Finished Lisey's Story. Not sure what to think. I was over halfway finished with it before I really started getting into it, for some reason it just wasn't clicking with me. But it held my interest enough to finish and now I'm left feeling profoundly sad. Which I guess is the point but damn I didn't realize how deeply it got its hooks into me.

As many of my old paperbacks I bought in the late 80's/early 90's have gone missing, I've decided to start collecting Steve's books in hardback and rereading them in publication order. I have Carrie on the desk beside me and I plan to start on it in a couple days.

Finally finished 11/22/63 ( started it a week into the the new year but have since had to read two books for class). I liked it quite a bit. I felt some of the stuff in Derry was a bit self indulgent but I never really had problems with the pacing. I enjoyed the story and as always King produced well rounded characters. I liked his time travel "rules" quite a bit, how time resists being changed and how time itself was largely the antagonist.

One quote in particular from this book is sure to stick withe me for a long time:
‎'For a moment everything was clear, and when that happens you see that the world is barely there at all. Don't we all secretly know this? It's a perfectly balanced mechanism of shouts and echoes pretending to be wheels and cogs, a dreamclock chiming beneath a mystery-glass we call life. Behind it? Below it and around it? Chaos, storms. Men with hammers, with knives, men with guns. Women who twist what they cannot dominate and belittle what they cannot understand. A universe of horror and loss surrounding a single lighted stage where mortals dance in defiance of the dark.'

Good stuff.

The Talisman 3, probably not too soon

Posted: February 9, 2012, 21:14:46
Section: Book The Talisman 3

The moderator of King’s official message board had the following answer to whether King and Straub has started to work on The Talisman 3.

Stephen and Peter haven't been able to coordinate schedules to begin working on the third book as they've each had other projects that needed their attention. I don't know if they have discussed plot development yet but even if they had, it would probably be too early to release any info.

Hopefully there will an announcement about Dr. Sleep soon. On a disconnected note, I finished rewatching Riding the Bullet, and I have to say, it is my favorite adaptation of King's material - outside of Salem's Lot and The Shining - that does not involve King in producing or directing capacity (that is an entirely different list.) Arquette is great in the film, and the actor they had for young Alan did an excellent job, as well. Plus, I love how soaked the film is in the '60's atmosphere and culture. On an even more disconnected note, I wish Warner Brothers would release the 2004 Salem's Lot miniseries on Bluray, and give it a decent transfer/upgrade. I'm not asking for a Taxi Driver restoration, but something that will pack an extra punch.

Anyone's reading the "Dark Tower" serie? I'm about to finish the first book and I think it's very good.

I actually did the same thing, but on my kindle. I started buying all of King's books in order. And damn how I forgotten how terrifying Salem's Lot really was. It still is the most terrifying vampire novel ever.

They are good books. What makes them even better, is if you read them then read his other books they fit into one larger story. For example a character in book 6 and 7 is relevant to the clown from "IT"

Enjoy!

I too thought the 2004 Salem's Lot mini-series remake was fantastic. Especially the scene with tibbits crawling through the airvent breaking his own bones...awesome.

Yes! I just finished it a few days ago. SO GOOD. That's how you do vampires.

Really looking forward to The Shining now - I started it once but didn't get very far into it.

King talks Dr. Sleep

Posted: February 22, 2012, 08:12:40
Section: Book Dr Sleep

Here is what King said about Dr. Sleep in Savannah:

King said the sequel, "Dr. Sleep," picks up three years after the end of "The Shining." It follows Danny Torrance, the little boy with the gift (?) of clairvoyance, who's now living in Tampa, Fla., with his mom Wendy. Predictably, since King is King, young Danny (he's now 8) sees something hideous in his new home -- and I'm not talking obnoxious Florida Gator fans. Instead, it appears the fire that supposedly destroyed the Overlook and all it contained didn't do a thorough job.

That's bad news for Danny. But it's great news for those creeped out by "The Shining."

The Dark Tower has given me a different outlook on King novels, even those not related to the Dark Tower. For example, after rereading the Shinning, I could almost imagine the Crimson King being behind the force in the hotel trying to get Danny.

I need to go reread the Shining now with that context. Thanks.

I just found out about "Dr. Sleep", and I'm definitely going to check that out. Has anyone here read "The Breathing Method"? It's the only story from Different Seasons that hasn't been made into a film, but I doubt it would translate very well.

Doctor Sleep to be released in 2013

Posted: February 28, 2012, 16:21:33
Section: Book Dr Sleep

According to a press release about King narrating Wind Through the Keyhole Doctor Sleep won’t be released until 2013. If that means Wind Through the Keyhole is the only King book we’ll get during 2012 remains to be seen.

The Wind Through the Keyhole audiobook will also offer an exclusive audio preview of King’s upcoming novel, Doctor Sleep, the eagerly-awaited sequel to his classic, The Shining, to be published in 2013. Stephen King will also read the excerpt from Doctor Sleep.


First pages of Dr. Sleep

Message from Steve - Doctor Sleep
Posted: March 2nd, 2012 11:43:56 am EST

Hey, you guys and gals: I've done public readings from next year's Shining sequel a couple of times now, but if you got the idea from any of the blog posts that the audio sample at the end of the forthcoming Wind Through the Keyhole CDs is just the five-minute snippet I read last month in Savannah...think again. It's the entire prologue of the book (called LOCKBOX). It's 25 manuscript pages and runs a little shy of half an hour when read aloud. If you're looking for a return to balls-to-the-wall, keep-the-lights-on horror, get ready. And don't say you weren't warned.
