I'll have to try reading instead of listening to it. It's read by Stephen King himself who has a monotone voice and reads it all in one long run-on sentence. The audiobook is 17 hours long and I gave up 3 hours in.

This is a real chilling thriller! King is a great story teller. I wasn't able to put this down. King can be long-winded, but keep going because it is worth it. The end gets creepy! It's a real "haunting" piece of fiction, and definitely one of my favorite novels by Stephen King.

This book had a little bit of everything, and kept me intrigued the whole time I was reading it. I could barely put this book down!!

I don't think I was in the mood to be told a ghost story when I picked up this book. My fault. I was on a plane, and not really into the bizarre plot structures and dreamlike prose. I'm sure it is a great book, but I just wasn't enticed.

This is my #1 favorite book by SK!!! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! I've read it twice and recommend it to anyone who wants to read a weird story. Just love this story!! I think this is hands down one of SK's best books!!! Its slow in parts, but it makes up for it with all the stuff that happens!! I love this book and recommend it highly. I plan on reading it again, or perhaps listening to the audio sometime, after I read all the books on my 'to read list'. This book has it all-love, sadness, grief, greed, fear, everything, on top of strangeness. I would love to see a movie of this, the visual effects would be astounding, I'm guessing.

Some Stephen king novels are good, but this is not. It is too long and boring to hold this reviewer's interest. 0 of 10 stars
