I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy this book. I had all but given up on Stephen King, assuming that for the past decade or so he had simply sent to his publisher the curled up pages of manuscripts typed on a typewriter during his college days just to keep the King-machine going.
This isn't one of his great books, by any stretch, but it did remind me of the things he does so well: swoony romance (that's right - I said it. King does a damn good romance), intriguing sci-fi, and, best of all, highly developed characters.
Thank you for coming back to us, Mr. King.
