Here is Stephen King's most gripping and unforgettable novel -- a tale of grief and lost love's enduring bonds, of haunting secrets of the past, and of an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire. Four years after the sudden death of his wife, forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan is still grieving. Unable to write, and plagued by vivid nightmares set at the western Maine summerhouse he calls Sara Laughs, Mike reluctantly returns to the lakeside getaway. There, he finds his beloved Yankee town held in the grip of a powerful millionaire, Max Devore, whose vindictive purpose is to take his three-year-old granddaughter, Kyra, away from her widowed young mother, Mattie. As Mike is drawn into Mattie and Kyra's struggle, as he falls in love with both of them, he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations and escalating terrors. What are the forces that have been unleashed here -- and what do they want of Mike Noonan? It is no secret that King is one of our most mesmerizing storytellers. In Bag of Bones, he proves to be one of our most moving as well.

Hadn't read any King books in decades when my daughter mentioned she was reading this. She has good taste, so I ordered it!
Kept me interested enough to neglect my housework and farm chores. A couple of shallow characters but, oh well, still a good read.

another great book by king
This is another of Kings stories that doesn't follow the bogeyman tradition, its a very in depth story, and I thought it was a sad story, but a good one. It takes a few pages to get into the meat of the book, but it is more than worth it, there is alot of "leading up to" in the book and it ends wonderfully.

One of his best
I am a huge fan of Mr. King's and have been reading him since I graduated to more adult reading at the age of eleven. This is one of his best books. The story is masterfully written, the character is likeable. I particularly enjoyed this one because i too am a writer and everything the main character said about how he came to an idea, and how he executed said idea spoke right to the heart of me. It's also a very suspenseful, scary ghost story. I read it in two days and have read it three or four more times since them and it's just as entertaining everytime. If you are a fan of Mr. King's and haven't yet read this please read it, you won't be dissapointed.
