Read an Excerpt from Stephen King's Cell


Entertainment Weekly has scored an exclusive excerpt (which consists of the first two chapters) of Stephen King's new thriller - CELL.

I've read it and I have to say that I haven't been a fan of Stephen Kings work for a long time now - but I believe he has an old fan back again.  Click on the image to read the first two chapters of CELL - and get ready for one wild, bloody ride. 

"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.

CELL is classic Stephen King, a story of gory horror and white-knuckling suspense that makes the unimaginable entirely plausible and totally fascinating."
