Stephen King..... The Colorado Kid (1 Viewer)


Senior Member
I'm real big on Raymond Chandler, and I've enjoyed many by King years ago. I see a paperback in the store from the "Hardcase Series" and it looks a lot like an old Chandler detective novel. Apparently the series is from contemporary authors writing an older style mystery novel, so I picked up this one by King titled "The Colorado Kid".
It is certainly a departure from typical King, but he is one of the best at characters you can identify with and I consider it worth reading though it is not very lengthy......a short evening will get it done but nonetheless worth reading........ Keith

I don't think there is one that compares.

The Colorado Kid is an incredible read. I read it in a few hours and loved it. But the ending pissed me off. Still loved it though.
