Hey, Stephen King fans are slippin' here! This is the third book I've searched for and it didn't show up in the search!

Anyhooie....I'm looking forward to reading this. Eventually. I have two more of his books to get thru before I do, including The Shining. I never read a sequel without reading the first and if I do that by accident, then I have to read the sequel again after I read the original.

I remember talking about it somewhere in here. I made the comment that I think it was co-written by his son Joe Hill because of the reference to Charlie Manx from NOS4A2.

I also read it before reading The Shining. I'm disappointed in myself for never reading that book. I've even visited the hotel.

I don't have this book yet. Is it a GOOD sequel to The Shining or is it pretty much a whole different thing on its own? I've heard it's good in general. I'm still backtracking and reading his older works before I read more of his newer stuff.

Finally finished The Shining and now I'm reading this. I already like it better than The Shining. Can't wait to see how this all plays out.

I'm currently reading this, and it took me a moment to realize that it was the sequel to the Shining. I'm at the part where the red head has realized that there is a super powerful child somewhere out there.

Finished this! Loved it! There is an excerpt from Mr. Mercedes at the end and I'm reading that now. Looks like an interesting read. Not sure when I'll get around to that book, though.

I actually own this book, but never got around to reading it. I am riding shotgun to Omaha tomorrow, so maybe I'll take it with me.

So I've finally started reading this book a week and a half ago, and I'm halfway through it. I really like these characters. Dan Torrance is way more likable than Jack Torrance. I do miss Wendy and Dick, but they made appearances, too, and this book isn't about them.
I don't know if I like it better than The Shining, but I would say that it's up there with some of his best work.

I didn't like the ending. It was too easy, and I didn't feel it when
The true knot was killed and Rose the Hat died.
