Cell by Stephen King

Cell is Stephen King’s homage to zombie flicks.  He dedicated the book to George Romero.  This was very fast-paced and grabbed my interest from the first page.  As any King fan will tell you, he has a very readable writing style and kept me interested until the end.  I was a little disappointed with one thing he leaves up for interpretation at the end.

Basically, there is a pulse, and then everyone who answers their cell phone turns into a zombie.  The book is mainly focused on Clay, Tom, and Alice, strangers who meet each other and decide to stick together for survival.  There are plenty of twists to keep you interested to the end.

This was our book club selectin for July, which I thought was funny.  I’ve never read a horror book for a book club, but I think this one does present a lot of material for discussion, especially since he leaves some big storylines unresolved.
