    Brian. Thanks for the generous info. Glad to hear you like it. Several of SK's recent books have not really worked for me. Seems like he was trying too hard to please the 'high-brow' book critics. It's really odd that the more the critics like a particular book of his, that particular title more often than not just don't click with me. But to hear it from a horror fan and writer like you Brian, it's an opinion I can trust. Am really looking forward to this book now. And will be getting a trade edition as well because that cover imo is one of the better covers Scribner has afforded an SK title. Also like the Under The Dome US cover

    King avoids the usual traps of a sequel because he didn't just write the same story over again. (A lesser author would have already taken us back to the Overlook several more times in The Shining 2, The Shining 3, etc.)

    Dan Torrance *feels* like an adult who was once Danny Torrance. The personal demons that haunt him are very real -- King puts his first-hand knowledge of alcoholism to great use.

    There are so many great parts that could be spoiled if someone tells you too much before you dig in. In fact, I would strongly recommend everyone just put on blinders when it comes to the early reviews and go into the book fresh. Don't let anyone give away the moments that are so perfectly Stephen King that you want to read the book all over again as soon as you turn the last page.

          I don't suppose any of those lucky customers had a non-payment issue arise? I hate I missed out on that one, I got the other two Remarques offered but at the time this one was offered, I couldn't afford it

                I'm guessing the answer is No?
