What is a bit different with End of Watch compared to the two previous books is that there is a bigger supernatural part in this book than there have been in the previous ones. One of the things that made me like the books so much was the fact that there wasn’t a lot. With that said I also want to state that there isn’t too much supernatural elements in End of Watch. At least not for my taste. I’m sure there are those of you out there that will think there are but I’m not one of them. I think it works.
Brady Hartsfield is also back (how disappointed we all would be if he wasn’t) and even though he seems to be harmless, sitting in room 217 of the Lake Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic he is still making life difficult for Hodges and his friends. And as usual when it comes to King’s books everything isn’t always what it seems to be. Is Hartsfield involved in the recent suicides? And if so, how can he be? Or is there a copycat out there pretending to be Hartsfield? And what’s the deal with all these fishes? The questions are many but I’m happy to say that all of them get answered in the book.
End of Watch is a great book, a great end to this trilogy and I almost wish I hadn’t read the first two books so that I could read them all now in one sitting…or a couple. I love the Hodges character, I have from the start but I have also grown to love Holly who I originally thought was a bit too much. But that is who Holly is, I just didn’t realize it from the start. Now I love them all and will miss them!
