4.0 out of 5 stars King's Multi-Dimensional Behavior, March 6, 2000
This review is from: Bag of Bones (Hardcover)
Bag of Bones, the story of a widowed author who returns to a place called Sarah Laughs in order to solve his writing block and the mystery surrounding his wife's death (which he has become obsessed about, leading to nightmares), is one that has been duplicated in similar fashion throghout the years. So why does King succeed where others have failed? Simply put... he did not attempt to sugar coat one aspect of this story, as it draws out, his underlying plots and themes are simply brutal.
Whether we are sympathizing with King's Mike Noonan as he scribbles his myseries down, or if we're racking our brains trying to establish links between different oddities, we are always feeling something. King's pedestal is based on his ability to convey emotion to the reader. He will not allow his name to be purely linked to one category, or to one emotion, in any book. The Shawshank Redemption was a prime example of King's dramatic and intellectual side, while Apt Pupil distinguished his dangerous logic. The Dark Tower series is a fantasy landmark, but The Tommyknockers is a sci-fi-ish thriller.
If there is another writer as versatile and provenly effective as King, I have yet to see him/her. I only wish other recent King novels could have garnished as good of a review from me, however several of them I simply refused to review (ethically speaking).
