    Default Elevation-New Stephen King Book October 2018

    Elevation. King's second book due in October 30th, 2018, announced on stephenking.com


    "The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

    Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

    In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade—but escalating—battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face – including his own -- he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.

    From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”"

    Elevation By Stephen King. Release Date: October 30th, 2018

    Elevation: A novella that’s longer than Gwendy’s Button Box and also about Castle Rock, in some ways, it’s almost like a sequel to Gwendy’s Button Box.

    Honestly the description doesn't sound too appealing to me. But I'll read it anyway.

    I've contacted them just after the announcement. My contact didn't know yet, so I guess the sale didnt go through yet, but surely they will confirm and announce it very shortly.

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    If you requested a Purple WHSMith copy from me last time, please confirm (by PM) you would like one of these. Note: Due to the length of the list I already have, I'm not currently looking to add to it...

    I also got to read Elevation and it is one of King’s best stories in sometime. Very moving.

    Just finished it. I hated it. It will go down as bottom three for me. Along with Liseys Story and Regulators. The whole book is nothing but SK forcing his political commentary down your throat, with poorly drawn, cookie-cutter cliche characters in a Matheson ripoff.

    I hope you do. Not for me, but I certainly don’t begrudge others their opinion. I’ve read almost every SK book, and though I’ve liked most of them, I certainly haven’t liked them all.

    My dislike of the story has nothing to do with his political point of view, and more with the fact that their is literally no meat to the story beyond that. Sleeping Beaties was heavy handed on the politics, but I enjoyed it because it was a good story. I just don’t think this one has any story, and what there is is poorly executed. Sorry for the multiple posts. Sometimes it takes me a couple tries to get my thoughts together.
