I came across The Cell this weekend in hardcover and decided to pick it up. From what I know about the plot of the book, it sounds like it should be interesting but considering that it is a newer Stephen King book, I’m a little leery. The truth is that when it comes to writers it doesn’t get any better then Stephen King, with the exception of some of his newer material. Don’t get me wrong, some of his newer stuff is great! Take Everything’s Eventual, for example. However, when I read some of the newer Dark Tower stories, I’m left scratching my head. Needless to say I have yet to read the last two books in the series and am not sure that I am going to. Regardless, I will read The Cell someday and we’ll see how well it goes.
