Never before on a retail CD! Stephen King reads his bestseller about a little mining town, Desperation, that many will enter on their way to somewhere else. But getting out is not easy as it would seem…Located off a desolate stretch of Interstate 50, Desperation, Nevada, has few connections with the rest of the world. It is a place, though, where the seams between worlds are thin. And it is a place where several travelers are abducted by Collie Entragian, the maniacal police officer of Desperation. Entragian uses various ploys for the abductions, from an arrest for drug possession to “rescuing” a family from a nonexistent gunman. There’s something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation’s landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as one of the travelers, young David Carver, seems to know—though it scares him nearly to death to realize it—so are the forces summoned to combat them.

Here we have it, folks: the biggest shock yet in the Stephen King reread. Before today, I considered Desperation bottom-of-the-barrel King. Desperate King. I felt the religiosity was blatant, tasteless; the story derivative of things King had done better before. Funny how our tastes evolve and cha...
Desesperación es un infierno constante. Creo que divido el libro en dos partes. La primera es muy violenta, e imposible de dejar de leer. Luego empiezan las "revelaciónes", en lo que llamaría segunda parte, y todo queda a criterio del lector. No imaginaba que King, en un libro así, cerraria con un ...
The first time I read Desperation, I read it back to back with The Regulators in the fall 1996. Had I been reviewing in my teenage years, I probably would have given this two stars, and The Regulators four stars. The latter is a fun book from beginning to end, while Desperation takes off like a crac...
Desperation is the name of the Nevada mining town where the main characters become stranded and what I felt while I read this book,the first few chapters are insane!.Without giving away most of the plot,it's a story about the battle between good and evil in a ghost town where something went terribly...
