I agree. It is the only King book I have tried to read, and I got about half way through it and it just stalled....hard. It seemed like there were multiple chapters in a row that discuss the establishment of new goverance in Boulder....snooze-fest...hilldweller said:I'm reading The Stand finally, and I don't think I'm going to finish it. King bores me with all his details and I don't like any of his characters. And this is supposed to be his masterpiece?
Is that the guy that did London Fields? That was an AWESOME book. I'd actually read it again. What did you think of the whole Yellow Dog book? Good enough to recommend?Tranplanner said:Martin Amis - Yellow Dog I like it, but it's a bit bizarre.
