Bare Bones: Conversations on Terror with Stephen King - Tim Underwood, Chuck Miller, Stephen King

To be honest, I was expecting a lot more. I thought it would be an interview divided in different sessions, a sort of one-on-one conversation throughout the book. Instead, it gathers different interviews Stephen King did while touring and promoting his work, found in different magazines.

Some interviews were more interesting than others but you still get a view on how King's mind works, his fears and opinions on various subjects (e.g. goverment, film industry, horror books, his own work, etc.). I was very amused by his answers and surprised at how honest he was. Even though he says otherwise, Stephen King puts a lot of thought into his answers and, therefore, I felt he was very critical and analitical of his own work, without taking it for granted.

I would not recomend you read it from cover to cover in one sitting or in a short amount of time because the book would turn repetitive and boring.

All in all, I enjoyed the book but I was expecting something else.
