    One thought on “Desperation

    1. Dirk Grobbelaar on said:

      Why, what a splendid book. Gosh! Tak.”I see holes like eyes.”Desperation is one of the downright scariest books I’ve read, and the scares come early. King manages, for the most part, to keep the tension up throughout the novel, which makes it one hell of an uneasy read. Some sequences are somewhat bizarre, and others are bluntly offensive, although this is only what you’d expect from a novel such as this: it’s not meant to be easy reading after all. Something about this bothered [him], [...]

      Yikes! U.S. 50 is much more than "the loneliest highway in America" when you end up in DESPERATION!It all begins with a monstrosity of a 6' 7" police officer from hell and a scary trip into town for one unwary traveler after another; and once you do make it to town, well, the deadly creep-fest begins.This chunkster of a novel is filled with really icky creepy crawlers, horrific & gruesome death, and enough blood and gore to fill a movie theatre, but when eleven year old David Carver enters t [...]

    3. Nicholas Armstrong on said:

      I'm an indecisive rater and my rating on this will probably fluctuate with mood and memory but regardless of that this is a great read. What I always found insulting was how easily critics, snobs, and pretentious twits write-off Stephen King because he writes stories about realistic people in fantastic situations. So what? Seriously, he writes amazingly so why give a damn what he writes about? Desperation is a perfect example of horror and fantastic writing and anyone who doesn't think so can go [...]

    4. Mari Biella on said:

      Say what you will about Stephen King, but you’ve got to hand it to our man in Maine: sitting down with one of his novels is never a struggle. Having read a number of his books, I’ve gradually come to think of him as being a bit like an old friend: a charming, chatty old friend who, for the price of a paperback, will happily sit down with you and tell you one of his numerous stories, stories whose occasional nastiness seems quite at odds with their mild-mannered narrator. On this level, Despe [...]

      Awesomesauce!!I closed the book with a wicked smile across my face.First, the boy character made this book.Second, the way this story makes you feel like you're right there. Third, how can you not love a 600+ page King novel. The bigger the better in my opinion. One of his best for sure.

      “Dolls with no little girls around to mind them were sort of creepy under any conditions.” TakAs a constant King reader, I was looking forward to diving into his twisted mindset again, for believe it or not this was my first King book this year and immediately from page one it felt like home. The whole setting for this book lends itself well to the extreme creepy factor from the ghost town in the middle of a desert to the long stretches of highway that just give this unsettling feeling lik [...]

    8. Lane Wilkinson on said:

      So, I dropped the pretention and read a Stephen King novel. True, I read several of King's works middle schoolbut I thought that it was time to give him another chance. After all, King's popularity is eclipsed only by, oh, I don't knowJesus? Well, not Jesusbut someone popular.I'll admit, the story was engaging. King has a way with propelling his story-lines over hundreds of pages without taking a breath. Or so it would seem. Unfortunately, the mediocrity of his prose is, at best, distracting and [...]

      "In these silences something may rise."What a book! What a ride! Tak!This is a story about the little mining town of Desperation. Regulating the traffic on the nearby Route 50 is Collie Entragian, who is an absolutely giant madman. If you're caught with a license plate number missing or you've got a flat tire.h luck. Collie brings passers-by into Desperation where the real nightmare begins.I loved this book from beginning to end, I was hooked from the very first page. It's an apocalyptic drama o [...]

    10. Jennifer Lynn Harrison on said:

      It has ups and downs and definitely could have trimmed at least 75 pages or so with better editing, I think, but a good read. Heavy on the religious aspects, for a King novel. After reading this one, though, I ALWAYS have to then immediately read 'The Regulators', which is the 'other side of the story' written by King's friend, 'Richard Bachman'--Jen from Quebec :0)

    11. Doreen Petersen on said:

      Although not one of my favorite Stephen King books I would still recommend it to all.

