Billy Summers by Stephen King Book Summary

#1 New York Times Bestseller

From legendary storyteller Stephen King, whose “restless imagination is a power that cannot be contained” (The New York Times Book Review), comes a thrilling new novel about a good guy in a bad job.

Billy Summers is a man in a room with a gun. He’s a killer for hire and the best in the business. But he’ll do the job only if the target is a truly bad guy. And now Billy wants out. But first there is one last hit. Billy is among the best snipers in the world, a decorated Iraq war vet, a Houdini when it comes to vanishing after the job is done. So what could possibly go wrong?

How about everything.

This spectacular can’t-put-it-down novel is part war story, part love letter to small town America and the people who live there, and it features one of the most compelling and surprising duos in King fiction, who set out to avenge the crimes of an extraordinarily evil man. It’s about love, luck, fate, and a complex hero with one last shot at redemption.

You won’t put this story down, and you won’t forget Billy.

Billy Summers (Stephen King) Book Reviews

Still all KINGLike an old friend putting a hand on your shoulder, Mr. King glides you into his world. A refreshing change, but not so much as to lose all that we love him best for. Good believable characters, with well rounded emotions and convincing personalities. Different from his usual but still enjoyable..Score: 4/5

One of his best…Terrific! Another King book that I could not put down..Score: 5/5

Billy SummersOne of “maybe” the five greatest novelists of our time, Stephen King rarely disappoints. Billy Summers is no exception. From rock hard foundational facts, to “I know him or her” personalities and on to a Grand Prix of twists and turns, this story captivates. A humorous reference in the context of the story, works for those of us who first discovered Mr. King with The Stand and stayed the course. It reminds me of the cameos Hitchcock slipped into his films. Making bad guys seem good is also a special talent. This would be an enjoyable read for most of America, especially those who shy away from horror. It is a stand alone story with a memorable character, written for a world where only God is left to distinguish between good and bad people. It’s fun and thoughtful, which is what reading is all about. John C. Calkins.Score: 5/5

10 StarsStephen King still has it after all these years..Score: 5/5

Not the average KingAs always, King is a storyteller who can paint very well developed characters. However, I found this slow, dry, and tedious to plod through. Three stars because no one can argue that his writing isn’t phenomenal, but in terms of thrills, horror, or being a page turner, I’d give it 2 stars..Score: 3/5

Stephen KingAnother well written book by one of my favorite authors of all time. However, it’s an absolute shame that he’s turned into just another prima dona celebrity trying to force down ordinary folks throat what amounts to Left wing liberal garbage. My advice as a humble fan is to leave that drivel where it belongs, in his head or where it really belongs ….in the toilet..Score: 3/5

?Where is the remainder of the book?.Score: 5/5

A Wonderful SurpriseI’ve been a Stephen King fan for a long long time. I adore the way he writes horror, but I’m also aware of his knack for non-horror books that absolutely captivate your heart and mind. I would place this creation on the same level as The Green Mile and Dolores Claiborne - I didn’t know what to expect from this title when I came in. I quickly knew it wouldn’t be horror and yet again, I was blown away by this man’s writing skills. If you haven’t read this book yet please do. You won’t be disappointed..Score: 5/5

BestI thought this one of King’s best, along with “Mrs. Todd’s Short Cut”..Score: 5/5

One of his best.Wow! What a great book. It draws you in in every way possible..Score: 5/5

Shades of Gray, Good vs BadThis great novel perfectly illustrates the notion that the way of the world is never a black and white proposition. It is lived in a landscape colored with countless shades of grey. Always changing in time..Score: 5/5

Engaging story…I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The writing made me care about the people portrayed, the story was most enjoyable, and the pace was perfect. It was the kind of book that could be read in one sitting, but I spread it out over a week because it was so delicious that I didn’t want to gorge myself on it. Little bits were best..Score: 5/5

Great readI enjoyed this book more than the past dozen or so that I have read. First class Mr King, first class..Score: 5/5

Billy SummersBilly Summers is a a very complex character (Kings trademark). A good guy with a lot of bad breaks finds his good side a bit late in a Good Samaritan act of kindness that changes the course of his life and many others. So we’ll written and in-depth detailed. Highly recommended..Score: 5/5

Great bookI might have to edit my personal top five favorite Stephen King novels to make room for Billy. It is certainly, in my opinion, his best crime novel. Read it and enjoy the ride..Score: 5/5

Woke garbageToo much anti-orange man nonsense that adds nothing to the story. Stephen King has devolved to a greedy over-opinionated jerk who is cashing check off his name. The Stephen King that wrote about compelling characters as well as enthralling story lines is dead..Score: 1/5

Stephen King may have missed his calling.This book was one of my very favorites of Stephen King, and I’ve read them all. This is subtle, bottled up horror, but not creatures or demons…. This is an expert tale that has elements of many genres and crime/thrillers also being one of my favorites this will be hard to top. Hated to finish it..Score: 5/5

How?How is this possible? It seems that Stephen King is only getting better. Wow…and thank you sir..Score: 5/5

Loved it.I don’t write many reviews but, here it goes. As well as King does monsters, I like when he writes about people best. Under the Dome, even though there were elements of the supernatural, had tons of characters, tons of relationships and explored people’s motives. I think King does that well. This book felt a little like 11/22/63 and I loved that one as well. It’ll keep you guessing..Score: 5/5

Billy SummersLike sitting down with an old friend, Stephen King’s master storytellling allows you to settle in and enjoy the ride he will take you on. So good you’re sorry it’s over. Billy Summers is a wonderful read..Score: 5/5

One Small Weakness But Overall SuperbThis is an excellent story, skillfully told. The narrative is layered, clever, intelligent, with many twists and turns. My only (small) criticism is that while the book’s major themes are laid out carefully, toward its end the disclosure of the prime villain, his motivations, and cohorts, is done in a rushed “…and another thing is this…” type of manner. But apart from this, the book is one of King’s best, in my opinion..Score: 5/5

Not to be missed…This is Stephen King at his very best. I have enjoyed most of this works, but this one touch me in so many, many ways. Don’t miss the fantastical life of Billy Summer..Score: 5/5
