Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Very immersive and interesting book! One person found this helpful. El libro no se hace pesado, pero practicamente durante todo el relato, no sabes a donde vas, simplemente lees el dia a dia del protagonista, interesante, pero no te empujara a continuar. Lo recomiento para los fans. Si recien empiezas a leer a King, mejor busca alguno de sus libros clasicos, como Carrie.

Some minor issues with the bookbinding but overall in good condition. Me gusto mucho de principio a fin.

Evil dolls and other weirdness

En cuanto a la historia es buenisima de principio a fin!! Probablemente la mejor obra de Stephen King!!! Terrorifica y a la vez sensible. No te la pierdas.

Edgar eventually reaches him and he is introduced as Jerome Wireman. Wireman is the hired companion of Miss Eastlake, who turns out to be very wealthy and the owner of half of Duma Key with the remaining half of the island's ownership in dispute. Over the coming weeks, Edgar and Wireman develop a close friendship. Edgar comes to believe, and Wireman later confirms, that Wireman has some psychic abilities.

Both Edgar and Wireman suspect that their psychic abilities are due to their both having sustained brain injuries Wireman tried to commit suicide years earlier by shooting himself and that Duma Key amplifies such abilities. The way Edgar paints becomes systematic: He eventually compiles a large catalog of artwork and is convinced first to try to show his work by his daughter, Ilse, and Wireman.

Miss Eastlake also insists to Edgar that Duma Key has a certain power and that his work should not remain on the island, or at least that he should not allow too many works to remain on the island at once. His work is appraised and found exceptional and a show is planned to exhibit and then sell his work. While Edgar works with the art gallery and Wireman planning the exhibition, Edgar gradually begins to understand that his paintings have a paranormal power that allow him to manipulate events, places, and people.

First Edgar paints a portrait of Candy Brown a man accused of raping and murdering a young girl in a highly publicized case that apparently causes him to die suddenly in his prison cell. In an experiment to confirm this power, Edgar works for days on a painting of Wireman.

Via this painting, the bullet that was lodged in Wireman's brain disappears, restoring Wireman's vision, but also erasing any of his psychic abilities. Miss Eastlake, in one of her periodic clear spells where her Alzheimer's recedes, is insistent that Edgar should sell all of his pieces at the exhibition and that one particular series of paintings should be broken up and sold to different people due to the power they possess. Elizabeth makes a surprise appearance at the exhibition, and after seeing the paintings herself for the first time becomes distressed and tells Edgar a number of things, including that the "table is leaking".

Elizabeth suffers a violent seizure, as she is trying to tell Edgar this, and dies in the hospital soon after.

A book for the beach: Duma Key by Stephen King | Books | The Guardian

When Edgar returns to Duma the next day he discovers that Big Pink was broken into and finds a canvas with "Where our sister? He soon discovers that those in possession of his paintings either die, or become possessed by "Perse" and carry out her deeds, which mainly include killing people close to Edgar. Most notably, Mary Ire, who had purchased one of a series of "Girl and Ship" paintings, breaks into Ilse's apartment and kills her by drowning her in her bathtub just minutes after Ilse burns "The End of The Game" at Edgar's request. Mary Ire commits suicide almost instantly thereafter.

Edgar suspects that Perse silenced Elizabeth. Edgar begins to realize that his paintings are connected to tragic events in Miss Eastlake's childhood. Edgar discovers, through both his paintings and the drawings done by a young Elizabeth after she had suffered a head injury and began drawing herself, that Elizabeth had inadvertently used her paintings to discover a figurine off of the coast of Duma Key.

This figurine, of a red-cowled woman, used the young Elizabeth to begin changing the reality around her. Elizabeth tried to use her power to destroy the figurine by drawing it and then erasing it. This only enraged the entity Persephone , which then killed Elizabeth's twin sisters by leading them into the surf and drowning them. A young Elizabeth, with the help of her Nanny, eventually discovered that the entity could be neutralized by drowning her in freshwater, and Elizabeth was able to do this by placing the figurine in a cask that is sealed in a cistern under the original house on Duma Key.

Intent on putting a stop to Perse following the death of his beloved daughter, Edgar, along with Wireman and Jack, travels to the house Elizabeth lived in as a child, which is now overgrown by thick and unnatural vegetation. They manage to find the figurine, and are able to contain it in freshwater inside one of their flashlights. Later, Edgar takes the flashlight back to Big Pink, where his daughter Ilse begins to form out of the sand and seashells under the house. The entity offers Edgar immortality and forgetfulness in exchange for the flashlight.

Edgar, however, has a different flashlight and tricks the entity masquerading as his daughter to get close enough for him to destroy it. Later, Edgar and Wireman drop the figurine into one of the freshwater lakes of Minnesota. A number of Edgar's paintings play significant roles in the novel and are described in great detail, both in their creation and how they look, beginning with his very first extensive drawing upon arrival at Big Pink, a ghostly picture of a ship on the sunset titled Hello.

He quickly experiments with a number of sunsets, which all fail to match up to "Hello". Although moving slowly at first, he rapidly increases in talent and figures out how to replicate the surrealism of his first drawing by adding objects hovering in the background of the sunsets, beginning with his Sunset with Conch. There are a large number of minor characters in the book who have only passing significance to the main characters or to the plot of the book, including large numbers of friends and family from Edgar's "other life" as well as Wireman's family and boss, a number of characters with loose association to the two, and the various people who rent houses on Duma Key during the tourism season.
