I can’t explain it.
Only the 3rd Stephen King book I’ve read, It was much like the other two. Far, far too lengthy.
… narrative bagginess … circuitous, repetitious book … a thousand sprawling pages …
All three King books I’ve read would have been much improved by being half the length.
The unnecessary and weird sex thing would be first to go. What’s with that?
I vow never to read King again. And that’s a shame because he’s such a good story teller.
