For 12 years, Thad Beaumont secretly published novels under the name George Stark, even inventing a sinister author biography to satisfy the many fans of Stark’s gory bestsellers. But Thad no longer needs George Stark. So, with nationwide publicity, he kills him off.
In the small town of Castle Rock, Maine, where Thad keeps a summer home, Sheriff Alan Pangborn ponders the brutal murder of a man named Homer Gamache. The bloody fingerprints all over Homer’s truck match Thad’s exactly. When Pangborn pays the Beaumonts a visit, he is thrust into a nightmare of escalating horror. For it seems that George Stark, Beaumont’s dark half, has leapt into chilling life—and he’ll destroy everyone on the path to the man who created him.

I love Stephen King ! and never get tired of reading his books in english and spanish .I read the dark half a long time ago i couldnt put it down.
This is the first King novel that I read. I would say it ranks in the top of all that I have read. I could not put this book down. The amazing thing about King is that he takes you and drops you right in the middle of the book. You end up loving some of the characters and wanting to destroy the others. Amazing how he brings them to life. This book is no different.
ENJOYED READING THIS; ONE OF KING'S SMOOTH READING AND KEEP YOU INTERESTED STORY. HAVE ALL HIS BOOKS AND FEEL THIS ONE WAS UP THERE RIGHT ALONG W/HIS OTHERS, E.G TOM GORDON--THINNER. THANKS AGAIN MR KING FOR BAD DREAMS...

Not one of my favorite authors, but loved Duma Key so thought I would try another...again too much gore for me! He always does have an interesting twist and his imagination is astounding!!!
Once again King made it hard to put this book down once I started readint it. As with all King books I've read I finish them faster than others.
