    When some cash-poor college students volunteer for an experiment, they have no idea of the Pandora's Box they are about to unleash. Years later, one of them, Andy McGee, is on the run from The Shop, with his daughter, Charlie. Can Andy and Charlie evade The Shop before their world goes up in flames?First off, for years now, I cannot read the title without hearing the Prodigy song of the same name. Maybe he'll follow this one up with a book called Fuel my Fire or Smack My Bitch Up one of these da [...]

    Buddy Read with my pal, The Jeff.I don't think the scariest thing about this book is the fact that this tiny kid has the power to potentially crack the Earth in half.Don't get me wronge thought of that curls my toes.The genius of this book is that your fear builds with the father's fear. And it's not the fear of simply being captured. He fears what all of this is doing to his daughter, and he fears what he has had to do to his daughter in order to keep her safe from herself.The part that really [...]

  • Edward Lorn

    I can find absolutely nothing bad to say about this book. Firestarter is up there with 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, and It. This one isn't as creep-up-on-you scary as the aforementioned novels, but Firestarter is terrifying. To image a world wherein Charlie McGee exists is a scary thought indeed. This is one of the few King books that has absolutely zero lulls in the narrative. When the pace does slow, King shows off his superhuman character development skills. He doesn't simply make his character [...]

  • Ron

    What I liked most about Firestarter was the bond between a father and his daughter. The character development is solid in this Stephen King story, especially considering the relationship of Charlie and Andy McGee. Maybe I liked this element of the book because they are the victims, and I always root for the underdog. Also, because it’s clear how much Andy loves his daughter. He would give his life for her. A short afterward follows the end of the book. In it, King thanks his own daughter, who [...]

    youtube/watch?v=en1uwIDamn hippy musicians!This was a buddy read with my bestest pal, Firestar.Stephen King sure as hell likes his characters with a heaping helping of psy-abilities. At the time of this writing, Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, The Shining, The Stand and The Dead Zone had been published (needless to say, this is one hell of a run) and three out of five employed characters with some sort of psychic ability. Here, Andy and Vicky were part of an experiment that left them with “powers” [...]

    Βαθμολογία: 9/10Το Firestarter ήταν ένα από τα λίγα βιβλία του Στίβεν Κινγκ που για κάποιον άγνωστο λόγο παρέμενε μέχρι τώρα αμετάφραστο στην γλώσσα μας. Ειλικρινά δυσκολεύομαι να κατανοήσω τους λόγους για τους οποίους αυτό το βιβλίο δεν κυκλοφορούσε τόσα χρόνια στα ελληνικά (το 1 [...]

    Buddy Read with AnneHave you ever thought about how it would be like to possess superpowers like being able to set things on fire with the simple power of your thoughts? Surely you have, even if pyrokinesis might not precisely be what people imagine when thinking about superpowers. Just think about it for a moment: You could wander through the streets and destroy entire cities; you could burn the people who want something bad to happen to you; you have all the power necessary to climb to the ver [...]

    Next up on my Stephen King quest is Firestarter, again it’s not a review as such but a collection of my thoughts on the book. So there most definitely will be spoilers.Firestarter was originally released in 1980 and was the Kings 6th release not including The Star Invaders.This story is a page turning masterpiece that flows effortlessly with literally no break in the pace whatsoever, from the initial chase and capture, to John Rainbird ruthlessly planning and playing with a young girl’s emot [...]

  • Anne

    Firestarter was my second book by Stephen King. Somehow it managed to be a lot worse than Carrie, which was my first. I'll be bluntly honest with you, reading this almost felt like flipping through 520 pages of nothing. I guess it's easy to forgive this disappointment because this book is early King, and regardless of the fact that I'm not an expert in the King field, it seems that this lacked a certain va-va-voom factor which his books are known for. And besides, Fabian is a King expert and he [...]

    8,5 στα 10.Πολύ ωραίο βιβλίο. Αν δεν κάνω λάθος πρέπει να είναι κάπου το 7ο ή το 8ο που κυκλοφόρησε ο Κινγκ και είναι από εκείνα που δεν ανήκουν στα ''δρακουλίστικά” του, όπως έλεγε κάποτε ο περιπτεράς της γειτονίας μου. Και, όντως, αυτό είναι καθαρά ανθρωποκεντρικό και εστιάζει σ [...]

