I have always heard that Stephen King is a great author and I should read his books. Revival is the first Stephen King book that I read. At first I really loved the book and the concept, however, the ending left me feeling disappointed. I felt that the afterlife after death lacked description and detail. I felt cheated because the first seven chapters were great and left me wanting more. The last two chapters left me feeling that he abruptly ran out of ideas. I felt he ran out of ideas and ended the book. However, my theory is that Jamie Morton was mentally ill and made the whole thing up and just pieced together stories from real life. He tracked down Charles Daniel Jacobs and kills him because of the traumatic consequences of the "terrible sermon." What are your thoughts or theories of the meaning of the book? Do you people think that the vision of the afterlife and the events leading up to it actually occurred or that Jamie fabricated the whole story as a result of being mentally ill?
