Stephen King is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His recent work includes The Institute, Elevation, The Outsider, Sleeping Beauties (cowritten with his son Owen King), and the Bill Hodges trilogy: End of Watch, Finders Keepers, and Mr. Mercedes (an Edgar Award winner for Best Novel and an AT&T Audience Network original television series).

After reading Stephen King's Duma Key, it is obvious that Florida's salt air and sunshine must agree with him. Like Edgar Freemantle, the book's protagonist, King seems to have found voices in the churning sea shells. The artistic style with which this book is written is like a refreshing breeze at sunset. Edgar Freemantle, a construction company owner, is nearly crushed to death by a piece of equipment, losing an arm, and most of his senses, due to a head injury.

Of all of Stephen King's books this one was the least frightening to me at first- I thought hey this isn't so bad. It begins with a man suffering a brain injury on construction site that leaves him unable to continue, he's also seeing a therapist due to black out spells and supreme rage. His therapist suggests a change of venue might be good for him. So the man decides to move to Duma Key in Florida. When he gets there, he discovers he has an artistic talent he never had before. Okay so none of this is scary, right. Yes that is what I thought too, this book's not scary at all. But I was wrong. It just takes awhile to get there maybe about a third of the way into the book, but then oh my lord is it scary! I loved it. i don't want to give away too much of it, but let's just say when things begin to happen like herons flying upside down over one part of the island, this is a good sign of what is actually going on here. It was so suspenseful and a great story. It was really hard to put down. And now i just discovered there is a part two to Duma Key. Wow, I've got to read it. Check it out for a good read.

I liked this story quite a bit, and rank it among my favorites of his novels that I've read. This was written after King's own serious accident and you can tell that infuses his main character. There is less gore in this story than in many of his earlier works, and the story has a slowly building sense of supernatural mystery that I really enjoyed. The ending is typical of King's style, but I felt a bit dissapointed in that. He built such an intriguing mystery around an evil force but the evil itself was not explained in a way that fully satisfied my curiosity. Still, it was a decent ending and I think endings can be the hardest part of any story to write. I did really like all the characters and the final scene involving the hero's daughter was very effective. Overall, this is a very intriguing story with a strong mood of supernatural mystery.

It’s been quite a while since the last time I read a novel on the scale of Duma Key. At well over seven hundred pages in length, it’s not a read for the feint of heart. To tell the truth, that is about the only aspect of it that seems daunting, or perhaps even a touch terrifying. Don’t get me wrong, the story is well written with a depth to it the hints at the way a painter layers on glaze after glaze of color to bring a painting to life.

There’s a hint of Lovecraft in Duma Key, in the telling and the story’s soul. It follows three distinct time frames: the story of a little girl as she’s recovering from a head injury, the story Edgar Freemantle rebuilds his life after a debilitating accident, and the time of the narrator, who also happens to be Edgar. The first two tie together in an intertwining thread that follows Edgar and the little girl’s journey to rediscover themselves, sometimes literally, through art. But both paths move past the mundane application of shape and form into something… else. The time of the narrator foreshadows, sometimes almost too much, what is to come. Of course, this is a Stephen King novel, so any mention of something happening to a character is likely an ill portent to say the least.

Overall, I would say this is a good read and would definitely recommend it. There are definitely scarier stories out there, and more horrifying, but sometimes that’s the point.

I wanted to write a review, because those that I read didn't touch on what I found most enjoyable. It's the characters. They're complicated, knowable, interesting, admirable: all of which makes this one of my favorites - in any genre. I very highly recommend it. Itself you loved the 2 books of The Black House, you'll certainly enjoy this compelling book.

As a reader that loves Stephen King, I especially enjoyed Duma Key. It had the elements that I look for in his works. I want to be totally drawn into the character, and to find out what makes him tick. With Edgar Freemantle, the main person in this novel, Mr. King certainly accomplished this. I am not going to write a long drawn out review, just to say that if you generally like Mr. King's earlier novels, such as "It" or "The Stand", then I think you would want to read this one. As a matter of fact, when you are finished with the book, you might feel that you know Edgar, Wireman, and Jack very well, and might wish that you too, had friends such as these three guys, who will stick with you through thick and thin. It's a book about a man who suffers great misfortunes in his life through a very bad accident, and then moves to Florida (Duma Key), and reinvents who he is through a newly discovered gift he has, the ability to paint and create amazing pieces. After that, the mystery begins. Enjoy!!!!!!

Stephen King is one of my favorite authors and I personally consider him one of the Masters of Contemporary American [fiction] Literature.
I started reading his works in my 'old country' (translated). But now that I live in America and can read them in the original version perspectives changed in a truly amazing way!

I live in Southeastern Florida and have to make frequent trips to the southwestern coast of the Florida Peninsula as we have customers there. Even if the place and some facts in this novel are fictional they fit into the great picture, and I have read this book three times already. As Always, King goes beyond the simple "horror story" or "thriller". He gives a great insight in psychological backgrounds and many times a merciless but also understanding and occasionally tongue-in-cheek critique on our contemporary American Society, and this makes his supra-natural oriented horror stories so haunting: They are based in every day's reality! This book is no exception. Great read.

I had this book on my Kindle for months before I got the chance to read it. It started out somewhat slowly, but when it hit full "King" it hit! Like his other books, the character development of not only the main character, but the supporting ones as well is amazing. The descriptions of what is going on bring you in and grab hold. I am glad that this was suggested to me, and that I took the time to read it.
