For me this was a different King book. More thoughtful and "deeper" than others. There was no formulaic tangible monster with fangs or supernatural presence to haunt and scare at every twist and turn. Time, everybody's elusive monster, creates a measure of horror in this book. I enjoyed reading it more than I've enjoyed a Stephen King book in years.

I love a good time-travel novel, and this one doesn't disappoint. I was reticent at first, as I hadn't picked up a Stephen King book since a certain way-too-much-detailed telling of a pin being forced into the eye of one of his characters; but his tendency towards gore is kept to a very slight minimum here and when it does appear is totally in line with the plot.

As usual, King's description of the '50s & '60s is spot on, and his characters are fleshed out and very human. At first painting the past in a rosy glow, he doesn't shy away from eventually showing the all-to-familiar rot under the surface. His prose keeps things moving along at a brisk pace and makes the book hard to put down when it comes time to re-enter the real world.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes time travel novels, historical novels, or just a really good read.
