[first lines]
Bob Anderson: [as narrator] I fled him down the nights and down the days. I fled him down the arches of the years. I fled him down the labyrinthine ways of my own mind. And in the mist of tears, I hid from him, and under running laughter.

Don't bother
3 October 2014 | by thsweetestbitchSee all my reviews

I was SO excited to see this adaptation after reading it in Full Dark, No Stars - boy, was I disappointed.

I even told my mother, who is and has been a massive Stephen King fan probably as long as I've been alive, not to bother, that it was a serious disappointment.

I also feel that it was dreadfully miscast. In the beginning of the book, Stephen King made sure we knew what a good man Bob is - didn't do that enough in the movie. Plus, I don't think Anthony LaPaglia makes a very good Bob.

Yeah, the movie definitely doesn't portray Bob as a nice guy, more like a smarmy used car salesman. Disappoint.

Shame, really.
