I just finished this book on the train. I am completely speechless. I absolutely LOVED IT. It was just my speed and style of writing. The language he used wasn't dumbed down and it wasn't too esoteric. I enjoyed the main character Ben Richards and how Bachman/King didn't allow you to get too close to him. I also enjoyed the very scary, yet very realistic world that he created. Reality tv shows that end in death or exploit people's misfortune are a bigger possibility than they were in 1982 when Bachman/King wrote it.
This book is fast paced and THRILLING! I loved every minute of it. I have never read a book by Stephen King but this was a very cool introduction to his lighter stuff. I recommend this for fans of suspense thrillers, dystopian novels and adult fiction.
