Its been a while since I read this book, must be nearly time for a re-read, but at the point of the second death I burst out lauging so what does that say about me? Whilst King was then walking around for much of the day I was willing him to give himself up and explain the events in the belief that since they were genuine accidents he would not suffer too much. It was, as Andrew said, when he deliberately started planning to frame Mimi that I lost sympathy with him. Up until then I had been totally on his side.
