Lisey’s Story is a little more out there than I usually like to go.  I prefer horror, thrillers, or straight up fiction to fantasy/otherworldly books.  That being said, King reaches new depths in his latest novel, particularly in the non-fantasy scenes, which are centred on family: sisters, abusive childhoods, and marriage.  The book is in many ways an homage to his wife Tabitha, and their long-lasting marriage, and it makes the reader aspire to have that same sort of all-enduring love.
