The Dead Zone by Stephen King

Description: Johnny, the small boy who skated at breakneck speed into an accident that for one horrifying moment plunged him into The Dead Zone.

Johnny Smith, the small-town schoolteacher who spun the wheel of fortune and won a four-and-a-half-year trip into The Dead Zone.

John Smith, who awakened from an interminable coma with an accursed power—the power to see the future and the terrible fate awaiting mankind in The Dead Zone.

No, not this, nor indeed this:

or this:

Will the real Johnny Smith please stand up, please stand up…

This film is a must for when I have finished with the book.

Loved the politics here in the brew up to the bi-centennial election: Ford, Reagan, Carter are in the mix. In New England there is an independent fascist contender doing well in popular appreciation, and he has a biker crew as bodyguards/intimidators. Remind you of anyone? All we need to do is watch carefully should he drag an innocent in front to save his bacon – it will happen.

I pretty much overdosed on this book, it worked so well as an audio whilst I curled up on the settee with my sudoku book.

Bettie☯ Just watched the film – oooo, so condensed, we had none of of the motor-cycle gang, or the intrigues of Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Carter, yet somehow, it was still worth watching.
