THE OUTSIDER BY STEPHEN KING
Scribbler, Release Date: May 22, 2018
5 / 5 Stars | Review by Ink
In the style of unsettling storytelling that has been his trademark, The Outsider is King at his finest. When the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in a town park, fingers point at an upstanding citizen, but an ironclad case quickly unravels, spinning the reader in a web of secrets, suspense, and tension such as only King can deliver.
Dark and twisted, King has a way of making the unimaginable seem possible and even mundane--and deeply disturbing. The Outsider gives a subtle nod to current society as the story ebbs and flows along with the character’s lives with perfect pacing, plotting, and a swarm of colorful language that only king an deliver. This is one of those “call in sick” kind of books that you won't be able to stop reading--so long as you keep the lights on.
