One of his earlier works and classic King.

Interesting tale of gypsy curses and humble pie. if you view the 1996 film, you will see a cameo of King as the pharmacist, Dr. Bangor.

I was tired of hearing jokes and references in media about this and not understanding it so I figured I'd familiarize myself with the book. It was ok I guess. Was it scary? Nah, but then was it really meant to be? I know I'm not supposed to feel for the protagonist and I didn't really.. so it's a book where you hear a man whine about getting his comeuppances I guess.

It's good, but it got a little boring at times. I sort of just wanted to find out what happened at the end rather than reading about him blaming his wife for the accident.

After seeing the movie, I thought I'd read the book because King's works only very rarely make a successful transition. And for me his works fall into two categories - I like it or I really, really don't. This falls in to the latter category.
