    King has done it again! The last time I was this enthralled with one of his books was Finders Keepers. While I do read a lot, it is not often I find a book that I don't want to put down at all. In fact, the biggest selling point is that I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. D...

    YES! My first super favorite of 2018! REALLY good stuff here....BAFFLING stuff....CREEPY crawling chilling stuff.....and most of all....Stephen KING excellence in storytelling stuff! Just another murder - Just another mystery - Not by a long shot! At first, I thought, hmmmmm.....someth...

    I loved the first half of this book so much, I hardly knew what to do with myself. I just wanted to be reading every minute of the day. Don't get me wrong, the second half was good, it just didn't impress me quite as much. I'm not going to rehash the plot, because today, only one we...

    It's no secret that The Outsider was my most anticipated novel of 2018, right up there with Neverworld Wake, by Marisha Pessl, and Providence, by Caroline Kepnes. So did it live up to the hype and, furthermore, my expectations? You're damn skippy it did, and then some. This is not a...

    I?ve been reading Uncle Stevie for about 35 years now, and there?s been plenty of peaks and valleys in my fandom. This time out he found a whole new way to disappoint me. A young boy has been brutally murdered, and all the clues point directly at Terry Maitland. This is shocking...

    This book was awesome! There is one thing I always know when going into a Stephen King novel, I?m going to enjoy it immensely but do not even begin to ponder how dark or weird it will end up being. This one isn?t his weirdest or darkest but it was one of my favorites. I thoroughly ...

    Absolutely loved THE OUTSIDER by @StephenKing - Murder, baseball, and gut-wrenching suspense. This is classic King at his best. ...

    How does Stephen King do it? The guy turns 71 this September, and he?s still at the top of his game. This is the 16th book of his I?ve read, and it?s easily one of his best. Everything is so sharply done: plotting, pacing, characters, twists, the villain. The book is 560 pages...

    Agh, this one was hard. 65% of this book is some of King?s best, most original, and most assured writing in years. It?s when the novel switches track and truly delves into the nature of the antagonist that it begins to get a little cheesy and, overly familiar. I was excited when I ...

    Stephen King's still got it! (It's been quite a while though since I read a book of his, so this was fairly recent for me). It's a bit of a step away from his usual brand of horror which is almost oddly familiar and nostalgic, instead delving into heinous crimes and one poor guy caught...

    *no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later. I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror. A...

    If you?re a fan of the X-Files, meaning you can deal with story lines that can?t be fully explained by science, you will probably enjoy this book. I loved Mr. Mercedes, but part of the reason I liked that novel so much was because things were explained by old-fashioned detective wo...

    Here there be spoilers. I know this review is marked with a spoiler tag, but one can never be too careful. If you?ve yet to finish The Outsider, turn back now. Don?t say I didn?t warn you. Review: This novel should not have worked. At least, it should not have worked whe...

    This story has such a great ?hook?, it?s like the book version of ?Sweet Caroline?. I?m sure it?s been done before (hasn?t everything?), but the way King builds tension with evidence that Terry Maitland must have committed a horrifying crime, but also can?t have commi...

    3,5* - I really really love Kings writing style and his characters. He knows how to create the perfect atmosphere for every situation possible. But unfortunately the story itself fell flat for me. It was predictable and nothing new I guess? It just didn't overwhelm me. But it was still...

    This book is so creepy. Like, relentlessly creepy. And if you thought (like I did) that he couldn't top Brady from the Mr. Mercedes series...well, we both had no idea this was coming down the pike. On a related note, I was happy to see the connections to Mr. Mercedes (yes, I'm keepi...

    I find it hard to believe, now, that I avoided the lure of King?s books for so long. I?d seen a couple of film adaptations - Christine and The Shining - and though I?d enjoyed them they didn?t compel me to grab one of his novels off the shelf. I think it was a fear of finding m...

