It really is. I've tried giving it away to people I know would love it, and no one will try it. Easily one of my top 5.

Could you do me a favor? I'm sure you're like me and have 9 books going at once, but could you check out 'City of Thieves' by David Benioff? I've recommended that book to so many people and nobody...

I read half of 'In the Garden of Beasts' and then left it in a hotel by accident. Never finished it. Let me know what you think. I just read Larson's 'Dead Wake' about the Lusitania sinking and it...

It's been awhile, it's hard to remember details, but I remember it feeling glossed over, like a pg-13 version of some horrible circumstances. But its worth reading just for the story alone. Hard to...

I'll try Mystery Walk. I just got a package in the mail though. House of Leaves, The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan, and another book about the battle of Stalingrad. My fiance got...

I thought n0s4a2 was great. If I hadn't known, I would have swore I was reading one of his dad's better books.
And I'm about a quarter of the way through Swan Song and I'm struggling. Just not really...

I typically don't say much at all anymore. It's just not worth getting upset about. These calls will even out eventually.

Reading 'Dead Wake' by Erik Larson. About the sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine. I've never been much into non-fiction, but this guy does it so well you never notice.

Reading nos4a2 by joe hill. Really good so far. It feels like reading his dad's work 15 years ago.

I can't really help you a whole lot, but my fiance reads nothing but Harlan Coben and John Sandford's 'Prey' series. I've never read them, it's not my thing, but they seem to be similar. She doesn't...

I didn't realize he wrote A Simple Plan. I read that 10 years ago at least.

Reading another recommendation from here, The Ruins. 150 pages in, I'm liking this a lot more than The Troop. Good pick.

Needful Things was the first of his I ever read. I was 14. I should try it again now, see how I feel about it. I barely remember it.

Haha now I see why you didn't like my depth comment. You have Dreamcatcher at #2. Oh well. To each their own.

Okay. Since everyone seems upset about the 'depth' comment, I'll rephrase. It felt to me like cheap scares that King could write in his sleep. It had a good start, but it lost me fast. And The Troop...

This has probably been done at least once in this thread, but it's 152 pages long and I'm not checking.
The book thread got me thinking about how much King I've read and how I'd rank it all. Maybe...

King has more misses than hits to me. Especially his more recent stuff. I think dreamcatcher might have been my least favorite.

I don't know, to me it didn't seem to have much depth at all. It was dreamcatcher with kids instead of adults.

Finished The Troop. I'd give it a 3 out of 5. One of those simple, mindless fun books that doesn't really stick with you after.

I'm cheering for Sarah, but in all reality I think Leroy will win. And I'm okay with that.

After seeing it listed here so much lately, I picked up The Troop today for $3. Should be a pretty fast read, I'll let you know what I think in a day or two.
