Lisey's Story: A Novel | Stephen Book
post image

Have you ever looked under the dust jacket of this one? Crazy! I‘m starting today, reading roughly 20 pages a day, although I always finish out the chapter! I‘ve never seen any other cover, so if you have one that‘s different, be sure and tag me so I can see it! #LosersClub #StephenKing #StephenKingInOrder #KingFromTheBeginning #ConstantReader #ReadAlong #BuddyRead #BookDiscussion #ghosthostpost

Addison_Reads I've always loved the artwork under the dust jacket. 💚 1w
tpixie Wow this is gorgeous!! That‘s such a nice surprise. That‘s one of the reasons I don‘t like hardbacks as much as paperbacks- because once you take the paper cover off , usually the book itself is boring. 1w
BarkingMadRun @tpixie yes! Usually some dark color underneath with no personality 1w
BookwormAHN Wow 🖤 1w
KathyWheeler That‘s lovely. I don‘t have a hardback copy. Mine was an Advanced Reader‘s Copy that I got at the American Library Association conference before the book was released. 1w
BarkingMadRun @KathyWheeler that‘s so cool! 1w
Sparklemn Lovely! 💛 1w
ErinSueMreads It's easily the wildest book on my shelf! 5d

BookishTrish Finally planning to join you all! Have my copy of Lisey all lined up! 2w
KathyWheeler It‘s been awhile since I‘ve read this. Looking forward to it. 2w
BarkingMadRun @KathyWheeler I started it once before and didn‘t finish, and can‘t remember why! I am looking forward to reading again! 2w
KathyWheeler @BarkingMadRun Sometimes you‘re just not in a mood for a book at the time you first pick it up. That happens to me a lot. 2w
Karkar Oh I do not like this one. ☹️ this has to be least favorite King. 2w
Addison_Reads @BarkingMadRun Can I be added to the list? I've been wanting to reread Lisey's Story and this gives me a great reason to now. 2w
KathyWheeler @Karkar it‘s one of my least favorites as well, but I figured I‘d read it again anyway. At least I‘ve successfully read it, which hasn‘t happened yet with The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon even though it was so short! 2w
Bklover Yesssssssss!!!!! 2w
Sparklemn Really looking forward to this one! 1w
BarkingMadRun @Sparklemn I‘ve never read this all the way through so I‘m looking forward to it as well! 1w

Soubhiville I love Pratchett‘s way of humanizing all of his races. Getting to know the goblins better was touching. I also got a kick out of his glee of the gross. Between the goblins and their snot pots and Young Sam and his poo obsession, not to mention how awful he always describes the river as being. 3w
Soubhiville One of my favorite quotes (this is from memory, definitely not word for word) is about the countryside being nothing but trees, which are just tall weeds with really thick stems. 😆 3w

Soubhiville Do we think Nobbs has found love at the end of this one? I felt like he maybe has! 3w
ozma.of.oz I love Sybil so much! ❤️ Her no nonsense support of Vimes, what she accomplished at the end with Tears of the Mushroom. And while I was listening, I had to stop to dig out my physical copy so I could highlight so many lines, including the quote “Goodness is about what you do. Not who you pray to.” 2w
khooliha @Soubhiville I think Nobby has and, honestly, I'm thrilled for him! He has been the biggest surprise of this reread - I really do love Nobby, who seems to have more going on than any character gives him credit for. 2w
khooliha Hey, why is this book titled Snuff? I still do not get it. 2w
khooliha I wish that this book had taken place more in the city, for the sake of the theme of assimilation (which it totally drops at like the 60% point), and I -really- wish we had seen more of Colon's state from his own point of view, but that's because that's the sort of storyline I LOVE. 2w
khooliha I really hate that this is the second Watch book in a row where the 'solution' to a revolutionary is to make them a cop! Justice for Reg and Jethro! 2w
khooliha Oh, also, I found the human villain (Stratford?) a very frustrating device - he's Bad and Dangerous, terribly so, but also our leads pretty much always have the jump on him, rendering him not much more than bad intentions. He also isn't enough of a foil to work as a metaphorical evil, I don't think. And it took over half the book to introduce him! He's a weak link, to me. 2w

2 books I had the privileged to read in Sofia‘s #readalong program. I am happy to find and explore the very different views that are shared in class. These are things that were never open to me, and considered immovable doctrines in my home country.
