In Cell King taps into readers fears of technological warfare and terrorism. Mobile phones deliver the apocalypse to millions of unsuspecting humans by wiping their brains of any humanity, leaving only aggressive and destructive impulses behind. Those without cell phones, like illustrator Clayton Riddell and his small band of "normies," must fight for survival, and their journey to find Clayton's estranged wife and young son rockets the book toward resolution.
Fans that have followed King from the beginning will recognize and appreciate Cell as a departure--King's writing has not been so pure of heart and free of hang-ups in years (wrapping up his phenomenal Dark Tower series and receiving a medal from the National Book Foundation doesn't hurt either). "Retirement" clearly suits King, and lucky for us, having nothing left to prove frees him up to write frenzied, juiced-up horror-thrillers like Cell. --Daphne Durham --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The overall plot of the story is interesting, however the ending of this story makes the entire book not worth reading.
And then, after all that I read the last line of the book and turned the page expecting another chapter and was ticked off to find it was the end of the book.
You get the feeling that the author didn't know what to do with the storu and just ends it leaving the reader with a "what happened" on their lips.
Vintage King so always intriguing but you kinda feel like we've been here before. Ending was a little weak.The premise is definitely a scary one and all to plausible.Published 2 days ago by Lance Sanchez
