I start salivating about six months before any new Stephen King novel is released and couldn't wait to get my hands on Duma Key. As usual with the "master's" books, I read it in one weekend, driving my poor dog nuts because I wouldn't put the light out and go to sleep like a good doggy mommy. It took a lot of coffee to get me going Monday morning, but it was well worth it as this is King's best work in many years (yes, far better than Lisey's Story and as good as The Shining). King does a great job creating anticipation, steadily building the chills and horror; by the end, you are so invested in the characters and plot you would die rather than put the book down.
