The new book has the title “Stephen King’s Maine Haunts” and it’s the perfect book for every fan that wants to know more about the story behind the story. He visits the train tracks that became the tracks in “The Body”, the diner that was the inspiration for Al’s Diner in “11/22/63” and The Standpipe that can be found in “IT”, just to name a few. We also get to see where King went to school, where he worked and where he lived as a kid.
The photos and the accompanying text give a good idea as to how King came up with many of his stories and that is very interesting. It shows you how he got many of his ideas and proves that what King says is true; “Write about what you know”.
I enjoyed “Stephen King’s Maine Haunts” and it’s a new angle on King’s stories and how parts of them came to be and it’s interesting to look at the photos and imagine a 10-year-old Stephen walking there, not knowing that it would be part of a bestseller many years down the road.
