Of all of Stephen King's books this one was the least frightening to me at first- I thought hey this isn't so bad. It begins with a man suffering a brain injury on construction site that leaves him unable to continue, he's also seeing a therapist due to black out spells and supreme rage. His therapist suggests a change of venue might be good for him. So the man decides to move to Duma Key in Florida. When he gets there, he discovers he has an artistic talent he never had before. Okay so none of this is scary, right. Yes that is what I thought too, this book's not scary at all. But I was wrong. It just takes awhile to get there maybe about a third of the way into the book, but then oh my lord is it scary! I loved it. i don't want to give away too much of it, but let's just say when things begin to happen like herons flying upside down over one part of the island, this is a good sign of what is actually going on here. It was so suspenseful and a great story. It was really hard to put down. And now i just discovered there is a part two to Duma Key. Wow, I've got to read it. Check it out for a good read.

I liked this story quite a bit, and rank it among my favorites of his novels that I've read. This was written after King's own serious accident and you can tell that infuses his main character. There is less gore in this story than in many of his earlier works, and the story has a slowly building sense of supernatural mystery that I really enjoyed. The ending is typical of King's style, but I felt a bit dissapointed in that. He built such an intriguing mystery around an evil force but the evil itself was not explained in a way that fully satisfied my curiosity. Still, it was a decent ending and I think endings can be the hardest part of any story to write. I did really like all the characters and the final scene involving the hero's daughter was very effective. Overall, this is a very intriguing story with a strong mood of supernatural mystery.

It’s been quite a while since the last time I read a novel on the scale of Duma Key. At well over seven hundred pages in length, it’s not a read for the feint of heart. To tell the truth, that is about the only aspect of it that seems daunting, or perhaps even a touch terrifying. Don’t get me wrong, the story is well written with a depth to it the hints at the way a painter layers on glaze after glaze of color to bring a painting to life.

There’s a hint of Lovecraft in Duma Key, in the telling and the story’s soul. It follows three distinct time frames: the story of a little girl as she’s recovering from a head injury, the story Edgar Freemantle rebuilds his life after a debilitating accident, and the time of the narrator, who also happens to be Edgar. The first two tie together in an intertwining thread that follows Edgar and the little girl’s journey to rediscover themselves, sometimes literally, through art. But both paths move past the mundane application of shape and form into something… else. The time of the narrator foreshadows, sometimes almost too much, what is to come. Of course, this is a Stephen King novel, so any mention of something happening to a character is likely an ill portent to say the least.

Overall, I would say this is a good read and would definitely recommend it. There are definitely scarier stories out there, and more horrifying, but sometimes that’s the point.

I wanted to write a review, because those that I read didn't touch on what I found most enjoyable. It's the characters. They're complicated, knowable, interesting, admirable: all of which makes this one of my favorites - in any genre. I very highly recommend it. Itself you loved the 2 books of The Black House, you'll certainly enjoy this compelling book.

As a reader that loves Stephen King, I especially enjoyed Duma Key. It had the elements that I look for in his works. I want to be totally drawn into the character, and to find out what makes him tick. With Edgar Freemantle, the main person in this novel, Mr. King certainly accomplished this. I am not going to write a long drawn out review, just to say that if you generally like Mr. King's earlier novels, such as "It" or "The Stand", then I think you would want to read this one. As a matter of fact, when you are finished with the book, you might feel that you know Edgar, Wireman, and Jack very well, and might wish that you too, had friends such as these three guys, who will stick with you through thick and thin. It's a book about a man who suffers great misfortunes in his life through a very bad accident, and then moves to Florida (Duma Key), and reinvents who he is through a newly discovered gift he has, the ability to paint and create amazing pieces. After that, the mystery begins. Enjoy!!!!!!

This is one of the better Stephen King books I've read lately (I was not particularly fond of the Mr. Mercedes trilogy). One of the things I liked best was there was not a lot of filler like there is in some of his novels. Even though the book was almost 800 pages long, very little if anything needed to be cut. There was one loose end that still bothers me, though. Edgar made a drawing of Perse early on, which he put in his closet along with the drawing of Candy Brown. Why didn't he try to destroy Perse by burning that drawing? It might not have worked, but especially once the deaths started happening, that would have been the first thing I tried. I read all the way to the end expecting King to bring it up but he never did.

Other than that, and the fact that King drags us through his misery once again from his horrendous accident that occurred some years ago - something he has a habit of doing in the books he has written since then - I very much enjoyed this book. I don't often give four stars. This one deserves it.