    12. Cody | codysbookshelf on said:

      Here we have it, folks: the biggest shock yet in the Stephen King reread. Before today, I considered Desperation bottom-of-the-barrel King. Desperate King. I felt the religiosity was blatant, tasteless; the story derivative of things King had done better before. Funny how our tastes evolve and change as we get older, isn’t it? My sole reading of this novel was in my sophomore year of high school — about six years’ worth of stuff has happened to me since then. What can I say, I was able to [...]

    13. TS Chan on said:

      This book together with its companion novel, The Regulators penned by Stephen King under his pseudonym Richard Bachmann, are probably two of the scariest books I've ever read.

    14. Edward Lorn on said:

      The first time I read Desperation, I read it back to back with The Regulators in the fall 1996. Had I been reviewing in my teenage years, I probably would have given this two stars, and The Regulators four stars. The latter is a fun book from beginning to end, while Desperation takes off like a crackhead escaping police custody only to run out of steam about halfway to the sanctuary of his crack den. Sad Panda. This read was a little bit better than the first because I was expecting the slow-as- [...]

    15. Jess ❈Harbinger of Blood-Soaked Rainbows❈ on said:

      IN THESE SILENCES SOMETHING MAY RISEOi, this book is a doozy! I read it months ago but only just finished its companion novel so I think I'm finally ready to organize my thoughts and write a review of this thing. I know I rated it three stars but that's really only in comparison to King's other work. Because compared with other writers, this book is far better, but compared to a lot of his other novels, it is just on the lower end of the Stephen King spectrum for me. Which really is too bad beca [...]

    16. Samuel Richards-hastings on said:

      UUUUUUUUUUGGGHHHH I FEEL SO BETRAYED BY THIS DUMB BOOK.The first half, maybe even two thirds and I was all HEY THIS MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE KING NOVEL. A creepy rural Nevada cop starts kidnapping innocent travelers!? Like all post-AA King, they're all thinly veiled representations of parts of his personality/personal history!? THE COP IS POSSESSED BY AN ANCIENT EARTH-GOD WITH POWER OVER THE LOWER BEASTS OF THE DESERT?@?!!? DUDE!There's a movie adaptation where RON PERLMAN PLAYS THE COP!? DOUBLE DUD [...]

    17. Becky on said:

      This is probably the 4th or 5th time that I've read this book. I have always liked this story, although not as much as it's other half, The Regulators, but I have to say that this time, unfortunately, Desperation lost a little something for me. I actually downgraded it from a 4 star to a 3 star rating (OK, 3 1/2 maybe). Maybe this is due to the fact that I'm on something of a King kick, and I've been reading a lot of his stuff within the past few months. I think, because of this, some of his les [...]

    18. Ruth Turner on said:

      Audiobook - Narrated by Stephen King - Surprisingly good narration. I say surprisingly good, because years ago I listened to something Stephen King read (can't remember what) and found his voice to be flat and emotionless. So I was severely disappointed when I downloaded this book and found it was narrated by the author. But, eventually, I decided to give it a try, and I have to say that I was surprised. He did an excellent job. It was like having him in my living room, an old friend come to vis [...]

    19. Todd Western-Normanton on said:

      Absolutely brilliant! I am usually a slow reader and expect to take a while to digest a book of great size (as this book is over 700 pages long), this book took me less than a week to read! The book was gripping at every sentence. The characters were formed to high standard and the chills, thrills, elements of horror and survival intensity were peaked beyond my maximum enjoyment! I loved King's use of the mad cop in the first few thirds of the book- the cops possession of the demonic entity know [...]

    20. Adam Light on said:

      Stood up well after nearly twenty years. Too tired to put together a long review, but I want to point I reread this one right behind my second trip through It, and was surprised at how many similarities the two share. It is a far superior book, of course. There was also a nice reference to those pesky tommyknockers, as well. On to The Regulators now.

