“But writers INVITE ghosts, maybe; along with actors and artists, they are the only totally accepted mediums of our society.

A totally wild ride! Something I likely wouldn't have picked up on my own as I'd somehow missed this King novel. So glad I did as I enjoyed it much more than expected.

Short read and my first Stephen King book. I used to regard King as a pop-writer. I had a neighbor who couldn't get enough of him about 20 years ago. I just rolled my eyes at her. Now I'm her. LOL.
This book is a great gate-way drug to King. It was left in my apt. laundry room in the giveaway pil...

Before and after reading THE DARK HALF, I read some reviews of this book...as usual, some I liked, and some I didn't. I don't normally argue with someone about their thoughts on a novel- because everyone has a right to their own opinion, but I will say - I really dislike when people call Stephen...
