Original plot & great twists
Sexual sadists everwhere in the script (*)

A must for readers of the first chronicle. Beautifully written.
None whatsoever. (*)
Great opening line
The thought of six more books to go (*)
Stephen King's claim to fame ; Superb atmosphere ; Sublime plot ; A vivid imagination that stretches all supernatural boundaries ; Probably responsible for some of the best horror films of the 70's and 80's
Some unessesary background in the first half ; Kubrik mucked up the story too much ; Could have been much more (*)
Great characters and setting, different style to King's other works
Fans may not like it as much as King's horror stories (*)
A nicely laid back style to the story telling
The ending may disappoint (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (H)
The page count is high enough to allow a lot of time to be spent on the book
Longer isn't always better (*)
light and entertaining supernatural fantasy, excellent villains, brazen hero looking for action
Rachel's flightiness makes it difficult to stay focused sometimes (*)
Exciting ending.
Grusome but not scary. (*)
Short novel, ideal for a first introduction to Herbert
None worth mentioning. (*)
It's not a bad book.
This book could have been so much better. There are angles which you want to explore but the book never gets there. (*)
