One thought on “Desperation

  1. Dirk Grobbelaar

    Why, what a splendid book Gosh Tak I see holes like eyes Desperation is one of the downright scariest books I ve read, and the scares come early King manages, for the most part, to keep the tension up throughout the novel, which makes it one hell of an uneasy read Some sequences are somewhat bizarre, and others are bluntly offensive, although this is only what you d expect from a novel such as this it s not meant to be easy reading after all Something about this bothered him , but for now he pai [...]

  2. Carol

    Yikes U.S 50 is much than the loneliest highway in America when you end up in DESPERATION It all begins with a monstrosity of a 6 7 police officer from hell and a scary trip into town for one unwary traveler after another and once you do make it to town, well, the deadly creep fest begins.This chunkster of a novel is filled with really icky creepy crawlers, horrific gruesome death, and enough blood and gore to fill a movie theatre, but when eleven year old David Carver enters the picture, and s [...]

  3. Nicholas Armstrong

    I m an indecisive rater and my rating on this will probably fluctuate with mood and memory but regardless of that this is a great read What I always found insulting was how easily critics, snobs, and pretentious twits write off Stephen King because he writes stories about realistic people in fantastic situations So what Seriously, he writes amazingly so why give a damn what he writes about Desperation is a perfect example of horror and fantastic writing and anyone who doesn t think so can go sti [...]

  4. Mari Biella

    Say what you will about Stephen King, but you ve got to hand it to our man in Maine sitting down with one of his novels is never a struggle Having read a number of his books, I ve gradually come to think of him as being a bit like an old friend a charming, chatty old friend who, for the price of a paperback, will happily sit down with you and tell you one of his numerous stories, stories whose occasional nastiness seems quite at odds with their mild mannered narrator On this level, Desperation d [...]

    Awesomesauce I closed the book with a wicked smile across my face.First, the boy character made this book.Second, the way this story makes you feel like you re right there Third, how can you not love a 600 page King novel The bigger the better in my opinion One of his best for sure.

  6. Bill Khaemba

    Dolls with no little girls around to mind them were sort of creepy under any conditions TakAs a constant King reader, I was looking forward to diving into his twisted mindset again, for believe it or not this was my first King book this year and immediately from page one it felt like home The whole setting for this book lends itself well to the extreme creepy factor from the ghost town in the middle of a desert to the long stretches of highway that just give this unsettling feeling like somethin [...]

  7. Lane Wilkinson

    So, I dropped the pretention and read a Stephen King novel True, I read several of King s works middle schoolbut I thought that it was time to give him another chance After all, King s popularity is eclipsed only by, oh, I don t knowJesus Well, not Jesusbut someone popular.I ll admit, the story was engaging King has a way with propelling his story lines over hundreds of pages without taking a breath Or so it would seem Unfortunately, the mediocrity of his prose is, at best, distracting and at wo [...]

    In these silences something may rise What a book What a ride Tak This is a story about the little mining town of Desperation Regulating the traffic on the nearby Route 50 is Collie Entragian, who is an absolutely giant madman If you re caught with a license plate number missing or you ve got a flat tire.h luck Collie brings passers by into Desperation where the real nightmare begins.I loved this book from beginning to end, I was hooked from the very first page It s an apocalyptic drama of God an [...]

  9. Jennifer Lynn Harrison

    It has ups and downs and definitely could have trimmed at least 75 pages or so with better editing, I think, but a good read Heavy on the religious aspects, for a King novel After reading this one, though, I ALWAYS have to then immediately read The Regulators , which is the other side of the story written by King s friend, Richard Bachman Jen from Quebec 0

    Here we have it, folks the biggest shock yet in the Stephen King reread Before today, I considered Desperation bottom of the barrel King Desperate King I felt the religiosity was blatant, tasteless the story derivative of things King had done better before Funny how our tastes evolve and change as we get older, isn t it My sole reading of this novel was in my sopho year of high school about six years worth of stuff has happened to me since then What can I say, I was able to appreciate this epic, [...]

  11. TS Chan

    This book together with its companion novel, The Regulators penned by Stephen King under his pseudonym Richard Bachmann, are probably two of the scariest books I ve ever read.

  12. Edward Lorn

    The first time I read Desperation, I read it back to back with The Regulators in the fall 1996 Had I been reviewing in my teenage years, I probably would have given this two stars, and The Regulators four stars The latter is a fun book from beginning to end, while Desperation takes off like a crackhead escaping police custody only to run out of steam about halfway to the sanctuary of his crack den Sad Panda This read was a little bit better than the first because I was expecting the slow as mud, [...]

  13. Jess ❈Harbinger of Blood-Soaked Rainbows❈

    IN THESE SILENCES SOMETHING MAY RISEOi, this book is a doozy I read it months ago but only just finished its companion novel so I think I m finally ready to organize my thoughts and write a review of this thing I know I rated it three stars but that s really only in comparison to King s other work Because compared with other writers, this book is far better, but compared to a lot of his other novels, it is just on the lower end of the Stephen King spectrum for me Which really is too bad because [...]

