Red Dead Reademption

I don't have time to read as much as I'd like anymore, so when I do, I make sure what I'm reading is the best I can find.

Desperation - Stephen King King at the height of his freaky weirdness. Pretty much had me hooked from the first page with the roadsign. Nice exploration of divine interference, pre-determination, and supernatural chessmasters.

King's prose is, well, King. He paints vivid pictures and distinct characters. Desperation keeps a tone of unsettling creepiness from the beginning to the end, and while not sleep-with-the-lights-on scary, parts are very unsettling, in a facing-the-darkness-within kind of way. Looking forward to the Bachman companion novel next.
