A Face in the Crowd

A Face in the Crowd - Stephen King,  Stewart O'Nan I really enjoy the way King writes. I could read about gardening if he wrote it. And enjoy it. I also love baseball, so I was predisposed to like this book much more than I did.

This story had an interesting idea that just didn't deliver for me. Sort of like when the rain hits in the 5th inning and leaves you looking out at the empty field. You love it at the park, but today the game just didn't happen. Not a memorable novella at all. Read "Throttle" instead. That one was the literary equivalent of a walk off home run to win the game in the 9th.
