Story Rating: *****
Cover Rating: A
This is my all-time favorite novel from Stephen King (and I’ve read quite a few of them). The book isn’t one of run-of-the-mill horrors but a deeply disturbing, incredibly dark psychological tale about a young girl. Throughout the book you find yourself wondering what’s real and what is Trisha’s imagination. The detailed and often gross description of what befalls this young girl is in line with the overall story plot. As per usual, King’s characters are vivid and real enough to give you nightmares.
The cover is eye-catching and offers an accurate description of what readers should expect to find within the story.
