" Lisey's Story isn't even really about Lisey. It's a love letter to Stephen King, from Stephen King, using his wife's voice. So basically, a love letter to himself. I knew going in that this book wasn't horror/thriller and was fine with that. Dolores Claiborne is actually one of my fave King novels, but Lisey's story is just a self-adulating, narcissistic snooze fest. Nothing original or captivating in the 500+ pages. King is so famous that his editor won't touch a word of his work. This book needs a few hundred pages of trimming down to make it more palatable. "
