Civilization doesn’t end with a bang or a whimper. It ends with a call on your cell phone. What happens on the afternoon of October 1 came to be known as the Pulse, a signal sent though every operating cell phone that turns its user into something … well, something less than human. Savage, murderous, unthinking-and on a wanton rampage. Terrorist act? Cyber prank gone haywire? It really doesn’t matter, not to the people who avoided the technological attack. What matters to them is surviving the aftermath. Before long a band of them-“normies” is how they think of themselves-have gathered on the grounds of Gaiten Academy, where the headmaster and one remaining student have something awesome and terrifying to show them on the school’s moonlit soccer field. Clearly there can be no escape. The only option is to take them on.
I read this book ages ago (oh wow it was 2006? How old am I 😦 ) and actually enjoyed the mystery and intrigue. I just wonder if the new movie adaptation will follow suit. I watched the trailer and I’m not so keen after all. By it’s King so I’m going to watch it anyway. Maybe I’ll reread the book. *shrugs*
You know who Stephen King is. I will instead take this opportunity to apologize for referencing him so often haha. Not.
