Mile 81 Mash-Up
Talk Mile 81 and all things Stephen King here! Read my Mile 81 Review here. And be sure to join the Mile 81/Stephen King talk on this page.
I got into King around age 11 or 12. Always loved to read and was quickly pulled into the world of King. My first King book I read was Carrie, quickly followed by Firestarter, I believe (the order is now muddled in my mind…) and loved both of them.
But the one that really grabbed me and made me fall in love was The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon.
The main character was a normal girl like me (who lived by the woods, no less) who got thrown into the scariest situation that I didn’t know if she could get out of. I was hooked.
The character, Rachel, in Mile 81, reminds me of this Girl. She seems to be made of the same stuff that the Girl was. That stuff that fights in order to survive and is forced to let go of her little girl status in a heartbeat. And Mile 81 will also leave you wondering if anyone will get out of this alive.
