01.02.19 It's funny how every once in a while these super short King books come out. Maybe he doesn't have enough other short stories to build a collection book out yet? Either way, I'm pretty sure I've read novellas longer than this one that weren't published on their own. On the other hand, most of his short works (I'm thinking The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and The Colorado Kid here) are good if not a bit forgettable and I think this fits nicely into that category. It's a nice, Richard Matheson-esque idea that is at times fun and others sad. It doesn't bother at all with the "why" (I personally think that's why he set it in Castle Rock where weird things have been happening for decades) and also doesn't really ponder the meaning behind anything. I think this feels more like a short story than a novel because there's really just one thought being expressed here: that life can be sweet if you look at it that way. Pretty good.
