    I am currently reading The Long Walk. It is one of those books that I can't seem to stop reading, but can only take in small doses. The grueling emotions in it are hard to take at times. To me, this is what SK does best.

    I'm still wondering where the movie is. This story would not be hard to translate to the silver screen, and man, would it be heinous to watch.

    Frank Darabont, where art thou?

    It could be done and you're right Frank Darabont would be the right man.

    Who do you think should play Ray Garraty's role?

    Never gave that much thought as I've always had just a generic view of the kid in my head. This movie would be full of a lot of young actors, which as a general rule would make me avoid it. Young adult shows and movies today I avoid due to the fact most of the actors and actresses come off as entitled, perfect hair and looks, Abercrombie & Fitch model type d-bags. I think the tone of this story, with the casting of boys who look like they're from the lower class of society, and Darabont at the helm, would pull the trick.
