♥   desperation by stephen king


This book was really interesting. The plot and the characters woven together in an out of the way town in a barren state... Nevada :)

I fall in love with Stephen King's characters every time I open a book, and this was no exception. The main character, a young boy, touched by God, devoted in prayer, but in a bare, innocent, "what's it to ya" way. He wasn't a typical bible thumper, he knew the bible, he knew God, he knew it in fact and he believed it plain and simple. He was able to weave this into all the others and together they became unkown heroes.

They just believed. That was the power to this story. The way these strangers drew together, bound by the light of one boy, in a desperate situation, trying to get out.

And you love the characters, you always end up loving them.
