Notes to Time, change, and the King

* Why Christine? It was recommended by a King-fan coworker. I told her that I'd read these--
Salem's Lot
Night Shift
The Stand
Danse Macabre
The Tommyknockers
Eyes of the Dragon
Needful Things
Four Past Midnight
Different Seasons
On Writing
The Colorado Kid
Lisey's Story
Under the Dome
-and asked what she thought I should pick up next. (The obvious answer is The Shining, but that's just too scary. I read twenty pages once, just like I saw ten minutes of the movie once, and I couldn't deal.) I was skeptical about Christine, because the premise is just so ridiculous, but she was right that it wouldn't take many pages before I gave up my disbelief.
