October Book Club - Stephen King's Carrie and Mr. Mercedes
Start your reading now, everyone...if you dare... Our October Book Club will be a double thrills and chills fest with Stephen King's legendary debut, Carrie and NYT bestseller, Mr. Mercedes! RSVP Note to Thrillers and Chillers: I scheduled this Meetup well in advance to give members time to get the books and read. That said, I know plans are apt to change, so please join the waiting list if you would like to attend this Meetup! Synopsis for Carrie: Stephen King's legendary debut, about a teenage outcast and the revenge she enacts on her classmates. Carrie White may be picked on by her classmates, but she has a gift. She can move things with her mind. Doors lock. Candles fall. This is her power and her problem. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offers Carrie a chance to be a normal...until an unexpected cruelty turns her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that no one will ever forget. "A master storyteller." --The Los Angeles Times "Guaranteed to chill you." --The New York Times "Gory and horrifying.... You can't put it down." --Chicago Tribune Synopsis for Mr. Mercedes: In a high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a lone killer from blowing up thousands. “Mr. Mercedes is a rich, resonant, exceptionally readable accomplishment by a man who can write in whatever genre he chooses” (The Washington Post). Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable. WINNER OF THE EDGAR AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL "Pays off exuberantly... Surprising and invigorating." (Megan Abbott The New York Times) "Classic Stephen King. Creepy, yet realistic characters that get under your skin and stay there, a compelling story that twists and turns at breakneck speed, and delightful prose that, once again, proves that one of America’s greatest natural storytellers is also one of its finest writers." (Associated Press)
