      Haunted read! a bit long but the storyline was scary good and very intense (paperback!)

      I am a Stephen King junkie. I started reading him in high school and quickly tore through just about everything he'd ever written, and then started buying every new book he put out. Being a Stephen King fan is kind of like being a geek for Dragonlance or comic books - reviewing his work seems borderline pointless because non-fans will usually dismiss him out of hand and be hard to convince of any intrinsic value, and fans are already pretty hardcore about him. Nevertheless, I wanted to add this [...]

      I am enjoying what I think is perhaps Stephen King’s best novel, ever.The opinion on Stephen King’s best work differs depending on who you talk to; but for me, it will always be Bag of Bones.It’s the one novel of Kings that I’ve read more than any other (nine times) and each time it’s just as wonderful and beautiful and engaging as it was the first time I opened up my hardcover copy ten years ago.I think it was the beginning of King moving away from horror and toward a more literary st [...]

      Grief. That's the emotion that got to me the most during this reread.The first time I read this book I had just turned thirty and even though I was already married, the horror of losing a spouse didn't get through to me like it did this time. Now, after just having celebrated my 30th wedding anniversary, the idea of losing my husband is unfathomable. Stephen King dove deep into those fathoms and dragged me along with him. I did not like what I saw or felt. That, right there, is the reason why St [...]

    6. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      I was a big Stephen King fan back in the 7th grade, mainly because it was my first experience with books written for adults. After a while though, I stared reading other more obscure novels and I stopped reading King's works. Bag of Bones really caught my interest though, and I found it to be much better than many of his other books because of the way it deals so much with plain human emotion, loss and life. Like his novel Pet Sematary, Bag of Bones has a main theme of overwhelming grief, as the [...]

    7. Edward Lorn on said:

      Had you asked me a month ago what I thought of Bag of Bones I might have chuckled and shook my head. I might have told you it is one of the worst Stephen King books there is, that it is easily in my bottom five King reads, down there with such piles of Kingly excrement as Dreamcatcher, Wizard and Glass, The Eyes of the Dragon, and From a Buick 8, the latter being the pinnacle of Uncle Stevie's fecal production. In other words, friends and neighbors, I hated this book.But that was then and this i [...]

      Some ghosts can be deadlyd as KING fans already know, evil always seems to be present in and around DerryG OF BONES is the story of novelist Michael Noonan and the effects of his profound grief after the sudden loss of his beloved wife. Even after four years, a paralyzing writer's block takes over his days and creepy repetitive dreams fill his nights that ultimately lead him back to his log cabin hideout, Sara Laughs, in the woods of western Maine.Not long after his arrival, a combination of two [...]

    9. Lyn on said:

      “The muses are ghosts, and sometimes they come uninvited.” A very good ghost story.Stephen King’s 1999 novel about a lonely hamlet in western Maine is told with King’s rare gift for telling these kinds of stories. More than just a ghost story, the author fills his pastoral, suspenseful tale with generations of bad times coming down into a point on a lake, and a town that has some bad history and some secrets.“I think reality is thin, you know, thin as lake ice after a thaw, and we fil [...]

    10. Wordsmith Johnson on said:

      Easily my favorite Stephen King novel ever, and I've read a wide cross section of different eras of his stuff. This is a ghost story's about being haunted, both by spirits and by memories. It's a book about loss and grief, but also a suspenseful mystery with a super spooky atmosphere, set in a creepy, unincorporated and sparesely populated fading resort community with a dark historic past. The mystery and the hauntings are linked in with a child custody battle, complete with a nefarious old vill [...]

    11. Erin (PT) on said:

      Here's the thing about me and Stephen King: no matter how problematic and/or angry-making I find some of his work to be, the man knows how to tell a good story. I had read Bag of Bones before, when it was first published, but all I really remembered about it was that I found it an enjoyable enough story, but not one that was excellent enough to be particularly memorable. And, indeed, I found myself remembering very little of the story while rereading it this time around. Which, on the one hand, [...]

    12. Phrynne on said:

      736 pages, so not King's longest book but still a doorstop. I enjoyed it very much anyway and it was certainly a page turner. This is one of his ghostly, horror type stories and at times it was very spooky and frequently very gory. In fact very Stephen King. Not the best book I have read by him but still very worthy of 4 stars.

    13. Becky on said:

      I remember reading this when I was 16. My dad bought me the hardcover for my birthday, and I remember reading it on a plane. That's about all that I remember about it, though, other than a vague recollection of liking it, hence my pre- rating of 3 stars. Now, 16 years later (Please don't do the math. It will hurt me in my soul.), and I'm reading it again. I've picked this book up a few times over the past maybe two years, but each time I put it back down again. It just wasn't the right time. But [...]

    14. Autumn Doughton on said:

      This was a weird novel for me. For the first 450 pages or so I kept thinking that it was by leaps and bounds the best Stephen King book ever. But then things got strange in a way that only King's novels can and I was left feeling like maybe I'd been in a car accident but had blacked out and couldn't really remember the whole thing properly. I think that you either like Stephen King's stuff or you don't. I'm a fan of sci-fi/fantasy/borderline horror and I am a King fan. I have been reading him si [...]

      Y acaso la mayor bendición fue que nunca supimos que nos quedaba poco tiempoMuy buen libro de King. Tiene uno de los mejores comienzos que me tocó leer. El autor me transmitió la tristeza, la tragedia y la depresión del protagonista intensamente. Un excelente inicio de novela.El dolor del duelo es como un invitado borracho, cuando parece que se ha marchado vuelve a darte un último abrazo.Ya en la mitad las cosas se empiezan a poner un poco pesadas y repetitivas.

