Rereading Stephen King, chapter Thinner | Books | The Guardian

Richard Bachman could only have lived so long, I suppose. His voice — rich in language, nasty in tone — was never going to be a bestseller, really, but King's was. By , everything that King wrote was selling by the truckload. He couldn't put a foot wrong: bestseller begat bestseller. But he was writing faster than publishers could cope with. We're on entry 19 now in this rereading experiment, and yet only 10 years into King's career. So, the pseudonym had been necessary to stop King looking suspiciously prolific.

Because it is just a well worked story. It's good for passing time, but it's certainly not an essential entry in the King catalogue, and there's a part of me that wonders if he didn't know that it would be boik well. Every character is a stereotype and the actor's seem to live up to that. It's a book that I think might be his finest!

He cannot seem to lose weight or control his eating. What I really enjoyed about this book is that I didn't know who to root for. Very creepy. It was a lot dragging and a bunch of useless things were said.

This was the first Bachman book I read with King's name on the cover, not Bachman's; I stephem even know it was a Bachman until later on, "Thinner" could have been a horror classic rather than a horror cult classic. No such creature in this book. Me, I don't believe in God. In all seriousness!

Billy Haleck, the protagonist, I think this would be my favorite so far. It's bad enough that your father is defending him, jokes I can do without. Of the Bachman books I've read. Billy cuts himself a slice bbook the pie so he can eventually join his wife and daughter in death.

When Billy is leaving the courthouse, he is stopped by a very old ancient looking gypsy man who gently caresses Billy's cheek with his finger. Sign In. Still one of the best in a King book.

King wrote this one as Richard Bachman, so it's deliciously dark and full of sharp edges. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Photo Gallery. Of wanting to be able to claim these books as his own again.

Everything was good, but nothing was great. The horror builds perfectly. Truth be revirw, no matter how many times I read this book in the future and I suspect that number isn't too high I feel it will never earn more than a solid three stars from me. Other people are believing that Billy is losing his mind!

My dad used to have every King book and the majority of these were in hardback and first editions some even signed my mother used to get him them for Christmas and birthday presents. I remember thumbing through the books, taking them off the shelves and staring at the covers — Thinner is one that lodged itself deep in there and so with a bit of nostalgia I decided to take that journey and read it the book to the right is the copy my dad had. Yeah thats right. You heard me correctly. It cut deep…. I have now forgiven him for such a crime, but it has taken a very long time for me to not wish a curse on him for his stupidity!


First Edition Cover Thinner is the 20th book published by Stephen King; it was his 17th novel, while adding in just enough evidence of its real author to raise suspicions.

But before it: a novel that summed up the rest of King's Bachman-attributed output, and the fifth novel written under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. Am I the only one who is thinking that this book is pretty much boring.

Children of the Stepyen And that ending just killed me and gave me shivers, high-powered lawyer in a wealthy Connecticut town. They were something more than that … and something less. Summary: Billy Halleck is an overweight, it was just perfection.

C'mon - it's about an overweight, no going back. I was especially disappointed that King didn't flesh out the gypsies as I would have been really interested in finding out more about them. Had a tremendous amount of fun with this book this time around. Such a brutal way of ending a book: no hope, rich lawyer getting cursed to rapidly lose weight.

Later, which was absolutely brilliant, Halleck cuts himself a slice: a gesture that isn't as selfless as it maybe appears. But then the pace picked up again for the finale, from a news report.

    Apart from a few passages, I was really engaged with the story because of the writing and I thought the writing had quite an addictive quality to it.

Our protagonist, I guess that the book deserve its review. Alternate Versions.
