Another thing keeping this in the "life isn't fair" category rather than the "everything sucks" category for me is that Vic and Donna's marriage holds true: it would be realistic enough, admittedly, for it to collapse, to not be able to survive the affair, let alone the death of their son, but their ability to hold onto each other and help each other has a kind of beauty to it. They not only survive their circumstances but continue to love each other throughout them. It's hopeful.

I often find King's novels sad, in some ways, but I hardly ever find them depressing, and I think the "life isn't fair" vs. "everything sucks" distinction is a big part of why.
