not cormiers best work, 8 Mar 2002
I read in the middle of the night the other day and thoguth that it was definatley not his best work.
I dont think that this novel got inside your head enough, not pyschologically, and made you think and i also didn't like how he ended the book i like it when you have to think about what might happen like in after the first death and i am the cheese. He didnt do this with this one and i think he did this because he thought that young readers today would be too lazy.. or sumthin like that.
I definatley dont reccomend this for those who have been reading cormiers work for a long time i think it just doesnt cut it, but if you have never read anything by him then you might like it because you wont be used to his style.. I think that in the middle of the night cormier has tried something new and i dont think he's succeeded.. but i'll leave it up to you to decide..
