I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I was afraid there'd be a tad too much Christianity but, thankfully, there wasn't.

What Stephen King excels at is character development. I really came to enjoy both Jamie and Charlie. 

What is this book about? Well, it's about a kid named Jamie who witnesses his pastor denounce god after his wife and child were killed. That was a turning point for Jamie because his faith in God ended there. Charlie, the town's pastor, is also really interested in electricity. By interested, I mean obsessed. 

We see Jamie grow up, join bands and do heroin, and then get on the sober bandwagon. There is a period of years where Jamie and Charlie live separate lives...but they find their way back to each other. 

As aging adults, Jamie and Charlie embark on a journey using electricity to find out what happens in the afterlife and if God actually exists. 

I won't say anymore. Stephen King is still one of my all-time favorites. 4 stars because, you know, this isn't quite Sai King's best. It's no Dark Tower, The Stand, or even Joyland material.
