I know I have a potential to vote all A's for nearly all of King works. Though I really try to be objective, I gave this one AAA.

All A's for me. This was a fantastically done book.

All A's. This is one of my top ten King stories. When I got to meet him the first time, this is the book I had to thank him for writing.

Nothing about this really captivated me like his other books. That's not to say it was a bad book, i guess its just because of the theme and the story, it didn't endear itself to me as some others have.

...I really try to be objective, I gave this one AAA.- FAIL -
lol, jk

I'd give the theme an A, if theme were a category here, but, yes, C~Dog, several things about the story were rather trite.

As for the ending... well, I'm guessing that it is the framework that should be considered as "the ending." Too bad; that really wasn't my favorite part.
