" Ten years ago, Stephen King published Bag of Bones, a number one bestse ller, a tale of grie f, of love's enduring bonds, and the haunting secrets of the past . " Four years after the sudden death of his wife, forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan is unable to write and plagued by vivid nightmares set at the Maine summerhouse he calls Sara Laughs. Mike reluctantly returns to the lakeside getaway and finds his beloved Yankee town held in the grip of a vindictive millionaire, Max Devore, who is trying to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother, Mattie. As Mike is drawn into Mattie's struggle -- and begins to fall in love with her -- he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations and escalating terrors. What do the forces that have been unleashed here want of Mike Noonan?
Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
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.

Great Great Great!
This is one of King's best stories. It leaves you wanting to read more and more and more. Its got some spooky moments too it, and it brings you right in to the story. Read this Heart felt, romantic, thriller.

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.
