As the master of the ghost story has done before, Stephen King's Bag of Bones gives the reader incredible suspense, bone-chilling jolts, and a cast of unforgettable characters and palpable setting. What makes Bag of Bones different, however, is the heart-retching story of a man's struggle with grief, longing, and his own ghosts amid a world saturated with the ghosts of the past. Anyone looking for a mystery, a ghost story, but most of all anyone looking for a beautiful, enduring love story, this one is for you.

Bag of Bones
I did not like this book at all. Most of the story plot dragged and at times it was painful to read. I did muster myself to finish it and the big shabang was mediocre at best. This book is not the best by Mr. King and overall it is not a worthwhile read.


Victor
Obviously one of the best books he has ever written. It's as close as you can get to King's best novel `It`. The story is amazing, the characters well-drawn and especially Michael Noonan is probably the best and most mature character King has ever created. Read it and you will experience what I want to say.


Jacqueline Shaw
Bag of Bones By Stephen King is the most interesting books that I have read. It keeps you wanting to know what happened and the ending was great. Even though what happened to Kyra's mother Mattie it was wonderful.


Dave
Perhaps Stephen King's most intimate story yet, he takes a different tone from the works he has done in the past, and does it brilliantly. I found this book a remarkable attempt of bringing the real world back into his stories, much like he has done for Rose Madder. Most of all Bag of Bones is a real page turner which keeps one guessing the truth until the last twenty pages. Among his best yet, and highly recommended
