If you're a fan of Stephen King, you'll appreciate the pacing, the well-developed characters, and the moments of emotional, gut-wrenching violence that King can write so deftly. But you will also appreciate that it isn't a straight-forward paranormal, monster vs. man horror story. It is a study of a badly damaged human, his loyalty, his desire to go through with a plan even if its doomed from the start. It's an emotional roller coaster of a story that I highly recommend.

In the foreward by Stephen King, he indicates this was not his greatest novel. I actually tend to disagree. Though the story was one of his shorter ones, I truly enjoyed it. the setting was well done. The main character is an endearing sort despite all his misgivings. I was grossed out in parts as I expect from the King of Horror, to my pleasure (he never disappoints there). As usually the story is set out so vividly it's nearly like watching it on screen.
I had plenty of laughs reading it. I am only sorry it took me so long to find this old treasure.
