CONWAY Blogging King In Order
I enjoy Joe Conway's blog, where he is reading through the Stephen King universe in order. The entry's are short, to the point and easy to read.
Conway writes, "I’m doing this is to put my Stephen King “obsession” to bed once and for all. Once I do this, I’ll know I’ll have read every Stephen King fictional work. For some reason, I always find myself returning to Stephen King when I don’t know what to read."
About RAGE, Conway notes, " It’s like a dark version of Catcher In The Rye, with a little Breakfast Club, and maybe some Lord Of The Flies mixed in for good measure." I hadn't thought about that.
Conway often has opinions that others would be afraid to post! He loves King, but suggests that maybe the short stories aren't King at his best. He thinks the Shining is "necessarily slow." Truth is, I like the honest straightforward reviews.
Also, if you are interested in the audio books of some of the early novels, Conway reviews these as well. For instance, Rage does exist on audio -- and he reviews the audio.
