    How fair is this? On Halloween, we creep into Stephen King?s lair for terrors and scares, but here he is offering us insight and courage instead. You?ll chew through a few chapters of ?Elevation? before realizing there is no razor blade in this caramel apple. King?s new novel...

    This was a one sitting reading that I really enjoyed. It began in the thick of it, which is one of King's talents. Yes, he always draws a humongous background, but he does that organically, throughout the tale, using memory, flashback and other techniques. But he almost always begins w...

    ?Gravity is the anchor that pulls us down into our graves.? Surprisingly philosophical, Stephen King has written an uplifting tale (hehehe) that many readers are enjoying. As the main character's body starts to lose the pounds that trigger gravity, everything he touches gets li...

    An interesting little book! I recommend listening to the audiobook, which is read by King himself. ...

    You know the end of the world is coming when Stephen King writes stories that are only 160 pages long. Or at least I thought so until a true King fan educated me. *lol* Seriously though, I saw this in my TL only the other day because many others here have read it and I didn't know a...

    King novella! Half of this novella is a feel-good friendship fest and the other half is a dark fantasy meeting together in a soft chewy center of miscommunication, making friends, and body-horror. But because it's King, and he likes to mess with us, he doesn't give us a chill-fe...

    This was... really disappointing. I love a good Stephen King book. From the classics like The Shining and Carrie, to the recent The Outsider and Sleeping Beauties, I just think he's a really great storyteller with a knack for strong character development. But Elevation didn't e...

    I'm probably at 3.5 stars or a little higher, so I rounded up. When I decided to read Stephen King's new novella, Elevation , at around 11:00 p.m. last night, I will admit I wondered what I was thinking. Would my reward for checking out King's latest be a nightmare or two? I nee...

    It is always nice to turn one?s attention to a piece by Stephen King, where reality can sometimes take a backseat to entertainment. Some bemoan this, though is fiction not supposed to be a chance to suspend beliefs, if only for a short time? Scott Carey appears to be a robust man. Wh...

    So this little book has caused quite a stir in the horror community. And it isn't even horror. To be honest, I gave it 4 stars immediately after reading it, and since then I've had numerous chats and read a number of reviews, and I realize that the small problem I originally had with t...

    Well, we're back in Castle Rock again, but not for a scary horror-type KING read this time around....although there is a Halloween dance with mention of a band named Pennywise and the Clowns.. ELEVATION fits more of a fantasy type category....has an uplifting, hopeful message and polit...

    I'm crowning this book The Worst Thing Stephen King has Ever Published. Die-hard conservatives are going to hate ELEVATION because of the gender politics. SJWs are going to hate it because the LGBTQ characters in the book literally need a straight cis white man to help them win. Ev...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Elevation isn?t what you would typically expect from someone known as the ?Master of Horror.? It is, however, most definitely a story you might expect to hear from your favorite relative ? Uncle Stevie. Simply put...

    A fine little story and a quick read.  It was, dare I say, uplifting?  Yes, uplifting and explosive, in its own small way. ...

    After a couple of recent monsters (both size of book and characters within), King gives us a novella that reads quickly and could easily been a part of a short story collection. In fact, I think it is considerably shorter than several of the novellas in his collections like Four Past M...

    Nov 04, 2018
    Feel-good novel of the year? Here Stephen King steps aside from horror to write a poignant little novella on unity, tolerance and rising above the fray. Of course there is also a supernatural twist. For me it works because of its brevity and not in spite of it. Just enough is explained...

    I?m not going to mess around with this one: me and King are completely through. I?m going to keep my review short and simply say that he doesn?t work for me. I hate the way he writes. I hate the way he puts sentences together and I hate the way he forms characters. I don?t ...

    Please read this review *after* you've read this book for yourself. For some brief, non spoilerly thoughts, I did a mini review on my Instagram. SPOILERS & PLOT DETAILS BELOW I'm always excited when I hear of a new Stephen King book (of any length, genre, collaboration, collectio...

    3.5 Muy buen libro. Hacía mucho que no leía nada de King. Sus más recientes trabajos no me han llamado demasiado la atención, pero en Elevation intuí que me podría encontrar con algo diferente (y además es corto). Ahora, apenas terminado, puedo confirmarlo: esto es algo basta...

    Elevation by Stephen King is a mysterious book with a man losing weight but looking the same size. He even is the same weight regardless of what he is wearing too! He is losing weight daily and doesn't know why. It gets pretty crazy and there are other things going on in town too! Grea...

    I am not in love with this book, I am not even in like. It is nothing at all what I wanted or expected it to be. I wanted horror and I wanted it to be told across a shit-ton of pages. I did not want a short little story that barely scratched my King itch. I know it is not right for me ...

    In America's current polarized political climate in terms of human rights, discrimination and LGBTQ+ acceptance, Elevation is right on time but not the typical King horror story as usual. Much like his excellent and quirky 2004 miniseries Kingdom Hospital, this book is more about mutua...

    Fee-fi-fo-fum. I felt like a giant holding this tiny book in my hand. Well, it's been said that good things come in small packages. In this case, the saying is true, for the most part. Deserving of it's own hardcover printing? I don't know my own answer to that question at the moment. ...

    I thought that this would be a nice scary Halloween story. I was wrong. Instead of feeling scared, I cried my eyes out. It was not what I expected, but it was so much much better. P.S. Any resemblance to the book Thinner by Richard Backman is purely coincidental. ...

    DNF. A bare-bones story as weightless as its main character. (Also, the stereotypical portrayal of conservatives and the problematic writing of the lead gay characters make this a total non-starter.) ...

    Oct 04, 2018
    Here's the thing about Stephen King a lot of people don't get. At the center of most?not all, but most?of his books is a gushing, bleeding heart that believes in the decency of humans and their capacity to love. Admittedly, this is usually buried under supernatural terror, gore, an...

    "Everything leads to this, he thought. To this elevation." Scott Carey is steadily losing weight, but he doesn't look any different. To make things even weirder, he weighs the same in and out of clothes, no matter how heavy they are? When I'm reading a book, and because my memo...
