I'm reading it at the moment. I'm finding it very difficult for reasons I don't really want to go into.
If you don't mind my asking, when you say difficult do you mean emotionally difficult or difficul as in its boring to get through?
Emotionally difficult. Not boring or anything like that.

I've been a King fan for over 20 years. The first thing of his I read was Firestarter. I've read nearly every thing he's written, bar a few of the books he wrote in what I think of his "middle years" when I stopped enjoying his work. I'm thinking, Hearts in Atlantis; Rose Madder; Gerlad's Game - those works.

I've heard the rumour/myth that Tabitha King wrote under her husband's name, too. I have no idea how true it really is, all I know is that, for me, there were a sequence of novels I found so weak I didn't want to read them.

Has anyone read The Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill? His writing is very influenced by his father, but I enjoyed it a great deal, because, or despite that.
