

    Not as Epic as the stand, but the pages turn quicker I think.

    Right now? Posts on the USMB. Thought that would be obvious.

    Standing in line to read Alpha Rising as soon as my daughter and her fiance are through with it. Unknown author, but reviews are good.
