I consider this to be King's best literary work. I also consider it to be one of the best pieces of literature in the 20th C. It has nearly all literary motifs, and heavy in symbolism. A good read, and a good study in lit!
Finished this one a few days ago -- soo, soo good!! Another excellent story from an amazing storyteller, and one of those stories you are still thinking about and affected by days after finishing. Highly recommend!
