I thought it was quite good. Not his best ever, but SK is always good, for me anyway. I'd recommend it.
I finally finished it a couple of weeks ago. Really enjoyed it!
SK has such a distinctive flavor, but this book....not so much? Am I imagining things? It was pretty straight-forward, kind of like Joyland. Dr. Sleep kind of got into the weird rambling that King (IMO) does so well.....

Reading 'Revival' now. It started off strong, then was a little weak for awhile, but now its picking up steam again. I'm just under 100 pages. Given the fact that I normally read less than 10 pages per day, I guess that says something (it came out yesterday).

^ So, I have mixed feelings about this book. I'm about 3/4 of the way through, and if it was anyone but SK I probably would have given up by now. Some parts are good, but other parts are too slow, and some of it is just painful to read. Kind of depressing in a way.
I bought it last week but packed it, so it will be a few weeks before I get to read it... Hubby decided to help pack up the house, I was like what the fuck happened to my books, he was like...bout the same as happened to my dvd's...guess that is touché!
SaintChrisBeCool: It's so quiet in Aerosmith world these days. The pandemic sure would be easier if we could get a box set of unreleased material, or a Deuces Are Wild Vegas DVD, or something, anything, to pass the time.

tedz: I 'vote' for a box set of unreleased material, if there's enough material for a box.

SaintChrisBeCool: tedz, there's gotta be MORE than enough material. There's a couple of fans online (though not on this site, I don't think) who are absolutely obsessed with outtakes and have spent a lot of time digging up and cataloging all the songs by the band that...

SaintChrisBeCool: ...have never seen the light of day. There is a lot of material that never got released over the last 25-30 years. The little bits and snippets of stuff I've heard from the Nine Lives sessions especially were really good.
