Mr Mercedes was disappointing, so I was afraid this book would be like it, but it wasn’t 😏 Finders Keepers has everything that lacked in first book: surprise and good characters 😊
John Rothstein, creator of Jimmy Gold, hasn’t published a book for years. Morris Bellamy, a fan, doesn't like Jimmy's fate in the last book, so he pays a visit to the writer, steals the cash and some notebooks (that contain at least one more Gold novel) from his safe 🔪
Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds a trunk with money and some notebooks, stumbling across a dangerous secret 😱
I quickly noticed that Finders Keepers’ characters were better than Mr Mercedes' because they were real, complex, and didn't have clichés around their lives 😁 Morris was an awesome villain, whose obsession was explored in a gripping way; Peter was a brave, selfless boy, with whom King also did a great job 👍
I liked to meet Jerome and Bill again, but I truly loved to see the evolution of Holly with her issues 😍 She's one of my favorite King characters now.
This book was an enthralling, surprising slow burner. The first two parts, where the present and the past were told at the same time, were calm, compelling and intriguing because of the characters - that's how Stephen King writes 💁
The third and excellent part took my breath way 😱 I was completely on edge, I couldn't stop reading. Non-stop action, the characters running from a place to another... Brilliant 👌😍
There were still some intriguing details about Brady Hartsfield, and I can't bloody wait for End of Watch after everything that happened here 😵
Finders Keepers is a unique thiller about literature, the love for books, and how it can influence someone’s life - there’s no way of not loving that 😊 It goes straight to my Top 10 King's books.