    This book was awesome! There is one thing I always know when going into a Stephen King novel, I?m going to enjoy it immensely but do not even begin to ponder how dark or weird it will end up being. This one isn?t his weirdest or darkest but it was one of my favorites. I thoroughly ...

    King has done it again! The last time I was this enthralled with one of his books was Finders Keepers. While I do read a lot, it is not often I find a book that I don't want to put down at all. In fact, the biggest selling point is that I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. D...

    Absolutely loved THE OUTSIDER by @StephenKing - Murder, baseball, and gut-wrenching suspense. This is classic King at his best. ...

    How does Stephen King do it? The guy turns 71 this September, and he?s still at the top of his game. This is the 16th book of his I?ve read, and it?s easily one of his best. Everything is so sharply done: plotting, pacing, characters, twists, the villain. The book is 560 pages...

    Agh, this one was hard. 65% of this book is some of King?s best, most original, and most assured writing in years. It?s when the novel switches track and truly delves into the nature of the antagonist that it begins to get a little cheesy and, overly familiar. I was excited when I ...

    I haven?t read Stephen King in about 20 years - not since he pissed me off with It, when he made me read a nasty child-orgy as a reward for making it through about 1000 pages. Earlier this month I read his On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft in the hopes of getting some writerly enligh...

    There is a few special moments that happen in life. One of them being one that gets me every single time. And even if I don't go ape over the book that is his new one at the time, I'll always pick up that next one. Because...? I'll admit that the first half of this part ...

    Stephen King's still got it! (It's been quite a while though since I read a book of his, so this was fairly recent for me). It's a bit of a step away from his usual brand of horror which is almost oddly familiar and nostalgic, instead delving into heinous crimes and one poor guy caught...

    *no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later. I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror. A...

    If you?re a fan of the X-Files, meaning you can deal with story lines that can?t be fully explained by science, you will probably enjoy this book. I loved Mr. Mercedes, but part of the reason I liked that novel so much was because things were explained by old-fashioned detective wo...

    Here there be spoilers. I know this review is marked with a spoiler tag, but one can never be too careful. If you?ve yet to finish The Outsider, turn back now. Don?t say I didn?t warn you. Review: This novel should not have worked. At least, it should not have worked whe...

    This story has such a great ?hook?, it?s like the book version of ?Sweet Caroline?. I?m sure it?s been done before (hasn?t everything?), but the way King builds tension with evidence that Terry Maitland must have committed a horrifying crime, but also can?t have commi...

    3,5* - I really really love Kings writing style and his characters. He knows how to create the perfect atmosphere for every situation possible. But unfortunately the story itself fell flat for me. It was predictable and nothing new I guess? It just didn't overwhelm me. But it was still...

    This book is so creepy. Like, relentlessly creepy. And if you thought (like I did) that he couldn't top Brady from the Mr. Mercedes series...well, we both had no idea this was coming down the pike. On a related note, I was happy to see the connections to Mr. Mercedes (yes, I'm keepi...

    I find it hard to believe, now, that I avoided the lure of King?s books for so long. I?d seen a couple of film adaptations - Christine and The Shining - and though I?d enjoyed them they didn?t compel me to grab one of his novels off the shelf. I think it was a fear of finding m...

    King has done it again! The last time I was this enthralled with one of his books was Finders Keepers. While I do read a lot, it is not often I find a book that I don't want to put down at all. In fact, the biggest selling point is that I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. D...

    I loved the first half of this book so much, I hardly knew what to do with myself. I just wanted to be reading every minute of the day. Don't get me wrong, the second half was good, it just didn't impress me quite as much. I'm not going to rehash the plot, because today, only one we...

    It's no secret that The Outsider was my most anticipated novel of 2018, right up there with Neverworld Wake, by Marisha Pessl, and Providence, by Caroline Kepnes. So did it live up to the hype and, furthermore, my expectations? You're damn skippy it did, and then some. This is not a...

