From the sublime to the ridiculous? After putting away All the Light We Cannot See, I picked up King’s newest novel. Now, I was utterly terrified when I was younger reading Pet Sematary. Truly terrified. I know that this book, the second in the Mr. Mercedes trilogy, is more about suspense than horror, but the only suspense I’ve felt is wondering how long it will take me to finish. I’m about halfway through, and nothing has gripped me. Not a scene. I’ve read it gets increasingly more interesting. But still: To make a reader slog through half a book to get to the good stuff is unforgivable. More later.

Update: Arrrrgh! This is so impossibly boring to get through. I will do it for you, dear reader, but I have to tell you, it’s a real pain in my ass.

Update: I abandoned the book. Just couldn’t do it.
