Publisher Description

Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine

A #1 New York Times bestseller about a man who wakes up from a five-year coma able to see people’s futures and the terrible fate awaiting mankind—a “compulsive page-turner” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).

Johnny Smith awakens from a five-year coma after his car accident and discovers that he can see people’s futures and pasts when he touches them. Many consider his talent a gift; Johnny feels cursed. His fiancée married another man during his coma and people clamor for him to solve their problems.

When Johnny has a disturbing vision after he shakes the hand of an ambitious and amoral politician, he must decide if he should take drastic action to change the future. With “powerful tension that holds the reader to the story like a pin to a magnet” (The Houston Post), The Dead Zone is a “faultlessly paced…continuously engrossing” (Los Angeles Times) novel of second sight.

Craigdarin ,

The Dead Zone is riveting and prescient.

I saw the 1983 movie first. Had never had occasion to read the book until I heard Steven King compare the book’s antagonist, Greg Stillson, to Donald Trump when giving an interview. I remembered from the movie how true the comparison was but wanted to now read the book—a book examines and provides more insight into its characters than a movie can ever do. The foreshadowing of Trump in the character of Stillson is amazing. Donald Trump is the real-life Greg Stillson, and Steven King predicted his coming in this novel, The Dead Zone.

The book is riveting. You can’t put it down. Bravo, Mr. King. You are a genius writer.

Dead Zone

Awesome read!

ES the horror fan ,

A terrifying journey into The Dead Zone!

I’ve, of course, never read this book as an ebook, only as a print book. However you want to read it, on your phone or on the printed page, this is a terrific book from the imagination of Stephen King! While I disagree with any reviewers who claim that horror fans wouldn’t really enjoy this book, I 💯 agree with all who claim that it’s an enjoyable, emotional, thought-provoking drama. This enthralling book makes readers really stop and think about what it might be like to have such extraordinary psychic powers while using the subject to tell an eerie, occasionally terrifying, tale of suspense and horror. While it’s nowhere near King’s most critically acclaimed book, it’s a great read that I think all of his fans will enjoy! It will always be a favorite of mine!
