Notes History
Date Read Note
11.26.05 From a 1090 page King book to a 190 page King book, the Colorado Kid is a short but sweet mystery tale published by Hard Case Crime in pulpy trade paperback form, complete with a mail-in subscription card inserted halfway through. It's a story about the messiness of real-life mystery and how most stories do not wrap up clean and tidy in 44 minutes. It's a fast read and pretty good, but the central dead body of the piece is basically Laura Palmer. I could not get the image of Palmer's blue face wrapped in plastic on that pacific northwest beach out of my mind for this entire story... It's not as odd as Twin Peaks, but I think the same immediate curiosity drives both stories.
