I miss the /old/ knife-wielding maniac

While I'm reviewing books, I should point out that I read Stephen King's new novella, "Gingerbread Girl" and was pretty disappointed. It was ok, but it was pretty much the same storyline of his "Lunch at the Gotham Cafe"

1) Something bad happens in the main character's life.
2) Divorce.
3) Main character creates coping mechanism.
4) Main character has to fight a knife-wielding maniac.

I really liked "Lunch at the Gotham Cafe" (I listened to the audio version so many times I can quote the opening few paragraphs), which is probably what made "Gingerbread Girl" so lame. It tried to do everything that Lunch did, and didn't do it as well.

    Imagine that you are one of those church bulletins that says "I would like a pastor to call me," except that I am ticking off "I would like you to call me and recite the first couple paragraphs," instead.

    Also, are you a pastor too? top
