Revival Stephen King Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Stephen King presents “a fresh adrenaline rush of terror” (People) in this electrifying #1 New York Times bestseller!
The new minister came to Harlow, Maine, when Jamie Morton was a boy doing battle with his toy army men on the front lawn. The young Reverend Charles Jacobs and his beautiful wife brought new life to the local church and captivated their congregation. But with Jamie, he shares a secret obsession—a draw so powerful, it would have profound consequences five decades after the shattering tragedy that turned the preacher against God, and long after his final, scathing sermon. Now Jamie, a nomadic rock guitarist hooked on heroin, meets Charles Jacobs again. And when their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, Jamie discovers that the word revival has many meanings….

Another good one
By shay houser
Pretty good, he’s still the best ever
A Gripping Story, A King Ending
King is famously known for his ability to weave intricate story lines with gritty detail, and he does not fall short in regard to ‘Revival’. A strong starting narrative develops an instant connection with the speaker and forces you to care for him. His journey is long and arduous, but it is the reoccurring appearances of his childhood pastor throughout his life that forges his path. Prepare to enjoy a tale that questions the very notion of reality, religion, and relief after death, but don’t expect numerous cliffhangers in transitions. The story itself is a wonderful work of fiction, but doesn’t quite match his previous novels that grip you so hard you find yourself hours past your perceived time. While it is not a constant attack on your psyche, it is a very well crafted piece you will ultimately enjoy.
Very scary it gives life to all of my wondering I do at 4 am about life and death and the meaning of it all. As I read I could picture every scene. It scared me to death and back. Great writer and story teller that Stephen King is. I love his words and always will. Keep em coming scare master!!
I’ve been reading Stephen King since the late 80s and have read many, though not all, his novels. I think he’s actually getting better. This one is such a well-told story, I read it twice.
Probably one of the...
Scariest endings of a book that I’ve read in a while. It left me quite disturbed. If anyone thought that Stephen King had dropped off at all, this book put him back on top of the greatest writers of this generation list. LONG LIVE THE KING!!!
Horrifying and beautiful
My absolute favorite book.
Could of been decent if the ending did not make it so stupid.
As good as it ever was

Another treat from SK. He is equally adept at writing youthful love as he is at writing from an elder’s perspective. This book has both in equal measure.
