What do you think of the new Stephen King Book?
I just started reading Lisey's Story with my husband.

Shhhhh! I just started reading it too. I'm on page 155. There is a lot that Lisey is subpressing that we don't know yet, because it's written in first person, but the more we find out the "curiouser and curiouser" it gets. I thinks it's gonna be good!!!!! I got it for Christmas!

Here is a writer who has a thousand ways of naming a toilet, and whose work can thus be an acquired taste. But “Lisey’s Story” transcends the toidy-talk to plumb thoughts of love, mortality and madness — and to deliver them with gale-force emotion. When Mr. King writes in a coda to this blunt but stunning book that “much here is heartfelt, very little is clever,” he is telling the truth.
“Lisey’s Story” sounds like Mr. King’s most honest work — even more than “On Writing,” his candid, common-sense literary credo, or the first part of “Dreamcatcher,” which described a physical calamity very much like what he suffered (in 1999) after he was hit and nearly killed by a van. In “Lisey’s Story” he takes that near-death experience one step further and kills off Scott Landon, stellar novelist. Lisey’s public role as the great man’s wife is best summed up by a photo of Scott in which only half of Lisey’s loafer is visible on the side of the picture.Source(s): New York Times.