    I?ve been reading Uncle Stevie for about 35 years now, and there?s been plenty of peaks and valleys in my fandom. This time out he found a whole new way to disappoint me. A young boy has been brutally murdered, and all the clues point directly at Terry Maitland. This is shocking...

    This book was awesome! There is one thing I always know when going into a Stephen King novel, I?m going to enjoy it immensely but do not even begin to ponder how dark or weird it will end up being. This one isn?t his weirdest or darkest but it was one of my favorites. I thoroughly ...

    Absolutely loved THE OUTSIDER by @StephenKing - Murder, baseball, and gut-wrenching suspense. This is classic King at his best. ...

    How does Stephen King do it? The guy turns 71 this September, and he?s still at the top of his game. This is the 16th book of his I?ve read, and it?s easily one of his best. Everything is so sharply done: plotting, pacing, characters, twists, the villain. The book is 560 pages...

    Agh, this one was hard. 65% of this book is some of King?s best, most original, and most assured writing in years. It?s when the novel switches track and truly delves into the nature of the antagonist that it begins to get a little cheesy and, overly familiar. I was excited when I ...

    I haven?t read Stephen King in about 20 years - not since he pissed me off with It, when he made me read a nasty child-orgy as a reward for making it through about 1000 pages. Earlier this month I read his On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft in the hopes of getting some writerly enligh...

    There is a few special moments that happen in life. One of them being one that gets me every single time. And even if I don't go ape over the book that is his new one at the time, I'll always pick up that next one. Because...? I'll admit that the first half of this part ...

    Stephen King's still got it! (It's been quite a while though since I read a book of his, so this was fairly recent for me). It's a bit of a step away from his usual brand of horror which is almost oddly familiar and nostalgic, instead delving into heinous crimes and one poor guy caught...

    *no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later. I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror. A...

    If you?re a fan of the X-Files, meaning you can deal with story lines that can?t be fully explained by science, you will probably enjoy this book. I loved Mr. Mercedes, but part of the reason I liked that novel so much was because things were explained by old-fashioned detective wo...

    Here there be spoilers. I know this review is marked with a spoiler tag, but one can never be too careful. If you?ve yet to finish The Outsider, turn back now. Don?t say I didn?t warn you. Review: This novel should not have worked. At least, it should not have worked whe...

    This story has such a great ?hook?, it?s like the book version of ?Sweet Caroline?. I?m sure it?s been done before (hasn?t everything?), but the way King builds tension with evidence that Terry Maitland must have committed a horrifying crime, but also can?t have commi...

    Full review now posted! What if you were accused of a crime that you didn?t commit? What if there were eye witnesses and DNA evidence and fingerprints all putting you at the scene? But what if you had an airtight alibi, and evidence to back it up? It?s a fascinating and disturbi...

    I find it hard to believe, now, that I avoided the lure of King?s books for so long. I?d seen a couple of film adaptations - Christine and The Shining - and though I?d enjoyed them they didn?t compel me to grab one of his novels off the shelf. I think it was a fear of finding m...

    Why is this copy got different cover from the Orange edition & says it's longer (larger print less lines on a page?) that's a puzzle this the American edition I got UK one I just don't see why the UK edition could not have this cover it's more creeper Do you hear Pennywise laugh...

    A boy is found brutally murdered and the evidence collected from the crime scene, along with eyewitness reports, identifies English teacher and little league coach Terry Maitland as the man responsible.  The problem for detectives?  Terry was out of town at a teachers conference with...

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news... But I was underwhelmed and a bit disappointed by this book. Really, the story is decent and moves quick... but the lack of creepiness was unfortunate, and that's what I was craving. Sorry for an unpopular opinion, friends! ...

    This book was awesome! There is one thing I always know when going into a Stephen King novel, I?m going to enjoy it immensely but do not even begin to ponder how dark or weird it will end up being. This one isn?t his weirdest or darkest but it was one of my favorites. I thoroughly ...

