'Popular novelist Dickens is an apt comparison - stands among the best things that this formidable writer has done'
'Thrilling, genuinely terrifying, beautifully textured and full of wonderful invention'
'Stephen King's career-best novel, LISEY'S STORY, a psychological thriller of extraordinary sensitivity that takes the reader deep into the dark places in us all'
'Up there with his finest ... Please don't ever give up writing, Stephen King'
'King is the greatest popular novelist of our day, comparable to Dickens - and one of the reasons for his pre-eminence is that (like Dickens) he keeps his readers with him all the time...A consummate and compassionate novel - one of King's very best'
A wondrous novel of marriage, a love story steeped in strength and tenderness, and cast with the most vivid, touching and believable characters in recent literature . . . A dazzling novel that you'll thank yourself for reading long after the final page is turned.
Accomplished . . . unputdownable . . . his mesmerising best
An incredibly gifted storyteller
'Contains some of the most powerful and affecting passages that King has ever written'
The true narrative artist is a rare creature. Storytelling - the ability to make the listener or the reader need to know, demand to know, what happens next - is a gift...Stephen King, like Charles Dickens before him, has this gift in spades.
King has that rare skill of making you believe it could happen
Gory, extremely entertaining and with a plot to imagine oneself in, this is another winner from the cellphone-avoiding horror master
A cracking good story with a sting in its tale
This is a roller-coaster ride that will thrill many
