A dark and electrifying novel about addiction, fanaticism, and what might exist on the other side of life.In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobsincluding Jamies mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession. When tragedy strikes the Jacobs family, this charismatic preacher curses God, mocks all religious belief, and is banished from the shocked town. Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from the age of thirteen, he plays in bands across the country, living the nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll while fleeing from his familys horrific loss. In his mid-thirtiesaddicted to heroin, stranded, desperateJamie meets Charles Jacobs again, with profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devils devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings. This rich and disturbing novel spans five decades on its way to the most terrifying conclusion Stephen King has ever written. Its a masterpiece from King, in the great American tradition of Frank Norris, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe.

I haven‘t been reading much in print lately as life has been interfering and I find myself vegging out to T.V. more (currently bingeing CSI:NY). Even so, I managed to listen to enough audiobooks to get a free book from my library‘s summer reading program. #free #librarylove #sapl #overthemoon #somanykingstoread

The overall theme of this book is about the people that come and go in our life. The ending is somewhat like Lovecraft , and borders in the sci-fi genre. The speech Charles Jacobs gives in this book gave me chills. It is worth reading for that monologue alone. It also juxtaposes faith with atheism. Based on those elements I would recommend this book. If you read it , I hope you find it as entertaining as I did.

“On the way home I remembered a bit of old folklore about how to boil a frog. You put it in cold water, then start turning up the heat. If you do it gradually, the frog is too stupid to jump out. I don't know if it's true or not, but I decided it was an excellent metaphor for growing old.”

Wow! That was bleak. I know it is Stephen King...but boy, was it bleak. The antagonist‘s arc was the most interesting and is what kept it a pick for me. His endgame is able to be surmised quickly, but the resolution is put off for so long, I began to wonder how and even if it was going to happen. If you like a slow burn story about obsession, addiction, and death (and ants) - this is your book.

Different from all the other King novels I‘ve read, but not in a bad way. The actual horror element was the part I liked the least, it felt out of place and didn‘t have much effect.

“But who is screenwriting our lives? Fate or coincidence? When I think of Charles Jacobs, I can‘t bear to believe his presence in my life had anything to do with fate. It would mean that all these terrible things - these horrors - were meant to happen. If that is so, then there is no such thing as light, and our belief in it is a foolish illusion.”

A novel that tells the story of a messing w/ powers that one should not mess with. Jamie Morton meets Pastor Danny Jacobs who loses touch w/ his faith after a terrible accident & therefore begins to look for what is beyond death‘s door. Jamie & Jacobs cross paths throughout Jamie‘s life & mess w/ things they shouldn‘t ending in circumstances that were not seen by Jamie or Jacobs.
Finally, finished after a weekend break due to work & tiredness.

I got through a good bit of my latest audiobook today while traveling to a doctor's appointment.

Then I got quite a surprise when I discovered my appointment was in the complex where the Penguins play.

Also read my way through a lovely bowl of crawfish etouffee between appointments. All in all, not a terrible day.

Overall good book by one of my favorite authors but not especially scary. I enjoyed the character development during the first part of the book more than the ending. I cared for Jamie and wanted to see things work out for him but I spent a lot of time waiting for the other shoe to drop.
The audio was very well done.

I always enjoy a good Stephen King, but this one won‘t be added to my favorites list. Not much happens for the first 370 pages, but the last 30 are WEIRD in true King fashion.

The ultimate love letter to H.P. Lovecraft. The story was engaging and tragic, and the ending was absolutely horrifying. A spectacularly realized story of human nature and the expression of grief. Read. This. Book. #revival #stephenking #lovecraft

R is for Revival
Two reasons for today‘s pick:
1. King mentions my hometown 😍. Owen & his wife live and work nearby, so he‘s getting some inspiration from the Hudson Valley. Joe has mentioned it as, well.
2. I think this is the most terrifying of all King‘s books. His vision of the afterlife here - and thus the meaning of our lives on Earth - is unlike anything else he‘s written. I was depressed for a week after reading it.

GarthRanzz I was just mentioning I really remember nothing of this book other than I liked it. Guess I need to read it again. 😊 2y

My recommendations would be the James Patterson Women‘s Murder Club Series. They‘re an easy crime read and I find it satisfying that they‘re numbered in order so you always know which is next!
Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter was brilliant and creepy.
The Grownup by Gillian Flynn was a great creepy, short story an Sharp Objects by her!
