** spoiler alert ** This book started out strong. It had great description and I really got a great mental picture of the crazy scene in Boston on OCtober 1st. Great gore. Stephen King is always great at creating a sense of creepy. The only complaint about the book is that it was only about the handful of core characters who weren't that interesting. Clay spends a lot of time in his head and just doesn't seem like someone I'd like to be friends with. Tom's ambiguous sexuality is boring. Alice was interesting, but she didn't make it to the end of the story. Her fate was pretty exciting though. But really, I'd like to have known more about The Pulse. Who created it? Why? This book started out a lot like The Stand, but then left me flat at the end. There should have been more. You spend 400 some odd pages getting to know these characters and in the end you don't even know what happens to any of them.
