A book that I found hard to put down,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bag of Bones (Paperback)
I HAVEN'T READ A STEPHEN KING NOVEL FOR A WHILE, MAINLY BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE'D LOST HIS TOUCH AND THE BOOKS BECAME TOO HARD TO BELIEVE OR BECOME INVOLVED IN. BAG OF BONES IS DIFFERENT. FROM THE FIRST PAGE, KING MADE HIS MAIN CHARACTER TOTALLY BELIEVABLE AND HIS PAIN AND INTENSE FEELINGS TOWARDS HIS WIFE AND MATTIE DEVORE WERE EXTREMELY WELL OBSERVED. THE CHARACTER OF MAX DEVORE AND THE REVELATIONS ABOUT THE PAST WERE PURE EVIL AND ALTHOUGH NOT AS TERRIFYING AS "IT", GAVE ME NIGHTMARES. FOLLOWING THIS I'LL CERTAINLY BE BUYING THE NEXT STEPHEN KING AND HOPING IT COMES UP TO THIS STANDARD.
