🔥🔥HOT DAYMN!! 🔥🔥 I love it when Stephen King packs a good punch at the beginning of his stories. It doesn’t always happen that way, but this is definitely going to be a new fave of mine!

It was much faster paced, compared to a lot of his other books and one that I highly recommend, whether you’re new to The King of horror or not. 👏👏👏

I can’t wait to dive into the show!

Yay! I’ve completed my transfiguration portion of my O.W.Ls exam. 5 more to go! 😬

“Murder might be its life’s work, but sorrow was its food. Sorrow and anger.”

Have you read this one? Or watched the show?

Which one is your favourite King novel?

An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories.

An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

  1. I really enjoyed The Outsider, although not quite as much as the trilogy that preceded it (that isn’t a bust on The Outsider; it’s just that I adore the Bill Hodges trilogy). I probably won’t watch the show, because I usually don’t enjoy the adaptions. However, if fans of the book sign off on it, I might give it a try.

    1. I love Jason Bateman, so I’m very excited to watch it! I’ve heard they stuck very closely to the book. I haven’t read Mr. Mercedes yet! But I’m going to add it to my list! 😀

    1. I actually didn’t know it had a supernatural element to it! I walked into this one blind. Which worked out well. 😜 I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for reading 💙
