    I just started Gerald's Game for the first time. It's so different than anything I've read from King before. I guess it's closest to Misery, but a very different vibe. I'm digging it so far.

    LS is another one I liked that most didn't. The Outsider was pretty good for me except for the confrontation.

    that is one of bears' favorite books ever

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    I was about to ask the same thing.

    And I'm trying to imagine Franco doing the narration.

    No I haven't read it before. But I can tell you James does a great job at narrating

    oh!! I envy you then. I am very partial to this book: it was the first King I read in my life. Back in maybe 1985. In Russian (because I didn't know any English at that time yet). In the Russian main foreign literature magazine of that time, aptly called "Foreign Literature". It was published in installments. I had never read anything published in installments, because as an extremely fast reader I couldn't allow a month to elapse between every fifty pages. I had never read a magazine version ofj anything, not only because of the installments, but also because it was always a shortened version, and bears prefer, if anything, expanded versions of any texts. I had never heard about King. The odds were all against my ever coming across this particular piece. I loved every word of it. I couldn't wait to get the next issue of the magazine. I reread the whole thing a few times. And when I finally learned English, I made sure that TDZ be the first King book I read in English. It's - well, it is not even among my top 10 King books, he's written some that are a lot better; but it is my very own King book.

    That's very cool Jean. I'm glad you came across him. Pet Semetary was my first King and that one will always hold a special place in my heart as well.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying The Dead Zone so far. It has that old school King feel to it. I'm about halfway thru, so hopefully the second half is just as good as the first.

    Just finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

    As previously stated, this is an epistolary novel set in 1946 on a small island in the English Channel formerly occupied by German forces. Letters go back and forth between our central character, Juliet, who is an author seeking out something on which to write, and her professional contacts, and the residents of Guernsey, one of whom touches things off by writing a letter to Juliet after encountering a book that had previously belonged to her.

    The characters were unique without feeling "written" (see the Thunder Five for the wrong way to do this); the humor was funny without feeling like an attempt at comedy.

    TGLAPPPS was very much not my usual reading, but felt fresh and genuine, thoroughly cleansing my of the reading fatigue with which Dune recently burdened me.

    Some amusing quotes:
    I much prefer whining to counting my blessings.

    the Queen was very happy wearing her 1939 wardrobe, so why shouldnt I be?

    My aunt says she will never set foot in our house again, and Mother hasnt spoken to me since that day. I find it all very peaceful.

    Is there one of my elixirs youd like me to slip in his coffee? Just nod to me at Market and Ill know which one you mean.

    I just started Peter Straub's Ghost Story, with which many of you are familiar.

    I've read this at least twice, the most recent time being at least 10 years ago and possibly as long as 20 years ago; there's a lot I don't recall (making this a fun re-read).
