Lisey's Story by Stephen King

Possibly King's most ambitious and accomplished book ever, Lisey's Story is a profoundly moving and disturbing novel about a widow coping with the loss of her writer husband. It's a grand, ambitious and layered book, with unrelenting emotional power. It's a book for the ages -- exploring the dark secrets of the ones we love, and the very wellsprings of creativity (from the publisher).
It took me forever and a day to finish this book. I just wasn't taken in with the story, and for the most part, found it hard to keep my mind on what I was reading. I didn't even like the characters. While Stephen King did create some rather out-there places/dimensions in this book, it still fell below my expectations.
Rating - I give this 2.5/5 Nothing Special

Get this from the library
