    Yes, the Nicolas Cage film is a remake. The original came out in 1974.

    Spoiler:
    Is Richard Farris the Man In Black? If he is, he acted very out of character in this story. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop but it never did. Maybe in a sequel?

    This could have been a drive in double bill in 1974 Because both are 1974 movies. (I posted this before that "SOMEBODY DID THERE HOMEWORK"

    I had several bother me moments - like at the coin show when the guy asked her if she was interested in "commemorative state quarters". Unless I missed something those came out starting in 1999.

    That is correct. They are also taking over the eBook edition at that time.

    Just read GBB and for the most part I enjoyed it. Fun story and a quick read. Although, in full candor I much preferred the first half. The second half seemed off pace, or rushed. The build up was really intriguing and seemed like King's writing voice and then shifted at some point. I'm not sure how both authors collaborated, but it felt like a noticeable difference. I suppose that is the risk of writing a book with multiple authors. With all that said, I enjoyed the story and concept and was happy to have read it. It did make me want to find some silver dollars.

    I agree with a lot of this. I liked the concept and the deceptively simplistic approach to telling the story. I'm actually intrigued enough to read another story about Gwendy. I can't decide if it felt too short or too long though. I feel it could have gone by way of short story very easily or it could have been fleshed out to novel length. The artwork and design CD did for it also helped a great deal.
