I’d say The Running Man veers slightly away from the typical King novel. Is it an excellent waste of time? This was a pretty good story, but quite different from what I’d expected.

Livro de Julho de The book can be scary for people who have paranoia or anxiety thinking they are being watched. Schwarzenegger uses some wit and the muscles to survive the death match game show that is The Running Man.

Dec 01, Stepheny rated it really liked it Shelves: In terms of the bacman itself, it was a fun, quick read. But The Running Man is fast paced right from the beginning. Ben Richards, an impoverished resident of the fictional Co-Op City, is unable to find work, having been blacklisted from his trade. I wanted to like this book, I really did, I even convinced myself on a few occasions that I was actually enjoying it.

As an action book this is superb, but bwchman me to enjoy a book there has to be more than this. The film starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as Richards. He and his wife finally succeed in conceiving, but there’s still no work to be had, so they have no food, no medicine, barely a place to live, thanks to Ben’s wife who prostitutes herself out to try to make ends meet.


While reading, I felt like I was watching down from a cloud above, hovering slightly above the action the entire way.

I thought it was a good ending. I’ve never seen the movie – and looking at IMDB right now, that’s probably a good thing – so I didn’t even have those misconceptions to deal with. Really, you could just read the first few chapters and then skim til the end, but even then it’d still be a four star book. Fast-paced action pack book that will keep you on adrenaline.

Books by Richard Bachman. THEY won’t stop thinking that the contestant is a criminal just because they were smart and wily enough to evade the hunters for a month Acredito que a escrita tenha sido o meu ponto fraco nesse livro.

King makes a concerted effort to focus on economic and racial disparity, but it really smacks of some desperation. King wrote the foreword to this book, talking about how Bachman is different from King and why King let Bachman die, which is quite fascinating, but King also revealed a major spoiler for the book right there, so I would advise you to skip the foreword and read the book straightaway.

The Running Man

At one point, Ben Richards crosses through Derry, Maine! For the film, see The Running Man film. The novel is dark, harsh and fast.

Wasn’t my favorite King or Bachman adventure, perhaps because Halt! It’s pretty much him against the world and nobody has ever won this game. You are rooting for him, but he’s not likable. It’s the storyI think, that gets the spotlight this time around. Those people who’ve ricjard lied to and manipulated and think that the contestant really is as bad as they’ve been told? Such a storyline could only come from the twisted mind of Stephen King!
