BookwormAHN I love this book. When I first read it about 20 yrs ago I didn't realize King wrote fantasy and originally bought it because it had the word dragon in the title 🐲 1h
DGRachel This was the first adult fantasy I ever read and probably only the second fantasy novel. I loved that this was what I expected from King. Was it unexpected for anyone else? Some of the foreshadowing was a bit heavy-handed, but I loved how Peter used the napkins and the dollhouse. I‘m dying to know what the rest of you thought of this one! 🖤💚 1h
BookwormAHN Using the napkins and the dollhouse was brilliant. I had forgotten that part and really enjoyed reading it. 1h
DGRachel @BookwormAHN I love that you picked it up because of the title! 😆😆 I first read it 30 years ago and chose it because it wasn‘t his standard horror fare. I had previously attempted and bailed on both Pet Sematary and IT. 1h

Finished my reread for #losersclub via audio today. While I‘m not a fan of the narrator, I still love this book. I think this is the third or fourth time I‘ve read it. A good fantasy tale with clever plot elements and great characters. I am looking forward to discussing it with the group!

Letora This is one of the few Stephen King books I enjoyed. 1w
DGRachel @Letora it‘s the first of his full-length novels that I finished and enjoyed. I‘ve enjoyed a couple others, but he‘s a very hit-or-miss author for me. 1w
Letora @DGRachel I'm the same way! Give 11/22/63 a shot. That one was pretty good. 1w

This was my second reading of The Eyes of the Dragon so I opted for the audio version. Bronson Pinchot is a really good narrator and his voice for Flag sounds a lot like Kylo Ren which is quite entertaining. I really enjoyed it 🐲

Ok. Do not go into this book expecting the usual Stephen King awesomeness. It's still awesome, just not the usual King fare. Firstly, he wrote this book for his daughter when she was young, so in a sense I suppose you could categorize it as middle grade. And it is toned down A LOT for him. Secondly, it's a fun rip-roaring fantasy by one of our time's best storytellers. **Finished in comments**

toofondofbooks Thirdly, the audiobook is narrated by Bronson Pinchot who does a flipping amazing performance, especially as the dark wizard Flagg (yes THAT Flagg) I loved it. 9mo

Very different from any of the numerous other books I have read by this author but I still thoroughly enjoyed it all the same. Randall Flagg is such an iconic villain when it comes to King's works. It was interesting to learn more of his history.

jackilynn @Bookgirl I have never read it before. With so many Stephen King books to choose from it just kept getting pushed to the back burner. I finally decided no more. I am enjoying it so far. 9mo
Bookgirl @jackilynn so different than most of his stuff, right? This and The Dark Tower series are my favs by him....more straight up fantasy 9mo
jackilynn @Bookgirl it is pretty different compared to most of the other things I have read by him. I binged the Dark Tower series last year and loved it. I heard this was somewhat tied to it (wait most of his stuff ties together lol) so I knew I had to pick it up. 9mo

Another on my #expandedDT journey. This was an easy read, your classic fantasy tale. It was about half the length of your typical King novel, which was a nice change! I was a little slow getting into it but once I dedicated some time, I read the majority of it on one day.

Linear @BethM it is a book written in the tone if a storyteller. I read it the summer before 3rd grade because my mom use to make me copy from it to practice my handwriting. She would ask me what it was about and I would make something up. Never really reading it. That summer I got curious. It has shaped how I wanted to be as a mother, and brought my love of books to life. There where times 8/9 year old me would throw it down.. 12mo
Linear @BethM with the hope it would stop what was happening and save Peter. I got super into it. So yes, yes you should 12mo
BethM @Linear what a great story and a lovely way to practice handwriting! Practicing used to make me cry- I wish my mom had done that! 12mo
Linear @BethM sasha and her lesson about a napkin, that was my " I want to be like her as a mom " moment. Seriously, read this! 12mo

This was my first Stephen King book I usually stay away from kings books and movies because they are too dark for my taste and I tend to scare pretty easily so I was a little worried about this book it wasn't scary though it had some cringy moments. The biggest flaw in this book and the only one that I could find was kings interjections into the story every couple of sentences and his tendency to tell what would happen before it happened.

This isn't even close to being one of my favorite books by him, but it's still good. It was a fun read. It is not Stephen King's typical writing style. The characters were well-written, and the pace of most of the story was good. The main issue I had is the same that I have with a lot of Stephen King books--the buildup to the climax is so great, but then the ending is rushed. All in all, I enjoyed it, and I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

KING FACT OF DAY: Stephen King wrote this Fantasy book for his daughter after she mentioned to him she didn't have much interest in reading his books on vampires and "scary"things . So he wrote this which before he came up with "the eyes of the dragon " it was called napkins lol pretty funny, Kings daughter read the proof and loved it !

This King book is very different from what one would expect, yet I liked it. I guess it is fantasy, as it has a dragon and some magic. Overall it was just a good and engaging story that I have had difficulty putting down. It also works for me for both #MountTBR and #192019

jfalkens Any scary stuff/ suspense/murder? 2y
Melwilk @jfalkens There is Murder and palace intrigue, but nothing scary. 2y
jfalkens @Melwilk that's good, I love Fantasy but am too much of a wuss for all the scary stuff. I picked this up because I had heard he wrote it for his daughter who doesn't like that stuff either. Just haven't gotten to it yet lol 2y

Somehow this early work of Stephen King has eluded me all these years and was well worth the discovery. It was especially fun to read echoes of King's other books of the time period: The Dark Tower, Shawshank Redemption, It. Some might call it repetition but I'll file it under "theme." This fantasy novel is a perfect example of the various registers to King's storytelling. I highly recommend this fairy tale of royals, sorcery, and revenge.
