The surprise story of how HarperCollins came to publish a new work by Ms. Lee, now 88 years old, has captivated and shocked the literary world. - http://www.wsj.com/articles/harper-lee- ... 1423270702

I guess the LHC might be some sort of a Mockingbird with its wonderful luminosity build by the illuminati :mrgreen:

btw when I read the book I liked the alcoholic sitting under a tree with his paper bag, next to the court if my mind serves me right ...

cheers,

I have Doctor Sleep I've not read it yet, I read The Shining just before Christmas and I was really surprised how different it was from the movie, No wonder Stephen King hated it so much. I do have IT on the go, Pet Sematary I have not read but the movie freaked me out for years because Zelda was damn scary as a 9 year old hahaha.
