    It took me awhile to get into this one, mainly because the screenplay format is really not something I m used to But once I got the hang of it I quickly fell in love with this story I love that it all takes place within such a short time, it made my heart race and my pulse pound in the best way possible It felt like we were in a race against the clock and it was quite thrilling I thought the story was deliciously creepy and horrifying too, some parts had shivers racing down my spine If it w It took me awhile to get into this one, mainly because the screenplay format is really not something I m used to But once I got the hang of it I quickly fell in love with this story I love that it all takes place within such a short time, it made my heart race and my pulse pound in the best way possible It felt like we were in a race against the clock and it was quite thrilling I thought the story was deliciously creepy and horrifying too, some parts had shivers racing down my spine If it wasn t for my struggle with the format this definitely would have been a 5 star read for me

    I remember seeing Storm of the Century the movie back when it first came out and really, really loving it I ve seen it a few times since then, but I d yet to read the screenplay, so I did I have to say that I wasn t disappointed I don t know if I would say that either one is better than the other Each version brings something to the table The movie version has creepy perfect Colm Feore, and while the book has stills from the movie, they just don t do him justice And the movie has effec I remember seeing Storm of the Century the movie back when it first came out and really, really loving it I ve seen it a few times since then, but I d yet to read the screenplay, so I did I have to say that I wasn t disappointed I don t know if I would say that either one is better than the other Each version brings something to the table The movie version has creepy perfect Colm Feore, and while the book has stills from the movie, they just don t do him justice And the movie has effects and interpretation that King left open, and in this case, because he wrote it with that in mind, it adds to the whole rather than being one of those annoying detractions from the perfect as is text that movie adaptations usually are But the book has little bits of King s personality shining right through it, and the sections of information and direction, which I heard in King s voice OK, not his REAL voice, but the one that I hear in my head for him is that weird, that I replace his voice with a made up version are riddled with mentions of other works Dolores Claiborne and The Shining, for instance and humorous asides, etc These lighten the mood, but make us feel like we re floating along watching the action from above while the clouds narrate The book was definitely all King His hands are all over this puppy I don t know why I m saying that like it s not obvious, but for some reason, I just felt like a screenplay would feel different It was like seeing everything in my head as the movie went along, which is quite possibly the point, although a lot of King s books read like movies But this one felt different to me for another reason I m just not really able to put my finger on Maybe it was just the format I m so used to his novels and the personal feel of them that this felt like King dictating to someone else and that person writing the words in their odd and unfamiliar handwriting Maybe I m not making any sense at all Could go either way I mean, you can see King s touch here simply in the dialogue One example is the way that the townspeople use each other s full names as casually as they d use nicknames It kind of gives it a realism informal formality that struck me as something that is as Maine Islander as saying ayuh But this is subtle, and probably lots of people find it annoying, but I loved it it was like a little enhancement that tipped the scales from being cliched patois to actual speech.Moving on, I have to say that I really love the character of Andre Linoge and no, NOT just because Colm Feore played him on TV but because he is really, really creepy and sinister and inevitable He drops into these people s lives with no explanation and just starts wreaking havoc at every turn He s horrible and cruel and evil, but he s also charming and funny and persuasive And I will just say that I love the Legion reference Legion is one of my favorite words and concepts, though that tidbit rarely makes it into everyday conversation, so when I see it I always get a little chill The last thing that I ll mention here is how much this story reminded me of Pet Sematary Both stories deal with the loss of a child, and both are very bleak stories without much hope of redemption, but they are also both compelling and great stories about the choices that must be made when there are no winning outcomes Nothing good can come of anything, but you must do something, so what do you do It s something worth thinking about I ll tell you I m not sorry to have been left out of the vote on this one, but I am glad that I read the book
