King has returned to form with a new maturity. His writing is full of insight only age can give and he really seems to live vicariously through the protagonist. Sometimes I did also.
There are dry spells in the story, but not the rambling, winding ones from his middle period. They are more introspective and reflective of his stage as an author.
There is a darkness here that really becomes overshadowing as the story nears the conclusion. I felt this to be one of the bleakest King novels I could recall.
What a great read to start of the year!! Couldn't put this down... Even during the 'slow parts'.
This novel is certainly a slow burn, as far as storytelling goes. I've seen some people even complain on here about getting so fat in the book, and not being able to explain what it is about. I think it's worth the trip though. You can't understand the characters without learning their rich history first. King is called a master storyteller, and t
his story proves exactly why... Like I said, you start slow, but before you know it... You're coming to the end of the book and you haven't even noticed because you're so sucked in.
My one complaint... And this isn't spoiler; it is mentioned in the book's synopsis... is that King like to write the troubled youth character more times than he doesn't. Danny Torrence went through the same troubles (only with alcohol) last year in Doctor Sleep. Just seems overdone.
Still, didn't stop me from loving this book.
Recommend this to anyone!
