Well plotted and plausible thriller, but as usual with King’s books, it was the characters and their individual stories that drove me on through most of the book. The “what happens next” takes the co-pilot seat in the last third of the book, turning into a real nail-biter at the end. King’s genius...

First of all can I just say that I'm so done with listening to older guys getting way too into awkward sex scenes when narrating audiobooks... I wasn't that great of a fan of the narrator in the first place and after that it just got really painful. Will Patton drawled his way through this and while...

Although the ex-detective is an idiot who apparently forgot all about procedure and common sense, the other characters were smart and helpful, and I liked them a lot. The middle of the book lagged a bit, but the beginning and end were really engaging. Four stars!

Ondanks dat je meteen al weet wie het heeft gedaan, is dit boek vanaf de eerste bladzijde spannend. Het wisselt van POV, wat ik - vooral bij thrillers - erg fijn vind om te lezen; dat houdt het tempo hoog. Vooral het POV van Brady vond ik leuk, zo'n geflipte jongen..Het einde vond ik wel een beetje...

Reading a King novel has become an annual thing for me the past few years. Previously I read a couple gigantic "classics" (It and The Stand). This time I went for something more recent: the first book in what's become the Bill Hodges trilogy, Mr. Mercedes. A detective thriller rather than horror, th...

I don't know how any reader could not love Stephen King. This was far from the normal for him, yet not stretched. Just like with many of his novels, I found myself chuckling throughout. His sense of humor and delivery is always perfect. He's not pretentious, doesn't get caught up on vocabulary...

Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; ...

I put off reading this book because I wasn't sure whether my expectations of a Stephen King novel would fit with a pure thriller -ie no horror, supernatural, time travel or post-apocalyptic event. However, I wish I had read it earlier, I loved it. It is Stephen King's style that I love and this, f...
