I don't read much horror and I haven't been a big King fan in ten or fifteen years, but I did enjoy Cell.
I was surprised by how well written it was and I was hooked by the second page. It was exciting and made me want to keep reading it, because I just had to know what was going to happen to the characters.
I wasn't crazy about where it ended and I felt like there could have been a little more to the story, but it was good.
As I'm sure you can guess by the pool of blood on the cover, this was gory; although, I did not think it was scary.
I always knew cell phones were a curse on mankind!Now I am sure. Zombies gore blood orphaned children. Stephen king at his most horrifying. Reminds me of some of his earlier works where man's unthinking actions lead to horrifying consequensces.
I know many Stephen King fans were disappointed with this novel, but I really enjoyed it. I was immediately captivated by the story. I may have liked it better if the cause of all the devastation was explained, but King chose to keep his readers guessing with this one, which was fine with me. The ending was great, left me wondering, don't want to give anything away.
Enjoyed this book though it did give me pause to use my cell afterwards.
Loved this book! Read it in 2 sittings, it was very interesting and almost believable!
