Ralph Roberts is an older man who lost his wife Carolyn to cancer a few months ago. Since then, he’s had a terrible time sleeping, and after months of insomnia, and trying every homemade remedy that people swear by, he’s having no luck.
But one day, tired Ralph spots something strange. . . colored auras around people. And then he starts seeing these little “men” that no one
else seems to see. Is he going crazy? Is he just seeing things?
At the same time, Ed Deepneau, who was good friends with Ralph before Ed beat up his wife Helen ferociously, starts to act evil and strange as well. Ed rants and raves about the Crimson King, the Centurions, the dead babies. . .
What in the world could be going on?
Ralph finds out quickly, when it turns out that only he and his neighborhood friend Lois are able to prevent a catastrophic event. But the question is: Will they be able to prevent it in time?
Insomnia is classic Stephen King horror/supernatural. It’s a heavy duty book best read digitally, since it’s a few hundred pages longer than most paperbacks. Is it my favorite King? No. But I am glad that I have another SK to cross off my list!
