Overview

The Dead Zone by Stephen King

No one comes close to the phenomenon of the world's most popular creator of terror and suspense. And this is one of his best...

The stunning novel of second-sight praised by the Atlanta Journal as "a compulsive page-turner" and by the Los Angeles Times as "faultlessly paced [and] continuously engrossing."

Just finish the book a week ago, 5/16/2009. This book is amazing! One of the best book I've read in a while. You can't help but fall in love with the characters. However, be careful of some heartaches after reading this book, (in my opinion) one of the saddest ending ever.

I know there are a lot of people who think that the world begina and ends with Stephen King. I am not a particularly big fan of his other books, but this one is one of my newa favorite books of all time. With elements of mystery, fantasy, action, and romance all stuffed togther into one original story full of symbolism and interesting characters, this book is a must-read for all Stephen King fans and the rest of us.

I have been a Stephen King fan for many years. Somehow, I missed this book when it came out. While discussing favorite books with a friend recently, he brought up "The Dead Zone." I could not believe I had never read it. I happened to have my nook with me, looked it up and downloaded it right then and there. I decided to read a chapter or two before finishing the book I was reading at that time. I couldn't stop! I must say, this is one of my all-time favorite King novels. It is a very unique concept that was expertly written. This is a page turner that robbed me of hours of sleep! There is a little bit of everything in this book including mystery (of course), romance, drama, humor and supernatural influences. You will run the whole gamut of emotions when reading this page turner. I highly recommend it and will probably read it again in the near future.

What a great book this is. This is one of Stephen King's best books. Johnny Smith wakes up after a 5 year coma, with psychic abilities he never had before. Read it and you will love it to.

My son asked me to pick this title up next time I went to B & N. He has finished reading it. As far as I am concerned, the fact that he read it all and wants more titles from the same author says it all. This is a kid who will read for his school work, some music and game magazines, and that's it. He gave up his free time to read the Dead Zone.

If you are a fan of Stephen King, this is a must read. This is a classic King's novel even though it is not his best. The plot is original and has some quite thrilling moments. However, as a long time King's fan I have to admit that it is not his best. In the end you feel like he is dragging the conclusion just to add some more pages. In short: Great book but not the best of King. If you never read Stephen King try "Salem's Lot" or "The Stand" first.

As always, I love the way King presents his characters. This story, though, was haunted with pain and regret from the first chapter. A beautiful story I'm glad I have finally read.

Great book, but this edition is 402 pages, not 416. Anyways, this is a must read thriller/suspense with a satisfying ending, imo. It has two villains, one being Frank Dodd and the other Greg Stillson. More of the story is focused on Stillson than Dodd, but that is just fine.

Didn't want to read the book because of the TV series and it seemed to me a novel by King that slipped through the cracks. This book is hopeful, sad, and love wrapped into this novel. A need to read for any fan of loving to read.
