1. Edward, I totally disagree with your reading of Lisey’s Story. It’s fantastic. There is a slower pace, and it’s not the King creepy factor, but he’s not writing Carrie, he’s writing Lisey’s Story, which is a much more literary novel.

    Here’s what I thought of the novel: advance review on SoMisguided.com

  2. “Much more literary” = inept attempt to write “important” novel. I should point out that I really wanted to like this book, just as I have liked a number of other King’s books. But this novel’s effort at a “slower pace” resulted in a plot about as swift and exciting as watching paint dry. Give me the creepy factor any day over this introspective nonsense.
