I like Stephen King and have been reading his books for several decades. This story bored me. It was as if he couldn't move the story forward. I felt like I kept reading the same thing over and over again. The story could have been condensed. It really wasn't a story that held any suspense or surprises, you knew exactly where it was going.
King’s storytelling is topnotch in this one. Great characters too.
Outside is a great read, bringing back the original writing and narrtion style of Mr. King. This kept me up all night giving me the thrills and spins as the horror unfolds to a redemption
Similar to the IT ending of killing a shape shifting alien... great read, disappointing ending.
Good story, but why do you have to slip in your political views? That is not why I read your books.
Either the evil in Stephen Kings’s books come from our own inner fears or they pop out of a portal from another dimension. This book needed more than a few portals to save it. He broke from his formula as this “evil” came from some Mexican folklore called el churro or something. I’d rather go eat some churros. Stephen King still has more good stuff than most authors can dream about but I’d recommend waiting for his next one, he’ll deliver eventually.
Great Book with very plain and boring ending that was predictable. It’s like King got tired of writing it and just closed it out to be done with it.
Loved the connection to bill Hodges
I’m a big Stephen King fan but I’m not a big fan of this book. There was some good moments but it kind of fell flat at the end. He could have gone so many routes with this story. The supernatural thing is a little boring now. Anyways, I’m still a big Stephen King fan.
Am and always will be a SK fan.
This book had me on the edge from the get go and then... Jeez it slowed to a crawl.
How many pages are necessary to dedicate to chicken dinners, Home Depot and Walmart???
Firs Stephen king book. Maybe my expectations were too high. Mediocre plot and a bit goofy with the Mexican myth of el churro
It’s StephenKing. Always entertaining reading
