“Some guys-- a lot of guys---don't believe what they are seeing, especially if it gets in the way of what they eat or drink or think or believe. Me, I don't believe in God. But if I saw him, I would. I wouldn't just go around saying 'Jesus, that was a great special effect.' The definition of an a...

Loved it, it's every bit as good as I remembered and more. One of my favourites of all time and one of the best / creepiest audiobooks.
Highly, thoroughly and totally recommended.

The premise really prompted me to read this novel. Aside from the fact that King wrote this, the premise really made me curious as to what the novel was all about. It was about a man who got cursed, and now he's losing weight everyday, and he fears that it will come to a point where he'll turn in...

Overacted, terribly-paced, full of dumb effects and the worst “fat suit” I’ve ever seen. But, for some reason, I can't help but lov...

This was my first Stephen King novel. I thought that it was good enough but not like great or anything.
I had two main problems with it. The first problem was with the pacing of the novel. The first half was good but when I reached the halfway point, I was confused because I felt like...

I have been obsessed with Stephen King's work for about seven years, from the first moment I checked out "Carrie" from my high school's library. "Thinner" certainly did not disappoint! The stellar writing and the character's complexities brought me back to that feeling I got when I first picked u...

Buen libro. Su idea es muy interesante: una persona obesa que va perdiendo peso por un maleficio hecho por una gitana.
Empieza bastante lento; al menos a mí no me enganchó desde la primera página. Tengo que decir que cuando lo empecé quería dejarlo. Y lo dejé. Sin embargo, en el segundo intento l...
