A MOMENT LATER, A RED HEADED BOY'S FACE WAS BLOWN AWAY
A Good book, written by a great author. I am in agreement with several of my fellow reviewers: Beverly- Who would have thought kids walking would make such a good story. I am always amazed in how King takes so little and does so much with it. A woman tied in her bed, a man stuck in bed and being tortured by a crazy lady, a girl lost in the woods etc... King is the expert at building characters. I have said it one hundred times, King's books are so scary because we get to know the characters and care what happens to them. Khadeejah- Story was intense. Mostly towards the end, these kids are in so much pain, physically and mentally and the writing is intense, which leads to Dustin- My feet still hurt. I felt I was on the walk, I felt tired, physically and mentally, I was worried I would get three warnings. I also agree with Jenna- Want to know more about the state. The United States these boys live in, is not very well explained. A police state is hinted at, but no world building is done here. Course, I hark back to character development, King rarely builds universes he seems to like us to use our imaginations to come up with what we think.
I liked the book and it pulled at my heart strings.

I have recommended this book. Written years before all the dystopian teen sacrifice stories, this one rules them all.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Garrety of course but also McVrees is the typical tragic hero.
Which scene was your favorite?
No one particular scene stood out but the story still haunts me.
If you could rename The Long Walk, what would you call it?
Farewell to Youth.
