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.
CELL is classic Stephen King, a story of gory horror and white-knuckling suspense
that makes the unimaginable entirely plausible and totally fascinating.
