    Default The Outsider - discussion and spoilers

    I just read 120 pages in one go. I'm still not sure where all this is going, but I like it a lot more than the Hodges trilogy and especially Sleeping Beauties.

    About halfway in. Very good so far. So refreshing since Gwendy and Sleeping.

    Done. Upper middle tier King, probably placed somewhere between top 30 and 40.

    I'm listening to the audiobook. I'm about 1.5 hours in. Really liking it so far.

    Finished. A good summer read. Middling King novel. Certainly much better than Sleeping Beauties but that isn't saying much. The plot reminded me of a decent X-Files or Kolchak the Night Stalker episode. The Dark Half meets Bill Hodges. Ending fizzled.

    I liked it. I do think once the supernatural angle kicks in it loses steam but it was still an addictive read.
