Now this is a book I always rave on about to people in the hope that they will give it a try! I was an avid King fan, but really only his horror stuff, until my friend decided to give me this book in installments, like a serial if you will. I was hooked within a few pages, and constantly harassing my friend for my next "fix". It got to the point where my brother kicked in my bedroom door because he could hear me sobbing my heart out, and he thought something terrible was happening to me! In actual fact, the lead character was being taken to the electric chair and comforting the guards who were putting him to death! I could barely breathe! Who would have thought King (in fact any author) could convey such strong emotions through the page and affect the reader in such an extreme way? It was so well written, and such a departure from his usual fare, that even the film based on the book was excellent! If anyone was to read only one book in their lifetime, this is it!

This was the best book I ever read, it's not like his books but it's worth it. The end of this book can make you cry. It tell of a mentally handicapped man with a gift of healing. But since he's black and it's 1932 when he failed to heal two girls and was found by their bodies everyone presumed he killed them. It tells of the unfairness of the world. Basically its the Stephen King version of Forest Gump and Rainman. If you likes either of those you'd love this. The movie rocked too.
