This is the WORST Stephen King novel I have ever read. No zombies, no vampires, no demons, just a writer dealing with writer’s block. No doubt this is Stephen King’s worst nightmare, but it hardly makes for an interesting story for the general reader. There are some ghosts and haunting going on, but most of this story revolves around a child custody case, which is hardly the kind of high stakes conflict that we have come to expect from King. I didn’t think it was possible for a Stephen King novel to be boring, but this book was a 500 page snooze. Is the Thrillmaster losing his touch? Say it ain’t so; I’m willing to give him another try, but he had better not disappoint me again.