  • Chris

    This may very well be one of the earliest subtle horror stories from King. That said, this one wasn't a scare-fest out to make the reader piss himself/herself like many of his early works. But here the terror is perhaps worse. In this novel, the "monsters" are normal human beings that work for the US government. Agents of The Shop earn a paycheck from the legitimate government to keep America "safe". They just might be scarier than Cujo, Barlow, Pennywise, Annie Wilkes, Tak, and the Crimson King [...]

    Oh. my. gosh. review to come

  • Nandakishore Varma

    This was the first novel of Stephen King I bought - well, not exactly me. I was laid up in bed with a dislocated knee and my aunt bought it for me, to keep me through the monotonous days.But somehow, I never got around to reading it at that time. It was only about an year later, after finishing The Shining, that I read it. By that time I was willing to love anything by Stephen King, and this book didn't disappoint.Charlene McGee is a girl with a gift - pyrokinesis, i.e the ability to set things [...]

    It all started with twelve broke college students. Andy’s friend told him about a drug trail at the university that was paying each participant $200. Thinking ‘easy cash’, Andy goes for it. He ends up spending an undetermined amount of time there and is given the drug which also contains some kind of hallucinogenic. He also meets the woman that would later become his wife, Victoria, and during the trial, they both realize they can communicate with out speaking. After it was over, both were [...]

    Stephen Kings 9th is for me truly a partly hidden (or at least partly forgotten) gem! This sailed up amongst my very favorites of this mans books now and is the first that I actually changed (the 5-level) rating of following my re-read. The book starts in the midst of a breathtaking white knuckle hunt for a man and his daughter and does not stop for as much as a breather during the first third. The eventual decrease of the furious pace comes with an increase of terror and dread though, so no res [...]

  • Kathryn

    Sometimes King comes up with the best and most creative ideas. Firestarter was no exception. The whole idea behind a government experiment giving people "abilities" is pure genius. Then, to twist it a bit to make those abilities effect human genetics to give the offspring of those who participated in this government experiment have abilities as well? Genius. I loved the whole idea of the story. When King does sci-fi, sometimes he really gets it right. The Dead Zone, anyone? It was one of the bes [...]

    Having always been a big fan of the film, I was anxious to experience the fire starting abilities of Charlie in book form. Did the book end up leaving a burned imprint in my mind as much as the movie did?Stephen King's Firestarter, written in his older school style, begins with Charlie and Andy McGee on the run from a company called “The Shop”. The first few chapters are riddled with intriguing flashbacks to fill the reader in on current day situations and up the desperation of the protagoni [...]

  • Joel

    Pero que tediosoMe es difícil dar una calificación al libro. La idea es interesante, no es original (Para nada) peor sí interesante. Un libro de ciencia ficción sobre dos "mutantes" perseguidos para investigar sus dones prodigiosos. Con un comienzo intrépido que en lugar de ser una prueba de lo bueno que resultaría el libro fue todo lo contrario. El libro decae en cada capítulo. Y no porque cuente algo aburrido, sino por todas las divagaciones que tienen sus personajes que con más que in [...]

  • FrancoSantos

    2.5Es un libro que empieza con muy buen ritmo, muy rápido, sin embargo, a medida que iba avanzando se me hacía cada vez más pesado. En la mitad ya me era muy tedioso; no lo soportaba. Tiene como 350 páginas sumamente aburridas, repetitivas, pesadas, lentas. Perdón, King, pero este libro no fue para mí. Hay gente que lo ama, lamentablemente yo no puedo decir lo mismo.Tengo que aceptar, no obstante, que el final me encantó.Un punto positivo -además del inicio y el final- fueron los persona [...]

    Firestarter has definitely earned a place in my top 10 Kings! This is King writing at his very bestThis book combines some of my very favourite elements of a novel: mental powers such as telekinesis and pyrokinesis; an awesome young female protagonist who isn't perfect/infallibly strong; and a ruthless, brutal, government secret agency who will stop at nothing in the name of national security. If that doesn't sound great to you then I dunno what does!.Charlie McGee is now one of my fave protagon [...]

