JDubs Review of “The Outsider” by Stephen King

I’m not gonna take a picture of the cover of the book because it was a Kindle. Boo! I’m not downloading a picture either because I’m quickly using up too much space in my WP media.

I can hear you… that’s not why you’re here… you want the review. No spoilers.

This is the same formula that has worked before and will probably continue to work again. The story is a different version of the same if that makes any sense. The formula goes back multiple decades. You would think eventually we’d catch on. But no … many like me are constant readers.

In short, this is about good versus evil. Kind of cops and robbers. Holly of “Finders Keepers” makes re-appearance. I am very empathetic to her character. The supernatural sci-fi-ish ending is on a lesser scale than most of his novels. Everyday flaws of human life juxtaposed against some force that we can only imagine. Do boogeymen exist? Yes! And in real life science explains most. In Mr. King’s work, there is no explanation.

Overall I would say four out of five stars ✨. A recommended read. If you happen to do so, let me know what you think. I’d love to have a virtual book club on this one.

As always more to come.
