Revival was book molasses for me. It took me forever to get through it. It was a good read, but mostly because it was written by Stephen King. There is something about his writing that just feels so darn right. It's a place I love to be.
Unfortunately, my expectations stemmed entirely from this blurb:
This rich and disturbing novel spans five decades on its way to the most terrifying conclusion Stephen King has ever written.
I spent the entire book longing for the end which is never a good sign no matter how you look at it.
But like I said, it was a good read overall. There were some great moments, and I did enjoy the ending once I finally got there. Revival was a better read than [b:Mr. Mercedes|18775247|Mr. Mercedes (Bill Hodges Trilogy, #1)|Stephen King|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1403347795s/18775247.jpg|26680281], too, so there's that if you were wondering.
If you are behind on your Stephen King catalog, this probably isn't one you need to pick up right away, but I think any Stephen King fan will read this for the obvious reason.
