Clueless Gent’s Review
Another great story from the master of great stories. It was just a tad bit slow in the beginning, but then it sped up. To give you an idea of how suspenseful the ending is, I was up until 3:30 this morning, straining to keep my eyes open, turning pages, just so I could see how it ended. I’m already looking forward to the second book in the trilogy!
This is actually classified as an autobiography, but it’s really so much more than that. Yes, we learn about Stephen King’s childhood, his family, his education, his catastrophic accident later in life, but throughout the book there is an entire education on what it takes to be a successful writer.
The “ambiance” of Death at Thorburn Hall – if a story can have ambiance – is important, but hard to explain. So, I’ll give an example. Have you ever heard a song (think It’s a Small, Small World), and then could not get the song out of your head? What does it say about a book when a reader starts talking to family and friends using the same accent as the dialogue in the story? Well, it’s like that!
