انتشارات قطره منتشر کرد: زمانی كه جان اسمیت از كالج فارغ‌التحصیل شد، دیگر خیلی وقت بود كه خاطره روی یخ افتادن ژانویه سال 1953 را فراموش كرده بود. حتی چند سال پیش از آن، یعنی وقتی كه دبیرستان را تمام كرده بود، به سختی یادش می‌آمد كه در آن اتفاق چه بلایی سرش آمده است. پدر و مادرش هم كه اصلا از جریان خبر نداشتند

معرفی کتاب منطقه مرده از نگاه کاربران
THE DEAD ZONE was my very first Stephen King book, and I would like to thank David Cronenberg, Christopher Walken, and one of my high school best friends- Natalie Kowalski- for introducing me to the world of John Smith, and in turn the world of Stephen King.

After watching and falling for the character John Smith- in the 1983 movie THE DEAD ZONE, I decided to search out the book that it was based on. I had never heard of Stephen King- I had read a lot of mysteries, but had never read a horror novel. To me this was the perfect start into the genre. It is suspenseful and gripping without being gory.

Johnny Smith- is a well liked small-town schoolteacher. After dropping off his first love -Sarah- at her house , he gets into a horrible car accident, which puts him into a coma for five...long...years. When he finally wakes up, everything has changed. Sarah has moved on, his mother is even mooooooore unstable, his father is having a hard time coping with his marriage and hospital bills, and a man called Greg Stillson has entered into the world of politics. Something else is different too- while John has always had an uncanny ability to find lost things or predict small future events, now this @[email protected] has turned into something much more powerful.

This will always be one of my favorite Stephen King novels- partly because it was my first, and also because of John Smith and his story- he is certainly a character I have never wanted to let go of. This is my second reading of the book, I watch the movie at least once a year, and I also loved the cheesy -TV USA Network starring Anthony Michael Hall- version of it as well.

Este es justamente el Stephen King que no me gusta...

Quienes me conocen saben que soy fan de este autor, muchos de sus libros son increíbles, lamentablemente este no es el caso. Sólo déjenme explicarles un poco de mi problema con este en particular.

Para empezar leemos bien claro en la sinopsis que se trata de un tipo que comienza a tener unas especies de visiones acerca del futuro luego de salir de un coma y que pronto descubre que debe asesinar a alguien que provocará una especie de fin de mundo.

Stephen king quiso hacer de esta historia una especie de crónica, profundizando en los detalles para mi superfluos de la historia, quiero decir, cae en el coma en un tercio del libro, su primera vision fue mas adelante de la mitad y cuando comienza la acción para matar al señor que va a destruir el mundo es en las ultimas 100 páginas... Es decir tío ¿¡en serio!?

Sí caí en leer este libro es precisamente por lo emocionante que sonaba esa sinopsis, siendo SK uno espera que vaya a por ello y nos brinde una de sus historias crudas y desgarradoras. Pero no es este el caso.

Además los bajones y subidones de esta historia son francamente aburridos, justo cuando comienza a ponerse bueno hay una interrupción que te corta toda la diversión.

Lo siento, no disfrute mucho leyendo esto. Creo que esta faceta de un king que explora las consecuencias sociales de algún evento no es de mis preferidos. Algo similar me ocurrió con 22/11/63.

2/5 por ser una historia con un potencial increíble que no llegó a ser mucho.

Συγκλονιστικό βιβλίο. Ο Τζόνι Σμιθ ξυπνά από ένα βαθύ κώμα που κράτησε τέσσερα και κάτι έτη, έχοντας αποκτήσει τη δύναμη να βλέπει το μέλλον.
Από τα καλύτερα του King. Ά... και απίστευτα μελαγχολικό (χωρίς να είμαι σίγουρος καθώς τελευταία συγκινούμαι και με κατάλογο από τα πράκτικερ).

Next up on my Stephen King quest is The Dead Zone, again it’s not a review as such but a collection of my thoughts on the book. So there may well be spoilers but I think pretty much everyone has read it a long time ago anyway, all except me.

After reading The Stand & Salem’s Lot in quick succession, you start to appreciate what a spellbinding storyteller The King can be and I can compare these to the other end of the spectrum, his newly released material, Mr Mercedes & Doctor Sleep. The outstanding feature in his new material is the depth he gives to his characters, a depth that was touched on but not prevalent at the start of his career. His new stuff wraps the art of storytelling neatly into a bundle, with gripping characterization and plots that leave you hanging on for more.

The Dead Zone sort of explores Stephen King’s development as a skilled author, in this book he shows that his characters are becoming more deeply fleshed out than previous works but in my opinion he loses his way with the story a little, concentrating more on one aspect of the story and dropping the ball in others.

I did enjoy the story of Jonny Smith, he is a character that is easy to invest everything in but my problem lay with the bad guys. They simply weren’t in the story enough to get any feel for, There was a chapter about the killer early on and then nothing more until he was identified, which was a little too easy, there should have been more airtime devoted to the killer to ramp up the tension, no reveal but more focus around his acts themselves.

Then we have Greg Stillson who for me just wasn’t a worthy bad guy for the end play, truthfully I couldn’t give a flying fuck what happened to him and Jonny’s mission to kill the guy seemed almost meaningless to me. I appreciate he saw him becoming President and heralding a nuclear war but I was more taken in by Jonny and his teaching successes with Chuck, the lightning strike and his relationship with Sarah than I was with how the book ended.

I know this book is well thought of by most, even a favourite but for me it was a case of the writer honing his considerable talents for future forays, primarily a character driven story that sacrificed plot devices that when I think back could have been made a classic so easily by simply veering slightly off the path he set for himself.

Anyway that’s just my opinion and I guess most wouldn’t wholeheartedly agree with it but it’s my Stephen King trip and that’s how I see it.

So that’s 16 completed from my target of 66 books and a nice round 50 to go, a fair undertaking I think you’ll agree.

Oscura, fascinante y enigmática. Conocía esta historia por su serie pero me ha sorprendido bastante. Con aire irreverente King en estado puro y con un final de infarto.
