"A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far--a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes" -- ""Wake up, genius." So begins King's instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn't published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel. Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he's released from prison after thirty-five years" --… (mais)

Another great, vivid, suspenseful novel by Mr King. Sequel to Mr. Murder, and I thought this book was a bit better. ( )
  usuallee | Oct 7, 2021 |
I usually find middle novels don't hold up. Usually they serve as connective tissue between the beginning in book one and the big pay off of book three. That's not the case with this, the second book in the Bill Hodges trilogy.

I found the pace of this one much faster, much more enjoyable and, though the character motives were a touch heavy handed--with Morris consistently blaming all his misfortune on others (though, to be honest, I know far too many people like that, so this one actually rang quite true), and Pete, who is altruistic to a fault--but even with these minor quibbles, overall, this novel just ticked along nicely.

Which is a good thing and a bad thing.

Stephen King, at this point, could very likely put a little "TM" beside his name, because his output of a couple of books a year is expected, and many of his characters seem remarkably familiar, even though we've never met them before.

So, when I pick up a King novel, unless he's gone completely off the rails like he's done very few times (The Tommyknockers, Lisey's Story--yeah, yeah, I know, but it was still boring-- and Doctor Sleep), I'll always find something to love, some character that I will enjoy, and the story will tick along nicely.

But if the man's on, then there's no one better. Much of the time when he was on can be listed in the first few books of his, but he's had his moments lately, as well, most notably in 11/22/63.

What I'm finding is, he's pushing less and less, relying on his reliable, intuitive grasp of story and character more and more, and giving us novels like this one, that are fun, entertaining, but give no hint to the master that could have done so much more.

I'm hoping the glimpse we got at the end to foreshadow the final book pays off. There's a lot he can do there. Let's see if he decides to push hard, or just be old reliable.

Either way, you know damn well I'm going to read it. ( )

I really loved the inclusion of the love of an author's work.
The audiobook narrator is fantastic. ( )

Morris Bellamy is so angry with author John Rothstein. His character "Jimmy Gold" has sold out and there are no more books being written to change that. Morris has found the author and his treasure trove of writings that are in moleskine notebooks in the author's safe in his home in New Hampshire.
Morris then kills the author and collects the notebooks and the cash that is in said safe.
He then hides the chest in the woods behind a houst e that he lived in in his youth. Are there more Jimmy Gold stories in those notebooks? He will find that out at a later time, as the murder of the author would make it impossible to bring that evidence forward.
Morris then gets arrested and put in jail for what seems like a lifetime for a different crime.
Decades later, Peter Saubers is a high school student living in the house that Morris lived in as a youth. One evening, he goes to the river and finds the chest buried under a tree. Pete is also a fan of the Jimmy Gold series and realizes what he has found. But the notebooks are secondary to the cash in envelopes in the chest also.
His father was injured in the Mr. Mercedes killings, and the family has been struggling financially after the injury. Peter finds a way to provide the cash slowly to his family to get them back into an OK state.
Morris gets released from prison early and goes in search of the chest with the treasured notebooks.

Re-enter Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney & Jerome Robinson from the Mr. Mercedes case.

This book grabbed me from the first pages. Draws you right in. Nothing surprises me about that, Mr. King in one of my absolute favorites. He still has it. ( )

Really waffled on whether to make this a 3 or 4 stars so I guess it's a 3.5 star for me. I liked the two stories: one starting in 1978 with Morris Bellamy and a couple of friends breaking into the home of author John Rothstein, who is rumored to have cash and private writings since retiring after a successful trilogy. Bellamy is a complete loser and ends up in jail, where he belongs, leaving his loot to be found by teenager, Pete Saubers, whose father was one of the rampage victims of Brady Hartfield (from Mr. Mercedes.) Besides living in the same house, Morris and Pete also share a passion for Rothstein's Jimmy Gold series and yearn for what happened after the trilogy. The real trouble starts when Morris is paroled and Pete's little sister needs money to pay for attending private school. Bill Hodges and his merry troop are almost an afterthought. ( )

L'une des révélations les plus électrisantes dans une vie de lecteur, c'est de découvrir qu'on est un lecteur — pas seulement capable de lire (ce que Morris savait déjà), mais amoureux de la lecture. Éperdument. Raide dingue. Le premier livre qui donne cette impression ne s'oublie jamais et chacune de ses pages semble apporter une nouvelle révélation une révélation qui brûle et qui enivre : Oui ! C'est ça ! Oui ! Je l'avais vu aussi ! Et, bien sûr : C'est exactement ce que je pense ! C'est ce que je RESSENS !
Un bon romancier ne guide pas ses personnages, il les suit. Un bon romancier ne crée pas les événements de son histoire, il les regarde se dérouler et ensuite il les écrit. Un bon romancier finit par réaliser qu'il est secrétaire, et non pas Dieu.
Son aspiration principale, c'était de lire de la fiction, puis d'essayer d'analyser ce qu'il avait lu en l'intégrant à un contexte plus vaste.
Y a des conneries, c'est pas des conneries.
Non. J'allais dire que son œuvre a changé ma vie mais c'est faux. Je ne crois pas qu'un ado ait déjà une vie à changer. J'ai juste eu dix-huit ans le mois dernier. Je crois que ce que je veux dire, c'est que son œuvre a changé mon cœur.
