One of the first books I ever read by America's reigning king of horror and suspense, and still one of the best by far. Also the first and only time that reading a work of fiction has made me a little... well... scared of its author. It also piqued my curiosity re: King's pseudonym, but I haven't made the time to check out any of the Bachman books yet. Based on On Writing, I know King's motives for employing a pen name differ greatly from those of Thad Beaumont, but still: It kinda makes you wonder...

One of the top ten books I continue to re-read over the years. The Dark Half is truly inventive and thoughtfully written to let the reader walk alongside the main character, Thad Beaumont and all of his eventual hard-pressed dilemas, like being accused a serial killer...
Turning the pages becomes easier and easier as the plot thickens and many unanswered questions arise. Everything plays out very well toward the end and King allows the characters to seem real and tangible, whether likeable or hated.
Simply a terrific read cover to cover, don't just trust my call, here.
Open it up and keep reading.
