I thought this book written by Steven King was okay. It drawed me in the beginning and then towards the middle it got kind of boring but then towards the end it got interesting. The ending was a big shocker.

Interesting tale of gypsy curses and humble pie. if you view the 1996 film, you will see a cameo of King as the pharmacist, Dr. Bangor.

I was tired of hearing jokes and references in media about this and not understanding it so I figured I'd familiarize myself with the book. It was ok I guess. Was it scary? Nah, but then was it really meant to be? I know I'm not supposed to feel for the protagonist and I didn't really.. so it's a book where you hear a man whine about getting his comeuppances I guess.

It's good, but it got a little boring at times. I sort of just wanted to find out what happened at the end rather than reading about him blaming his wife for the accident.

After seeing the movie, I thought I'd read the book because King's works only very rarely make a successful transition. And for me his works fall into two categories - I like it or I really, really don't. This falls in to the latter category.
