3.0 out of 5 stars Jumping on the bandwagon?, 9 May 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Journals Of Eleanor Druse (Paperback)
I will be honest I purchased this as a fan of almost everything Stephen King and frankly, it made me angry. Not because it milks an established cash cow but because it was a brilliantly written book which was frankly tedious to read. The writer is obviously intelligent, possessed of a good vocabulary and sense off pace. Their writing is a bit flowery but engaging and the writer is worth so much more than this and they know it. It focuses on one character from the mini-series Kingdom Hospital and tells a tale that really didn't need telling. If you watched the series you already know the denoument and don't need to know anything in this book. If you haven't seen the mini-series then perhaps you will enjoy this more than I did and will find the progression from literature to screen more satisfying and fulfilling?

This was written under a pseudonym - whoever you are you are a great writer so don't prostitute your obvious skills and abilities by involving yourself with something as crass and popularist as this work. You are good, believe in yourself and write something original!

You realise this was written by Stephen King, right?
