Our main man, decides to take part in the Running Man, a reality show where contestants earn money per hour of avoiding death or capture by pretty much anyone in the communinty who cares to take a shot.

No matter, I bought it That is, if he can evade professional Hunters hired to track and kill him, and also disguise himself from the locals who are given money rewards if they report a sighting. Ben Richards is not an ex-cop who was wrongfully accused of anything.

But the crown jewel of the prize contests on live TV is the “The Running Man”, a manhunt that practically pushes you against everyone, against the world. He spoils his own book’s ending in it!

The Running Man

This is the last book in my series of Richard Riichard books that I’ve read this year. Ricbard was surprised enough to learn that Stephen King aka Richard Bachman has his own ‘Hunger Games’, only without teenage problems, love-triangles and happy endings.


It’s not hopeful, but it’s hard not to hope that he will somehow topple the powers that be. Granted, the characters Richards meets on the run are an interesting assortment of people.

Or is it different? When you think you can stop to breathe, someone shoots a gun or sirens blare in the background, and you’re off and running again. Gran bel finale, diretto, essenziale, minimale. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I know a lot of people like this book, but I wasn’t very impressed with it. You don’t really get to understand why the world is the way it is, why the people enjoy watching human beings being treadmilled to death or being hunted like rats for a little cash, or why no one can muster up sympathy for children dying from cancer.

So, in other words, we are totally ready for this. It’s the storyI think, that gets the spotlight this time around.


That’s pretty much all I can say. Along the way he reveals a dividing line bwchman the haves and the have-nots in this future place where a game show and the Free-Vee are devices used to advantage by the rich and a totalitarian government.

Richard Bachman and I are not friends. This is probably the fastest I’ve ever paged through a King novel. And no background music!! Richard Bachman really liked his dystopias, didn’t he? The wealthy have access wl luxury cars, groceries, and top notch medical care. Nov 01, Lyn rated it really liked it. He Wow, I have mixed feelings about this book. The contestants are always portrayed as horrible criminals, so the public generally wants to see them killed and feel it is justified.

Open Preview See a Problem? Secondly, as the main hunter, Evan McCone was really disappointing. With rumours of real Hunger Games being played out in Siberia, I found this sickeningly scary in its implications.

He was born into the wrong economic situation and grew bitter because of it.
