Re: Pierre's Book Corner
The denouements of Kinger's books can sometimes disappoint. Probably cos he's spent about 800 pages building up to it!
Just finished his Mr Mercedes trilogy which were not bad. More mainstream thrillers than any mad horror stuff.
Read John Connolly's A Song Of Shadows.....easy read and very good.
Going to turn to my old friend JM Coetzee next for the Schooldays of Jesus...which is a follow on from The Childhood Of Jesus which I enjoyed. About some new/post apocalyptic world (Hispanic) where kids are sent to an unknown country to start over.
Yes, it sounds like a right hoot.
Have you read King's Revival Phil? Your basic SK book for this century, then at the end he bites you and bites you and bites you. A year later I still sometimes think of the ending and feel unhinged. Lovecraftian horror has always had that effect on me.
Just got the latest Rebus in the mail, but since I'm halfway through the reread I'll save that one until the end.
