5.0 out of 5 stars Best King since Hearts in Atlantis, November 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 11/22/63: A Novel (Hardcover)
Cell and Cujo were page-turners that keep you guessing, creating a sense of danger and uncertainty that few authors can achieve. This book has that.
Salem's Lot and the whole Castle Rock cycle and It have extremely detailed, vivid settings that draw you in like you fell through the page. This book has that.
The Stand and It have the Big Face-Off between good and evil, which set them apart from books of equal quality but lesser themes. This book has that.
The Gunslinger series has the effect of causing you to question the sturdiness of reality, so thoroughly that you start to question your own. This book has that.
And Hearts in Atlantis is about more than its subjects. It's about America, what we've sold and how cheaply, and how much we would give to have it back. This book has that in spades.
I'm really happy to have Stephen King back in this kind of form, and I hope he lives another thirty prolific years. Thank you, Mr. King.

Just finished Hearts again for the fourth or fifth time - you could not have had a better review title to draw me in!

And I will be listening to it this weekend for about the fifth time. If you can, get hold of the William Hurt / Stephen King audio book -- Hurt draws out depths of emotion that are, at times, almost too much to bear.

As another poster here said, you used the right book title to draw me in. I have read Hearts in Atlantis easily about 7 or 8 times. Thanks for the heads up. I will definitely check this one out!
