    Interesting, in the movie he himself didn't eat from it. Did he in the book? I haven't read the book but I saw the movie.

    Roland would have understood.

    ^^ I've never seen the movie. But yes Letti, in the book the very last line is that he sat down to eat a slice of the pie himself once he'd seen that both his wife & daughter had eaten some.

    Thanks. Much more logical!
    In the movie his family ate from it but he didn't BUT he offered some to his wife's lover who was passing by. I didn't feel it right... I felt he truly loved his child so I didn't understand his behaviour or reaction.
    I guess I should read this book.

    The book is definitely better (like most, if not all of his stories), but the book is very lean in details, in my opinion. I think a lot more could have been done with this story idea.
    There's a fine line between stupid and clever.

    You can't really dust for vomit.

    WTF? - his wife's pasing lover????
    You should read it, just because it's KING - but don't expect too much from it, it's lean as Odetta says. Actually more COULD have been done with the basic idea Odetta - I hadn't thought of it that way before.

    I just finished it and I'm on the fence about it. I thought the ending was fitting. He wanted to get revenge on his wife. He wanted to make her take responsibility for his curse and the incident and he ended up cursing his daughter, the only person who loved him throughout the whole ordeal. He became the old man who cursed him who wasn't really out for justice but revenge. That revenge almost cost him his daughter but he lifted the curse. Bill's desire cursed his daughter...
