I've enjoyed several of Stephen King's books including Carrie & Salem's Lot, but this one left me cold, in fact I didn't/couldn't even finish it. It's far too long, half the number of pages would be more than enough to cover the plot. The rambling dream sequences are simply a waste of paper. I won't be buying anymore Stephen King. If this book had been written by a new author, it's likely it wouldn't have got past first base!
