Quotes & Awards

  • “Stephen King is one of those natural storytellers…getting hooked is easy.”

    Frances Fyfield, bestselling author

  • “An incredibly gifted writer, whose writing, like Truman Capote’s, is so fluid that you often forget that you’re reading.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “Merely by tickling the keys of his word-processor King can make the flesh creep half a world away.”

    Times (London)

  • “The action is…fast paced and, though the novel differs from much of King’s other work, the sardonic social commentary reveals a pleasing glimmer of King’s characteristically twisted sense of humor.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Brett James | 2/14/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jones | 2/14/2014

    " Great story that led to a good movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Natasha Snyder | 2/5/2014

    " 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. "

    " POW. Read this. It is awesome. "
