Paperback, 336 pages
I picked up Please Ignore Vera Dietz after reading King’s Ask the Passengers and loving it. I’m also really excited about the release of Reality Boy (October 22) and made the decision to read as much of King’s backlist as I possibly could.
Please Ignore Vera Dietz was one of those mystery-type reads where I wished I was the kind of reader who can peek ahead to the end, figure out what happened, and then go back and read the rest of the story. But since I’m not one of those readers, I commend King’s writing style — the jumps between points in Vera’s early relationship with Charlie, her next door neighbor who recently died under mysterious circumstances, and the present.
