Desperation by Stephen King Book Summary

“The terror is relentless” (Publishers Weekly) in Stephen King’s #1 national bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem…

Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to “rescuing” a family from a nonexistent gunman. There’s something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it.

The secrets embedded in Desperation’s landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as one of the travelers, young David Carver, seems to know—though it scares him nearly to death to realize it—so are the forces summoned to combat them. “Stephen King’s knack for turning the stray junk of pop culture into sick, darkly engrossing thrills has rarely been this much in evidence as in Desperation” (Salon).

A desperate fight for survival!I’ve read other books I liked by the author that were originally published during the same decade, but this book is easily Stephen King’s most terrifying horror novel, out of all of those that were published during the 90s! The gory, bone-chilling story of travelers who find themselves stranded in the small mining town of Desperation, Nevada, fighting for their lives against a hideously powerful demonic force, literally relying on God to help them survive—and defeat—this unimaginable horror, is emotionally powerful, suspenseful, and relentlessly terrifying! I love Mick Garris’ 2005 TV movie adaptation, written by King himself!.Score: 5/5
