Stephen King Book Club Night-Carrie!

Last night was my second visit to the Stephen King Book Club at Blue Umbrella Books.

Going by the window display below, what book do you think we read?

 

Some attendees dressed up and others didn't, but we all had a great time!

Stephen King Book Club!

 

Last night was my first ever trip to a real life book club. It was fun!

It was held at Blue Umbrella Books in Westfield, MA. It's a nice little shop with all kinds of cool finds, like the two below. (Turns out free book club might be expensive!)

 

We talked about Stephen King's RAGE and had an enlightening discussion as our ratings of the book ranged from 2-5 stars out of a possible 5. 

 

A semi-local author I admire also attended, (Tom Deady!), so that was awesome. 

 

I loved their window display so much, I took a picture of it below. (It's circus themed!)

 

I want to say thank you to Bark and to Tressa and Maggie for urging me to go. My introvert-ness was giving me fits yesterday, but I persevered thanks to their kind words.

The Illustrated Stephen King Trivia Book (Revised & Updated)
The Illustrated Stephen King Trivia Book (Revised & Updated) - Brian James Freeman,Bev Vincent,Glenn Chadbourne This was a very good and entertaining SK trivia book and worked surprisingly well in the ebook format. Some of the questions were very obscure (too obscure?), even for the most discerning Stephen King fan. Some of the “hints’ were pretty amusing as well. I only wish it had more illustrations. A welcome addition to any SK collection.

I received a review copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review

The Shining Review (Stephen King Reread: Book #3)
The Shining - Stephen King

Part of the reason I'm rereading all of King's books in chronological order is to watch the progression of a creative mind. I believe The Shining is King's strongest piece, his most well-rounded achievement. Fantastic opening, amazing character development, truly terrifying scenes, and one epic ending. No other King book has that combination. Or at least I do not recall one that does. Has my opinion changed? Not yet.

 

There are only a handful of authors who can scare me with implication. Point in fact: the hedge animals. I mean, even if the lions had gotten a hold of Hallorann, what were they going to do? Foliage him to death? Still, every single scene involving the hedge animals is terrifying. And you don't even know what they're capable of because their actions are never shown, only implied. Don't even get me started on that fucking fire hose. Nightmare inducing shit...

 

In summation: If you don't read any other King novel, read this one. That's all I have to say on the subject.

 

I know this review sucks, but it's also my fourth or fifth time reading this book, so give me a break. I'll do better on the next one, promise.

Reading progress update: I've read 457 out of 659 pages.
The Shining - Stephen King

I don't want to stop, but there's no way I can read another 200 pages tonight. This will be completed tomorrow, I suppose. 

 

I think this is the quickest I've ever read this one. 659 pages in four days might be a record for me, period. :)