    21. Thomas Strömquist on said:

      For almost 2/3 of this book, I was sure this review would start with "This book was better than I remembered", but then most went wrong. I do think this is the one I enjoyed least in my King reading project this far (except maybe for the short distance I made into the 'Tower', but that I expected and also maybe 'The Dark Half', which was a disappointment, but still a way better book than this bloated thing). The beginning is both suspenseful and promising and for a quite long while the reading i [...]

      3,5/5 αστεράκια.Παρόλο που και ως εξώφυλλο και ως υπόθεση το βιβλίο φαίνεται να είναι κάτι πολύ δυνατό,προσωπικά δεν το ένιωσα και τόσο πολύ. Το διάβασα αμέσως μετά από τους "Ρυθμιστές",που κυκλοφόρησε ο King την ίδια χρονιά με το ψευδώνυμο του Backman,και επέλεξε να δώσει στους ήρωε [...]

    23. Alissa on said:

      Overall I enjoyed Desperation and I'm still planning on reading The Regulators. Religion was more of a theme with this book than the somewhat subtle undertones King usually uses but it didn't detract much for me. I'm not religious either, its just something I can accept if its used seriously as part of the story. It felt like King relied on it more sometimes than he could have though. It comes full circle through the characters and while King managed to create characters with human flaws, desire [...]

    24. Steve on said:

      Just can't get into this one, nothing really compelling me to keep reading. Into the abandoned book pile it goes.

    25. Asghar Abbas on said:

      Nope. King's work have always been a hit and miss for me. This one is definitely a miss.

    26. Patricio on said:

      «In these silences something may rise.»Honestly, Desperation took me aback in many ways. This book is different from everything else I have read by Stephen King so far because it is really focused on religion and beliefs, but some of the characters are not that compelling.The giant cop Collie Entragian regulates the traffic on Route 50, and those who don't obey the law are taken to Desperation, where strange things have happened. In that place, an ancient evil force resides, and is getting str [...]

      Ovdje sam počinio grijeh i pogledao sam film prvo. Ali to je bilo davno, prije nekih 10 ? godina. Kod filma se samo sjećam da mi se mnogo dopao. Što se priče gotovo sam sve zaboravio, što je izgleda i dobro u neku ruku.Meni je priča stvarno prijala, poželio sam horor, tražio sam horor i dobio sam horor sa ovom pričom. I ja sam osoba kojoj smeta jedan deus ex machina pred kraj priče, jer to mi pokazuje da pisac nije imao pojma kako da završi priču i tu onda malo vara. Kod ove knjige s [...]

    28. Jeremy Bates on said:

      One thing I find fascinating is how many critics write off Stephen King as a hack because he writes horror novels. Unlike literary authors, who write about extraordinary people in regular situations, King writes about regular people in extraordinary situations, and that’s just fine with me.Desperation is reminiscent of King’s magnum opus The Stand, and King revisits many familiar themes such as good versus evil, salvation, redemption, faith, so forth. There’s also a lot of blood and gore, [...]

      Lunga e diritta correva la strada…La Highway 50 nel tratto che attraversa il deserto del Nevada è chiamata “la strada più desolata d’America”. Proprio lì, su quella strada, in una torrida estate stanno transitando i Jackson (una coppia diretta a New York in macchina), i Carver (una famigliola per una vacanza in camper al Lago Tahoe) e Johnny Marinville (in sella a una scintillante Harley-Davidson, diretto… oltre la prossima collina). I malcapitati vengono fermati, con i pretesti pi [...]

    30. Mary on said:

      It's pretty much guaranteed that if Stephen King wrote it, I'll like it. I can't honestly say that this is one of his best books. It's certainly very menacing, and extremely tense, but it was also kind of predictable and the ending seemed a bit too easy. A lot of King endings are vaguely unsatisfying, though, and I blame that primarily on the fact that he builds up the story so much that there's really no way to end it on a satisfying note.Still, something about Desperation got to me. It played [...]
