School & Library Binding: 1104 pages. When I was on a school field trip in the seventh grade, I took Stephen King's "IT" with me to read. The trip was going to be two days in Virginia, and was an example of staying overnight on a school trip. It should have been an adventure. The trip was frankly a waste, but the book was sublime.

The Dead Zone is a horror and supernatural thriller novel by Stephen King published in 1979. It is his seventh novel and the fifth novel under his own name. It concerns Johnny Smith, who is injured in an accident and remains in a coma for nearly five years. Upon emergence, he exhibits clairvoyance and precognition with limitations, apparently because of a "dead zone," an area of his brain that suffered permanent damage as the result of his accident.

Stephen King - The Dead Zone Series -. (Horror ) Johnny, the small boy who skated at breakneck speed into an accident that for one horrifying moment plunged him into The Dead Zone. Serve my ass, you cheap bastards, Johnny said. He fell on his knees and began to gather up the letters, sweeping them together with his mittens. His fingers ached dully, a reminder of the frostbite, a reminder of Frank Dodd riding a dead toilet seat into eternity, blood in his all-American blond hair. He swept the letters up and heard himself muttering over and over, like a defective record: Killing me, you people are killing me, let me alone, can’t you see you’re killing me?

The only criticism I have of this book is that I wish I had read it sooner. It was recommended to me by a Stephen King fan that caught on to his brilliance as an author before I did. When I asked which King novel I should read next, he replied "in an election year, The Dead Zone of course". So happy I took his recommendation. It is eerie how relevant so much of this novel is given that it was 40+ years ago. Well developed, well written, several twists, I missed the characters being part of my day when I finished. Highly recommend this book, especially when we have an election coming our way! It would be interesting to see the same story told with the invention of social media and all news all the time.

It's Stephen King. You either like his writing, or you're not even reading this review, because you'd never buy something of his. I saw that some other reviewers complained that this book was slow-paced or boring. I did not find that to be the case, but the thing I've always loved most about King's writing is the care he puts into crafting his characters. They are real people, who live on in your mind, with all their virtues and flaws. For the ultimate example of this, I always cite King's The Stand, whether we're talking about Stephen King or not. Masterful. Just masterful. So, I didn't mind that we didn't jump right into the precognition stuff. I had watched the movie with Christopher Walken many years ago (I know, sacrilege to watch the movie first.), as I slowly built up my King library (ultimate goal--everything King has ever written), but hadn't read the book until now. I don't remember how the movie wrapped things up, so am trying not to write any spoilers, but that intense character building King does paid off in a big way at the end. I was wrecked, emotionally wrecked, and cursing Stephen King's name, even as I was saying, "So good. So freaking good. You got me again, Mr. King."

The takeaway is that, if you have a King section in your library, this deserves to be in it. If you're a King fan and haven't read this, you should. If you feel like I do, that one of King's greatest strength is his character development, then, I think you'll enjoy this.

Readability: Moderate to Easy. Full of common language: relatable phrases and cliché's. Simple, clear language. Explicit words found throughout.

Novel Premise: Interesting! If you could travel back in time and kill Hitler, knowing what you know now, would you? Similarly, if you knew a politician running for office today would be the cause of the end of the world, would you assassinate said politician? And what would it be like if you were put into a coma, only to wake up years later, your life forever altered? There is an interesting romantic element to the novel, though tragic, and not the central topic.

Overall Impression: You'll be sucked in by the novel, though not right away. Give it 25 pages. Once King has you in his grips, per usual, you will not be able to put the book down. There are better King books. However, this novel treats death and relationships (past and present) with an interesting spin due to the supernatural and psychological premise. This book is not as scary as it is intense, not as horrific as it is the kind of book to stick a block of dread in the middle of your stomach, page per page.

Literary Merit: None. This is a genre novel, by an author at the top of his genre. Compared to his better works, this ranks higher than, say, books like 'The Tommyknockers' or 'Gerald's Game', but does not come close to novels like 'The Shining' or 'The Stand' where literary methods are in better representation.

The Bottom Line: Great for a Stephen King fan. Great for someone who is interested in the premise. Great for someone looking for an easy, relatable read. Not for someone who is a horror-novel junkie, you'll be underwhelmed. Not for someone who dislikes thriller novels, you might get queasy. I liked the book and rated it four stars out of five.

I'm not sure why I've given this 4 stars. King's reputation? The fact that I normally enjoy his books, late to them though I am? there's a half decent story somewhere in this, but....... I found it structurally dissatisfying, the whole somewhat spoilt by character storylines dealt with too early, and too randomly to fit within the whole book. I always go along with King's foray into the unknown in order to accept the storyline, disregarding my personal beliefs. And this book was no different, only I didn't buy his approach to reveals and character portrayals, as they were ordered in the story. It was uneven, and heavy handed. But should I dare criticise? And at this late stage. Yes, it WAS the least satisfying King story that I've read to date, but the John Smith main character was well set and meaningful. As I've hinted, it was the unfolding of the story that perplexed me, that relating to one character simply not blended sufficiently well into the whole. It didn't fit. His role was of no substance to what went before, when at last we arrived at his relevance. So, disappointed? Yes. This time round.
