Half way through

I saw Stephen King on a talk show of some sort, talking about his new 'love story'. It sounded like he really liked what he wrote and was excited for the book to be out. I adore a love story and was happy to hear he had something that I might like. I've read some of his books, the less scary ones and of course, I've read 'On Writing', which is great.

Well, Lisey's Story is not exactly what I expected. There's love, but I wouldn't really call it a love story. And IT'S SCARY! And a tad weird. But I think I like it. I'm pretty sure I like it. He's got a way with words. It made me stay up late last night anyway.

I do think there has been a little misrepresentation about the nature of this story. I think he just wanted to get the chicks to buy it.

Have you read it yet? Are you going to? Let me know what you think.

Perhaps the shovel should have been a clue. ;-)

I thought it was going to be Secret Garden-y! It was a pretty shovel!
