Book Thirty Five.

The easy to read horror of Stephen King make his books a guilty pleasure of mine. This one wasn't the best, though. King is known to waffle on a bit occasionally, but that meant this book took ages to get going. Also, as he originally wrote this under his Richard Bachman pseudonym it had a couple of (now) cringe-worthy references to King himself. Awkward. And although setting the book in Connecticut, he couldn't resist a trip to Maine. I'm actually surprised the main character didn't become a writer at the end...

I remember this one. Apparently it was originally a secret that this was written by King because he wanted to see if his books were popular because of his by-then famous name. But, it read like King's work and like you say, is not very good.

It's the one with the pimples popping right? I remember that making my skin crawl.

Yep. Hence raking in more money by re-releasing them under his real name.

And yes. There is the guy who is described as 'like pizza falling off his face'...

'Blaze' by Bachman is quite good
