Convince us to read the book: Everyone should definitely read this book because of the amazing writing by King. She takes this great story and somehow brings it to another level.

Memorable or Forgettable: This book was very memorable because it is one of the first books that has really changed the way I think in many ways and I would guess it would do the same for a lot of people.
