I‘m reading Cell for #losersclub. It‘s one of the few Stephen King books that I haven‘t reread yet, so it‘s interesting to go back to it. I was lucky with my walk today. Just when I got back to my car, it started drizzling, but I got to get a picture of the rainbow first. #audiowalk

I‘ve read this book probably a dozen times. It was one of the first King books I got my hands on in high school. It still holds up in a lot of ways. Some really scary stuff in here. Underrated, in my opinion.

The first 30 pages is some of the most demented, terrifying stuff King has ever written. I‘ve read this book countless times and it still packs a punch.

This is also one of my favorite covers.

While clearing out some shelves the other day I ran across this unread book. Back in 1991 I read my first book by this author, which I remember enjoying a lot. I have nothing against zombies or horror but, unlike the other book, this book I really couldn‘t “stand”. #DNF

Ruthiella My own experiences with King have been hit and miss. I would like to try his mysteries however, one of these days.🤔 8mo
inlovewithmyshelf @Ruthiella You gave most of the Stephen King books you‘ve read 4* on goodreads. That‘s mostly a hit! 8mo

This was a reread. I love rediscovering why I‘m such a Stephen King fan! Although, to be honest, I felt like the ending of this one was somewhat of a cop out. 😒 Great story, though!

Reggie I kinda liked the ending. I thought it was hopeful. I remember reading this in the dorms of my college when everyone was away for a holiday weekend and it gave me the creeps in a major way. 10mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit @Reggie I don‘t usually have a problem with ambiguous endings—they provoke some great discussions. The ones I‘ve encountered, though, usually end with a character facing a difficult choice and you don‘t know for sure what they‘re going to choose. In this case, though, the choice was made, and we‘re cheated of knowing the outcome. I guess it‘s hopeful because it could have worked. It also allows a cynic to be satisfied with a doomsday ending. 10mo

Enjoyed this one a lot.

The idea was original and King is definitely the best at writing creepy villains.

I got really attached to the characters and feel sad that I‘ll never know what happened to them 😣

I know there's not that much horror fans on Litsy but I thought I'd continue with this anyway as a bunch of people who do like the genre played along and it was fun and I got a few stacks! 📚

Still new to doing such things, so my questions will improve over time 🤷‍♂️

So...ZOMBIE fans..play along!! 🧟‍♀️

lucifare I just realized I have never read a zombie book, but World War Z is something I always wanted to read. 28 Days Later is probably my favorite movie but it‘s hard to pick because I love all horror movies! 1y

Z is for zombies. I know it‘s already been used, but I‘m such a zombie fan girl that I can‘t pass it up. Cell is the only full length work of King‘s that has zombies (although the revived residents of Pet Sematary are considered zombies by some). Perhaps SK felt they were getting enough attention from other quarters? I haven‘t read Cell in years—time for a reread!

KathyWheeler This was a much better book than I expected it to be. 4y
GarthRanzz This was a good book. Didn‘t deserve the thrashing it got. I want to watch the movie version but I‘m way behind on my King movies. 4y

Here‘s my mom‘s Stephen King collection @TricksyTails that I was telling you about, that I brought down from her attic today while moving. She also had some Tabitha King too, plus of course Richard Bachman‘s books.

TricksyTails OH MY …you hit the freaking lottery!! That's amazing! What a score! Your mom had quite the collection! 😍😍😍😍😍📚📚📚📚 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Maybe by tomorrow, after I rest a bit, I‘ll try to put them in order. 😂 5y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TricksyTails Always Check www.thriftbooks.com they have great used books. That‘s where I got a lot of my Pratchett books. 5y
TricksyTails No kidding! As @sprainedbrain said, it's "ambitious"! We can do this! You're all set and ready! I just want to stare at these shelves. 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TricksyTails Yes, she is a horror fan, always has been. And she loves King, she has all the movies too. 5y

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @TricksyTails After just unloading these to photograph them for you my mom said, “we must have missed some, I‘m pretty sure I have a few more, maybe we need to go back up in the attic and look tomorrow.” I told her, wait until I put them in order and we‘ll see before we climb back up there and dig around again. (There can‘t possibly be any more, right?) 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JenlovesJT47 It was funny, I had just sat down and opened Litsy and I saw your post first and thought, wow must be kismet, I‘ve been looking at a lot of King today myself. I didn‘t see @TricksyTails post until after. 5y

I'm watching Cell the movie and all it's doing is making me want to read Cell again because I thought the book was pretty damn interesting. This movie though is a mess. A hot garbage dumpster fire mess! Like what the hell is this type of mess! I mean what?!

