Oh god, I read that book from 6 p.m. on Saturday to around 1 a.m. on Sunday. Needless to say, I was awake for a while after that, thinking about the zombified cell-phone users swarming the East Coast.

Almost all of his books have exceeded my expectations - I'm on #4 of the Dark Tower series, and loving it.
