Did anyone else imagine Rush Limbaugh as Big Jim.
I really enjoyed this book. Best in a long time. The Stand was my favorite as well. I tend to like a long read and they both qualified as long and engrossing. I was struck at how many pop culture and current event references were sprinkled throughout. This seemed a very "now" book. It will date itself. I do not remember his other works being so.

Spoiler:
I did not get a Rush feel from Big Jim. Wishful thinking?
