The Running Man is a short book, tightly written to be read and enjoyed quickly. The future world it depicts is vividly captured with a few essential details. The action is also 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. --Patrick O'Kelley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Absolutely riveting. The final third was totally predictable, but King's superlative writing locks your eyes to each page and throws away the key.Published 21 hours ago by Jay R. Worsham
