Two Great Books

A bit depressing, but very enjoyable read. This is the second O'Nan novel I've read (the other being Last Night at the Lobster, which resonated for different more personal reasons) and he seems like a very true-to-life type writer. Something about the dreariness of both novels however really makes me want to give the guy a big hug or put a huge, obnoxious smiley face on his doorstep. WELL DONE!

I can't really say anything about a Stephen King novel that hasn't already been said; I love him very much and think he's a great writer. This was a very wonderful experience. I was obsessed with it for a couple of days and really wanted to know how it turned out. Ending a bit "mysterious" for his novels but very good. Anyone who enjoys Blade Runner, 28 Days Later, The Terminator or The Matrix will most likely enjoy this too. WELL DONE!
