Duma Key
Duma Key: A Novel | Stephen King
No more than a dark pencil line on a blank page. A horizon line, maybe. But also a slot for blackness to pour through...A terrible construction site accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. A marriage that produced two lovely daughters suddenly ends, and Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived the injuries that could have killed him. He wants out. His psychologist, Dr. Kamen, suggests a "geographic cure," a new life distant from the Twin Cities and the building business Edgar grew from scratch. And Kamen suggests something else. ""Edgar, does anything make you happy?" "I used to sketch.""Take it up again. You need hedges...hedges against the night.""Edgar leaves Minnesota for a rented house on Duma Key, a stunningly beautiful, eerily undeveloped splinter of the Florida coast. The sun setting into the Gulf of Mexico and the tidal rattling of shells on the beach call out to him, and Edgar draws. A visit from Ilse, the daughter he dotes on, starts his movement out of solitude. He meets a kindred spirit in Wireman, a man reluctant to reveal his own wounds, and then Elizabeth Eastlake, a sick old woman whose roots are tangled deep in Duma Key. Now Edgar paints, sometimes feverishly, his exploding talent both a wonder and a weapon. Many of his paintings have a power that cannot be controlled. When Elizabeth's past unfolds and the ghosts of her childhood begin to appear, the damage of which they are capable is truly devastating. The tenacity of love, the perils of creativity, the mysteries of memory and the nature of the supernatural -- Stephen King gives us a novel as fascinating as it is gripping and terrifying.

5feet.of.fury The beginning was such a bummer that I almost didn‘t go on. (Pam, The divorce, the DOG😩) but I ended up really enjoying it. 2mo
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury I know! Stephen King is so messed up! 2mo
ErinSueMreads Ohhhh the dogggg 😭😭😭😭 but in typical king fashion it gets so much worse 🤣🤣🤣🤣. I remember the first time I read it closing the book and setting it on the coffee table and staring at it when he finds out about Elsa. I knew it was coming from all the foreshadowing but still! @BarkingMadRun and @5feet.of.fury 2mo
BarkingMadRead @ErinSueMreads that was the worst, knowing it‘s coming never helps! It almost makes it worse! 2mo
ErinSueMreads Yessssss especially since the heavy foreshadowing started like 4 chapters prior! 2mo
ErinSueMreads Also going back to the first time i read it....did anyone else think it was going to a weirdly normal king book at first? Like the paranormal stuff really took me off guard for some reason. 2mo
BarkingMadRead @ErinSueMreads yes! I thought it was going to more like a cujo type of thing, something scary but real, and then wham! 2mo
5feet.of.fury @ErinSueMreads agree! The change in narration with the daughter “that was the last time we ever talked” 😭 and I was like “what he just saved her, she burned the picture!” Ugh. Everything after that became such a frenzy. Loved it @BarkingMadRun (edited) 2mo
5feet.of.fury @ErinSueMreads I did, Edgar was so tortured after the accident I thought it was going to be more of a war with his mind type of thing vs…. All the other things that happened. 2mo
ErinSueMreads @BarkingMadRun it really is a WHAM too! 2mo
ErinSueMreads @5feet.of.fury that literally hits you like a ton of bricks. Like physically feel your stomach drop out of your body. And yes! I thought it was going to be a psychological one too! And it's not even like he tries to hide that it won't be! The whole book gets progressively weirder! But for some reason my brain just avoided and avoided 🤣🤣🤣🤣 2mo
ErinSueMreads Also can we talk about how jack, wireman, miss Eastlake, and Edgar are literally some of the best characters he has ever written? Like we all know he's a strong character writer, but he really outdid himself on this one. Wireman especially is just so overtop yet so real at the same time. I want a wireman friend 2mo
ErinSueMreads Unless he comes with a moldy old mansion full of maybe vampires and porcelain dolls. If so so I'm out 2mo
ErinSueMreads Also also...ifso....since we were on the subject of iykyk @BarkingMadRun I'm almost deleted the last sentence in my previous post 🤣 2mo
BarkingMadRead @ErinSueMreads omg yes! Such vivid characters and everyone needs a wireman. I was really hoping for a Shawshank ending! 2mo
Addison_Reads I didn't get a chance to re-read this one but this discussion is making me want to go back to it soon. 2mo
Bklover @ErinSueMreads I agree- his characters are always wonderful but these are exceptional. I remember though the first time I read this the whole book felt weird as it doesn‘t take place in Maine. It still feels odd to me reading a SK book that takes place in Florida. I love this one though! 2mo
NikkiM5 I just finished the book, so I avoided the post until now. I loved this book. And totally agree, these are some of the best King characters; I loved them all. Except Pam, she can kick rocks in socks 🤣 2mo
BarkingMadRead @NikkiM5 I agree lol what a horrible human she is 2mo
NikkiM5 I admit she is a good “villain”. And despite the size of this book (I promise, I will be on time next month 😂 I need to check these page numbers) I did not want this book to end. And I loved looking up the artwork. That‘s also why I took so long, as usual, King had me googling a lot. Losing Wireman was pretty painful, ugh la loteria 😢 2mo
BarkingMadRead @NikkiM5 I love when I have to Google during a book, but it can often be such a rabbit hole! After this we are doing Under the Dome, but I think I‘m going to extend the time because it‘s THICK 2mo
NikkiM5 Yes and I am a sucker for Rabbit holes 🤣 I‘ve read Under the Dome, so I won‘t be late for that 2mo

Finished a whole day early for #losersclub can‘t wait to discuss!

