Review: Revival

Revival by Stephen King
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not one of his best books, I gave up on this and came back to it a month later.
So what’s wrong with the book? Whilst the story telling is up to his usual standard, the story being told is not. It lacks pace and the characters don’t grab you and hold your interest like a regular King book. The plot is slow to develop and consequently the story takes place over the lifetime of the characters involved. The ending is when King chooses to pull the threads together and is adequate but not one of his best.
There are a few chapters where you want to read on and find out what happens next but these are few and far between. I have to say I’m disappointed by this book, it contains the smallest of ideas stretched out to fill a whole book and King is capable of much more…
