Did you read "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon"?

Yep. I've read pretty much everything the man's written. TGWLTG is in the middle of my fave's list: it's not one I'd read over and over again, but I can't help but appreciate King's willingness to try new things, and I thought, considering what he was doing, he did a great job. I mean, it's one thing to have a girl lost in the woods with people looking for her. It's another to have a girl lost in the woods and the only viewpoint we have is that of the girl: she's literally the only character--it was a big risk and it's a testimony to King's mastery of the language that he could write a complete novel about that while keeping our interest.
