I wonder if I'm the only one?
I have only been reading Stephen King since last summer (before that I only knew him through the movies and a few poor German translations of several 1970/80s novels. Those translators should be hung or quartered or both, but I digress). So I'm trying to work my way through his work . I usually manage one book a week (two if they're short ones like Misery or Salem's Lot), so, so far, I haven't had time for re-reads. I am almost halfway through Lisey's Story and I already KNOW that as soon as I've finished it, I'll start right over!
I am totally enamored with Scott Landon. But that's only part of it. I know some people don't like the made-up words, but I'm completely fascinated by them. Funny thing is, after the first 50 pages, I was ready to put the book aside and I announced to my family that this would probably be the first SK novel that I would not finish. Boy was I WRONG. 50 pages later, it had gripped me like no other before. (But I think I may have said that about one or two other books before as well.)
Boo'ya moon - I just love the sound of that. The most beautiful words ever I think. I usually don't take things like that personally (why would I...lol...) but it saddens me that this novel received so much criticism and so little love...
