My bookies

I've liked and love a lot of books. And these are some of them.

The Stand

The Stand - Stephen King I tried, I tried to read this one, but just couldn't do it. Could be I picked up the expanded restored edition, that drove me away. This book is so long, the writing so long winded to seem stream of consciousness, and not in a good way.

There are 50 page digressions where Stephen King digs into a character's backstory, that by the time you return to the main story arc I couldn't remember where I was.

The basic scenario is great, and if Mr. King could edit out all the digressions it'd make for a much better read!
