Book Overview

In this #1 national bestseller, “master storyteller” (Houston Chronicle) Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, tells the tale of the contestants of a grueling walking competition where there can only be one winner—the one that survives.

In the near future, when America has become a police state, one hundred boys are selected to enter an annual contest where the winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life. Among them is sixteen-year-old Ray Garraty, and he knows the rules—keep a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Three warnings and you’re out—permanently.

A “psychologically dark tale with commentary on society, teenage life, and cultural entertainment, The Long Walk is still poignant decades after its original publication” (Publishers Weekly). This edition features an introduction by Stephen King on “The Importance of Being Bachman.”

    I had to review this book, as I've never read such a novel that would slip into my mind during the day, as if it were a true and ongoing situation. I'd wonder during my day, where the boys (the walkers) were 'by now' and how they're doing as they walk and aren't allowed to stop. I'd find myself actually thinking about these fictional characters - all walking until only one boy is left - the winner! The only one left alive. We get to know these boys extremely well, via Stephen King's incredible writing. Good horror!

    Just finished 30 seconds ago. Such a heartfelt, raw and believable book about teenage boy friendship, determination and love. One of my favorite King books, up there with The Body.
