Description
The next call you take could be your last in this terrifying #1 New York Times bestseller by Stephen King—now a major motion picture starring Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack.
"If any of them looks over here, sees us, and decides to come after us, we're done. We won't have a hope in hell."

On October 1, God is in His heaven, the stock market stands at 10,140, most of the planes are on time, and graphic artist Clayton Riddell is visiting Boston, having just landed a deal that might finally enable him to make art instead of teaching it. But all those good feelings about the future change in a hurry thanks to a devastating phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse. The delivery method is a cell phone—everyone's cell phone. Now Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a relentless human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve. There's really no escaping this nightmare. But for Clay, an arrow points the way home to his family in Maine, and as he and his fellow refugees make their harrowing journey north, they begin to see the crude signs confirming their direction. A promise of a safe haven, perhaps, or quite possibly the deadliest trap of all....

      • content: Campbell Scott's measured pace leads the listener through this updating of King's 1978 bestseller, THE STAND, with the earlier novel's apocalyptic super-flu replaced by a cell phone pulse that renders anyone with Motorola to the ear a vicious zombie with indiscriminate eating habits. As a band of ragtag survivors staggers north from Boston to Maine, Scott does a smooth, subtle job with the challenging Yankee accent in all its urban and rural permutations. Poorly adjusted editing does pitch Scott's voice eerily deep at times, but the story is entertaining overall. And if you're a cell phone user, you're guaranteed to hesitate the next time you prepare to punch "Send." A.M.D. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine

shortDescription
From international bestseller Stephen King, a high-concept, ingenious and terrifying story about the mayhem unleashed when a pulse from a mysterious source transforms all cell phone users into homicidal maniacs.
There’s a reason cell rhymes with hell.

On October 1, God is in His heaven, the stock market stands at 10,140, most of the planes are on time, and Clayton Riddell, an artist from Maine, is almost bouncing up Boylston Street in Boston. He’s just landed a comic book deal that might finally enable him to support his family by making art instead of teaching it. He’s already picked up a small (but expensive!) gift for his long-suffering wife, and he knows just what he’ll get for his boy Johnny. Why not a little treat for himself? Clay’s feeling good about the future.

That changes in a hurry. The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone....
