Once upon a time, a fellow named Richard Bachman wrote Blaze on an Olivetti typewriter, then turned the machine over to Stephen King, who used it to write Carrie. Bachman died in 1985 ("cancer of the pseudonym"), but this last gripping Bachman novel resurfaced after being hidden away for decades -- an unforgettable crime story tinged with sadness and suspense. Clayton Blaisdell, Jr., was always a small-time delinquent. None too bright either, thanks to the beatings he got as a kid. Then Blaze met George Rackley, a seasoned pro with a hundred cons and one big idea. The kidnapping should go off without a hitch, with George as the brains behind their dangerous scheme. But there's only one problem: by the time the deal goes down, Blaze's partner in crime is dead. Or is he? Includes a previously uncollected story, "Memory" -- the riveting opening to Stephen King's new Scribner hardcover novel, Duma Key.

3.0 Słów kilka o przemocy...
Tym razem zostajemy uraczeni przez Bachmana/Kinga trudnym tematem, tworzącym mocną i wyrazistą książkę, choć jest ona przy tym przytłaczająca. Przede wszystkim traktuje ona o przemocy i jej konsekwencjach, potocznie nazywanych „zejściem na złą drogę”. Polecam, choć nie jest to lektura łatwa.

3.0 Blaze
No nie, nie obrażę się, wyrosłem już z wieku, w którym ludzie się obrażają (co wcale nie znaczy, że zdziadziałem, mam nadzieję). Ponadto jest kilka powodów, które mi nie pozwalają się obrazić na tą pozycję: po pierwsze, lubię Kingę i już; po drugie, autor sam we wstępie pisze, że nie jest to jego ud...

It wasn't one of his best, at all, but it is a "trunk" novel, i.e. one they hadn't previously published then decided to...
