  1. Ooh, I loved this story. It was so disurbing. I think I was 17 when I read it and I felt so down – the deaths, the march, that kid with a charley horse! The cheering ‘fans’. Gave me goosebumps but still a good book to read!

  2. This novel is my favorite blood-sport story, hands down. It is so simple and raw. It is pure story boiled down to the bare essentials.

  3. I haven’t read this particular Stephen King title, but I’ve thouroughly enjoyed the titles which I have read. I’ll definitely give this title a try before a real opinion could be made.

  4. I love Stephen King, and while this doesn’t seem like his “normal” type of book, it definitely piked my interest since it was different. He is a little long winded for my taste, as I find that I skip a lot of the overly descriptive stuff. I am definitely going to add this to my pile, though I don’t know how much of it i’ll actually read, and how much I”ll skip through to get to the “good” parts. Thank you for this review.

    1. I’m not a fan of overly descriptive stuff, either. There’s not a ton of it in this book, and what there is definitely adds to the story’s feel.
