A new stretch of interstate is being build and Bart Dawes' house is right in its path He has until January 20th to find a new place for he and his wife to live and also a new location for the Blue Ribbon the industrial laundry where he has been employed for twenty years What will happen if he doesn't I wasn't very old when the original four Bachman books were released but I can't imagine this one did very well before King outted himself It doesn't really have a lot going on Bart Dawes is cracking as progress threatens to take his house and place of employment For 320 pages Normally my complaint with a lot of Stephen King books is that they're a lot of unnecessary crap and they could easily lose 300 pages Roadwork is no different This thing could easily be condensed into a 20 page short story Your house and work are having to be relocated and the city is paying for it I get it Now use that Weatherby and plastiue and start blowing things up if you can't handle itEven Rage was better than this At least all the talking and stalling before the climax in Rage was somewhat interesting Dawes started out mildly interesting and then just seemed pathetic and sad By the end I was ready to run the wrecking ball and destroy his house myselfThe fourth of the original four Bachman books is now closed Now I can move on to a book I actually care about 2 out of 5 stars

Earing down Bart Dawes's home leveling his memories and destroying his past all fo. I know something else as well there's a place in most of us where the rain is pretty much constant the shadows are always long and the woods are full of monstersRoadwork tells the story of Bart Dawes a man suffering from grief following the death of his young son To add to his woes he is to lose both his workplace and home as a conseuence of the extension of a nearby interstate highwayLet me give you a little background into my history with the Bachman books before Roadwork I had read The Running Man and Thinner I thought The Running Man was okay I liked the idea and I enjoyed the ending however it felt like it dragged a bit in the middle I had a better experience with Thinner it felt like a King book to be honest and that's probably why The Bachman books seem to have a pretty bleak outlook with dark endings and that's not necessarily a bad thing I like that sometimes It just feels a bit depressing at times and I much prefer reading King when he is actually King I prefer his general writing style and the types of stories we get So I went into Roadwork feeling a bit apprehensive and not really looking forward to itHowever I'm happy to say that I enjoyed this one way than I thought I would I didn't love it but it was a uick addictive read Some people on bookstagram had said they had struggled to plow their way through it but I didn't find that to be a problem The character of Dawes was very easy to sympathise with Initially my thoughts were This guy is annoying just get over it but this swiftly turned into feeling a lot of sympathy for the character once you learned about him and his history as well as the reasoning behind his actions The loss of a child can very easily send you into a downward spiral especially when combined with the knowledge that you're going to lose your house It's very understandable that you'd want to hold onto whatever is left in your lifeWhen reading about Roadwork I found out that King wrote this book as a way of dealing with the grief after losing his mother to cancer Once I knew that it really did make me view it differently and you can see the pain and heartache entrenched in the pages and the inability to let go This is clearly King trying to work through the pain and try to make sense of it all I believe that over time it has become one of King's favourites of the earlier Bachman booksUsually I don't rate books using half stars but I was so stuck deliberating between 3 and 4 stars for this one that I've had to introduce half stars So I give this one 3 and a half stars out of 5 An enjoyable Bachman book for me personally but I can understand why others may not have enjoyed it as much
