Bag of Bones – Stephen King

If you couldn’t tell already, I love Stephen King books. Every time I think I’m going to read something by a different author, another Stephen King seems to land in my lap or catch my attention at the library. Bag of Bones was given to me by my dad, and so far is one of my absolute favorites. Then again, I have yet to read a King that I didn’t love.

This book started out a little slow, although I still couldn’t put it down. There’s that strange hook with Stephen King books that even though you know what your reading isn’t all THAT interesting, there’s something lurking around the corner and you just KNOW it. Plus of course Stephen King’s style of writing and his quirky humor keep you wanting to read more and find out what happens.
Bag of Bones is about a successful author who has just lost his wife, and is plagued by nightmares of their summer home on the lake. When he comes down with a nasty case of writers block, he retreats to the lakeside house where he uncovers a mystery set up by his deceased wife.

This is an EXCELLENT read. As with several King books, it’s written from the point of view of a character who is figuring out what’s going on right along with you. You have absolutely NO idea where the story is going right up until the very end.

HIGHLY recommended – you can pick up Bag of Bones at Amazon.

One thought on “Bag of Bones – Stephen King

  1. I love everything by Stephen King. He is supposed to be the ‘master of the horror.’ Why is it that I don’t dislike anything by him, but I hate movies such as the Saw series. I thought it might be the gore, but then I realized Stephen King has much gore in many parts of his stories/movies.
