Publisher's Summary

The unpause-able novel of one man's quest to find the source of his nightmare and to reverse it before he becomes...nothing at all. This number-one national best seller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, "pulsates with evil...it will have you on the edge of your seat" (Publishers Weekly).
Billy Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when his lack of attention results in the death of an old gypsy lady on the street. Overweight Halleck is a lawyer with connections, though, and he gets off with a slap on the wrist. After the trial, the victim's ancient father curses him with a single word: "thinner". Shedding weight by the week, Halleck is desperate enough for one last gamble...one that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away.
With an introduction by Stephen King on "The Importance of Being Bachman", Thinner is a novel of "undeniable suspense" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) and "genuine chills" (Kirkus Reviews).

Amazing book, terrible movie!

Watched the movie right after finishing the book, and boy did they mess that story up for the big screen! This book is really great, you can follow the main character as he transforms from dopey fatty to desperate, betrayed loner on a mission to save his life. The movie tried too hard to stay true to the source material and ended up a jumbled mess.

Love this book

I notice it was different from the movie. Glad I notice it. I much from now on read and listen to the book then watch the movie for that particular book. Great work again from my favorite author Stephen King.
