#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together--a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences. Although Scott Carey doesn't look any different, he's been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn't want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis. In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King's most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade--but escalating--battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott's lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face-including his own--he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott's affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others. From Stephen King, our "most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work" (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as "It's a Wonderful Life."… (més)

A feel good Stephen King book. Scott keeps losing weight, without a reason for it. He meets some new friends along the way with some folks who were not a fan of his nor the town in general. It’s a quick read but a nice story that keeps you intrigued. ( )

Really not much to these stories. King injects his social commentary into it but the "ostracizing" is nothing compared to what King does on Twitter, and really, it had nothing to do with the story. Lorie just went nowhere. Must have been a couple of stories laying around he thought he could make a few bucks off. ( )

King Confronts His Mortality

If you are expecting some of Stephen King’s macabre thrills from this Halloween release, you’re going to be disappointed. The two short stories in this book, “Elevation” and “Laurie” are not at all what we’ve come to expect from this author. Stephen King has always had trouble with endings. Without a doubt he is one of the elite story-tellers our time. He can often enthrall us on the first page and keep us riveted through very long and twisted plots. However, he has most often resorted to fantastical sequences that surpass most readers abilities to suspend disbelief in ending his tales. Now it appears, he may be engaging is similar fantasies as he approaches his own life’s denouement.
Reading “Elevation” is a lot like watching your favorite professional athlete’s attempt to prolong his competitive career long after its zenith, and past even the point where the cleats should have been hung up. As you watch, you remember the performances of the past but are keenly aware that they are gone forever. In this book SK has put together the prose style we have come to love, an over abundance of sentimentalism, a smattering of paternalism, and another fantastical magic ending.
The second and shorter story contained in this book, “Laurie,” will probably be a great hit with the dog lovers among us. But, as one who grew up in Florida all I have to say is, it’s never a good idea to walk your dog along the banks of waterways that may be home to alligators.

Quand Scott Carey frappa à sa porte, Bob Ellis (que tout Highland Acres appelait encore docteur Bob, bien qu'il fût à la retraite depuis cinq ans) le fit entrer dans l'appartement.
