Duma Key: A Novel by Stephen King

I spent a good portion of this book with this awful feeling that the author was going to do something to mess it up. You know what I mean, when you really enjoy a book and then partway through it...BAM! The author does this equivalent of a tv series "jumping the shark" and totally ruins what was a great story. I pleased and happy to report that this was not the case with this book. I really loved it. Vintage Stephen King! I sort of have a love/hate thing going on with King. Loved so many of his books, couldn't stand others. (Gerald's Game springs to mind.)

Duma Key was a compelling read, one of those books that make you stay up way too late and put off daily chores, just so you can read. Time well spent!
