  •  As a longtime King fan, I was surprised (10+ / 0-)

    that I'd never heard of the book until last month. I found a hardcover in mint condition for $2 at the local used book store, and couldn't believe my good fortune to find Stephen King at less than 2/10 of a cent per page!

    Of course, I've never read any of King's commentary about it either. Your comment inspires me to search online for what he has to say about it.

    Palinland...LOL! I've got to finish it, because the Palinites in "The Mill" have me so infuriated that I must find out what happens to them. I'm certainly hoping for them all to get their just desserts, King-style. I've got less than 400 pages to go!

    •  It's going to be made into a CBS TV series too (7+ / 0-)

      Which actual Mainers will pick apart and criticize for its geographical and sartorial inaccuracies ("Wait...if those State Troopahs are coming from Augusta, they'd be takin' Rte. 219, not I-95 to 26. And what is with that fancy leather motorcycle jacket, don't they wear windbreakahs? Plus that dude totally has a BOSTON haircut!") and absolutely cringe through every line delivered in a fake bad Maine accent.

      Sounds fun!
