Stephen King at the top of his form!

Finders Keepers (Bill Hodges Trilogy, #2)Finders Keepers by Stephen King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This review is probably superfluous – I assume this will be widely reviewed (or at least rated.) However, I want to share my opinion that this is Stephen King at the top of his form – if you prefer his character-oriented, not-so-supernatural writing. Like any great master, he makes the work seem effortless. Getting swept along by his seemingly simple prose feels similarly effortless to this reader. I don’t turn the pages to see what will happen next to his characters because they are glamorous; I do so because they have become real to me. Among the special gifts in this one are some musings, seamlessly worked into the story, about the phenomenon of being so immersed in fiction that its world can seem more “real” than that of the reader. I enjoyed this thoroughly at multiple levels. Thank you, Stephen King!
