    This was my second time in The Dead Zone I remember the first time fondly as this is only one of two Stephen King books I read in one sitting the other being Pet Sematary The first time was in the late 1990s at an all night coffee shop in Cincinnati I read until the sun came up fueled on caffeine and the enthralling words of the Master of Horror himself I suppose knowing that I read it in one sitting says a lot about

    The Dead Zone is a brilliant book It has practically no filler It's criminally underrated It was a fun read from beginning to the end In a way Johnny Smith reminded me of myselfThe bare bones of the plot are not important I thought that a human life should always be considered with dignity That sometimes doesn't happen wi

    In my own personal opinion this is the best story Stephen King has ever written Not the most frightening not the most thrilling no but this novel has true literary merit And a tragic hero not a mere protagonist mind you who really ualifies for the titleJohn Smith his name immediately marks him out as the common man is blessed and cursed with second sight It began as a minor ability due to a skating accident

Smith the small town schoolteacher who spun the wheel of fortune and won a four and a half year trip into The Dead Zone John Smith who aw. Johnny Smith is one bad luck bastardHe starts off well enough as a nice guy with a talent for teaching and is in the early stages of what looks to be a very promising relationship with Sarah However a car accident leaves Johnny in a coma which nobody thinks he ll recover from Miraculously he wakes up 4 years later but he finds that Sarah has married someone else his mother has turned into a religious lunatic he s got a long and painful rehab to endure and he faces a mountain of debt from his hospital bills Oh and he now has psychic ability to learn details about a person by touching them or personal objects as well as sometimes seeing their futures This might seem like a gift but as Johnny uickly learns it s really a curse that eventually puts him on a collision course with a dangerous politician named Greg StillsonI ve always thought this was one of King s better books but hadn t read it for years A new audio version with James Franco narrating and doing a pretty good job of it got me motivated and I m pleased to find that it mostly lives up to my memory of itThe elephant in the room on this one is that even though it was published in 1979 the Stillson plot is about a populist demagogue who manages to rise in politics despite being a crazy and corrupt piece of shit just because he has talent for making rubes think that he s a maverick who tells it like it is even as they willfully ignore the obvious warning signs So it d be easy to say that King is a prophet these days Yeah he hit the mark with that one but on the other hand there s plenty of writers who have done stories about shady politiciansWhat I found interesting here is what King did with Johnny s mother Vera She starts out as someone with strong fundamental religious beliefs but Johnny s accident sends her over the high side and into the realm where she starts believing tabloid stories about Jesus living underground at the South Pole She s completely immune to facts and logic and she d rather rely on prayer than medication to handle her high blood pressureIt s fascinating to read a character like this in the 70s setting where tabloids and poorly printed tracts are how Vera gets her crackpot theories and how even then she uses them to create her own view of the world because reality doesn t suit her Fast forward to the 21st century where some people pick their news web sites based on how it conforms to what they want to believe as they spread rumors on Facebook about child sex rings in the basement of pizza restaurants that don t even have a basement and you realize that King had tapped into something that was on the rise even then Leaving aside the eerie similarities to America today what sets this apart from his other novels is the way that King focused on John Smith and made his story a genuine tragedy Johnny just wanting to try and resume some kind of normal life but unable to stop himself from using his power to help people and put himself in a media spotlight is incredibly compelling Uncle Stevie takes his sweet time with this so that it comes across as a slow burn and it s not really a horror novel although it can be creepy at times You can see where the bigger plot involving Johnny and Stillson is headed for a good long while although King still makes the journey there worth the trip and Johnny is one of his characters who haunts me the most
