I really cannot say anything good about my experience thus far. This is the worst reread I've had to swallow.
It's like King wanted to simultaneously recapture the magic of IT while making up for The Tommyknockers but he didn't want to be bothered with any of the work. I'm not even giving him credit for the "I am the Door" and "Gray Matter" tie-ins. Nope, not gonna do it.
I will say this. I am being overly harsh on an author I love who was obviously in a bad place when he wrote this book. I get that. But it is with tough love that we thrive. King, himself, doesn't like this book. I can see why.
