I first read this book when i was around 12. My dad gave me it to shut me up, and it worked! I then went on to try some of his other SK novels (without his knowledge!) and fell into a wonderful, scary world of which I still have nightmares about almost 15 years later. I kept that original copy of Eyes of the Dragon, and gone back to it on numerous occasions, and each time I have appreciated it in a different way, picking up on new nuances which keep it fresh. I know some people were deeply disappointed with this story, but I don't understand why. Yes, it is a sort of fairytale, but is that such a bad thing? SK has written lots of different stories in lots of different ways, and not everyone will like it (I can think of a couple of his novels which I didn't like), but each to their own! I would recommend this book if you would like a fun, easy read which doesn't tax you too much, and also as an introduction to SK in general as it eases you into his wonderful imagination without scaring you off. x

one of the worst books I've ever read. The book felt like a four year old had tried to combine Harry Potter with the Lord of the Rings. The plot was slow and uneventful. The characters were all given names that I could have surpassed in creativity. I'll be honest, I love Stephen King. He's my favorite author. But this book was so bad I would prefer to eat another habanero pepper, then reread five pages of this book. DO NOT READ IT!!!

Ok so here is my first ever book review, at least since any grade school book report about a million years ago. First though, a Confession! I haven't actually completed reading Duma Key. I've made it a good deal of the way thru, and some good things are happening, so I wanted to put down my thoughts on this novel so far as I am enjoying it very much.
