Another King winner!

This novel is a spell binding S King story. I couldn't put it down. Lots of food for thought on what if this happens. Loved it.

Can You Hear Me Now? ? Never Sounded so Scary!!

Great story ? funny in bits, cared about the characters. I loved the descriptions of Boston, New Hampshire, of course, Maine. Not ?throw the book down? scary, but there was enough blood and gore to keep it very interesting.

This was a departure for me, as I usually stick to ?chick lit?, but I?ve always enjoyed the occasional King thriller and this one didn?t let me down ? I loved the focus on what today is thought of as a ?regular? part of our lives, but in fact, this book makes you look at cellular technology as being mysterious and it seemed plausible that there could be something scary going on and King found a way to bring the message home.

was scared to use my cell

I really enjoyed this shorter novel by king, I loved the beginning, the storyline was good, slower, but good, and I liked the end. It isnt' a traditional zombie story or end of the world story. Its a fast and easy read.
