5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely...brilliant!, 28 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Blaze (Paperback)
My partner bought this book for me for christmas after asking me to create a wish list on Amazon. I had read it by boxing day night, just couldn't put it down! Classic King characterisation once again and what starts as a simple plot from the cover (baby-kidnap, ransom ect ect) develops into so much more as us constant readers have come to expect. Reading about Blazer's childhood enthralled and saddened me and despite what he does throughout the course of the story you can't help but feel compassion towards him. Although I have been a long-time fanatic of Mr king, it is only recently that I have had time to actually start reading any of his novels published under the name of Richard Bachman (I still have the Regulators sitting here which i bought on day of release I haven't read yet!) Recently I got a copy of The Bachman Books and read "Rage" and "The Long Walk" (Both utterly excellent) and Blaze rates high up there with them as some of my favourite King reads.
Maybe the ending seemed a slight predictable but by the time I got to it, it still brought out the emotions I think King was planning us to have.
A great book and a worthy read to anybody that enjoys crime, adventure and real character analysis. You do NOT have to just be a Stephen King fan to enjoy this beauty! 10/10
