First book, Sidewalk Oracles - I just started this one last night and only put it down because my eyes couldn't stay open anymore. It's funny, I have always been struck by "synchronicity" and feeling there was more to it.
I like Robert Moss's writing style too.
If you have ever been interested in Kairomancy, this is the book to read.
And of course the new King! He released a short story on his website the other day, Laurie, and I LOVED it, although I had to read it with one eye squinched shut because there as a dog in it LOL
So, after I finish blogging I am off to read -
Can't talk. Reading LOL
I will be honest, I hope this one isn't as "preaching to the choir," as Sleeping Beauties was. I just couldn't like that one. Mostly because I read to escape the news and that one was straight up horror from real life.
I know it's there, I am not trying to deny that, but I tend to read to escape from the uglies of the news and that book just felt like bathing in the news - so anyway, here's to more stories!
I finished the book today and I really loved it. BTW: SPOILERS..
So, first of all I LOVED that they brought Holly from Finders Keepers into the story. It was so nice to see an old friend and she still kicks ass.
Also, The Outsider? Could it be the same one as in the story Bag of Bones, also by Sai King? At the end of the book, in that last struggle Jo tells him the Outsider was let in (the tree/Sarah) and that the Outsider always returns.
Interesting - and I wonder if there will be any hint from King in the future, but I LOVES me the connections!
The book was part gruesome and part supernatural awesome.
*taps fingers for next book*
I just finished Joyland by Stephen King. Just wow. Perhaps known best as the horror Schlockmeister, King does more then just "horror." He takes your heart on a ride, then he manages to break it and leave you both laughing and crying.
Joyland reminds me a little of both Lisey's Story and Bag of Bones. They all have a gothicky horror feel but are based more on love, which can have horrors all of its own.
I really liked this one. It was a whodunnit that kind of took me by surprise at the end. Just under 300 pages, it's a quick read that will make you happy you took the time to do so.
This constant reader is very satisfied.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
