Duma Key by Stephen King
From Publishers Weekly
In bestseller King's well-crafted tale of possession and redemption, Edgar Freemantle, a successful Minnesota contractor, barely survives after the Dodge Ram he's driving collides with a 12-story crane on a job site. While Freemantle suffers the loss of an arm and a fractured skull, among other serious injuries, he makes impressive gains in rehabilitation. Personality changes that include uncontrollable rages, however, hasten the end of his 20-year-plus marriage. On his psychiatrist's advice, Freemantle decides to start anew on a remote island in the Florida Keys. To his astonishment, he becomes consumed with making art—first pencil sketches, then paintings—that soon earns him a devoted following. Freemantle's artwork has the power both to destroy life and to cure ailments, but soon the Lovecraftian menace that haunts Duma Key begins to assert itself and torment those dear to him. The transition from the initial psychological suspense to the supernatural may disappoint some, but even those few who haven't read King (Lisey's Story) should appreciate his ability to create fully realized characters and conjure horrors that are purely manmade. (Jan. 22)
Great book, but I am a big Stephen King fan, I love his way of writting, he pulls you into the book, you are there, and just want to read more and more and feel sad when the story ends, that is what happened to me in this book too, I could not lay it down.
Edgar Freemantle is an construction worker who has a terrible accident and lose his arm and many more injuries, he goes to Florida where he rents "Big Pink" and he meets the wonderful Wireman and picks up drawing again and later also painting, his paintings come to life as he made them to me, question is, does he paint them or ??? curious?? read it!
