I wanted to read this book since it was made into a movie; but, I had a hard time getting into it. I stuck with it and in the end, was glad I did. Stephen King and I have a love/hate relationship; for the most part, I really enjoy his books but many times, I hate the endings. Oh sure, they're appropriate enough for the story, but sometimes I want a real ending. This was another one of those books. I may or may not watch the movie ... I haven't decided yet.