What an adventure!
It‘s a long one, I haven‘t read TOO much Stephen King but in similarities to the others I have read: I found the pacing to be impeccable. The repeated phrasing he uses amped up the tension phenomenally. Creepy twins.
This one also has art, a ghost ship, premonitions, creepy dolls, trauma..

The beginning was uncomfortable, glad I persevered.

BarkingMadRead The beginning was awful for sure, but I really ended up loving it! So glad you enjoyed it as well!! 2mo

15 servings potatoes (freezer)
6 servings squash (freezer)
2 quarts of fire cider
1 quart elderberry cough syrup

12 hrs of duma key listened to.

This week has been a dousey. Spent a night in the Ed with my brother then to find out he might have cancer to the next day saying it‘s not it might be a severe infection. So here‘s to hoping this next week is better. What‘s an author you collect? I collect Stephen king. I‘m slowly making my way through his books. So far the stand and cell are my favorites.

Nikki_E The Stand is one of my top reads of any author. I collect copies of Anne ofGreen Gables. 3mo

When I‘m not reading (or listening to) Stephen King, I forget how freaking much I love Stephen King… but it all comes back so fast.

My Duma Key hardcover has been on the shelf long enough for several people to borrow/read it (and to lose its dust jacket) but I listened instead.🤷🏻‍♀️

I loved the weirdness, creeping dread in paradise, difficult relationships honestly dealt with, and amazing characters. Plus art and a ghost ship!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

DGRachel This is one of my favorite King novels. It has this quiet dread hanging over the whole thing. 3mo

Audiobook pick:
This has a slow build to a great ending. Definite Lovecraftian vibes throughout. Kind of a bizarre story line overall. (no surprise with this author)
Jerome Wireman may be one of my favorite characters in a novel.
The narrator was really good too. I will be hunting for more under his name.

In my opinion, King‘s best work. I‘ve read a lot a King so this is a big statement. Haunting and ethereal. The story of a millionaire whose body is ruined in a life altering accident and his journey back to the land of the living and the ghost he must embrace to get there.

#BookSpinBingo (free) @TheAromaofBooks NEWTs (Aug read on Sept) class transfiguration-prompt-Duro (hardening spell)=hardcover. After a serious work related accident Edgar went to Duma Key Fl. He started to paint and started to experience ESP, experiences connected with Duma Key owners and ghosts. Character driven which I like but some parts were too unnecessarily long. Sad parts😢3.85⭐️Thanks @BookwormAHN book given in swap in 2019

TheNeverendingTBR I liked the character Wireman and loved the book so much, very sad and tragic though! 😢 2y
Gissy I should add that I almost DNF the book because the character use a female doll as an anger control object. Who suggested this part to Mr. King? I was furious 😡but then this area was resolved in the novel. Never an object that represents a human being or animal should be used as a tool for anger management. This could be a trigger for some persons or a reason for not reading the novel, I will understand. 2y

One of my favorite book memories is from 2 summers ago. I read this on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico which is where it‘s set. It made it extra scary! Then on our last day we went to a restaurant with this painting so like the cover of the book, which is partially about creepy paintings, and the coincidence pushed the whole thing over the edge.

Picked my Halloween read for the year by seeing what was on the library shelf and came up with this. I'm slowly making my way through Stephen King novels which I didn't read as a teen. I was thinking of reading Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes but it wasn't available. I always enjoy reading Stephen King though although I've only read only a few of his novels.

Last summer on a #layover from Arizona to Florida my husband covertly took this picture of me. I had just finished Stardust by Neil Gaiman and was getting ready to start Duma Key, my favorite of the year.
Also his selfies are mirrored so that‘s why the cover is backwards and my tattoo is on the wrong ankle.

I had to put RWARB on hold and pick DK by SK up. Engaging already! Now the problem is I have 3 books going at once. We‘ll see what happens🤓

Branwen I love this book! I hope you do too! 🤗💕📚 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Branwen Thank you!! I‘m only on p27(of 689, lol), but once again, Mr. King hooked me from the get go!! 📚❤️ 3y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Branwen I‘m just at p298 of British paperback, and I‘m loving this book! 3y

When I looked at @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks feed today it reminded me I had this pic I‘ve never shared. This was a family #vacation I took last year to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Our room had a screened porch with a peek of the ocean. It was a lovely reading spot, especially when it rained. I read Duma Key which was one of my favorite books of 2018.

Fell asleep listening to this last night and had some *weird* ass dreams. Of course, I didn't learn my lesson and plan the same for tonight. Lol

Spring has officially arrived now that the sidewalks are clear enough to lace up my sneakers, instead of winter boots, for my audiobook walking sessions! 🌼🌿

Clwojick I freaking love those shoes so much 😍 4y
CuriousG Check out @anamariadessin on Instagram (or anamariadessin.ca) - she makes them herself and the fabric for these is from recycled pop bottles! 4y
