Publisher's Summary

A "wondrously frightening" (Publishers Weekly) tale of terror and number-one national best seller about a writer's pseudonym that comes alive and destroys everyone on the path that leads to the man who created him.
Thad Beaumont would like to say he is innocent. He'd like to say he has nothing to do with the twisted imagination that produced his best-selling novels. He'd like to say he has nothing to do with the series of monstrous murders that keep coming closer to his home. But how can Thad deny the ultimate embodiment of evil that goes by the name he gave it - and signs its crimes with Thad's bloody fingerprints?
The Dark Half is "a chiller" (The New York Times Book Review), so real and fascinating that you'll find yourself squirming in Stephen King's heart-stopping, blood-curdling grip - and loving every minute of it.

Sparrows

I have read quite a few Stephen King Novels, I've listened to just about the same amount. Through all those stories I hadn't read this one, I just couldn't find it until just last year. Sure, I have seen it recommended on Amazon and the like, but I prefer books to digital especially where my favorite authors are concerned.
I was reading Needful Things and finally was simply too interested in Allan Pangborn's involvement with Thad Beaumont to ignore The Dark Half any longer, and boy am I glad I did.
After buying a copy of the book at a used book shop that I came across, along with the audiobook (obviously) I have found my new favorite King novel.
As usual, the writing is superb. Filled with awesome characters and Allen's shadow puppetry, where can one go wrong with this book. Not only that, but the story has one of the Darkest tones King has written.
Let mw tell you, buy this book. If you love old or new Stephen King you will be riveted by this creepy book.
Also, "The sparrows are flying again."

Highly Enjoyable!

I've heard it said that this was Stephen King exercising his anger for being unmasked as Richard Bachman and it would surely appear that this was so. What a tremendously creative way to express yourself. Awesome!

Grover Gardner did a wonderful job. I especially liked his George Stark.
