I received Stephen King's Cell from Amazon yesterday and I had to stop reading everything else I'm in the middle of to start it. Oh, it is so nice and violent - just everything you wish a King book to be.
I don't think I would be a writer if it weren't for Stephen King. I was hooked on his novels at a very young age (I read Salem's Lot when I was in the fourth grade) and I've been reading ever since. I have no idea how much growing up around the Bangor area influenced my exposure to him and his books, but I assume it had a major part. Now, if I had grown up around, say, Jackie Collins, god only knows what I would have wanted to be when I grow up - a Hollywood Husband, I suppose.
