    " Not hard to believe Stephen King's claim that he wrote this book in a week. It was later adapted to a far smarter Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. "

    " Great story that led to a good movie. "

    " I loved this book and so did my husband. I can't believe it took me so long to get around to reading it, it's so short. It's more concise than Stephen King usually is, and it's such a page turner that you can't put it down. It unexpectedly had a lot of social commentary in it, and it leaves you wondering what happens to the society that remains. "
