Civilization doesn't end with a bang or a whimper. It ends with a call on your cell phone. What happens on the afternoon of October 1 came to be known as the Pulse, a signal sent though every operating cell phone that turns its user into something...well, something less than human. Savage, murderous, unthinking-and on a wanton rampage. Terrorist act? Cyber prank gone haywire? It really doesn't matter, not to the people who avoided the technological attack. What matters to them is surviving the aftermath. Before long a band of them-"normies" is how they think of themselves-have gathered on the grounds of Gaiten Academy, where the headmaster and one remaining student have something awesome and terrifying to show them on the school's moonlit soccer field. Clearly there can be no escape. The only option is to take them on.… (més)

Two stars for imagination only....horrible story of a mutation to the population through cell phone connection and one man's effort to find his son. Lots of blood and gore, not the good suspense of the early Stephen King novels, where plausibility is an option. ( )

Not King's best work. The characters are rather cardboard in spite of verbose descriptions. The whole tale moves slowly and the climax leaves the outcome unresolved. I actually found that I had to force myself to finish this book.

What happens when the world can no longer use cell phones because everyone who was using a cell phone got turned into a feral, homicidal killing machine? Well, things go to hell in a handbasket, basically. This is easily one of King's best books in recent memory--not overblown, not too long, not too heavily cliched, and creepy as hell at points.

What was really fascinating to me was his picture of American society crumbling into chaos--it's so heavily influenced by 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. It's so of the moment, I could see it being looked at twenty years from now as an illustration of the American Psyche, circa 2007. ( )

Stephen King was my favourite author as a teenager and he's been the biggest influence on my own writing because of that. I've not read anything new of his in a long, long time, though. I stopped around the time where he stopped writing brilliant horror and started writing not-so-horror. And then I kind of never got started again. I'm trying to write horror at the moment, and feeling nostalgic about It and other King novels due to the content of what I'm trying to write, so when I saw this in the library I picked it up.

You know, I hadn't realised how much I'd missed King until I started reading him again.

This is good solid post-apocalyptic fare. I do love apocalyptic horror, so I was never really going to hate this. The beginning actually reminded me of Laymon a lot, so I spent a while expecting the teenage girl to get raped, because she probably would've if Laymon had written this. As it went on, it became more reminiscent of The Stand, which is one of my favourite King books.

The best thing about this, though, is that it has an excellent gay character in it. I shouldn't have to be so excited to find that in this genre, but let's face it. We all know what the genre's like. The greatest thing about it, is that Tom's sexuality is just there. And that's how it should be. There are a couple of hints, it's mentioned outright at one point, and that's it. And guess what? He doesn't even die! I know, right? ( )

If you have ever worried that using mobile phones might scramble your brain, Stephen King suggests you may just be right. It all happens at 3.02pm one afternoon, when everyone in the world using a cellphone suddenly becomes a violent maniac.

Stephen King is supposed to have retired. A year ago, he published the final part of his seven-book Dark Tower saga with the book of the same name - a novel so crushingly disappointing that, reluctantly, all but King's most ardent fans were forced to agree with the author himself that it was probably time for him to stop and enjoy the royalties from his 40 or so bestsellers.
 
Cell is Stephen King's first full-length novel since his threatened retirement in 2003. Of course, this most prolific of authors has not been idle during this period, penning a collaborative non-fiction book about baseball, a regular column for the popular US magazine Entertainment Weekly, several short stories, and even a short (and slightly puzzling) noir novel, The Colorado Kid, for small publisher Hard Case Crime. This is the first of two new novels to be published this year, with Lisey's Story to follow in October.

This is the way the world ends... not with a bang, but a whimper.
— T. S. Elliot


Actually, it ends with a "pulse" -- an errant cell phone signal that wipes away the user's humanity, 'rebooting' their brain back to something basic... primordial... and evil. Even those within earshot of the gray matter draining signal suffer a kind of evolutionary epilepsy, reverting to a state of pure impulse and mental confusion. As the feeling consumes its host, madness takes over, and there is only one way to satisfy this cruel craving. The insanity must be met with violence, quelling the instinctual bloodlust that lay dormant inside every person's DNA. Thus the world ends, and it's the very people who protected and prospered upon it who are now intent on taking it down.

If the stretch of years between Sept. 11 and last fall's Kashmir earthquake has reminded us of anything, it's that history can take a drastic turn in one day. Stephen King jumps into the middle of one such day on the opening pages of Cell, his first full-length novel since he came off what has to be the shortest-ever retirement not involving professional boxing. Happily wandering Boston after selling a comic-book pitch, artist Clay Riddell watches as the world goes mad when a mind-wiping electronic pulse turns everyone using a cell phone into a violent zombie.

The id will not stand for a delay in gratification. It always feels the tension of the unfulfilled urge. - Sigmund Freud
Human aggression is instinctual. Humans have not evolved any ritualized aggression-inhibiting mechanisms to ensure the survival of the species. For this reason man is considered a very dangerous animal. - Konrad Lorenz
Can you hear me now? - Verizon
