    I started to read it when it came out but seemed so shallow I never finished it ...maybe worth a re read then .

    Let me know how it goes. For me, it was like walking through very thick quicksand .... am reading Full Dark, No Stars and what a relief and pleasure!!!!!!

    It will be a surprise exam sometime in the future when you least except it. So maybe a re-read is in order lol.

    Hi Rich - I actually finished it, but it was a struggle. I thought it might be "just me" but had no problem getting through Revival (which I actually read BEFORE I read Cell) and am having no problem with Full Dark, No Stars. Just not the kind of book that speaks to me I guess.

    Upon reading this thread, I have learned something about myself as a reader. Thorough character development is apparently not necessary for me to enjoy a story if there is enough action lol. It never even crossed my mind as something to care about when I read it. The action carried the story from beginning to end for me...and quickly.

    That's a great observation. Cell is NOT a "bad" piece of writing, just not for me. Well said

    Cell is one of the only King books I really dislike. The Regulators and Firestarter are the others.

    Lol, I loved Regulators too. I know a lot of people don't.

    All I remember of The Regulators is a bunch of people dying gory deaths, a kid covered in spaghetti-O's, and a ton of Beatles references.
