A terrible construction site accident takes Edgar Freemantle’s right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. A marriage that produced two lovely daughters suddenly ends, and Edgar begins to wish he hadn’t survived the injuries that could have killed him. He wants out. His psychologist, Dr. Kamen, suggests a “geographic cure,” a new life distant from the Twin Cities and the building business Edgar grew from scratch. And Kamen suggests something else.
So I’ve heard a lots of good things about this book. And since it was written by Stephen King I’ve had high exactions for this book, But this book didn’t live up to my expectations.
The writing style was pretty okay, it wasn’t really on the level with Stephen King but it was good enough for me.
The plot itself didn’t really feel like Stephen King, it rather felt like Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son) pretending to be Stephen King. I personally didn’t get the point of this book nor the story in it. Which really disappointed me.
The book in my opinion was also very boring and uninteresting. And I’ve should probably DNF it and not torture myself with this book as I normally do with books I don’t like.
From the begin this book dragged me in the wrong direction than most people after going through reviews on Goodreads for this book. Which is sort of a relevant thing lately. The bigger rating a book has on Goodreads the higher chance is that I will hate the book.
I know that this review will be very unpopular but that’s just my opinion and I won’t lie about anything on this website. Because we keep it really here.
I give this book 1 / 5
