I wonder how it's a sequel. I know Danny Torrance is in this new one but I don't remember a lot of psychic vampires in The Shining. At least make Danny go back to the hotel. Then find somebody as great as Kubrick to turn that one into a film.

Okay, writing a comment, leaving to pee, then coming back to hit post, makes you look even more insane.

Salem's Lot really did me in though. I woke up with nightmares from that book.

I've read a lot of John Saul and Dean Koontz although I couldn't get into Koontz's Odd Thomas books at all.

But The Shining movie was made absolutely spooky because Jack Nicholson was perfect in that movie as was Olive Oyl.
LOL Grandma -- Olive Oyl! You made me almost snort coffee out my nose and now everyone at work is wondering what is making me laugh and cough!

They move along great, normal King stuff, then they just abruptly end as if he couldn't figure out a good way to make it happen. I hope this is different.

I can't imagine any part of him giving into Twilight hooplah, especially considering how it has died down. If anyone can make psychic vampires great again, it'll be him. I look forward to reading this.

Oh and..the "hospice worker" is the kid from the movie, Danny.
I think that's why I'm taking my time with the series Kara -- I just don't want it to be over.

Has anyone read 11/22/63? Or Under the Dome? I really liked both of those ... but as I said, I'm a sucker. They could be considered the worst books of all time, but if it's Stephen King, I love it!

I did read both 11/22/63 and Under the Dome. I found 11/22/63 to be a little more interesting, as I felt like Under the Dome, while scary, felt a little pedestrian to me for a Stephen King novel. I guess I just expect more from him because of his history of hits.

I like the old school King novels, like Pet Cemetery, The Shining and Misery. His new stuff is good, but I sometimes feel like it's two different authors who are writing these new books - Pre-accident King and Post-accident King. Maybe that has something to do with his writing. Maybe not. I just know it's how I've felt about some of his more recent works.

Last King book I read was Full Moon, No Stars - And it was awful!! lol..I enjoyed the first story, but it just got so bland from there.

Heard 11/22/63 was great though. I think I own that? lol. Or Under The Dome...I gotta start reading again. lol....I've been holding out for 'THE 12' but that seems to be taking FOREVER!
