Two years after his death, Lisey sorts through her husband's papers and her own shrouded memories. Following the clues Scott left her and her own instincts, she embarks on a journey that risks both her life and her sanity. She will face Scott's demons as well as her own, traveling into the past and into Boo'ya Moon, the seductive and terrifying world he'd shown her. There lives the power to heal, and the power to destroy. Lisey Landon is a richly wrought character of charm and complexity, of realized inner strength and redoubtable humor. As the central figure she drives the story, and the story is so vividly textured, the reader will draw in the perfumed air of Boo'ya Moon, will see the sunlight flood through the windows of the Scott's studio--or the night press against them. Her voice will be clear in your ear as you experience the fear and the wonder. If your heart doesn't hitch at the demons she faces in this world and the other, if it doesn't thrill at her courage and endurance, you're going to need to check with a cardiologist, first chance.

Lisey's story is not one of King's finer reads. It was slow-going getting into the plot and I hoped it would become more worthwhile by being a major tie-in to the Dark Tower series but this book isn't very relevant to that. There are elements to this story that are very interesting but there's so much to read through just to get to those parts

A very difficult book to read as it jumps around way to much to be able to keep track of what is happening - is a very slow read.

Lisey's Story started off slow at first, but once you started to understand the characters it was hard to put down.

I absolutely fell in love with this book and the characters. This is by far my favourite Stephen King novel.
