Underwhelmed. I guess I built this story up and expected more lol. I just felt let down when it was over. I also didn't love the way he wrote his female characters.  I'm glad that I read it, but I don't know that I would recommend it to anyone.

King really shows off his world-building skills and hisbability to craft engaging characters. But god damn, it’s such a long book. I had to tackle it in audiobook form because I simply knew the physical book wouldn’t keep my attention the whole time.
