It took me ages to get as far as I did but there came a point, roughly 300 pages in, when enough was enough (in fairness a few books I'd pre-ordered months before arrived, which rather prompted me giving it up). There's a very good story in here somewhere but I was more enjoying counting the Stephen King references than the actual tale, itself so heavily signposted at every turn that this was far from a page-turner. I have read almost all of Stephen King's stuff, most in my early twenties, so the author was up against it in a big way from page 1. The fact I'm now in my mid-forties probably didn't help a lot either.
Ultimately frustrating as, like I said, I think there's a good story in here.
Oh and one other thing, the font is very small throughout. Obviously dependent upon your age/strength of your eyes/power of your glasses, I'd advise getting this in Kindle rather than paperback. Well actually I wouldn't advise getting it at all...
