Archived from the original on June 21, I recommend his followers or anyone who wants to experience a bit of terror to go back and read " The Dead Zone"--does King have a crystal ball? I wish it had been longer and more to it. Amazon takes on the world". Retrieved 14 October


King, just keep feeding that Fornit, I can't wait to see what comes next A Face in the Crowd. Instead of explaining here, I will wait for one of the three sections. I really hate to say it, but yes, the fact it is a short story is what hurt this book, and the reason I gave it a 3 out of 5. There just seemed to be more on the table than what was in the book. The reason I craved more? There could have been a bit more mystery to what was happening.

I figured it out rather quickly as to what was going to happen. Sometimes there is nothing wrong with that. Here there was a problem, though. When you can figure out what is happening in the first few pages of the book, no matter how long it is, it matters about the journey after that. Even though his history was smashed into just a few short pages, Evers history is what made this book. The reasoning behind what happened is enough to read the book. If you have thirty to forty-five minutes to spare, give this book a gander.

Okay, so its no surprise that I am a huuuuuge Stephen King fan. Have been since I was a kid. The thing I love most about reading a King novel is the unexpected. You never know what kind of 'gotcha' moment you're going to get. I bought the ebook copy of Face in the Crowd almost a year ago. It was one of the first ones I bought and And I can say this I was waiting for something to pop out and it didn't.

We meet Dean Evers alone in his condo apartment watching the Red Sox. Its a new habit he picked up after his wife died last year. Strange things start happening while hes watching.

But of course he doesn't believe his old eyes at first. When he sees 'Young Doctor Young' he thinks he's just seeing things. Maybe hes going crazier than a chipmunk on a nut high, maybe not.

As the story unfolds before us Dean sees a new face every game. And yes, that person has expired. He can't seem to fathom why he's seeing the dead. But when he sees his dead wife at the game She reads Dean up one side, down the other then verbally gives him the heave ho in the nuts. Its not long after that when Dean decides to take a taxi to the ball field. There is an easy way to settle this. Though when Dean gets to the ticket booth and asks if a ticket was left by someone for him -and there is- And he is ushered to his seat behind home plate.

While he sits there a friend calls his phone. The man gushes about how an officer came by and told him Dean was dead The cop was wrong. And if his friend was seeing him He' be seeing him soon. I liked this novel. It had me laughing almost all the way through it. The main character Evers himself is a big arrogant ass but.. I wish it had been longer and more to it. I enjoyed it that much.
