Your “comfort” book.
If you were to ask me to list my favourite authors Stephen King would probably be at the top. However even though he is one of my favourite authors I have only finished a few of his books, The Green Mile and Pet Sematary being two of them. In fact I have given up on more of his book than I have finished.
But Duma Key is different. Duma Key is the reason why Stephen King is one of my favourite authors. I love this book. I love this book so much that it literally went everywhere with me for a year. Every time I had a free moment I would pull this book out and read a few pages.
I think the reason why I love this book, is that even though it is a horror and at some points is quite terrifying. Stephen King has managed to make this book feel warm and sunny and not at all scary.
