    Literary critics can moan all they want about Stephen King's "penny dreadful" oeuvre, but his mastery at the craft of storytelling is indisputable. King writes his novels like a seduction, the story unfolding delicately and deliberately. As any Stephen King fan knows, his coy expositor...

    I don?t know where to start. I don?t know what to say. I own about 30 Stephen King books, I believe I have read them all. Strange enough, it seems like just as I started getting into the King of Horror, his talent began to dwindle. I think it was when I was in sixth grade that I st...

    You know, I'm pretty sure he said he was retiring a few years ago. Not that I'm complaining, mind you - this was a fun read. I just figure we should never trust a writer when they say they're done. This is like crack to them, I suppose. With this book, King is back to my favorite st...

    There have been many who have compared Stephen King's Cell with his earlier Apocalypse-Now effort, The Stand. And there are some good reasons, End-of-the-World setting, the survivors polarized into two camps, one camp, arguably no longer even human, a big bang ending in an arena like s...

    Stephen King does zombies! Well...kind of. We'll get to that in a bit. But first, here's how I think this book came about: Way back in aught-6 (2006), or just before because Cell was published in '06, but who knows with King, am I right? But anyway, we've come a long way since th...

    I suddenly realised half way through this book that it is really a zombie novel. After a shower I felt better and rationalised that this was occupying my "wouldn't normally read this" slot in my book consumption; sigh of relief. I must admit that I did enjoy some of King's early nove...

    This was a classic Stephen King novel! Roller coaster ride of thrills, twists, and turns! I read the first half of the book in one night as I could not put it down. Last night I finished the other half. The book is about cell phones that get hit with a pulse phenomenon that practically...

    Yay! Another successful King re-read! I read Cell when it first came out and I loved it. I?ve wanted to do a reread since hearing the whispers about the movie production. All I needed to hear was John Cusack and I knew it would be gold. I mean, seriously. The guy has ...

    I love Stephen King but his stories always give me nightmares. This one is no different. On a beautiful autumn morning everyone on a cell phone is simultaneously hit with a message that scrambles their brains and turns them into zombies. From there the story gets progressively scarier ...

    For some reason, I had seen quite a few bad reviews on Cell before I read it. Not one to usually dislike a King novel, I did go into this one without the highest of expectations and ended up being very pleasantly surprised. The story centers around a mass event that turns anyone who...

    3.5 Stars.....Ok, I do believe I'm with the 'don't like the ending' readers on this one, but oh what a beginning!Clay is happy........he just sold his first graphic novel and can't wait to share the news with his estranged (but loved) wife and 12 year old son; and as it turns out, luck...

    A small group of survivors of the so call "The Pulse" event , which happened during our obsession with cellphones, comes together and goes from place to place, searching for a safe heaven and a word about their loved ones who turned into zombie-like drones commonly refereed to as "phon...

    Five stars for the first half. One star for the last 200 pages, wherein King drags his ass like a dog infested with roundworms. Cell is a five-star read all the way up to the halfway mark. You got crazies running around, nom nom nomming on tender bits, and a likable crew of misfits...

    Odli?an po?etak pri?e, radnja sasvim zadovoljavaju?a iako se javlja ose?aj ve? vi?enog i onda bezvezan zavr?etak. Jednog sasvim obi?nog dana dobar deo ljudi je, na prvi pogled ni?im izazvano, potpuno podivljao. Momentalno po?inje borba za pre?ivljavanje - odre?en broj ...

    It?s the best book I?ve read after A Song Of Ice And Fire! The characterization and the narration is incredibly amazing. It catches the reader?s interest from the first line to the very last word. Yes! The story starts minutes before The Pulse occurred and takes us through the...

    4.5 Once again Mr. King shows why he is a master. I wouldn't rank this one among his best, but that is because he has done so many masterpieces that it is hard to compete. But I still thought this was a great book. King used some basic concepts; cell phone usage, zombies, and ...

    My overall feelings on this book? Meh... but in a good way. I'm a huge Stephen King fan, but I think I'm going to start defining my adoration for him by a certain era. I find I love his earlier stuff, but don't particularly love (or sometimes even like) his later stuff. 'Cell' is a...

    So this is a King re read for me. I reviewed it the first time at 4 stars and I'm deciding now, upon reading it again, to dock a star. Let's start with Clay, I like Clay as a protagonist but he's not one of King's more memorable main characters. If we were to rank him, he'd probably f...

    No me gust este libro de King. La idea desde el primer momento me pareci ridcula, y no me equivoqu. Y no solo es ridcula, sino que tiene un final bastante insatisfactorio. Adems, como dato de color: jams me han gustado los zombis. ...

    I am actually not the biggest Stephen King fan. I went through a kick where some of my favorite old-ish movies, I was going back and reading the books they had been made from - Jaws, The Exorcist, Silence of the Lambs. So of course, I wound up hunting down quite a few Stephen King book...

    Un libro de King que la verdad casi no termino. La primera parte es excelente, gil, cautivante, cruda: lo cual es de esperarse de mi autor favorito y, pens que este libro me iba a encantar porque es uno de mis gneros favoritos en el mundo: post apocalptico. Pero, sincera...

    De los mejores libros de King. Me recordo a The Stand, pero claro, esta es una version mas ligera. El apocalipsis golpea en forma de seal telefonica. Zombies vivos persiguen a los no conversos. Que les deparara a los cuerdos, quienes deben luchar para sobrevivir. Creyeron que ...

    I would give this one 31/2 stars. I've read better and worse by King. Not very scary, interesting idea and take on a kind of Zombie like Apocalypse. Great book to read while waiting for a plane. ;-) ...

    Zombie sotto carica Inqualificabile romanzo che anela al ribaltamento di alcuni clich horror ben radicati - le figure di riferimento sono Matheson e Romero -, ma che crolla in maniera ingiustificata a causa di una narrazione pi fiacca del sottoscritto dopo il test di Cooper; n...

    DNF-60% I have tried reading this book for no shit.. over a month, at 60%, I just can't anymore, life is too short and there are so many books out there for me to read and love. I'm bored and frustrated. The start was really strong and drew me in but then it just went downhill from ...

    "What Darwin was too polite to say, my friends, is that we came to rule the earth not because we were the smartest, or even the meanest, but because we have always been the craziest, most murderous motherfuckers in the jungle." Cell is an apocalyptic tale about mobile phones that wi...
