I do agree that it is too easy to see this one as
Reading about Mike Noonan's writing career has made me a little curious about V. C. Andrews.
I've 200+ pages in. Mike just listened to the tape. That was a nice, shivery moment to end a chapter on.
I haven't done my research on this one, since I didn't want to spoil any of the surprise. But the book feels much more like an old fashioned ghost story than your usual Stephen King book. The first person narrative, references to Mrs Danvers (I really need to read some Daphne du Maurier), the image of the shrouded fiend running out of the cabin, the back story (what I've gotten so far anyway) of Sara... I almost wonder if he wrote it as a challenge to himself.
Definitely feel like this is somewhat autobiographical in the sense that he's telling from the perspective of a professional writer, albeit a mid-lister, which frankly, King has never been. But I also don't think the details are quite exact although who am I to know? Like that Jo had to pin notes to his shirt when he was in the zone. Does T have to do that for Steve, who knows, but it's those details that make their relationship seem real and bring the heartbreak of Mike's situation home to the reader. At least this reader.
