I just ordered this book. I wanted a Nook book, but apparently this one isn't available in that format so I got paperback. The friend that got me more interested in Stephen King says this book is his favorite, so I thought I'd read it after I finish Misery.

Has anyone read this? Does it really have close to 150 chapters?! How the heck is that possible when the book is only between 300 and 400 pages? What is each chapter only a few sentences long or something?

This is the first King that I let my tween read. I love this book. I bought it hardcover forever ago. It is my second favorite fable for all ages book following Clive Barker's Thief of Always.

My copy just arrived today. And I guess it does indeed have that many chapters. I don't think I've ever read a novel with that many chapters.

It really does, doesn't it.

It's getting interesting now. It seemed to take longer than usual for this book to grab me. Most of the time, King's books grab me in the first chapter. I cracked up when Thomas was spying on the King and saw him pick his nose and eat it. And also whizz on the fire and fart.

Don't forget, it's written for a younger audience.

Well, I'm a younger audience. Younger than the 50-100 year olds!

Finished it! I really liked it a lot. I honestly can't see myself NOT liking anything by him, really.

Lisey's Story should cure you of that. Failing that, Insomnia will do the trick.

Insomnia was a rock-solid book, loved every word of it.

Yeah, I'm also a huge fan of Insomnia so I told GS last night that he's just wrong.

I didn't watch the movie, because I know it's got absolutely 0% in common with the book.

Thanks, guys. I'll keep those books in mind. Right now I'm limiting myself to three SK books a year just because I have so many other books I've downloaded and not gotten around to reading. After what I have slotted for this year, I plan to go for the first three Dark Tower books next year. Also want to read The Bazaar Stories of Bad Dreams.

You can watch the movie in safety, it's not pretending to be based on the book. It's just a co-incidence with the title.

No dear, you are. Insomnia was excruciating.

Exactly! I've tried to read Lisey's Story 3 times and can't. It's awful.

I didn't mind Insomnia. It could've been shorter though.

Insomnia wasn't long enough - I didn't want it to end.

Reading Insomnia now. I'm 3/4 done with it. It's really good!
