"This book would be an easy 5 star if I didn’t think the beginning was a little slow. I find that in most Stephen King books I read though. But as soon as it started to pick up I could not put it down!!! It’s an amazing book and I honestly don’t think I could ever speak too highly of it. There were parts where I was positive I knew what was gonna happen only to be surprised once again. There was sooo many different twists and turns throughout the book that just made it that much better."
