This was my first taste of Mr. King's books ever. I was 11 and thought that in North American books children (especially small cute ones) and pets are always ALWAYS safe from harm. Boy, did I had a surprise coming.
Since then I've heard some people disliking the end of this book. Personally I feel it was the only proper ending - the only one possible. That hand on his shoulder, that voice with the dust in its mouth... Perfect! But what do you think?
