Usually a book would keep you hooked for a long time, not this one. So many characters, in essays details and scenes, and not suspenseful at all!
Personally, I thought the deep dive into the main female character was overwrought, repetitive, and contrived. Like yeah, we get it. She’s quirky and lacks confidence. Move on. The story was decent, but somehow unsatisfying. Still, a so-so King book is better than most things you find in the airport newsstand!
Boring! What has happened to Mr. King’s imagination?
It isn’t a scary King book but it has all the right characters and the one evil person. It kept my interest throughout but you knew how it was going to end. Excellently written.

It takes almost 200 pages before the book gets going. Because it was Stephen King, I stuck it out. It's a great read after the first 200 pages.
Just Stephen King doing Stephen King stuff! Great book! Characterization is outstanding, but don't read if you chew your nails, you'll make them bleed. It's terror without being afraid, it's the not knowing what's going on but kind of peeking at it. It's like when you were a kid and asleep and dreamed that you heard steps and when you opened your eyes could not but did as soon as you closed them again... Yes, terror without knowing why!
