    After the initial Pulse scene, it went a little slow for me and I picked it up several times and then stopped reading several times before committing to the book. However, once the group really starts moving, the pace is steady and each scene in the book serves to move the story forward. I liked the characters a lot. I thought they were crafted well to make them instantly accessible and meaningful to the readers.

    I'm a huge fan of the ending. I'm better with open ended endings with SK than with some of his explanations in other books. I've had more than one experience in which I found the actual ending to be a letdown. For me, SK creates such scary, suspenseful atmosphere that once the climax hits and all is explained, I feel deflated. Cell did not let me down, however.

    And I really liked that toward the end Denise calls to St. Anthony to help her find something lost. There's no doubt in my mind that this is a reference to Tony from The Shining and Doctor Sleep, who helped Danny find lost things.

    I also agree, one minute I was loving the story and the next I was ready to stop reading it. There was a lot of wasted time but I do love SK's writing no matter what; didn't quite understand the ending or how the book could possibly end.

    I agree totally - couldn't recommend the book nor sure about the ending - my opinion might be different if the ending was different - I almost did not finish reading the book even after being drawn in from the beginning.

    Hey, you know not all books have to be filet mignon. Sometimes a quick hamburger is good too.

    Problem is before you know it you're snorting pulp fiction.

    Cell - I'm about 120 pages into the book and I find it BETTER as I go along. Took a while, but, finally I'm officially "into it".
    Hope to finish it by the end of the weekend.

    I enjoyed it. I think we are all a little over saturated with zombies at the moment, but it was an original take on how everyone got "infected". I like that is was a nod to his friend George A. Romero. I am looking forward to the movie, I think that Cusack and Jackson worked well together in 1408, so maybe a bit of miscasting but with the good chemistry and already familiar and worked on a King story I will certainly give it a chance.

    Boy, are we ever. Every other book on Book Bub is about zombies. I never really understood some elements of Cell. I won't say more since I don't know how to use spoiler tags.

    When you write a message, a tool bar pops up. There is a rectangle that contains a happy face. Do you see that? Go to the far right icon in that box, it's a letter looking icon (I think that's what it is), right next to the negative movie clip icon.

    Click on that. It will pull up a box and spoiler is in the box. So, write what you want, highlight it and click on that box and hit the spoiler tag, it should spoiler it for you.
