Mike Awoyinfa As a writer, I have always believed in a good headline as a precursor to anything I write — be it a book or a newspaper column such as this on the cruel and horrendous death of the Thai billionaire whose helicopter crashed shortly after watching our man Wilfred Ndidi rescue his football club Leicester City from a home defeat. Helicopter believed to be carrying Leicester City owner crashes after game A headline gives you a sense of direction. A headline allows you to see the big picture, to see the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end.
Momentos antes do mundo desabar. Esperava mais do Stephen King. The ending, especially, was such a let-down, just a "cliff-hanger" which is inexcusable when investing in a long novel. Stephen King is my favorite horror author - I love his classics, but not everything he writes can be a masterpiece, I suppose.
It somebody else wrote this book, I would give it three stars, but I only give this two stars because I expect much more from King. Having said that, Cell is an absolute mess of a novel. There was nothing about it that made any sense.
King must really have been fixated on phones and computers while writing this. From what I can gather from reading this novel, the human brain is basically a hard drive that can be wiped out and reprogrammed.
It can also be exposed to viruses and worms just like a computer. In this novel, some mysterious pulse occurs, which turns people into ultraviolent, nonsensical monsters, but these are only the people who have cell phones. The story follows a group of survivors from Boston, where Clay, a struggling comic book artist who finally gets his break, is trying to return to his ex-wife and son in Maine.
Along the way, they meet other survivors and have confrontations with the phone zombies. The best part of this novel is the characterization. I thought that the characters in this story were well done, starting with Clay but also with the other members of the group.
Where the book falls apart is that the plot and concept behind the book are a train wreck. There is no explanation for anything. With no explanation whatsoever how any of this is happening. First of all, it was short, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Second, King did not take the time he usually does to develop his characters. One of the things I love about Stephen King is how he gets into the mind of his characters and goes back into their past to explain where they are coming from. This book does not do that, but for the most part, I think the story carries itself.
The ending was not final and leaves the reader hanging, but King does this on purpose and it pretty much works. All in all, not one of his best, but I was entertained.King - Write About Us Lyrics I hail from a place where nobody wants to come Cuz you better bring a gun and you better not run And I grew up with the pushers and the killers and the thieves But some students and some artists and some workers knew me And we all ha.

To Kill A Mockingbird, based on the book of the same name by Harper Lee, is a fantastic film. It captures the main themes and ideas of the movie although many parts aren’t mentioned so you should definitely still read the book.
