Bu hikayedeki çatışma, ana karakterin ve kardeşinin beklenmedik bir şekilde geldikleri bir çanta dolusu parayla ne yapacaklarıdır. Sorun şu ki, para çantası sayfa 50'ye kadar görünmüyor. Bundan önce hikayenin çoğu ana karakterin azizlere olan takıntısıyla ilgili. Çanta ortaya çıktıktan sonra bile hikaye tekrar azizlere geri döner. Dayanamadım. Yazara "konuya gelmek" diye bağırmak gibi hissettim. Bence, bu kitapla artık vakit geçirmek için "okumak için" rafımda çok fazla şey var.
Not a great book (and certainly not one of King's best), but it was a fun little romp. Since it's a Kindle-only book there isn't a page count, but this definitely rates as a short-story in my book. Thing that bugged me: King's seemingly-endless plugging for the Kindle. But if you're reading the story, you obviously already own the Kindle... so I suppose it's just a wink-wink-nudge-nudge to other owners. I think this will get less annoying as time passes, and maybe a read-through a year from now will be better. (And I suppose if I was writing a book about the Kindle I'd sing it's praises too since I absolutely adore this little device.) Things that I liked: The writing style. I love his word choices and punctuation style. It's the reason I've been reading his novels for years and the reason I will continue to do so. No change here. **SPOILERS BE HERE** It's a neat idea (Kindle that can access stories/news from alternate realities), it's executed well, and I was *delighted* to see the phrase "low men in yellow coats" and their infamous red Cadillac. I actually squee'd out loud. And I'm a sucker for anything that references the Dark Tower. The way King ties together most of his stories with the Dark Tower always keeps me coming back for more, even little fun morsels like this.
Very fluffy, good beach read though
I Loved it!! My Favorite Letters Were from Alexander the Great to Darius talking about how he has Dominion over the world. It was an Amazing Read
Maybe I didn't like it because I didn't really understand it-
