Bag of Bones by Stephen King Book Summary

From international bestseller Stephen King, a tale of grief, of love’s enduring bonds, and the haunting secrets of the past—the inspiration for the A&E miniseries.

Stephen King’s most gripping and unforgettable novel, Bag of Bones, is a story of grief and a lost love’s enduring bonds, of a new love haunted by the secrets of the past, of an innocent child caught in a terrible crossfire.

Set in the Maine territory King has made mythic, Bag of Bones recounts the plight of forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who is unable to stop grieving even four years after the sudden death of his wife, Jo, and who can no longer bear to face the blank screen of his word processor.

Now his nights are plagued by vivid nightmares of the house by the lake. Despite these dreams, or perhaps because of them, Mike finally returns to Sara Laughs, the Noonans’ isolated summer home.

He finds his beloved Yankee town familiar on its surface, but much changed underneath—held in the grip of a powerful millionaire, Max Devore, who twists the very fabric of the community to his purpose: to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother.

As Mike is drawn into their struggle as he falls in love with both of them, he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed here—and what do they want of Mike Noonan?

As vivid and enthralling as King’s most enduring works, Bag of Bones resonates with what Amy Tan calls “the witty and obsessive voice of King’s powerful imagination.” It’s no secret that King is our most mesmerizing storyteller. In Bag of Bones—described by Gloria Naylor as “a love story about the dark places within us all”—he proves to be one of our most moving.

Great Read!!!. Awesome book!!! Definitely a page turning thriller:) highly recommend this book as its fantastic!!!

Bag of bones. I have always loved this book!! I would read it in bed, and have to stop cause it would start to freak me out. I have always recommended this book to Stephen King fans!! Love it!!

Wow The story was a tad slow but man the ending...THE ENDING!! And the story The Cat From Hell was even better!

Bag of bones. Great read. Hard to put down, but must say I wished for a happier ending.

Nope.... Major miss in my opinion. My least favorite King novel. Story story story that went no where zzzzz, and then a ghost at the end. Rushed and abrupt finish leaving lots of questions. What did I read all that for? Sorry Stephen.

Amazing!. Couldn't put this book now. It's an emotional roller coaster. Great read!!

Excellent Read. Stephen King is so much more sophisticated in his writing than Dean Koontz. I just read Odd Thomas and regretted buying it. I always go back to King.. This is another great story. Buy it.

Bag of Bones. S.K. called this a haunted love story. It's also about an author in which King delights us with his insight. There's a lot of great quotes here that I really enjoyed. This story takes awhile to get going but trust me, keep reading! I throughly enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it. After all were all just a bag of bones.

Best book ever. This is my favorite book! I have read it so much I need to by another... Totally recommend this

Superb book!. This is one of the best books by Stephen King. I absolutely loved every word.

Love love love. This is sooooo my fav king book. Made me scared and i love the fact that words on pages can do that to me!

My favorite King Novel!. The best of the best.

Amazing!. I had read this book when it was first published in the late 90s. Now that I have an iPad I decided to make this my first book on it. I must say I forgot how great this book is! At some points I got chills while reading it. And reading it home alone was also a lot more intense. SK writes thrillers so well! Thanks for such a good one.

Perfection. This is my favorite Stephen King book. It's his attempt at a love story & is beautifully executed.

Bone Chilling. Having wandered away from Mr. King for about a decade I believe I'm now largely caught up. I was hesitant to read Bag of Bones fearing it would not have aged well. My fears were completely unfounded. Bag is peak King...enthralling, grotesque and down right bone-chilling. I once again feel I could run into one of Kings's characters, those that remain on this side of the divide, in the mall or at church. Hello Mike Noonan...say hi to Kyra for me.

all time favorite. I have read and listened to this book when it was first released. I own the hard and soft copy. For whatever reason this story has touched me. I feel like I was there in the amazing way King details just enough for your imagination to run! Bravo!

Bag of Bones. This was the first book I ever read by Stephen King. I was only 15 years old and that began my love for Mr King’s writing that persists to this day 21 years later

R.I.P Jo. Perfect all around book it contains everything I love Stephen did an amazing job in this one

Great Book!. What a great, deep, wonderful story by Stephen King!

Best king novel. Absolutely loved it.

Great read. Love king.. Love this book. Will read again.

Absolutely Loved This!!!!!!. This was my second time reading a Stephen King novel. I have to say I'm hooked. He has such a vivid and wild imagination. I'm a fan for life. This was a great read and will keep you wanting to read more.

Great book but iTunes really needs fix typos. This is an awesome book which I own in hardback, watched the movie (good but not the book; I know lots of people say that), and now own through iTunes. As said it is great with detail, does show the bonds of love whether mother and child or husband and wife, that wonderful good vs evil, and fast-paced SK so known for. Hard time with iTunes version and make it not as great for the 4th or 5th time of reading it was the misspellings more than any thing as it made hard to sometimes make out what should be there as so misspelled. If iTunes could replicate hardback it would be 5 stars and not 4.

Could NOT put it down!!!. As always Stephen King keeps us wanting more! Thrilling and full of suspense! LOVED it!!!

Could easily be Kings best book. This is more then a good scare, it is a he'll of a good read. This book has heart, chills and characters that you get feel like you know. Great book.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!. I am new to audio books but love to read. I could not stop listening. It put me into THE ZONE and I missed my turn off while listening to it in my car ......missed it by 6 miles!!!!!

Great Read. One of SK's best. Read it.

It. Loved IT, best book I ever read. Thank u Mr. King.

Bag of bones. Great book love reading Steven King books!!!!

Amazing read!. My FAVORITE Stephen King novel by far!!!!

Best of all. I've been hooked on Stephen King since I was 12 when I first picked up "The Stand". I own every book he's published and this boOk, by far, is my favorite of all time! In short, it's an irresistible ghost story love story with amazing characters!

Wonderful!. It's been quite awhile since a book grabbed me the way 'Bag of Bones' did, could barely put it down. Love pretty much everything that Mr. King has written; he rules!!

Good book. Reading the first few chapters was a bit dry for me. There was a bit too much talk about writers. But i was happily satisfied wen the mystery started to unfold. Good overall. I liked CELL better.