    Absolutely loved THE OUTSIDER by @StephenKing - Murder, baseball, and gut-wrenching suspense. This is classic King at his best. ...

    How does Stephen King do it? The guy turns 71 this September, and he?s still at the top of his game. This is the 16th book of his I?ve read, and it?s easily one of his best. Everything is so sharply done: plotting, pacing, characters, twists, the villain. The book is 560 pages...

    Agh, this one was hard. 65% of this book is some of King?s best, most original, and most assured writing in years. It?s when the novel switches track and truly delves into the nature of the antagonist that it begins to get a little cheesy and, overly familiar. I was excited when I ...

    I haven?t read Stephen King in about 20 years - not since he pissed me off with It, when he made me read a nasty child-orgy as a reward for making it through about 1000 pages. Earlier this month I read his On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft in the hopes of getting some writerly enligh...

    There is a few special moments that happen in life. One of them being one that gets me every single time. And even if I don't go ape over the book that is his new one at the time, I'll always pick up that next one. Because...? I'll admit that the first half of this part ...

    Stephen King's still got it! (It's been quite a while though since I read a book of his, so this was fairly recent for me). It's a bit of a step away from his usual brand of horror which is almost oddly familiar and nostalgic, instead delving into heinous crimes and one poor guy caught...

    *no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later. I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror. A...

    If you?re a fan of the X-Files, meaning you can deal with story lines that can?t be fully explained by science, you will probably enjoy this book. I loved Mr. Mercedes, but part of the reason I liked that novel so much was because things were explained by old-fashioned detective wo...

    Here there be spoilers. I know this review is marked with a spoiler tag, but one can never be too careful. If you?ve yet to finish The Outsider, turn back now. Don?t say I didn?t warn you. Review: This novel should not have worked. At least, it should not have worked whe...

    This story has such a great ?hook?, it?s like the book version of ?Sweet Caroline?. I?m sure it?s been done before (hasn?t everything?), but the way King builds tension with evidence that Terry Maitland must have committed a horrifying crime, but also can?t have commi...

    3,5* - I really really love Kings writing style and his characters. He knows how to create the perfect atmosphere for every situation possible. But unfortunately the story itself fell flat for me. It was predictable and nothing new I guess? It just didn't overwhelm me. But it was still...

    This book is so creepy. Like, relentlessly creepy. And if you thought (like I did) that he couldn't top Brady from the Mr. Mercedes series...well, we both had no idea this was coming down the pike. On a related note, I was happy to see the connections to Mr. Mercedes (yes, I'm keepi...

    King has done it again! The last time I was this enthralled with one of his books was Finders Keepers. While I do read a lot, it is not often I find a book that I don't want to put down at all. In fact, the biggest selling point is that I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. D...

    I loved the first half of this book so much, I hardly knew what to do with myself. I just wanted to be reading every minute of the day. Don't get me wrong, the second half was good, it just didn't impress me quite as much. I'm not going to rehash the plot, because today, only one we...

    It's no secret that The Outsider was my most anticipated novel of 2018, right up there with Neverworld Wake, by Marisha Pessl, and Providence, by Caroline Kepnes. So did it live up to the hype and, furthermore, my expectations? You're damn skippy it did, and then some. This is not a...

    I find it hard to believe, now, that I avoided the lure of King?s books for so long. I?d seen a couple of film adaptations - Christine and The Shining - and though I?d enjoyed them they didn?t compel me to grab one of his novels off the shelf. I think it was a fear of finding m...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ WARNING: SPOILER-ISH ?Doesn?t look like a monster, does he?? ?They rarely do.? First things first: I don?t know if I simply lucked out or if the library is officially terrified of me at this point a...

    A man with a ruint face and tattoos crawling up his arms - now you see him, now you don't.  A dirty white van, a flapping yellow bra strap, and frightening flashbacks of a rotten cantaloupe from childhood.  An open and shut case that most assuredly isn't.  Skin and bones, a skelet...

