    I bought this hardcover several years ago, possibly over 20, and it just...sat there.

    Just finished Cabin at the End of the World. Loved it! I really didn't know much going in, and I'm glad I didn't. This one definitely surprised me at numerous times.

    Good luck with Dune. It has a lot of hard-core followers, and a lot of readers who don't get what the big deal is. I fall somewhere in the middle, but closer to the former camp. The five Frank-Herbert-penned sequels can be tough going, but make the first book better, in my opinion, and have some great world-building.

    (Stay away from the Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson Dune novels written long after Frank Herbert's death. They are TRASH).

    King recommended November Road, by Lou Berney. Now I did follow his advice before, and hated that particular title (forgot which one it was...), but I'll give this a go.
    First finishing The Outsider - which, to me, is one of the most disappointing Kings in years....

    The Fifth Season. No one here seemed to have read it and this is my favourite book of the last decade. Itís 500 pages and is part of Triology. I canít say enough good about this. The writer is the only author to receive the Hugo award 3 consecutive years. I cannot wait for the second one but will have to as Iím away for 10 days!!! I wish I had brought it with me. 10/10 and if you havenít read this... DO IT. Donít read up as I did when I couldnít find anything from you trusted readers and I ruined a HUGE spoiler so it would have been mind blowing if I didnít know. I never take this long to write a review so please read this book and Iím sure you will be JUST like me and look forward to the next one!!!! Cheers all!

    I thought I could get in one more book this year so started Stoker's Manuscript. Main character is a rare book dealer, expert, etc etc. And a few pages in is this: "So I dropped in on Doug with a gift, a first edition Thinner, by Stephen King before he wrote under his own name." Seriously?

    I was under the impression Carrie etc came out under SK's own name before Richard Bachman appeared. Or am I not reading that sentence right - to me it implies Richard Bachman was published before Stephen King...

    It's a wonderful book and one that I've reread numerous times.


    Edit: What's your first favorite King story?

    The Drawing of the Three. If I remember correctly, itís your favorite as well?

    Btw I love your avatar/profile picture! My mother in law made a duplicate of that bunny costume for my one year old this year. There are pictures I can hold over my sonís head for decades!

    Heck yeah, it is!
    Well, it's at least my favorite Dark Tower book and probably my favorite King book as well. It's weird for me to pick favorites and try to decide whether or not DT books go onto the same list. These are the things that keep me awake at night.

    It was okay at best. There's a really neat plot twist about halfway through, but overall, I didn't really get what the phenomenon was, what caused it, the motivation of the antagonist, and most importantly, I couldn't really connect with any of the characters. I mean, it's an entertaining book in a beach reading sort of way. Except you read it in winter time.

    I hear you. I felt the same way. I read it last winter during my winter horror read phase. I was really hoping for a scary cold book, but it ended up feeling like an episode of the Twilight Zone
