In the foreward by Stephen King, he indicates this was not his greatest novel. I actually tend to disagree. Though the story was one of his shorter ones, I truly enjoyed it. the setting was well done. The main character is an endearing sort despite all his misgivings. I was grossed out in parts as I expect from the King of Horror, to my pleasure (he never disappoints there). As usually the story is set out so vividly it's nearly like watching it on screen.
I had plenty of laughs reading it. I am only sorry it took me so long to find this old treasure.
