Stick with this...and remember who wrote it!
14 January 2020 | by dsrowold-47133See all my reviews

When I read this book, I couldn't put it down. The series so far is the SAME WAY - the cast is excellent, the sound editing sets the scene and I am highly doubtful anyone guesses the ending. This is classic Stephen King...believable humans at their worst (and best). Tough to watch and impossible to look away. I hope people stick with the full story (and read the book too)!
