With so many good Stephen King King to read, Elevation should not have made my reading list.

Short novella, easily read in an hour or so, and pretty much devoid of anything memorable. There is some nice imagery, and of course the dialogue is good. I always feel that King has the best ability to capture the rhythms of how real people talk, despite how he keeps dropping his characters into bizarre situations. But the rest of this story is just a "can't we all get along" sort of fairy tale. Nothing wrong with promoting that of course, but you kind of expect something a little creepier from King. The weight loss thing has no logic except for magic, and neither does the town's about-face towards the lesbian couple. But there's a happy ending, mostly, so it's all good.

A very enjoyable read, I did not expect that ending'
