I don't mean to gloat or anything; it isn't nice
But I bought Mile 81 and I have read it - twice.
First time I just gobbled it as quickly as that car.
Second time I savored it. I've 2 complaints. They are:
Just as with most everything that Stephen's ever written
Characters all come to life and I, of course, am smitten
With the people he creates. They almost seem like friends.
Then, too soon (for me at least) the gosh darn story ends.
I don't think it matters though how long the story is.
Never could be long enough - not if the story's his.
Only other gripe I have? It isn't nice to tease.
Next book can't come soon enough. Get here November, please!
Just finished it and loved the story. Some might think it has similarities to earlier works (Buick 8 and Christine) but to me that's a good thing. It's like seeing an old friend when reading a new piece by SK. I'm curious, there was a preview in my Kindle edition of 11/22/63. I decided not to read it because I want to read the whole book new from start to finish. Anyone else feel the same way?
I loved the kids, too. One of my favorite parts was when the mom was thinking to herself that it is never a good idea to give kids sugar on a long car trip. Made me laugh out loud--been there, done that!
I also stopped at the preview for 11/22/63. I am already anxious enough, so decided not to make it worse by reading it, it would only make me more impatient!
