Im reading Finders Keepers by Stephen King.
I dont know whats wrong with him these days, he seems to be leaving the supernatural stuff to his son, This book is a sequel of sorts to Mr Mercedes, it is a little bit better than Mercedes but it could have been written by anyone really, it is not the type of book you would expect from Mr King, its just a basic cops and robbers yarn.
I didn't like Mr. Mercedes that much; kind of got the feeling he was trying to pander to a younger audience. Really some lame ideas there. Then again, I don't think "I'm so coked-up I think I'll write a whole book about a rabid dog" was a very good idea either...
I think he's always been hit-or-miss, and he's more "miss" when he ventures away from what established him. His books have always had a lot of psychological horror, though; it just seems like that's what he focuses on these days, to the detriment of of actual physical horror. "Revival" seemed like it was trying to grasp the old days but didn't quite get there.
I read "Holy Cow" by David Duchovny. Quite funny.
I'm debating "Knight's Shadow" by Sebastien de Castell ("Traitor's Blade" was great) and "Zero World" by Jason M. Hugh; I don't know if I should read them for pleasure or for review-writing purposes. They're each quite large and I don't know if I want to tackle them from a review standpoint because they would take too long.
