I just finished reading Stephen King's latest novel, Insomnia. It is set in the town of Derry, Maine, the town that is associated with another great novel: It. Only hints of the events in It appear in Insomnia. This novel deals with different dark forces that live in this town.
Insomnia is about an old man named Ralph Roberts. Contrary to what the first hundred pages of this novel lead you to believe, this is not a book about not sleeping. It is about seeing all the things that the normal eye cannot pick up. But more important, this novel sets the stage for the fourth installment in the continuing Dark Tower series, for which we fans of Stephen King have been anxiously waiting. When all is said and done, this is the typical Stephen King novel: long, outstanding, and leaving you terribly upset that you read the last page. .
