Thanks to my relative apathy about my Audible account, I always manage to build up a fair amount of credits. Last night, I decided to pick up Stephen King’s newest release. It’s massive — more than thirty hours — but I’m interested in the subject matter.
Let me tell you, you guys — it’s pretty great so far. I’m four chapters (or three and a half hours) in right now, but I was hooked pretty quickly. The main character (or, as you know if you’ve read him much, the Stephen King surrogate) is well-drawn, the plot is engaging… all around, pretty great.
Usually, I don’t rush to get into books on release day, Stephen King or not. But I’m trying to get through as much of this one as I can before 7:00 central time tomorrow night.
Then, I get to go hear the man himself lecture at Dealey Plaza.
Yep. Living in Dallas is pretty cool sometimes.
So, in keeping with today’s theme, what’s your favorite Stephen King story? Which one made the best movie? (Please don’t say “The Mangler,” or I’ll have to disown you.)
