SOMETIMES GROWING UP 
 
MEANS FACING YOUR DEMONS
 
The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave. 
 
LATER is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King’s classic novel It, LATER is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.

    This one isn’t up to his usual standards. A shadow of past works of genius and madness.

    For King, a shorter novel, but with plenty of substance and what’s-going-to-happen-next page turning suspense. Told in the first person, he puts you up front in the action. Recommend to all readers of novels.

    Mr. King never lets a reader down. He has an art of leaving his reader thinking…”Well this could be true..if fact I am sure it is!” That kind of thinking is darn spooky. I was let down that the book was not longer due to my constant devotion to it. I hope Mr. King has much more up his sleeves to write about. I am a King addict, and proud of it.
  • Wait for it….

    The plot was kind of all over the place. No characters were that interesting. The end was very weird and unnecessary. I just think he tried to fit too many storylines into one book. It felt rushed. Very disappointing.
  • Meh, Maybe I’ll Like It…Later

    not much of a “horror” story, more of a twisted tale of confusion, lies & betrayal; quick read overall, w/ some slow moments. the climax didn’t really do much for me, kind of felt like the climax was settled upon out of a need to end the book.
  • Great page turner
