   Stephen King has done it again... completely blow my mind. This book was very well written, with a great cast of characters. It also, in my opinion, had a great mystery aspect. I really did not know how it was going to end or what was going to happen to the characters. The Dead Zone also had great stories within the main story. Like the story line with the serial killer, and how Johnny was able to help catch him. Greg Stillson is subtly one of King's greatest villains. It just goes …

King himself has said that he thought the film version (Dir: David Chronenberg) was better than the book, which he (King) felt moved too slowly. Perhaps, but still a good read. Suddenly able to see the future is bad enough... but knowing that you might be able to change it...

The Dead Zone is one of those books that one can turn to when they need to learn why Stephen King is a master at what he does.  It's also a good book for aspiring writers to look to when it comes to challenging the reader.  Some feel it doesn't, but when we dig into The Dead Zone, what you're getting is a story with a simple narrative, but a very complex question.  And how our main character goes about it is amusing.  The Dead Zone is almost all story.  But it is without …

"The Dead Zone" is Stephen King's best novel, but it is not the best Stephen King novel.    Illogical? No, not when you realize "The Dead Zone" is something of a departure for the horror maven. John Smith is called upon to deal with horrible things, and otherworldly things, but the two things are not as connected as they are in other King novels.    Smith is an unprepossessing teacher whose long-forgotten childhood ability to flash on precognitive moments …

The year before THE DEAD ZONE was published, Stephen King published THE STAND, a stunning novel that is almost certainly King's finest work - which is no small achievement. If THE STAND is not King's best, however, than THE DEAD ZONE probably is. The plotline, as in most of King's stories, isn't breathtaking: a man awakens from a four-year coma with the ability to see the future and read a person's inner thoughts by touching them. It's King's handling of that plotline that makes the book so utterly …
