After the snooze-fest of Lisey's Story, the slightly disappointing Cell and the fairly pointless Blaze, I'm happy to say I'm loving S. King's latest - Duma Key! Really, really into it - although it does stray a little bit into Dorian Grey/Death Note territory. Anyone else read it? Rol?
Although I must say, the guy still needs an editor. Too much!
It's no classic - we'll never get another Misery or Stand, I don't think - but it has restored my faith a bit.
And I must say - yes, we all know the guy had a nasty car crash, but does he have to work elements of it into every of his books now? Duma Key's Edgar's recovery therapy is obviously all real.
In the meantime, I'm still enjoying seeing the new King covers that are coming out - take a look - although I think the Tommyknockers one totally spoils the ending!
