Benrangel av Stephen King (1998)

  1. 40
    Magiker och glas av Stephen King (beckylynn)
    beckylynn: It's not related to the Dark Tower Series, but I think it's kind of written in the same fashion as Wizard and Glass.......and little bit of a romance theme if you will.
  2. 31
    Liseys berättelse av Stephen King (sturlington)
    sturlington: Very similar themes.
  3. 10
    Hay alguien ahi: El chico que no miraba a los ojos av Jorge Magano (nosoyretro)
  4. 33
    Gerald's Game av Stephen King (beckylynn)
    beckylynn: Not exactly a ghost story like Bag of Bones, but thrilling to the end. Starts off fast (however does have sexual content).

Where to start with this one... Like all of SK's books (it seems like) the story started in a seemingly different direction than the end of the book. I really enjoyed reading it for the most part. Like i've said before it seems like the beginnings are very interesting, middles have a ton of details and then the endings kind of lack something for me in his books - this was no exception.

Main characters are Mike Noonan and Kyra Devore (at least the ones who survive) who may be relevant in the future. Book deals mainly with the haunting of his house (Sarah Laughs) as well as the death of his wife, his encounters with Madde Devore (mother of Kyra) and dealing with Maddie's father in law who is the crazy old man seeking to take Kyra away from Maddie.

It's about half ghost story and half about the court case and then another half about Sarah Tidwell and what happened to her back in the 30's which is what's causing all of the spooky things going on at Mike's house. I thought the book was captivating - much more so than the last book i read The Regulators. Much easier to care about the story and hoping that it progressed.

It does connect with Ralph Roberts (from Insomnia) quickly as this is another book which is partially based in Derry Maine. From my notes it says that King says this belongs in the expanded dark tower world and has similar themes with the rest of the series - which is something I agree with. ( )

DNF - good hook, but boring and annoying main character, and no interesting conflicts. 200 pages out of 700 and I was still wondering what it was all about

This was not one of my favorite Stephen King books. I was not excited about picking it up, and was very easy for me to put it down. The characters connected with me, but in not a good way. I didn't like anyone. That is unusual as Stephen King characters, especially the kids, can be very likeable. Oh well, I will read another Stephen King someday.

The story does have jump-out-at-you parts but not very memorable to me. The story of a widower moving to a lonely place (what else do you expect - Ghosts. But the Nastiness of Max is epic. It also describes the human cowardice in a way that I have never read about before. The way that Max uses his money to make the people do things and the way both rich guys use their egos to try and crush each other. The humanity in this novel is GREAT. ( )

One of the best king's books I have read. Blends supernatural, suspense, and real-world pieces very vividly. King's books never fit one category like horror, mystery, or romance. They are the nice blend of different pieces and that blends make it reading them great fun. ( )

Violence, natural and supernatural, ensues as past and present mix, culminating in a torrent of climaxes that bind and illuminate the novel's many mysteries. From his mint-fresh etching of spooky rural Maine to his masterful pacing and deft handling of numerous themes, particularly of the fragility of our constructs about reality and of love's ability to mend rifts in those constructs, this is one of King's most accomplished novels.

From Kirkus Reviews
Leaving Viking for the storied literary patina of Scribner, current or not, King seemingly strives on the page for a less vulgar gloss. And he eases from horror into romantic suspense, while adding dollops of the supernatural. The probable model: structural echoes of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca do sound forth, although King never writes one paragraph herein to match du Maurier's opening moonscapes of Manderley. What comes through nevertheless is a strong pull to upgrade his style and storytelling in this his 50th year. Yes, he actually does write better if with less energy and power than in Desperation (1996). In fact, attacking the race problem in lily-white Maine, he even assumes an almost Dreiserian seriousness in his final paragraphs. Well, the story: romantic-suspense novelist Michael Noonan, who summers in Castle Rock on Dark Score Lake, falls into a four-year writer's block when his wife Johanna dies of a brain blowout. Now 40 and childless, Mike has salted away four extra novel manuscripts in his safe-deposit box, one of them 11 years old (shades of Richard Bachman!), and keeps up a pretense of productivity by publishing a ``new'' novel each year. Meanwhile, he finds himself falling for Mattie Devore, a widowed mother half his age. Mattie's late husband is the son of still-thriving half-billionaire computer king Max Devore, 85 years old and monstrous, who plans to gain possession of Mattie's three-year-old daughter, the banally drawn Kyra. Mike's first big question: Did Johanna cuckold him during his long hours writing? If so, will her character reverse our understanding of her, as does Rebecca de Winter's? And how can he help Mattie fight off Max and keep Kyra? The supernatural elements, largely reserved for the interracial climax, are Standard King but fairly mild.

Yes, Bartleby, stay there behind your screen, thought I; I shall persecute you no more you are harmless and noiseless as any of these old chairs; in short, I never feel so private as when I know you are here.

On a very hot day in August of 1994, my wife told me she was going down to Derry Rite Aid to pick up a refill on her sinus medicine prescription -- this is the stuff you can buy over the counter these days, I believe.
