Wally Lamb Wally Lamb is a master storyteller who can sublimely execute novels that span generations. The novel follows Caelum and Maureen Quirk, two middle-aged schoolteachers who move to Littleton, Colorado. But as Caelum leaves briefly to go back to Connecticut, Maureen must suffer alone as she gets caught up in the Columbine High School massacre. Her trauma is not soon overcome, but as Caelum reconstructs their family history in great detail, a collective pattern of grief and suffering is revealed. (2)

Relocating to a family farm in Connecticut after surviving the Columbine school shootings, Caelum and Maureen discover a cache of family memorabilia dating back five generations, which reveals to Caelum unexpected truths about painful past events. (博客來)

Stephen King The Shining was Stephen King’s first bestseller, and it’s easy to see why. This 1977 novel tells the story of the Torrance family, including Jack, Wendy, and their five-year-old son, Danny, and their fateful stay at a haunted hotel in Colorado. Following in the footsteps of horror masters like Edgar Allan Poe, The Shining blends supernatural and psychological terror into one, spine-tingling plot. (3)

絕對不要懷疑你的預感!

他需要「全景」,然而傑克並不知道,「全景」也正等待著他……  (博客來)
