3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Yarn but nothing special, 7 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Cell (Paperback)
I am a big Stephen King fine and having read positive vibes about this book - King fans would find him back to his best said a few people - I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. The fact that many shops are selling this at half price at the moment did slightly put me off - if it was worth reading surely people would pay full price?

The book is typical King. There are a group of normal people struggling against an evil of some kind. This time around it's a dead phone virus sweeping through the World that turns people into zombie-esque creatures. Our heroes find themselves struggling to escape the virus and the book follows them as they travel across country.

The book is good for a quick read, but is nothing special. All of the characters seemed a bit flat and I didn't find I could really connected with them in any way. The story itself had kept me reading, wanting to know what happened - but like so many similar books it tailed off at the end for want of an ending that truly fitted the story.

All in all, it is a good read and many people will enjoy it. However, if you expect a bit more from your books then it probably isn't for you. King fans will appreciate the book, but it does not hit the highs of some of his other works.
