Educated WAY beyond his intelligence.
Three days after starting this honey by King, I am sadly through the adventures of Doc and back into dull reality. The last ten percent of the book was read while standing up in the kitchen with the Kindle on the bar so false moves would not endanger the process.
Its that good. King as usual does not forget a detail from The Shining and intersects the old and new tales seamlessly. A last farewell from an earlier character was the perfect touch. King never wallows in sentimentality or plays the old cards too often. He spices the new work with a bit of the past but precisely and artfully. Reading King here is putting yourself in the hands of a master again. Its familiar, its expected and one is ever disappointed. The remarkable talent which makes this book float and soar through ones mind is one of our gifts for living at this time. Other problems and current events melt away as one volunteers to be part of the book and struggle until the end.
As one who has attended some meetings and read the Big Book there was even more for me to recognize and appreciate in this work.
King has empathy for folks with addictions but also knows that nothing but hard work, prayer and strength changes this situation. In addition to suggesting this book to a general readership, I also highly recommend it to our friends in AA and similar groups. If one is successful in this realm, the book is celebratory and if one needs more work, this book could help. Praise to King can never be overstated no matter what subject catches his fancy.
In terms of scare factor, some of the images from this book will be with me for a long while to come. A must for King fans, but I recommend it for any reader.
The last 175 pages or so make up for a lot of the filler but still, it just fell a little flat. I think people get affected when they see the name "Stephen King" Well even he makes some not so great titles every now and then.
Again, It was just ok, not terrible by any means but you kind of get the feeling that he was trying to make another "IT" with this one then realized he had nowhere near enough material and that it would be pointless to flesh out in disposable characters.
This is going to be made into a movie soon - I think they should reconsider.
