THE TOMMYKNOCKERS by Stephen King

I progress through a book slowly. I probably read slowly but I think the biggest reason I slowly go from beginning to end of a book is that I am always juggling more than one book.

THE TOMMYKNOCKERS was 747 pages. That is a lot of pages for a person like me. I forgot when I started the book, but it wasn’t last week or I don’t even think it was last month – but it may have been.

As you may recall I was had THE TOMMYKNOCKERS book with me when I went to my neurologist and he said he read it also and he gave me a very quick short sentence description and from the beginning to the ending. I walked out of the doctor’s office telling Anna, “Well, so much for reading the book now.”

But I did. The well meaning doctor did not tell me the details – the details would have taken all day. That is what is so good about a Stephen King book is the endless details that do not mean anything much, but it is entertaining to be exposed to.

It is about a flying saucer that landed in Maine (Stephen King’s home state) millions of years ago, the discovery, the “dig” or the excavation of the space craft and the changes of the local citizens during this time.

Some parts of the book got a little far-fetched for my comprehension and I had to back up and reread some segments more than once, and I still wasn’t sure I got the jest.

I like the way Stephen King can put himself into each character. I think he magically possesses the character he just made up and thinks like that person thinks. If there are two people in a conflict he possesses each of them at different time – first he takes character number one and possesses him and puts words with feelings from mind, then he retorts what character number one said when he possesses character number two. It is almost as if he is creating lives and then plays uses them for a chess game.

The details and the characters are done so well – to fit profiles of people so well it is just worth reading. It was a good book.

My favorite books by King are "It" and "The Stand." "It" is over a thousand pages, but so worth it. I just fell in love with how he is with the kids in the the book. Last year, King won some award for writing, and some snobby types protested. I thought he deserved it. The man knows people and human nature and communicates it so well.

I read "The Stand" and it was good while I read it - but I have a bad retention and later I found I get it confused with another one of King's books, which I can't recall... surprise.
"It" I haven't read. I think on the cover is a evil looking clown - correct? I may read it someday based on what you said.
You are right, Stephen King is an excellent story teller and know people's characteristics... and it all comes off like he is sharing all this with YOU... not 40,000,000 people - just YOU.

I didn't know Paris Hilton sung for a living. Well, at least she came up the hard way, paying those blood, sweat, and tears dues.

I don't know about what to suggest for Christmas, I can't even figure that out for my family.

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
