Civilization doesn't end with a bang or a whimper. It ends with a call on your cell phone. What happens on the afternoon of October 1 came to be known as the Pulse, a signal sent though every operating cell phone that turns its user into something...well, something less than human. Savage, murderous, unthinking-and on a wanton rampage. Terrorist act? Cyber prank gone haywire? It really doesn't matter, not to the people who avoided the technological attack. What matters to them is surviving the aftermath. Before long a band of them-"normies" is how they think of themselves-have gathered on the grounds of Gaiten Academy, where the headmaster and one remaining student have something awesome and terrifying to show them on the school's moonlit soccer field. Clearly there can be no escape. The only option is to take them on.

Another King winner!
This novel is a spell binding S King story. I couldn't put it down. Lots of food for thought on what if this happens. Loved it.

I knew there was a reason I don't like cell phones. And, this just confirms it. I really liked this book. A great read. One of King's best!

Can You Hear Me Now? ? Never Sounded so Scary!!
Great story ? funny in bits, cared about the characters. I loved the descriptions of Boston, New Hampshire, of course, Maine. Not ?throw the book down? scary, but there was enough blood and gore to keep it very interesting.
This was a departure for me, as I usually stick to ?chick lit?, but I?ve always enjoyed the occasional King thriller and this one didn?t let me down ? I loved the focus on what today is thought of as a ?regular? part of our lives, but in fact, this book makes you look at cellular technology as being mysterious and it seemed plausible that there could be something scary going on and King found a way to bring the message home.

was scared to use my cell
I really enjoyed this shorter novel by king, I loved the beginning, the storyline was good, slower, but good, and I liked the end. It isnt' a traditional zombie story or end of the world story. Its a fast and easy read.
