When nine year old Tricia McFarland steps off a hiking trail – mostly to ease her bladder, but more to escape the arguing of her brother and mother - she makes a mistake. When she doesn’t retrace her steps, she makes a bigger one. What follows is nine days of deprivation and rising terror…King says ...

Lately, I've been applying the Bechdel test to books. It's actually quite sad how many of them fail. From a techincal standpoint, this book fails as well. But like Gravity, it is a story about survival with other characters making only brief appearances.Trisha is a young girl whose parents are divor...

Stephen King is always a great storyteller. He has a talent for the linking the things that make us most human to the things we most dread and making us care as much as we fear. During the course of his (usually long) books, he slowly lures us into the places where the supernatural is so close, we c...

This was my first time reading this book. I know, I'm just as shocked as you are. So why hadn't I, our resident King fanboy, read The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon? Well... I was homeless when it was released. That period of my life was the first of three times I would live on the streets. In 1999, I ha...

Since it is the Halloween season I wanted to read a few scary type books and of course Stephen King is known for that so I went to my library and picked up a few. I am going to start off saying that this book is a very entertaining read. I wish it was a bit scarier ...well a lot scarier but it sti...

I missed the greatness of”The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon” the first time I read the book. Luckily for me I decided to give the book another go since I hardly remembered the book. That was a wise move. Every step of the way of the book I was with Trisha as she tried to find her way back to civilizatio...

Who the hell came up with the idea of a pop-up book based on a Stephen King novel? This is, literally, a pop-up book version of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. It's quite clever and nicely done, and since the novel itself, while not a children's book, is less gory than most of King's work, the pop-up...

This was just so . . . chilling. I remember when I first read it, it was in a three day-period in the beginning of the summer. I'd just moved into a new house way outside the city, and we own eleven acres of forest on our property (I still live in this house, I'm sitting in it now as I type this in ...

This was the first Stephen King novel I read and I picked it because it was his shortest. I've read several since then and this isn't his best work. I didn't think that girl would ever get out of the woods.
