“Phones from Hell”

published 29/04/2013

some interesting and new ideas

the ideas arent fully formed. the ending isn't all...

All the books The last few weeks have been a flurry of activity for my book shelf. Finally I’ve been getting the time to get through the huge pile of stuff that has slowly and surely built up. I’ve cleared most of the books that I deemed to be quick reads and decided to start picking up the...

“Who You Gonna Call?”

A standard, non "Dark Tower" novel from Stephen Ki...

Very little that is truly original

Ever since the publication of 2002's "From a Buick 8", Stephen King's focus has been on finishing his "Dark Tower" series. There has been the odd side trip, into non fiction for "Faithful", his review of the 2004 Boston Red Sox season and the more recent "The Colorado Kid", which was really...

“When good mobiles turn bad!”

published 01/06/2006

Decent idea, it's written by King

Not his best work

It seems an age since King produced a new novel and so when I came across this in Tesco it took me quite some time to convince myself to wait for the paperback and save money (I have to justify these things to children who seem to believe mother's who claim lack of money have absolutely no right...

“Is Your Number Up?”

published 08/05/2006

Exciting, gripping, a welcome return to mainstream...

None, except for the ending. Frustrating as hell.

Probably one of the most eagerly awaited books of the year, if not the decade, I can't deny the tingle of excitement that ran through my spine when I heard that Stephen King's latest novel, 'Cell', was finally going to be one of his more traditional works and not something from the Dark Tower...

Poor logic to plot, suspect characters, no passion...

It is supposed to be Clay Riddell's day. A lucrative contract the type he has always dreamed of has finally come his way. However, when "The Pulse" hits all that he knows changes forever. He watches helplessly as a young girl tear out the throat of a businesswoman and her friend runs repeatedly...

“Cell.”

published 13/04/2006

a new stephen king book!

seems slightly rushed

This is my first book review so please bear with me and let me know how to improve it! Cell, Stephen King's latest venture - out now in hard back copy, immediately tells us the central theme of the book by its title and the images on the front cover - cellphones. This is slightly unusual for King...

Yes folks - I am back! After a short absence (and the fact that I am still not getting any alerts) I am back with a vengeance! As an ardent Stephen King fan, you could say I was slightly chuffed to find that Santa had been kind enough to leave a couple of King books under my christmas tree this...

After deciding that I really needed to read more sometime near the end of last year, I picked up a copy of MISERY, also by Stephen King. I fell in love with the man's style of writing and ability to have you clutch the book so strong your knuckles turn white. So when it came time to pick out some...

“Cell from Hell”

published 08/11/2009

Good Story, entertaining, quick read

Disappointing ending, not as descriptive as other ...

CELL STEPHEN KING I have come to the decision that Stephen King doesn't care much for modern technology-or the people who've created much of what we now rely on for everything in life day to day. In some of his other books, King has created worlds where Man-made viruses wipe out more than 99% of...

Excellent stand alone story with possibilities for...

Ending a bit of an anti-climax

It took me ages to get round to reading this and ages to get through it. This was not because it was a bad book and in fact if time had allowed me to I would have opened it in the morning and not closed it until my eyes shut at night. That's how much I enjoyed it in fact and although a lot of...

“Who ya gonna call?”

published 16/01/2008

Good, entertaining read.

Not groundbreaking.

Firstly, I must apologise that this seems to have come up as an audiobook review at the end re. the Ciao questions related to listenability etc. yet it has been written in the 'books' category, blame this on on Ciao, not me!. Stephen King is a somewhat prolific writer and has penned around 50...

“Stand Lite”

published 15/03/2006

Has a 'What If' feel about it

Nothing new

In literature you'll find that some people are fan-boys for authors, the type of people who even if their favourite author has lost their way and churned out some total dross recently, they'll still buy all the books that author writes, and in many cases they'll buy the hard-back copy rather than...

“A Luddite's Dream”

published 17/06/2006

A pretty good page turner

Fairly run of the mill stuff

I don't wait with baited breath every time that Stephen King releases a new book. It's just that my sister does and when she's finished she gives the books to me to read (same thing happened with Harry Potter). Over the years I've grown quite fond of the quick fix that King's books give. Never...

Not for me

You'll still be able to use your phone

Strangely Kingless feel

Fans of classic horror lured by promises of an end-of-the world survivor vs monster clash, assured that they will not use their mobile for days and cries of "Genius storytelling"* will instead be dissappointed with Kings railroad and, quite frankly, boring tale of a phone-related apocalypse...
