I preface these reviews with Stephen King is my favorite author. I collect all of his books and read them all. I love almost all of his books. This was not one of them. I had high hopes after reading so many good reviews on it. It was supposed to be a classic Stephen King horror story. It was supposed to be scary and disturbing. I thought his recent book Mr Mercedes was actually much better and that was more of a crime novel. This book was very disappointing and very boring. Not much really happened the whole book. And the book should have been written in the pastor's point of view.
