My most recent King was It, and the one thing i kept thinking as I was reading it was what a monumental amount of effort it was to construct and build this book, if that makes any sense. I didn't think of this book as one that a writer wrote, but rather having its component parts built independently, then stitched together and made whole by welding the pieces together into a coherent whole. But of course that is how books are written, you say. But somehow this book had a workmanship-like quality to it. I didn't feel this way of other works that were huge. It's a highly entertaining book, don't get me wrong. I liked it very much.
