Not what one expects from King, but I have found that a lot of his later books are like that. Good read. ( )

A good addictive read that had me reading it in two mammoth sessions. I found the backstory slowed things down too much, though, and really didn't add a lot. 3.875/5 ( )

Oh wow, this was bad. King claims it was a trunk book. It should have stayed there. ( )

Not bad. Not as good as other Bachman books though. Something different, though, with the eerie Stephen King supernatural overtones there.

If you really need something to read, pick it up. But there are better Richard Bachman books ([book:The Regulators], [book:Thinner]) ( )

This was a long-lost find on the bookshelf that I read in one day by the pool on my honeymoon. It was like "Stealing Arizona" gone bad and without the humor. Good read. ( )
