Outsider
Outsider | Stephen King
An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories. An eleven-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad. As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King's propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

The Outsider is everything I want in a book - a great mystery, really interesting characters, and a hint of the supernatural. The story begins with the horrific death of a child, and the arrest of a local coach and hero for his murder. There is a multitude of evidence for his guilt, but video footage shows him 70 miles away at the time of the murder. I was kept guessing throughout, there was no let up of tension, and I loved it.

Goodreads 31/52

Dang I like to be scared. I‘m a weirdo. And this one definitely evokes the heebie jeebies, the checking of closets, under beds... maybe the shower. Don‘t judge. 😂😂 Not the best King book ever but a solid addition to his canon.

This book sucked me right in, I just simply couldn't put it down! (Thanks to bad IBS forcing me to stay home, I didn't have to 😅) My first Stephen King and I'll definitely pick up more books written by him. It was so good, though the last 100 - 150 pages were a little less in my opinion, it was still a great read.

A murder mystery/detective story crossover with a Stephen King supernatural story. It did take sometime to get to the supernatural part of the story.

King is my favorite author in terms of consistency and he is responsible for my favorite series, The Dark Tower. This book was filled with many of those things that I love so much about King‘s writing- remarkably deep character development, his ability to make me care about the characters, the horror and vividness of the imagery. My only issue is that the story felt short somehow and the ending didn‘t feel as complete as I had hoped it would.

This book was very good. I had no idea it was apart of the Mr Mercedes series until about 30% through which cake as a big surprise to me. I may be a bit biased, I love Kong‘s work. If you are on the fence, definitely check it out.

I was entertained but not wow‘ed. I was into the first part of the book before the supernatural element, but it all got a bit predictable from there. Also, the Danish translation was pretty bad - spelling errors, bad translations and just a bit clunky...

The Outsider by Stephen King is a brutal and suspenseful tale that centers around an unspeakable crime.

With various eye witnesses, fingerprints, and DNA matches, the case seems pretty cut and dry. However, the police soon begin to question their original convictions once they find that the suspect has a solid alibi...

Cinfhen I don‘t have a good track record with King 🤷‍♀️ 2mo
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen I have only read two of his books, aside from this, and I have enjoyed them, but they didn‘t wow me. I thought this was “just” going to be a mystery, but now there might be something supernatural going on, and I‘m not sure how I feel about that. Or, if I‘m just supposed to think something supernatural is going on, but there will be a logical explanation in the end. I‘m confused... 🙃 2mo

So I am an absolute fan of the early works of Stephen King, like the 70s, 80s and early 90s. But I think he just went downhill from there. This book is a huge exception. It is so good, well-written, complex and scary, it reminded me of the time when he actually was the King of horror (no pun intended). If you like horror, you should give it a go!

Stephen King appears to have created a new kind of monster in this book. I‘ve always liked King as a writer and I did enjoy this book. The only quibble I have is the story is set in Oklahoma, which seems a little odd. Good characters, as usual, and a good story. He includes a character from another book and she fits in fine. I am happy that the monster isn‘t a vampire or a zombie. 4 out of 5 stars.

This was my first Stephen King book. Shocking since all I read for the most part is thrillers, murder mysteries, etc. I kind of had no clue what to expect going in. Once I realized where the storyline was headed it was losing me. I don‘t enjoy those types of things and I‘ll leave it at that so I don‘t give anything away. While I semi struggled to get through the last quarter of the book I still enjoyed it for the most part.

I‘ve been a fan since Carrie came out in paperback. Started this afternoon, and finished before dinner in one great rush. He is a wonderful storyteller, and the pacing was perfect. And when Things went sideways, one of my favorite characters (Holly from Mr.Mercedes)rides in like the calvary. This is so the kind of story King does so very well; human and supernatural. Last library book completed so now I can start the new Marlon James!

Running very late to work because I just *had* to finish this. At the end of the day this book was all good creepy fun, very enjoyable, but nothing spectacular. Yet I couldn't put it down. If there's one thing King is good at, it's keeping the pages turning!

A companion novel to the Bill Hodges trilogy, this book gives us more of King's brand of detectives and more Holly Gibney, whom Patton gives an excellent voice to. Technically a stand alone, but you'll get much more out of the second half if you read Mr. Mercedes.

Absolutely loved it! Reminded me of why Stephen King was one of my favorite authors back in my younger days - this was the first time in 20 years I‘ve sat down with one of his books. It didn‘t disappoint. I love how his novels really make you ponder the darker side of human nature.
