Read this after I saw the movie way back when so had to revisit. The movie is intense. The book equally so.

Wow, just Wow!

I didn't realize this was the follow up novel to The Shining which is one of my favorite King novels. In fact I had just finished re-reading The Shining when this came it at the library. I requested it just on the basis of King alone and didn't know what the subject was until I started it.

Gotta say it started slow and didn't make much sense until a certain point, but then I was hooked and found it hard to put down. A real well crafted tale!


Cheers,

RR

The Tale of William Quinn by Ozark Wizard. I’m only a few chapters in and it’s already shaping up to be a jolly fine read. Highly recommended 👍😊

This was a struggle to finish. I like a good fantasy but this became downright silly and started wandering. Almost gave up on it several times. Not of of King's best works.

To the extent that the last King novel sucked, this collection of short stories reminded me of how good King can be.

I whole heartedly agree. That book is intense. Although I haven’t finished it. Do plan on picking it back up. I did like the book so far.

I bought this book at a friends of the library sale a couple weeks ago. I gave a whole $.25 for it. I haven’t read it. But she said it was good. And she learned some stuff about the Mansons she didn’t know.

This is Bryson's latest release and like all his other tomes does not disappoint.

The subject matter is quite dense with highly technical medical terms and concepts but once again Bryson has succeeded in distilling it to a level that the novice can understand. And refreshingly, there is that totally unique sense of humor he brings to the table.

Highly recommended if you're a Bill Bryson fan.


Cheers,

RR

Saw the old B&W movie with Charles Laughton first and enjoyed that. However, I have to say that the book didn't live up to expectations.

And I had to turn back in a book from the library because of the due date. Another King novel entitled "The Stand" which I was engrossed with and finished about half of the 1000+ pages. But I have a second request for it in so will finish it in due course. So far it's been addictive.


Cheers,

RR

I've been a huge EJ fan from the Yellow Brick road days. Just saw the Rocketman movie and now have read his autobiography. Some of these huge talents certainly have led, uh..... interesting lives!

Finally finished this lengthy volume, as the first time around I had to return it to the library after about halfway. Put in another request for it and picked up where I left off and then binge read it to the end.

Pretty impressive tale although it seems a bit convoluted at first. Many players and individual stories going on and on that don't seem to intersect until a certain point. Yet this seems to be one of King's strong points in certain of his works. It takes careful reading and attention to detail to be able to put it all together. And I have a rather short attention span....

I freely admit that sometimes this becomes tedious for me and often I start to fade and lose focus. Sometimes I have to go back and start over from a previous chapter or two. But slow and steady wins the race they say.

In any case this is one of King's finest IMO. And it's apparently the complete and unabridged version from what was the original release, which I never read. All I can say is that the journey was well worth it!


Cheers,

RR

Just finished The Billion Dollar Spy. Great read, true account of running spies out of CIA's Moscow Station. Picked it up on a recommendation from a cigar rep who worked for the CIA and an entire chapter dedicated to his antics in the book. Highly recommended. Real eye opener.