    This book was awesome! There is one thing I always know when going into a Stephen King novel, I?m going to enjoy it immensely but do not even begin to ponder how dark or weird it will end up being. This one isn?t his weirdest or darkest but it was one of my favorites. I thoroughly ...

    Absolutely loved THE OUTSIDER by @StephenKing - Murder, baseball, and gut-wrenching suspense. This is classic King at his best. ...

    How does Stephen King do it? The guy turns 71 this September, and he?s still at the top of his game. This is the 16th book of his I?ve read, and it?s easily one of his best. Everything is so sharply done: plotting, pacing, characters, twists, the villain. The book is 560 pages...

    Agh, this one was hard. 65% of this book is some of King?s best, most original, and most assured writing in years. It?s when the novel switches track and truly delves into the nature of the antagonist that it begins to get a little cheesy and, overly familiar. I was excited when I ...

    I haven?t read Stephen King in about 20 years - not since he pissed me off with It, when he made me read a nasty child-orgy as a reward for making it through about 1000 pages. Earlier this month I read his On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft in the hopes of getting some writerly enligh...

    There is a few special moments that happen in life. One of them being one that gets me every single time. And even if I don't go ape over the book that is his new one at the time, I'll always pick up that next one. Because...? I'll admit that the first half of this part ...

    Stephen King's still got it! (It's been quite a while though since I read a book of his, so this was fairly recent for me). It's a bit of a step away from his usual brand of horror which is almost oddly familiar and nostalgic, instead delving into heinous crimes and one poor guy caught...

    *no spoiler review* However, if you don't want to know anything about this book, please save this review for later. I have been waiting for a book like this from King for a long, long time. I'd say I've wanted a book like this since 11/22/63-- I loved that book but it wasn't horror. A...

    If you?re a fan of the X-Files, meaning you can deal with story lines that can?t be fully explained by science, you will probably enjoy this book. I loved Mr. Mercedes, but part of the reason I liked that novel so much was because things were explained by old-fashioned detective wo...

    Here there be spoilers. I know this review is marked with a spoiler tag, but one can never be too careful. If you?ve yet to finish The Outsider, turn back now. Don?t say I didn?t warn you. Review: This novel should not have worked. At least, it should not have worked whe...

    This story has such a great ?hook?, it?s like the book version of ?Sweet Caroline?. I?m sure it?s been done before (hasn?t everything?), but the way King builds tension with evidence that Terry Maitland must have committed a horrifying crime, but also can?t have commi...

    3,5* - I really really love Kings writing style and his characters. He knows how to create the perfect atmosphere for every situation possible. But unfortunately the story itself fell flat for me. It was predictable and nothing new I guess? It just didn't overwhelm me. But it was still...

    King has done it again! The last time I was this enthralled with one of his books was Finders Keepers. While I do read a lot, it is not often I find a book that I don't want to put down at all. In fact, the biggest selling point is that I am in no way, shape or form a morning person. D...

    The Outsider by Stephen King is a 2018 Scribner publication. Classic, quintessential King- An eleven -year old boy is found brutally murdered and strong evidence points to Little League coach Terry Maitland. Detective Ralph Anderson is particularly outraged and makes the fateful...

    YES! My first super favorite of 2018! REALLY good stuff here....BAFFLING stuff....CREEPY crawling chilling stuff.....and most of all....Stephen KING excellence in storytelling stuff! Just another murder - Just another mystery - Not by a long shot! At first, I thought, hmmmmm.....someth...

    I loved the first half of this book so much, I hardly knew what to do with myself. I just wanted to be reading every minute of the day. Don't get me wrong, the second half was good, it just didn't impress me quite as much. I'm not going to rehash the plot, because today, only one we...

    "Reality is thin ice, but most people skate on it their whole lives and never fall through until the very end." An eleven-year-old's body is found in a park following a brutal murder. Eyewitness accounts and fingerprint evidence point to the popular Little League coach and teacher, ...
