while recovering from a horrible accident wherein he was turned into a mixture of speed bump and pretzel Whatever King wrote during this time would have been utter crap, trust me Pain dulls the creative process This is why the mo This was an amazing book Even though it took me 3 months to read it was worth it Anyone who wants to read this book must be prepared for sleepless nights and
