I'm reading this now and I'm also about 60% in. This is one of the longer books I was putting off because I wasn't super interested in the concept on paper. I'm liking it way more than I thought, it's a great story.I'm about 60% of the way through 11/22/63. What an interesting book! I'm really glad I got back into it. I'm super interested into where this story is going. (And I swear if someone develops psychic powers or something right near the end, I'm launching King into the sun.)
i think the only spoiler is that a character from that trilogy is in The Outsider. I would imagine that they don’t reference it in the HBO series for the sake of simplicity.
The only reason I could see them mentioning it is they own the rights to Mr Mercedes but they canceled that show I think so I doubt they mention it.
It's not really canceled yet, it could totally live on on HBO Max which AT&T owns and who owned the Audience network it originally aired on.
Yeah, it really is. I can't wait to see how it all works out in the end.
The book does spoil the end of the trilogy but yeah it's unlikely they would mention it in the show.
Me too, it felt like an early King book in plot, atmosphere, themes, even book length that would have fit in well with Carrie, Salem’s Lot, Dead Zone. However it also has everything he has learned in the decades of writing applied to it in a way that young King couldn’t have written that, at least not as effectively as he did and it’s one of the few modern classic Lovecraftian tales that actually gave me chills.
I follow the thedarktower.org forums. The people there are really into collecting. I had to read a lot about what’s out there and what good secondhand prices are because there’s a ton of stuff. skcollector.com is a good resource. There’s usually small print runs. And say the run is numbered 1-1200. A few publishers let buyers have first refusal on their same number if they’ve bought another book from them. Which makes it pretty frustrating when a new book goes on sale and it’s snatched up by the same 1,200 people again
That sucks, on paper a series mostly based on WaG is pretty promising. And it sounds like there was already a ton of work put into it. Hopefully Glen Mazzara can get the pilot looked at elsewhere.Amazon passed on the dark tower pilot :(
Have to admit that I'm a little jealous. I'm still waiting for my copy to ship. Looks gorgeous.Couple pics of that Revival:
It really is up there for me. There's structural & thematic similarities to Dead Zone (his other works too) but those two make good back to back reads. Excited to read the Josh Boone introduction in this (he's directing a movie adaptation) and the Bev Vincent essay.
80% through 11/22/63 now and it's still great. There was a little hiccup I didn't love --but I get it, it adds some tension. it's back on track now and I'll probably blast through the rest tonight. I only listened to a couple hours of the audiobook version but that's really good too.where Jake has amnesia after getting beat up
Mine was from Camelot Books. It sounds like the other sellers (Cemetery Dance at least) were a little behind and shipping out other stuff before they got to it.
