This is the story of a girl who gets lost on an outing in the Northeast woods. In her panic to get back on the track, she takes turnings which lead her deeper and deeper into the terrifying woods. With only a small amount of food and water in her knapsack, she begins to give up hope of ever getting out. Alive. The only thing that keeps her going is her Walkman on which she listens avidly to Red Sox baseball games, creating an imaginary friendship with her hero Tom Gordon. And as she struggles for survival and a way out, she realises she's not alone. There's something else in the woods, and it's watching her.

A gripping story very well presented and narrated.
As an outisider to both Maine and the game of Baseball, the novel gave me a vivid and compelling insight into the essential nature of both. Highly recommended.
The story is well written and nicely paced. The performance by Anne Heche is excellent and has a steady, pleasant flow.
Similar to Gerald's Game, Trisha is alone and her imagination runs riot meaning there's probably little choice than to make her my favourite character. She shows great resolve and you fear for both her sanity and safety as time rolls on and she is still so far from civilisation and her family.
Where she confronts the bear.
No specific moment but reading about her loneliness and realising her fragility and the danger she is in as a 9 year old lost in the woods certainly pulls on the heart strings.
Another good story from Stephen King. Well worth a listen.
a brilliant story that keeps you hooked from the start you really care for the protagonist and the ending you'll she'd a tear and if there was a book of Stephen king's that should be made into a film this is one
I enjoy a Good Horror Story, having read & reread anything by Stephen King, James Herbert, Graham Masterton etc & (more recently) M.R James.
A striking read from an opening that never faltered from it's delivery too the close
