The Dead Zone, by Stephen King

Another King book I've not read for over thirty years. I read this because I (like many others) made the connection with this story and the Trump presidential campaign.

I was really moved by this book. Great read if maybe a bit superficial. But hard to put down Makes me want to read more Stephen king and probably will start on The Shining straight away.

One of the bits where Johnny grabs the doctors hand and starts telling him stuff about his past literally gave me butterflies in my stomach. This was not dissimilar to the effect in Saturday where the consultant is mugged, and tells his attacker "I know what's wrong with you". I must be a sucker for this sort of thing.
