yo dirt i was gonna get the bachman books but i wasn't sure so it it worth it...can you just help me with a little review on the stories....i didn't like fire starter cos the book started of very good and just ended as if it was rushed.
Yeah, the Bachman books were madness. Each one is about 150+ pages long. I read all four in about a week, couldn't put that shit down. It's well worth it. "Rage" is about a kid taking over his classroom with a 9mm and goes onto expose all the kids in the class as all having weaknesses. King actually got questioned by the FBI cause he wrote it when he was 17. It's a mindblowing story. The second one is "The Long Walk", and very well written as well. Basically, a bunch of people have to walk at least 4+ mph until only one survives. You are given rations and thats it, you can't stop or...some of the ways the people die along the walk are crazy. You should buy it for these two alone. "Roadwork" and "Running Man" are good as well, the first about a man who won't let the state build a new highway because it will run right through his house, a lot more interesting than you could imagine...and the second about a game show that executes contestants on live TV
, a movie was made with Shwarzenegger about it, but the book is better. Definitely peep 'em.