      3.5 StarsIn Bag of Bones, Mike Noonan, a bestselling author, simultaneously loses his wife Johanna and his ability to write much more than his name. Soon after, the night terrors begin, involving the couple’s lake house retreat dubbed Sara Laughs after a turn-of-the-century singer, and Noonan realizes the solitary cure lies in the confrontation. With tremendous trepidation, he faces the demons, which hold both his and Johanna’s inner peace hostage and, in the end, discovers when and why Sara [...]

      "Grief is like a drunken house guest, always coming back for one more goodbye hug."Bag of Bones focuses on the story of Mike Noonan, a best-selling writer who's wife unexpectedly passes away. Following her death, Mike suffers from writer's block and begins to have nightmares concerning their lakeside house, Sara Laughs. Mike decides he must go back to their lakeside house in order to confront his fears. Upon his arrival, he meets a beautiful single mother and her daughter, only to find out that [...]

      Slow moving. I quit halfway through, switched to an action novel which cleared my head and allowed me to continue the laborious trudge.The best thing about this novel, aside from reaching the end (660 pages… it could have been pared back to 450 and I would have been happy), was its intricacy. Almost everything tied in to the end. Of course, for a novelist like Stephen King, I would expect nothing less. However, I found the protag’s involvement left me feeling uneasy. Could Mike have figured [...]

      La morte come colpa e redenzione "E forse la nostra benedizione più grande era di non aver mai saputo quanto fosse breve il tempo"Meravigliosa discesa nei dolori del quotidiano, ove l'orrore si nasconde negli anfratti meno nascosti e la fragilità dei rapporti umani rappresenta solo una delle tante sfaccettature di una realtà amara da fare propria per non soccombere.L'omertà in cui serpeggia il male va a braccetto con la paura del giudizio; la verità si nasconde nelle leggende e la si cela, [...]

      Actual 3.5Reflections of Peter Straub's 'Ghost Story' ran through my thoughts as I read this one. And not only did they work together on some novels but King has mentioned how much he admires 'Ghost Story', so maybe? This was great writing with an interesting plot being weaved to form a masterful picture, but I think it is a picture that brings nothing new to the table and it was too long in the weaving. Bag of Bones was a labor to read but overall was still good.

    21. Colin Andersen on said:

      Probably, for me, the best Stephen King horror novel. I am not easily scared by ghosts and other paranormal entities since they mostly live within the pages of horror fiction. But this one has sections, like the ghost that shuffles the magnets stuck on a freeze, that gave me an instant on-rush of fear-hormones. A brick-sized page turner!

    22. Kelly on said:

      Described as a haunting love story, it certainly delivers. Instantly engrossing, King grabs you from the first line and keeps you, squirming and uncomfortable, until well after you’ve closed the book. Bag of Bones keeps you wondering what happens next. King’s style of writing is sharp and graceful. The past entwines so completely with the present the change is subtle and quiet. The setting is believable and easy to imagine you live there. The pace is a bit slow at first, but picks up quickly [...]

    23. Chris_P on said:

      Every once in a while I need to read a good ghost story. One with ectoplasmic ghosts as well as ghosts in the form of memories of what is dead and gone, and a protagonist caught in their web. One in which nostalgia, melancholy, love, fear and suspense all intertwine to create a good enough fire in which to destroy my precious brain cells. Bag Of Bones duly delivered.It took me exactly two days to finish it and that says a lot. I've discovered lately that King's novels have lost their power over [...]

      I cheated in my Stephen King chronological reread series. Desperation was up next, but I really dislike that book, okay? I wanted to get to a King novel I love before the year’s end, so here we are.This was my third reread of Bag of Bones; this time it hit me deeper than ever before. Now that I’m familiar with Kong’s entire oeuvre, connections big and small (Thad Beaumont gets a shoutout, there’s a scene with Ralph Roberts and Norris Ridgewick, names like Polly Chalmers and Bannerman are [...]

      Holy shit! I read this one when it was first published!I think I was going through a "I should read something other than romance" phase. If I remember correctly I was annoyed that the possibilities for romance in the book didn't exactly work out. What the hell did I expect? Jude fucking Deveraux?

    26. Glenn Rolfe on said:

      Bag of Bones is one of King's bigger books (just over 700 pages). As with another of his larger novels that I read and loved recently (The Tommyknockers), this one veers off maybe a tick too long here and there, but here, the off-trail jaunts accomplish what they should-they draw you deeper into the story. And what a deep tale it is.“Then I got back to the house, and all I worried about was my story and the people in it--bags of bones which were putting on flesh daily.”As a writer, I fell in [...]

      WOW!! This is by far, in my opinion Stephen King's best book! It was recommended to me by my Mom, who's a big Stephen King fan!Bag of Bones is about famous bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who lost his wife 4 years ago to a car collision. Mike who is still grieving, is struggling with Writer's Block and has returned to his Summerhouse in Western Maine, which he calls Sara Laughs, to try to find some peace and quiet. But since returning to his Summerhouse, he is plagued by nightmares and ghosts [...]

      Man, when this guy is good, he is really good. Bag of Bones exemplifies what I love about Stephen King. Characters you care about, and marvelously poignant observances, be they on human nature or a simple description or simile.This isn't much of a horror novel. Although there is one particular passage that caused me a little lost sleep, this is a story of grief, love, and revenge. It's a ghost story (this is the horror and revenge part) that concerns a writer facing writer's block following the [...]

      “When the story starts going sour, bring on the man with the gun.” Gory I read that quick. Haunted houses, small town secrets, mad old villains, maidens in distress, magic in the air and one lonely widowed writer. Oh yes, there was plenty to keep those pages turning/audiobook flowing. Love King books.
