I like Stephen King. Yes, he’s a bit long winded. Yes, there have been times I’ve just flipped through 20 pages of descriptions thinking “Ok! I get it!” I thought this was one of his better works. A school teacher is in a horrific accident that leaves him in a coma. He comes out of it several years later to discover he has the gift of foresight. And his girlfriend married someone else. Bummer. He foresees calamity when he touches a lowly state representative, and dedicates his life to stopping the apocalypse he sees coming. Now a TV show! I like the book better, but the TV show is very, very good. I guess I’m just a book person.
