Mostly about Stephen King

My proofreading project finally arrived. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow.

I read about half of Children of God today. It's like reading it for the first time, because I remember almost nothing from when I read it a dozen or so years ago. On the other hand, Shannon just finished reading Firestarter (Stephen King), and I found that I remembered more about that book than I would have thought, given the fact that I last read it in grade school. Shannon said maybe I remembered because it scared me, but I don't remember being scared. I don't remember Firestarter being a very scary book at all, in fact. I don't remember Carrie being very scary, either. I read a lot of Stephen King when I was a kid, along with other horror books my mom had around. Dean Koontz and such. Starting in fourth grade, I read everything I could get my hands on, whether it was appropriate for my age or not.

Now, Cujo I remember being scary. The Shining, hella scary. The Dead Zone, not scary. It, scary. The Stand, not scary. I think that's all the Stephen King I've read, and I haven't read any of them within the last 15 years. I'm not really a horror fan. Even less so of movies. I don't enjoy being scared, especially by things jumping out at me, which is something they love to put in horror movies.

Back to Children of God. I'll enjoy my reading time before buckling down with the proofreading project.
