Interesting how close they are together... cool....
It's my favorite Stephen King novel.
The main character is entirely likable and relatable and trapped by circumstances into doing something horrible against every principle he has. The bad guy is one of the best because he's set up so well to be unlikable yet believable. The love interest story is sad and sweet. And the ending just topped it off very nicely in the mood of the book.
Loved this one.
I enjoyed the TV series, too, but with the understanding that it and the book are not the same. You have character names that are the same, but that's where you leave it, and then enjoy it or not on its own merits.
It seems I read or heard him describe what inspired The Dead Zone, though I might be thinking of another book instead. On an aside, sK has said that he recommends this book as an sK starter.
In On Writing, he says the seed of the project was
can someone believably and sympathetically be led to attempt a political assassination?
or something to that effect.
Yes, I remember that. Maybe that's what I was thinking. My impression after reading was of a very well-written book. Curiously, I decided, when thinking of which sK to suggest to a friend wanting to know where to start, that this was my choice for her. Then later read that sK himself also recommends it.
I'm loving it thus far.
