Reading: Stephen King's Revival

I recently treated myself to my first paperback in a long time, and of course, it was a Stephen King book.

Revival is very well written from a description and atmosphere perspective. The usual first person format from King is believable and relatable. My issue with this book is the slow uptake and disappointing climax, which seemed far-fetched in relation to the tone in the rest of the book.

All around, the tactile nature of holding a paperback and King's expert storytelling and writing made for a very enjoyable reading experience.

I couldn't put the book down and was able to read it in a span of 24 hours.

I already pre-ordered his next book and downloaded a couple of recent ones that I haven't gotten to yet, from Amazon.
