Critique on The Dark Half In the last month I have read the novel The Dark Half by Stephen King I have read it cover to cover and think it is a good book but Stephen King has written better Some of the book was very exciting while other parts bored me I would say it is good but not great This book is in my opinion written for people ages fourteen to twenty Although the vocabulary is somewhat confusing at times it is not a difficult story to read If you can get past the vocabulary the plot is not difficult to follow The best thing about The Dark Half in my opinion is how Stephen King made an unbelievable thing seem reasonable He made it so that Alan Pangborn the main authority figure in the story did not immediately believe Thad Beaumont the main character of the novel a writer in the story Even after there was good evidence that a supernatural thing was happening to Thad Pangborn did not believe him because that is what a real person would do They would be skeptical until they witnessed something themselves Finally he began to believe but not until about three-quarters of the way through Even then he wasnt sure Other similar things happened too George Stark the villain of the story was Thads penname come to life Stephen King made that seem possible with his explanation that Thad had a brain tumor when he was a child It was not however a normal brain tumor The doctor removed an eye some teeth some fingernails and parts of a nose These pieces were what George Stark was When Thad Beaumont stopped writing novels under the name George Stark Something happened to the pieces and they began to grow into a person The part of the story that could have been better was the fact that it is exactly like every other book by him