  14. Samuel Richards-hastings

    UUUUUUUUUUGGGHHHH I FEEL SO BETRAYED BY THIS DUMB BOOK.The first half, maybe even two thirds and I was all HEY THIS MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE KING NOVEL A creepy rural Nevada cop starts kidnapping innocent travelers Like all post AA King, they re all thinly veiled representations of parts of his personality personal history THE COP IS POSSESSED BY AN ANCIENT EARTH GOD WITH POWER OVER THE LOWER BEASTS OF THE DESERT DUDE There s a movie adaptation where RON PERLMAN PLAYS THE COP DOUBLE DUDE And then I [...]

  15. Becky

    This is probably the 4th or 5th time that I ve read this book I have always liked this story, although not as much as it s other half, The Regulators, but I have to say that this time, unfortunately, Desperation lost a little something for me I actually downgraded it from a 4 star to a 3 star rating OK, 3 1 2 maybe Maybe this is due to the fact that I m on something of a King kick, and I ve been reading a lot of his stuff within the past few months I think, because of this, some of his less ende [...]

  16. Ruth Turner

    Audiobook Narrated by Stephen King Surprisingly good narration I say surprisingly good, because years ago I listened to something Stephen King read can t remember what and found his voice to be flat and emotionless So I was severely disappointed when I downloaded this book and found it was narrated by the author But, eventually, I decided to give it a try, and I have to say that I was surprised He did an excellent job It was like having him in my living room, an old friend come to visit, drink c [...]

  17. Todd Western-Normanton

    Absolutely brilliant I am usually a slow reader and expect to take a while to digest a book of great size as this book is over 700 pages long , this book took me less than a week to read The book was gripping at every sentence The characters were formed to high standard and the chills, thrills, elements of horror and survival intensity were peaked beyond my maximum enjoyment I loved King s use of the mad cop in the first few thirds of the book the cops possession of the demonic entity known as T [...]

  18. Adam Light

    Stood up well after nearly twenty years Too tired to put together a long review, but I want to point I reread this one right behind my second trip through It, and was surprised at how many similarities the two share It is a far superior book, of course There was also a nice reference to those pesky tommyknockers, as well On to The Regulators now.

  19. Thomas Strömquist

    For almost 2 3 of this book, I was sure this review would start with This book was better than I remembered , but then most went wrong I do think this is the one I enjoyed least in my King reading project this far except maybe for the short distance I made into the Tower , but that I expected and also maybe The Dark Half , which was a disappointment, but still a way better book than this bloated thing The beginning is both suspenseful and promising and for a quite long while the reading is OK, w [...]

  20. Alissa

    Overall I enjoyed Desperation and I m still planning on reading The Regulators Religion was of a theme with this book than the somewhat subtle undertones King usually uses but it didn t detract much for me I m not religious either, its just something I can accept if its used seriously as part of the story It felt like King relied on it sometimes than he could have though It comes full circle through the characters and while King managed to create characters with human flaws, desires and though [...]

  21. Steve

    Just can t get into this one, nothing really compelling me to keep reading Into the abandoned book pile it goes.

  22. Patricio

    In these silences something may rise Honestly, Desperation took me aback in many ways This book is different from everything else I have read by Stephen King so far because it is really focused on religion and beliefs, but some of the characters are not that compelling.The giant cop Collie Entragian regulates the traffic on Route 50, and those who don t obey the law are taken to Desperation, where strange things have happened In that place, an ancient evil force resides, and is getting stronger. [...]

    Ovdje sam po inio grijeh i pogledao sam film prvo Ali to je bilo davno, prije nekih 10 godina Kod filma se samo sje am da mi se mnogo dopao to se pri e gotovo sam sve zaboravio, to je izgleda i dobro u neku ruku.Meni je pri a stvarno prijala, po elio sam horor, tra io sam horor i dobio sam horor sa ovom pri om I ja sam osoba kojoj smeta jedan deus ex machina pred kraj pri e, jer to mi pokazuje da pisac nije imao pojma kako da zavr i pri u i tu onda malo vara Kod ove knjige se odma na po etku vid [...]

  24. Jeremy Bates

    One thing I find fascinating is how many critics write off Stephen King as a hack because he writes horror novels Unlike literary authors, who write about extraordinary people in regular situations, King writes about regular people in extraordinary situations, and that s just fine with me.Desperation is reminiscent of King s magnum opus The Stand, and King revisits many familiar themes such as good versus evil, salvation, redemption, faith, so forth There s also a lot of blood and gore, which mi [...]

  26. Mary

    It s pretty much guaranteed that if Stephen King wrote it, I ll like it I can t honestly say that this is one of his best books It s certainly very menacing, and extremely tense, but it was also kind of predictable and the ending seemed a bit too easy A lot of King endings are vaguely unsatisfying, though, and I blame that primarily on the fact that he builds up the story so much that there s really no way to end it on a satisfying note.Still, something about Desperation got to me It played a lo [...]
