I finished it last week. Simply brilliant and amazing. I just love Stephen King. My husband has never read a King book and I'm demanding that he reads this one. I just want to talk to him about it so I've loaded it on his Kindle in hopes that he starts soon.Krystal wrote:I am half way through Stephen King's 11/23/63 about a guy who goes back in time to try to keep kennedy from being shot. I am loving it, even though I usually hate time travel. King is a superb yarn spinner, and his memories of the late 50's and early 60's make the book worth reading in any case.
KMI, you will LOVE this book. No really.... LOVE it! I would give it a tie for 1st place for all time favorite Stephen King books. (The Stand is also #1).KMInfinity wrote:This sounds greeat. My fave King was Hearts in Atlantis so this sound great.
You will love it but please tell me you never saw the movie. The movie ruined the book and you should be a virgin reading the book. I've never been a fan of Stephen King movies/mini-series because they just don't do the books any justice.Dax wrote:I am finally (now) reading The Stand. Only 100 or so (and a week, but I'll have more reading time soon) pages into 1150, but at least I've gotten started...
I agree with you on this. The movie was just phenomenal.Dax wrote:I do love Darabont's Shawshank Redemption a bit more than the novella (Andy wins bigger - in the book, he doesn't keep all the money...).
