Reading the new king is a malicious act for the reader because it causes a persistent, indelible sense of inadequacy and nothingness. What the writer presents to us in” exaltation “ is just a faint sketch of one of the successive monumental, typical king novels, which lacked neither idea nor zeal.
Basically, looking back at the totality of the creativity of the American writer, “Rise” seems to be a joke that was released to the publishing market. This novel is hardly even a story. King got used to his stories, tedious, very lengthy introductions to the plot the right one-which, after all, we all love, and which occur not only in full-scale novels, but also in stories reprinted in collections.
In the “Exaltation”, which is shorter than the one in response, introducing gawęda, king immediately, without further ADO, goes to business. And it’s not that the changes that the author presents in his latest book seem strange to me, which causes my discomfort, and so I consider a negative phenomenon. Two things surprise me: the surprisingly low level of this text, as well as the fact of the release of this short form to the market in the form of a separate, independent existence.
“Rise” can be an addition to a full-scale novel, as a context, recognition, surprise; or be reprinted, more like a curiosity than a full-fledged the narrative, in another collection of short stories. Intentionally write “interesting fact”, as for fans of the King” Rise ” will be disappointing, but, nevertheless, a novelty. I was surprised how ridiculous the story was. To say that this book is about anything, to say nothing-it is a text that is ashamed to put in the box. Especially for someone like king.
“Rise” is a story about a man in his Prime, who notes a pathological disease: suddenly begins to lose weight dramatically. However, this is not a repetition of “Chudszego”, the main character, Scott Carey, does not suffer from any disease, what is more-about weight loss learns only after stanięciu weight, his body is not subject to any changes, health does not change. Like its cursed hero, Stephen King’s Elevation is bizarrely thin. The new situation does not particularly affect Scott’s life, on the contrary — never felt better. The main character decides to put up with slow… disappearance?
King once again introduces us to the well-known universe of the town of castle Rock, where the most ridiculous things happen (if we stopniować absurdity). Absurd as sudden weight loss with no visible bodily changes not caused by disease; or the burning hostility of residents to local lesbian marriage, whose financial problems are caused only by intolerance and hostility of neighbors. The king in this book addresses the issue of homosexuality, how a non-heteronormative relationship (especially legalized) is perceived and handled by a seemingly open and tolerant American society. “Rise” is some scheme, which, it would seem, has long been eliminated.
According to local residents of castle Rock, the marriage of two women is a phenomenon of the disease that should not exist, and if it has already happened, it should remain a secret. This “pathology” is represented as the neighbors of the protagonist, who are the owners of local restaurants, enjoying great food and poor attendance, caused solely by their mutual relationship. The king in the”elevation” does not fight intolerance, but only signals about it, notes its continuation. Unfortunately, the orientation of the thread ends with a list of important, good aspects of this book.
It’s hard for me to write that “rise” is “king at its worst” because king isn’t in that book too much. That’s right, the universe, some heroes, and that would be the end of that enumeration. If I hadn’t known that this story made king, I would suspect its the uprising of one of the sons of the writer. But no, come back, it would be shameless on my part. “Elevation” is a dune of novels, deserts.
In this story there is nothing but important-the thread of homosexual (though not well built, suppose, however, that the main number, the main thing-the idea) and very little pomyślanej stories about the disappearance of the protagonist, which is usually a lot of major problems than what is now cease to exist. I decompose my hands helplessly. I hope “rise” is the king’s game with the reader, proving that even his weak books will be read by the crowds. Forgive the king, the King knows what he’s doing. I probably believe him, though.
