Stephen King’s #1 national 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…"I see holes like eyes. My mind is full of them." For all intents and purposes, police officer Collie Entragian, chief law enforcement for the small mining town of Desperation, Nevada, appears to be completely insane. He's taken to stopping vehicles along the desolate Interstate 50 and abducting unwary travelers with various unusual ploys. There's something very wrong here in Desperation...and Officer Entragian is only at the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation's landscape, and the horrifying evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But one of Entragian's victims, young David Carver, seems to know—and it scares him nearly to death to realize this truth—that the forces being summoned to combat this frightful, maniacal aberration are of equal and opposite intensity.... "A big, serious, scary novel...King is at the top of his game." —Entertainment Weekly "Surreal, tragic, scary...Terror that resonates long after the book is finished." —The Washington Post Book World "Astonishing...[a] deeply moving and enthralling masterpiece!" —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

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...
