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.

I resisted starting Stephen King's Cell mostly because cell phones have evolved so much since 2006, as has our relationship to them. What was once a new and feared gadget is now more common than ever. (Seriously, it's only a matter of time before we think of ourselves as cyborgs, and not in a sarcastic way.) And King's a bit of a technophobe, at least in his stories, so I thought whatever anxieties cell phones caused 10 years ago would be so much worse today. Also, I'm not really into zombies so there's that too.

Turns out most of my initial impressions were unfounded. Cell is a fun, post-apocalyptic adventure. Give it a try.

I hated the ending! Sounded like a 'Cell 2" coming soon .

Sometimes King just goes on and on and on close to the end of his books. The book was OK.

It is a fantastic four story about novena and James,. That is all,. Thanks,. James Rebeiro.
It's epic moment is very good but written in French language with English Monogram, so that everyone of us go to heaven and become Jesus's son & daughter,. at last we think of Heaven and last procure comes to end lebu and thus go to solemn duty,. and bird & beauty soon come to us and we get resuraction,. James Rebeiro,. Thanks,.

Gory. Not his best. Some moments of suspense but the ending is a fizzle.

Great premise, interesting story, good characters, and then it all falls apart and gets incredibly boring and stupid.

An excellent book. I wish that we had gotten to find out what happened at the ending with his son but it was still awesome. Just read it.
