Or is it part of Edgar's power, that he drew her in the sand and she came to life as a sand girl? And/or, did Perse capture Ilsa and is she part of her crew now on the Persephone? Is that why Mary drowned her in the salt water? What happens to the crew and the ship why Perse is trapped in her fresh water 'grave'? None of that made much sense to me.

    Maybe so, but it's still pretty low on both the friend and the ex's parts. I wouldn't be able to overlook that like Edgar did. I'd probably let him kill himself and let her blame herself for it. What kind of person does that?

    As I am doing my annual re-listen to this fine Stephen King book, I came to post this exact same question and then find that I had already posted it last year. Problem is, no one answered. I'm really not clear on the Sand Ilsa thing. Anyone have any thoughts?

    I see now that I need to reread it some time soon.

    Def one of his better post 80s works, but yeah, it suffers from quite a few of his usual pitfalls. E.G. it goes off the rails towards the end, has too many endings (RotK style), too many distracting modern references, etc.

    The only thing I remember from that book is some character that kept saying muchacho.

    i'm further along page #347 and this book the further along i get doesn't feel like a King story but a John Saul story/book and that's not a bad thing cause John Saul is one of my favorite authors and has been since i was a teenager!

    since this is now Friday Morning? i finished this Wed. Night and i loved it my only complaint was that happened to Edgar's loved one. and though it had a good ending i didn't like how he pretty much ended up alone because it really just makes me think of my own damn life and it's fucking depressing.
