    Weird book.Remind me to never visit Derry Maine This setting of a number of Stephen King s novels is again center stage in this 1994 book about not sleeping and going crazy because of it.I was drawn to this title as I have struggled off and on with insomnia most of my life I wonder how many readers have stayed up all night reading, I know I have I remember a haze of years when I averaged about 4 5 hours a sleep a

    This book is not for everyone For one its over 700 pages long Another reason is that it deals with what some people say is uncomfortable topics abortion, mental illness, domestic abuse and the afterlife and possible alternate worlds.Another reason why this book is unique and different from other books is that the hero is a regular joe who happens to be in his 70 s I loved this book It took my mind to a place where fe

    I HATED it Extremely long winded and convoluted Horrible, absolutely horrible Probably his most pointless story ever.This is when I knew Stephen King had lost his awesome writing powers and I can t really bring myself to read him again Bad enough I had to suffer through Black House, and then this He really should have quit while he ahead and still an icon in the writing world As for me, I d rather slit my own wrists than suffer thro
