Adventures in Reading: Stephen King’s “GERALD’S GAME”

  I've always really liked Stephen King, but, to be honest, I haven't read a ton of his stuff. Well, to be fair to myself, that statement is more or less relative to his output, I guess. I've probably read 10-15 of his books, more if you count his novella sized short stories, but when …

What does it even mean? How can you tell the difference between love and infatuation, as there is often a thin …
