Cell (quick review)

Cell is a recent-ish novel by Stephen King, in which cellphones cause people to go mad, and pretty quickly cause the downfall of human civilization. It is dedicated to George Romero and Richard Matheson, and that’s what it reads like: somewhere between scary, hilarious and thoughtful. It asks interesting questions about human behaviour and morality and is both exciting and well-written. It’s not as awe-inspiring and deep as Duma Key, but it’s a good book, and worth reading.
