Publisher Description

Stephen King's bestselling apocalyptic thriller.

'Civilization slipped into its second dark age on an unsurprising track of blood but with a speed that could not have been foreseen by even the most pessimistic futurist. By Halloween, every major city from New York to Moscow stank to the empty heavens and the world as it had been was a memory.'

The event became known as The Pulse. The virus was carried by every cell phone operating within the entire world. Within hours, those receiving calls would be infected.

A young artist Clayton Riddell realises what is happening. He flees the devastation of explosive, burning Boston, desperate to reach his son before his son switches on his little red mobile phone . . .

Half Vintage King

A great first half is let down by a limp ending. What starts as a thrill ride full of action and some genuine scary moments is then replaced by a tepid road journey. For the most part this is King at his best, but the ending just doesn’t do it for me.

Interesting and disturbing concept!

Great book with a terrible ending

Meh

The book is decent by regular standards, but coming from Stephen King I found it to be a bit lackluster in the character development department compared to his other works.
