Anyone read Desperation? Friend of mine wants to buy it for me (we're huge SK fans) but is it worth it?
One another note, while browsing the bookshop today I saw the back cover of Desperation had recommendations of the other SK novels to read, or if you had read them that you would like this one. Very clever marketing.

I liked Desperation.  It's a little odd but enjoyable.  There is also a companion book written as Bachman called Regulators.  Both books are worth a read for any King fan.

Neither of those were my favorites, although I liked Desperation a bit more. I thought the experiment was fun though (a "shared world" between "two" different authors).
