The Friday 56 and Book Beginnings #11

The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader.  Visit their links to learn more.
Title:  Revival
Author:  Stephen King
The Beginning:  In one way, at least, our lives really are like movies.  The main cast consists of your family and friends.  The supporting cast is made up of neighbors, co-workers, teachers, and daily acquaintances.  There are also bit players:  the supermarket checkout girl with the pretty smile, the friendly bartender at the local watering hole, the guys you work out with at the gym three days a week.  And there are thousands of extras -- those people who flow through every life like water through a sieve, seen once and never again.

The Friday 56:  "You don't know.  You don't understand.  It was terrible because it was no one's fault.  Certainly not George Barton's.  He simply had a seizure."

Comment:  I have no idea yet where this novel is headed, but it's been impossible to put down so far!


  1. I really like the beginning! I need to get into some Stephen King novels I might start with this since you can't out it down. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I'm not surprised to hear that you are finding it difficult to put the book down, it's Stephen King! Gah! I hope you end up enjoying it :)

  4. Stephen King and I do not get along. :)

    Too scary for me.
