How to review a book of critique? Very difficult given all of us are just giving our opinions.

Some of the writers I could get behind a number of their thoughts and ideas; while others were really stretching their imaginations to find hidden meanings.

Most books can have deeper themes that some people will see and others just don't; but, in this case, there were a number of ideas about some of his stories that never entered my mind while reading Stephen King's books. And, I believe these critics saw what they wanted to see. They were reading tea leaves; I was reading the stories.

Interesting book. ( )