TheNextBook @vivastory Yes, I've only read it once but I actually enjoyed that movie as a movie. From what I remember the movie got some of the essentials and played up the psychotic. But the acting was superb. This movie is no ones best! 😂😫 5y
vivastory 😂 I'm sorry you're suffering through it, but your experience will be a cautionary tale! When I saw King a couple of weeks ago, he raved about the upcoming Netflix adaptation of 1922 5y

TheNextBook Something really eerie (but stupid) happened! Nonsensical as hell but eerie. 5y
Bookzombie I didn't even know this had been released. I really enjoyed the book. (edited) 5y
TheNextBook @Bookzombie stay away from this movie unless! I enjoyed the book too and I have no idea whats going on! Like what in the flying hell is this! It's a mess! 5y
TheNextBook What in the hell just happened? He knew that wasn't his kid!!!! The stupidity!!!! Like why?! And how did he even know that he was there!? I got nothing! 5y
TheNextBook Okay now someone remind me @Bookzombie @MoniqueReads305 @vivastory Was there ever a moment when a guy driving an ice cream truck strapped a bomb around his neck and blew his head off?! Am I forgetting this part?! 5y
vivastory I haven't read the book yet 5y
TheNextBook @vivastory dammit! 😂😂😂 5y
TheNextBook I am so genuinely upset that this movie was such a travesty. Wow!!!! 5y
MoniqueReads305 @TheNextBook No, that wasn't in the book. I read it years ago but I would have remembered a scene where ice cream truck driver blow himself upm 5y
TheNextBook @MoniqueReads305 so it isnt just me not remembering that moment! The ending is completely different too which I am kind of upset by! Like there was no reason to change the ending. 5y
MoniqueReads305 @TheNextBook I'm not a huge fan of the ending but there was no need to change it. I'm going to try and watch it this weekend. I need to see this train wreck. 5y
LauraBrook This is one of the few King‘s that I‘ve read (I know), and I listened to the audiobook at my awful office job probably 12-13 years ago when cell phones were really starting to be a big thing. It creeped the hell out of me! Kind of want to watch this movie - is it streaming? (edited) 5y
TheNextBook @MoniqueReads305 tag me! I need to see what you think. Some moments were cringe worthy! 5y
TheNextBook @LauraBrook it should be ondemand for Showtime. Thats where I watched it. 5y

I don't read Zombie novels. When I think of zombies only two things come to mind. The movie Night of the Living Dead, which I saw for the first time on late night television in about 1972. Then I had to go outside at 3 am to go home and was terrified to leave the house! The other thought was Cell by Stephen King. In it, cell phone users turned into zombies. Love how King uses everyday things to instill fear. #rockinmay #zombie

monkeygirlsmama I still haven't read this though I have had it in my TBR stack for YEARS. 🤦🏻‍♀️I thought the movie was dumb, but with the exception of Misery I've hated all his movies and loved all the books. 5y
CocoReads ThiS is the only King book I started and never finished. Overall, I don't do Zombies either. I may give it another go sometime 5y
Cinfhen Totally forgot about Night of the Living Dead! ☠️☠️☠️ 5y

I was in the hospital a lot as a kid, so my parents would read to me after my surgeries, and sooner or later I turned to books to help me escape. There's not a lot you can do while sitting in a hospital bed or a hotel room, so books let me travel the world and have all the adventures I wanted to when I was little (which is still true)! #jennasfinalproject @pocketmermaid

Reviewsbylola I'm sorry about your hospital stays but that's nice that it enabled you to become a dedicated reader! 5y
cleoh @Reviewsbylola thank you! My last extended stay was when I was 15 (I'm 21 now), and it means I can sit and read for hours, so there's a bright side 😊 5y

Once upon a time, I thought you could only like Stephen King OR Dean Koontz, but never both. So I was prejudiced going into Cell, and I #DNF that baby so fast. One day I might try again, since I know I can love both authors now, but it's low on my TBR of King's stuff #stephenking17

It's hard to resist the impulse to comment that he phoned this one in. I get the feeling his publishers were urging him to get back to "old style King" and this was the result. Not dreadful but poor by his standards
