some big space bug comes to earth a long time ago. Now it resides in a Maine town and feeds on kids every 26years or so. Anyway, some kids hurt it and then come back in 26 years to finish the job.
The horror in this novel lay in fact that humans are so bad. The people did horrible things, ignored horrible things, etc. Murder, madness, death and destruction.
I haven’t read any of King’s stuff since highschool [and those were some short story collections] and I don’t plan on reading anymore. I don’t want to fill my mind with evil.
And yet it is incredible writing.
