The Dead Zone

The Dead Zone

By Stephen King

Reviewed by Alan Nguyen, BCCHS student

John Smith—nice guy, teacher at Cleaves Mill High School—has a great girlfriend. Life is good for Johnny, but when he is one of the victims of a car accident, he is in a coma for four and a half years. When he finally wakes up from the coma, he realizes he has a gift, a gift to look into the dead zone gift, a realm that holds the fate of everyone who comes in contact with him. When people don’t believe his predictions, they pay the ultimate price.

Great, suspenseful, unpredictable, mind-blowing, one of the most dramatic books Stephen King has ever written.  Not as scary as his other books, but a great suspense novel.

“Suddenly, terribly, Johnny Smith’s voice began to climb and change. It became the unsure and cracked voices of an adolescent…‘Remember me Terry,’ the adolescent voice begged. ‘Stay clean, Terry….please, for God’s sake stay clean…’” 

"Stop it! Stop it you bastard!”
