I'm about 80 pages into this, and love it. I've lived and worked at a beach side location and can picture many of the same locals as in the story. I also really like Kings departure from his usual setup and jumping forward and backwards in time. The setup of the sections or chapters is gone and it's just a story from A to B to C and on. Yet, his regular descriptions and details that come with his writing are still there. It reminds me of a simple time in my reading life. I'm looking forward to every page, but not for the usual King sci-fi, horror story monster to appear. But rather how will the next seemingly 'regular' event will effect the story. Hope everyone else is enjoying it as much.
