I have always been a fan of King’s work, however this is definitely one of my favorites of his. He captures fear in its rawest form, and even in the most brutal and gory of scenes, is able to evoke more emotion from the reader than disgust.
This novel is perfect for horror fans and avid readers in general. Its suspenseful writing can appeal to any audience, and the praise it receives and its reception are definitely deserved. Without being unsettling to the point where the plot becomes lost, King manages to capture emotion, conflict, and suspense in one amazing book.
