Oh Stephen King. Your books are so good. Until they get weird. Why do I do this to myself? I love your characters. ( )
  katelindsey | Feb 27, 2021 |
This book is 750 pages. It's a long long read. I loved the first 500 pages. King creates a sense of mystery, of wonder, of suspense. It's like a Twilight Zone form of creepiness that isn't monster-y but challenges the strength of the character and it unfolds and unfolds and unfolds. Relationships are formed, relationships change...but never beyond a sort of goofy level of simplicity. I kept turning pages, kept feeling good about the characters and their challenges and their relationships. I knew all along that the "guy suffers physically and emerges with powers" goes back to The Dead Zone or in a different way The Dark Half and probably others. And "place has a tangible darkness" was a big part of Black House (which I loved at the beginning but got annoyed and gave up on when it crossed over to The Dark Tower universe) and kinda shows up here. So I feel mixed; by the end I was sick of the book and resentful of having to wade through even MORE of stuff happening to these characters once I was sick of them and didn't care about climactic final act killing over MONSTERS which the book did fine without revealing most of the time.

It's not King's best work, BUT it's far better than Cell.

King has, at least, learned to creep me out again. However, these moments were far apart, which doesn't quite build up in the rollercoaster way I think he'd hoped they would.

He's also apparently learned a few words of Spanish or found a translation dictionary. ( )

Quando termini un libro così, sai perché, in tanti anni di lettura, l'amore per King non è mai venuto meno... ( )

i love the themes in this one: the power of art and imagination. (and less so, but there's a bit of his evil residing in a place thing that he often returns to.) thematically he's great; it's what i'm drawn to with him (other than the great characterizations) even when the general content isn't my thing. this is a good example of a book whose story doesn't really appeal to me, but the themes totally do.

i never bought the swings in personality that pam, the ex-wife, exhibited. i know i've never been through an acrimonious break up, but i just don't see her being so mean and angry and then so normal. i really don't feel like it fit her character. and i'm not sure how natural the spanish ever felt coming from wireman. some of it, for sure, but i don't know that people really talk like that. again, though, i'm not drawing from my experience, just a feeling. otherwise, this read generally well, and the story was ok. i really loved the art stuff and what it says about identity and how it can shape us. for me that's the important part, and the main takeaway. the rest was fodder for that, although he'd probably say the opposite was true.

"I thought I would sleep no more that night, but eventually I did. In the end we always wear out our worries." ( )

Sometimes, you hardly know where to begin. And so it is with "Duma Key," latest in a gloriously long line of tales from the uber-popular Stephen King.
 
There are bad accidents, and there are horrible accidents, and horror novelist Stephen King knows about the worst kind.

Stephen King’s “Duma Key” ventures to an all-but-uninhabited Florida island where the shells groan at high tide, tennis balls appear unexpectedly, foliage grows ominously quickly, and at least one heron flies upside-down. Given this combination of author and setting, it’s inevitable that something terribly undead will show up before the book is over.

When Stephen King wrote Misery in 1987, making the hero a writer was an unusual departure for him. Recently, however, centring his novels on creative types has become a habit. In Cell, the protagonist is a comic-book artist. Lisey’s Story involves a dead author whose widow struggles to protect his legacy. And Duma Key’s narrator, Edgar Freemantle, is a painter whose work gives him paranormal powers – to know everything about people hundreds of miles away, to predict events, even to heal or kill someone.
