Scared of Stephen King
I worked on reading Insomnia for over a year before I just gave up. I didn't want to accept how awful the book was so I just kept pushing through, hating every minute. The novel went in a million directions (few of which were interesting) and just kept getting crazier (not in a good way). The characters weren't good enough to be likeable or bad enough to be hated. Maybe I would have liked it if I'd made it to the end...
Ill try again out of loyalty in the future, I'm sure.
This weekend, I started reading The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. So far its ok. (Yes, just ok.) Stepehen King loves description and he gets to write a lot of it with a young girl lost alone in the forest. Hopefully, I'm just still getting over the bad taste left in my mouth from Insomnia. I will keep updating as I make my way through.
I hope I'm not complaining about it a year from now.