  • Joe Valdez

    I had assumptions about Stephen King's Firestarter. I flipped through it a couple of years ago and don't remember being very taken by it. The book has a central flaw I'll get to later. I also might not have been in the mood for a psychic-on-the-run-from-the-government book, a sub-genre I find lazy. If the psychic is so powerful, what's she doing detained in a secret government lab? is what I usually wonder.Then there's the film adaptation that was set to be directed by the brilliant John Carpent [...]

    (Reading Challenge: 10. Un bestseller del New York Times)A cautionary tale about not get involved in paid college experiments, no matter how much you need the money.Si estás en busca de un libro de horror, esto no es lo que buscas. Creo que podria definirse más bien como uno de conspiración gubernamental.Lo tienen encerrado en una habitación pequeña con una puerta que no puede abrir y una cerradura que no puede forzar. Lo someten a pruebas. Dobla llaves. Cierra puertas. Y según me han dich [...]

    An inversion of the supernatural horror2 August 2012 This book is a good example of why I like a lot of Stephen King's earlier books; while it deals with horror-like themes we are not dealing with hordes of zombies or vampires plotting to take over the world but rather with an extra-ordinary girl who is on the run from the government. Most of the horror movies that I have seen, or the ones that like to have the moniker of horror, deal with a supernatural creature who pursues the mundane, however [...]

    Andy and his daughter Charlene, Charlie for short, are on the run. A government agency known as The Shop are after them. Years ago, The Shop was responsible for administering a secret experiemental drug into the veins of Charlie's parents when they were broke and naive college kids. The drug, called Lot Number Six, went helter-skelter through most of it's test subjects causing carnage which required a massive government effort to coverup the mess. For Charlie's parents, something in the drug alt [...]

    When I read this one the first time in junior high, I distinctly remember not being able to finish it. After re-reading it, I have absolutely no idea why. King has put together a moving, engaging story with characters that you care about and some very well-written antagonists.If you don't know already, the story is basically about a couple who participated in a research project in college where they were injected with drugs that produced some psychic powers, these drugs have had some residual ef [...]

  • Bill

    This is another of King's earlier novels that I hadn't read because I had seen the movie adaptation all those years ago. So a good thirty years have past, and now is a good time to go back every now and then and start knocking these off. King is my favourite author and I will read everything by him.I'm going with 3 stars here. While this was a good novel, I can't really say that there is much that will really stick with me in the long run. King really resonates with me when he is in nostalgic mo [...]

  • Damien

    In Firestarter, Stephen King manages to pull together beautiful character development, political commentary that remains relevant despite this book being over thirty years old and that signature unsettling terror.King is often criticised for being overly wordy but, in this case, there is an efficiency of writing that proves beyond any doubt that King can tell a tale with urgency. This book hits the ground running and does not let up until the last page. And while the story is very much one of tw [...]

    Ένα βιβλίο που έκανε τριάντα επτά ολόκληρα χρόνια να κυκλοφορήσει στα ελληνικά. Από το 1980, όπου κυκλοφόρησε στα αγγλικά (σύμφωνα με τις πληροφορίες που μας δίνει το βιβλίο στις πρώτες του σελίδες ) κυκλοφόρησε φέτος στην χώρα μας. Και σίγουρα πάντως ο λόγος δεν ήταν ότι το βι [...]

  • Ben Loory

    i kinda love the ending, i mean the very last page, where she gets up the nerve to finally take her story to the one life-saving, incorruptible news outlet in the country, powerful enough to take on the government and it's Rolling Stone. that was such a great window into a certain time and headspace in this country. it almost brought tears to my eyese rest of the book is interesting (CIA/LSD/mind-control) and often fun, and of course very readable. but a) it's a SF/suspense/thriller type thing, [...]

  • Rade

    I am not sure how to describe this book. It is good, it is emotional at times, and it is creepy in a subtle way. Once again King shines in his ability to depict real characters who are not one dimensional or shallow, the kind that you can cheer on as they progress throughout the book and hope they don't get whacked by the end of it. Lots of emotion in this one as a dad who gets cornered tries to assure his young daughter that she will eventually have a normal life, free of running and free to pu [...]
