    I really liked the Cell! I too put off reading it but I can honestly say its my favorite "zombie" book ever and that includes I Am Legend. The cell had moments of complete freak out gore and full on laughter for me. Very under-rated "fun" read and yes, has some fantastic philosophical under-layers. But mostly just pure ridiculous gore/fun. Oh...and I really liked the ending!

    Cell isn't one of his best, but it's kind of a change of pace for him. It's short, to the point, and a ton of fun. If I'm gonna read something like this, which is the equivalent of just a fun popcorn movie, I definitely prefer it be written by someone as talented as King.

    Oh, it was a fun, quick read. Not the best, but, shoot fire, son, so much better than most of the crap out there. It was quickly dated, however. I mean, nowadays, who the heck answers a call from a number they don't recognize?

    Maybe he should do a sequel. Text, wherein everybody gets some odd text that drives em nuts before they know what happens.

    :lol: That thought had not occurred to me, but something along those lines:idea: like Tweet. Not really, but how about if a forwarded chain letter drove enough people over the edge that they reverse or amplify the effect by writing it backwards by hand, and snail mail to the last ten people who sent them one. Those ten people become robots.:nrvs:

    You must really like that ham to quote it twice like that!

    Edit: okay - sorry I missed your comment. No - it is for health reasons I gave up the fatty stuff I really used to like - bacon, pork roast etc. I grew up on that stuff.

    What was harder was giving up caffeine as I went through some big withdrawal headaches during that.
