    On the first day of May, 100 teenage boys meet for a race known as The Long Walk. If you break the rules, you get three warnings. If you exceed your limit, what happens is absolutely terrifying.

    No

    It was OK, he was working with very little

    Anger


    Any additional comments?

    This was a really bad short story turned into a really awful novel. We know of no reason why they walked, why this society was a-moral and monstrous, what the walk was intended to accomplish or why it was ever instituted. I have often been inspired, moved, wildly entertained and generally very pleased with Stephen King's works...never bored to tears and a bit angry for foisting a book on us that should have stayed in the proverbial shoebox under the desk. This book is, all in all, a tremendous waste of time.
