Not impressed. Like someone else here, I had a hard time getting through the first 50 pages or so. Something was missing, or maybe I should say, something was there that was better left out. I have read practically every Stephen King book, and was anxious to see how his son would do. The snap and humour of King Sr. was missing. The writing was not as cohesive. I gave it three stars because the storyline was basically good, but the characters were not filled out enough. I powered through, and the last 300 pages or so were better. I hate it when I am relieved to finish a book.
