    True. We all have our likes and dislikes. I loved it myself. Such dystopian and hopeless vision of the future. Kind of an ambiguous ending, too.

    This is actually my favorite of his "Bachman" books, a close second being his modernish re-tooling of OF MICE AND MEN entitled BLAZE.

    i'm curious if anyone knows the name of the walker who died and came back? i've never noticed this. is everyone sure it just wasn't a generic last name that might have belonged to two walkers? not that i disbelieve, because i've seen my share of mistakes in a lot of his works, mostly curious

    It's in a thread somewhere around here. I don't have the time (or gumption again) to go chasing it down. Bev Vincent would probably know it off the top of his head.

    This is in my top five. I have read and re-read it more times than I can count, but I don't recall any long walker who died and came back.

    Cause you weren't looking, pilgrim. =D He's in there. Dies rather early on, if I remember correctly then just 'shows up' later. Nothing zombie-like or anything, just reappears.

    Dang, how the heck could I have missed something like that?? I don't have a copy of the book, could you tell me who it was in a spoiler? Now I'm really curious to know!

    He isn't a major character in the book.
