Only managed to read one book this week (must read faster), but am about a third of the way through Lolita. Lolita is wonderfully written, it actually is a great book, if you can get over the subject matter enough to see that the book is well written.
Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
ok thats it, I give up on King for awhile, the only reason I finished this was because I had more than half of it finished before it really started to go downhill. Just too predictable, characters made no sense in what they did and I found the main characters just full of cliches that I thought didn't work. The bad guy in the story was like a cardboard cutout written by someone who just finished reading about serial killers/mass murderers and decided to put all of their traits together into one person. And the ending...setting up for a poor sequel with the bad guy?? Pass

I have pretty much lost all faith in King's books right now. Which is a shame since I have bee a fan since I was probably 12.
This week I am going to try to finish Lolita and I also started to read Uncle Tom's Cabin. And at 522 pages I ore than likely wont finish it this coming week :p
