Reading 'Dead Wake' by Erik Larson. About the sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine. I've never been much into non-fiction, but this guy does it so well you never notice.

Pens not looking like a team fighting for their lives.

Reading nos4a2 by joe hill. Really good so far. It feels like reading his dad's work 15 years ago.

I can't really help you a whole lot, but my fiance reads nothing but Harlan Coben and John Sandford's 'Prey' series. I've never read them, it's not my thing, but they seem to be similar. She doesn't...

I didn't realize he wrote A Simple Plan. I read that 10 years ago at least.

Reading another recommendation from here, The Ruins. 150 pages in, I'm liking this a lot more than The Troop. Good pick.

Needful Things was the first of his I ever read. I was 14. I should try it again now, see how I feel about it. I barely remember it.

Haha now I see why you didn't like my depth comment. You have Dreamcatcher at #2. Oh well. To each their own.

Okay. Since everyone seems upset about the 'depth' comment, I'll rephrase. It felt to me like cheap scares that King could write in his sleep. It had a good start, but it lost me fast. And The Troop...

This has probably been done at least once in this thread, but it's 152 pages long and I'm not checking.
The book thread got me thinking about how much King I've read and how I'd rank it all. Maybe...

King has more misses than hits to me. Especially his more recent stuff. I think dreamcatcher might have been my least favorite.

I don't know, to me it didn't seem to have much depth at all. It was dreamcatcher with kids instead of adults.

Finished The Troop. I'd give it a 3 out of 5. One of those simple, mindless fun books that doesn't really stick with you after.

I'm cheering for Sarah, but in all reality I think Leroy will win. And I'm okay with that.

After seeing it listed here so much lately, I picked up The Troop today for $3. Should be a pretty fast read, I'll let you know what I think in a day or two.

Okay, I admit, I thought you guys were just being artsy snobs. But you're right though, the original is far better in every way.

I had a question and this seems like a good time to ask it. Recently, some white singers have come under fire for quoting or singing lyrics with the 'n' word. Covering other people's music, putting...

With no way to watch the original, I watched the new one. I didn't think it was bad at all. I'll definitely keep watching. But then I don't have anything to compare it to like all of you.

I've been reading a lot of Simmons lately. Waiting to pick up The Fifth Heart. Sounds like another good one.

Have you seen the video? I'm not sure they're capable of feeling shame.

It's not Keeping Up With the Kettlemans either. I'd just like it to stick to Saul and Mike's relationship. But oh well, I'm sure it'll all tie together in the end.
