Duma Key: A Novel By Stephen King
The story of the novel is described in such a way that we too get motivated or mentally charged up against any difficulty that we ourselves are facing in life. The hero or the main character after a dissatisfying span in his life once again finds something useful in his life. He goes back to his strengths with which he becomes able to tackle his current weaknesses. The supernatural elements are the same as present in other stories of Stephen King, like The Dark Tower I this thing no doubt one of the trademarks of King’s writings.
The narration by John Slattery is also excellent. The language in most portions of the novel is a bit harsh or slang especially when the main character is facing the mental trauma during the rejection period of his life in which everything all of the sudden ends for him after just a mere accident. The accident is perhaps symbolic that kills the old Edgar and gives birth to a new one who is more artistic than the original one.
The act of bravery like in the novel Dream Catcher is also present in this novel as well where one act changes the whole life of the main character. Edgar feels the same isolation condition after his marriage end that the hero who is in Insomnia felt after the death of his wife. The isolated condition that takes us close to self-destruction. In the end, the story is different from most of King’s stories as it ends with positivity in Edgar’s life. It is like the birth of an artist.
