I was suppose to read Dolores Claiborne but in the end I couldn't do it. So I picked Blockade Billy, a novella by King, which combines two thing I don't read, Stephen King and sports.
There was something strange about him, something off, something that made folks nervous...but that something made people take to him too. p.13Going in I wasn't sure at first. Like I said I'm not usually up for Stephen King and I'm not a huge sports fan, but I enjoyed this novella. It was suspenseful waiting for the secret of Billy and even interesting to hear about the bad luck that followed him around. The ending was as disturbing as I had anticipated.
Even though I enjoyed this, I don't think I'll read any more Stephen King. I am just a huge fraidy-cat and I know that I won't sleep reading a lot of his books. Though, even saying that, I might have to give The Stand a try or maybe just try to graphic novels of that book first.

What a great nostalgic cover!ReplyDelete
@J.T. - Definitely! Thanks for telling me.ReplyDelete
@Juju - Yeah, nostalgic but sinister too.
I haven't read anything by Stephen King before (I get scared easily, haha!). I have a feeling I'd be up all night if I read too many of his books, too. But I really want to know what happened in the end... darn that suspense!ReplyDelete
@Linna - This one wasn't too scary, just suspenseful.ReplyDelete
