The Tommyknockers by Stephen King review
Book: The Tommyknockers
Author: Stephen King
Have I read this author before?: Yes
I recently got this book at the library and over a few days read it. I've read Stephen King before and partially threw it I didn't know what to think, and at times there were action scenes that should have never ended.
So one of the best parts was the epigraph, I love creepy old nursery rhymes. I was at first dissapointed on how much it was repeated, but as the book went on I understood why. It didn't matter, just like the name Tommyknockers. All that really mattered was what happened.
At first I didn't understand much about Gard other than his love for alcohol and and almost shooting his wife. Then the skiing accident and the metal plate in his head. I was in the beginning more interested in Bobbi but as the book went on I shifted to Gard. But my absolute favorite was definitely Ruth, she had the most character development. I wished for more to be known about her, but yeah, the accident. . . . I also loved how her dolls started talking to her on July 19th, my birthday!
The book did not scare me, at times it made me laugh, and at times I was shocked. And what happened to Bobbi, I eventually had no sympathy for her.
Altair 4 was really good and I want to know more, but the description Stephen gave was good enough.
Great scene: Jesus!
So I give this 5 stars. Yeah.
