Haven't yet made it to halfway (300something pages in). King writes popular fiction, so he's all over the place point-of-view-wise. Deep 3rd with one character, then another smack in the middle for a paragraph or sentence, then omniscient with some foreshadowing. And you know what? It's positively riveting. I do so enjoy watching the characters' world unravel at such an alarming rate. LOL. And I also love how King can totally mess with his readers by having a dirty villain do something totally sweet (like thinking a hug from a little kid is one of the best times of his life). The characters are real, and the good guys are flawed--something I appreciate, but many romance readers do not.
I will say I'm finding this one much easier to keep up with than, say, The Stand. When I read that one way-back-when, I had a hard time keeping track of the different characters in each chapter. Transitions have gotten much smoooother since then.
Romance is sexy!
