Stephen King â 5 review

Stephen King â 5 review review The Dead Zone ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Smith the small town schoolteacher who spun the wheel of fortune and won a four and a half year trip into The Dead Zone John Smith who aw. Johnny Smith is one bad luck bastardHe starts off well enough as a nice guy with a talent for teaching and is in the early stages of what looks to be a very promising relationship with Sarah However a car accident leaves Johnny in a coma which nobody thinks he ll recover from Miraculously he wakes up 4 years later but he finds that Sarah has married someone else his mother has turned into a religious lunatic he s got a long and painful rehab to endure and he faces a mountain of debt from his hospital bills Oh and he now has psychic ability to learn details about a person by touching them or personal objects as well as sometimes seeing their futures This might seem like a gift but as Johnny uickly learns it s really a curse that eventually puts him on a collision course with a dangerous politician named Greg StillsonI ve always thought this was one of King s better books but hadn t read it for years A new audio version with James Franco narrating and doing a pretty good job of it got me motivated and I m pleased to find that it mostly lives up to my memory of itThe elephant in the room on this one is that even though it was published in 1979 the Stillson plot is about a populist demagogue who manages to rise in politics despite being a crazy and corrupt piece of shit just because he has talent for making rubes think that he s a maverick who tells it like it is even as they willfully ignore the obvious warning signs So it d be easy to say that King is a prophet these days Yeah he hit the mark with that one but on the other hand there s plenty of writers who have done stories about shady politiciansWhat I found interesting here is what King did with Johnny s mother Vera She starts out as someone with strong fundamental religious beliefs but Johnny s accident sends her over the high side and into the realm where she starts believing tabloid stories about Jesus living underground at the South Pole She s completely immune to facts and logic and she d rather rely on prayer than medication to handle her high blood pressureIt s fascinating to read a character like this in the 70s setting where tabloids and poorly printed tracts are how Vera gets her crackpot theories and how even then she uses them to create her own view of the world because reality doesn t suit her Fast forward to the 21st century where some people pick their news web sites based on how it conforms to what they want to believe as they spread rumors on Facebook about child sex rings in the basement of pizza restaurants that don t even have a basement and you realize that King had tapped into something that was on the rise even then Leaving aside the eerie similarities to America today what sets this apart from his other novels is the way that King focused on John Smith and made his story a genuine tragedy Johnny just wanting to try and resume some kind of normal life but unable to stop himself from using his power to help people and put himself in a media spotlight is incredibly compelling Uncle Stevie takes his sweet time with this so that it comes across as a slow burn and it s not really a horror novel although it can be creepy at times You can see where the bigger plot involving Johnny and Stillson is headed for a good long while although King still makes the journey there worth the trip and Johnny is one of his characters who haunts me the most The Prince of Pleasure The Wilde Brothers #05 years later but he finds that Sarah has married someone else his mother has turned into a religious lunatic he s got a long and painful rehab to

The Dead Zone

Stephen King â 5 review review The Dead Zone ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Johnny the small boy who skated at breakneck speed into an accident that for one horrifying moment plunged him into The Dead Zone Johnny. This was my second time in The Dead Zone I remember the first time fondly as this is only one of two Stephen King books I read in one sitting the other being Pet Sematary The first time was in the late 1990s at an all night coffee shop in Cincinnati I read until the sun came up fueled on caffeine and the enthralling words of the Master of Horror himself I suppose knowing that I read it in one sitting says a lot about what I thought about it I LOVED IT It blew me away It was creepy heart wrenching introspective speculative terrifying thought provoking and on and on and on I just knew I had to read it again now to see if I still felt the same And I do I definitely do I think many people recommend Carrie or The Shining to people just starting King I rarely hear The Dead Zone But to me this would be a fantastic place to start It is not too long to be daunting like It or The Stand It does not involve the potential commitment of a series like The Dark Tower or Hodges Trilogy I think the story is fairly straight forward and would be easily accessible to many Also hoping that I am not saying too much I think this story is particularly terrifying in the world s current political climateThis time around I did the audio I was skeptical at first because it was James Franco and he usually seems kind of silly to me most of my memories of him are Seth Rogan stoner movies I am guessing he may have been invited to do this audio version because of his involvement in King s 112263 mini series which I still need to watch Update 182020 Just noticed I said I still need to watch this but I did in 2019 It was great I think he did a great job narrating this book and I will gladly do other books in the future narrated by himYou ask me what King book I recommend this is it You haven t read it yet Why not
