The third and latest book in the "Hard Case Crime" series, this wasn't as good as Joyland, but was better than The Colorado Kid. I found it more entertaining than some of the longer novels King has written recently. It's almost like he does better with shorter stories. It's a horror story, but more from gory descriptions (ghosts appearing like their body does after whatever happened to make them die) than anything actually trying to be scary. ( )

I loved this book.
I don’t want to give anything away. So I will only say two things about this book.
It’s One of his best works, EVER when it comes to scares and horror.
And it’s the closest we will ever get to a sequel to his masterpiece, IT. ( )

Again, a supernatural phenomenon not as the essence of the story, but as an element that pushes the story on. Predictable, in a way. But in a good way : )

Jamie Conklin discovers at an early age that he has the ability to not only see dead people but to talk to them. The dead never stick around long but while they are there they can’t lie but only tell the truth. His mother, understandably, doesn’t want him to tell people about this ability, even if she takes advantage of it herself. Jamie is happy to agree but somebody else does know and she too wants to use these abilities to her advantage – but with far more deadlier consequences.

Published for Hard Case Crime, “Later” is a solidly good Stephen King novel. King has always been good at writing about children and he does an excellent job with Jamie – basically an ordinary kid who just happens to be able to talk to the dead. In many ways this is a typical Stephen King novel – filled with the supernatural (including a supernatural monster), blood, gore, plenty of swearing, and some great gotcha moments. There are also references to other works by Stephen King and he rather cheekily quotes himself at one point. But strip aside the horror and supernatural elements and you also get what King does best – tell the story of two ordinary people dealing with the extraordinary. Jamie grows up throughout the course of the story but, despite his ability, he is a regular boy who plays sports and likes a girl (or two); his mother is a single mother who has made some mistakes along the way (sometimes huge mistakes) but she clearly loves her son and does her best. Jamie’s quest to find out who his father was, to me, one of the most moving parts of the book, and the answer the most frightening.

“Later” is another good book by Stephen King. ( )

Boy has unnatural ability to see recently deceased people. However a crooked cop (former lover of mother) uses him 2x to serve her own purposes. Told from POV of boy from age 4 to college. At first it seems to be a young adult novel but it is not. Terrifying and touching. Lost innocence. Good values vs bad judgement. Being strong. Facing evil. ( )

These are the type of stories I love to read. I hope I can see your work in NovelStar. There are also a lot of talented writers in that platform. You may check their group on Facebook.

I don't like to start with an apology -- there's probably even a rule against it, like never ending a sentence with a preposition -- but after reading over the thirty pages I've written so far, I feel like I have to.
