Author: Stephen King
The Beginning: In one way, at least, our lives really are like movies. The main cast consists of your family and friends. The supporting cast is made up of neighbors, co-workers, teachers, and daily acquaintances. There are also bit players: the supermarket checkout girl with the pretty smile, the friendly bartender at the local watering hole, the guys you work out with at the gym three days a week. And there are thousands of extras -- those people who flow through every life like water through a sieve, seen once and never again.
The Friday 56: "You don't know. You don't understand. It was terrible because it was no one's fault. Certainly not George Barton's. He simply had a seizure."
Comment: I have no idea yet where this novel is headed, but it's been impossible to put down so far!
