WHERE WERE YOU ON OCTOBER 1ST AT 303 PMGraphic artist Clay Riddell was in the heart of Boston on that brilliant aut Literary critics can moan all they want about Stephen King's penny dreadful oeuvre but his mastery at the craft of storytelling is indisputable King writes his novels like a seduction the story unfolding delicately and deliberately As any Stephen King fan knows his coy expository chapters often take up the first hundred pages or In Cell however the reader is brutally dragged into the main action unspeakable senseless violence within the first seven pages Cell is by far King's most brutal transgressive work to dateMany have compared Cell to his earlier epic The Stand On the surface the novels are uite similar an apocolyptic event threatens the very existence of the human race as a band of survivors struggle to come to terms with the carnage and avert further catastrophe Cell however is the far mature novel of the pair The Stand was in many ways a novel by an idealistic youth whereas Cell is filled with the trenchant and world weary observations of an adult The subtext is laden with so much chillingly apt futurist rhetoric that it is as though the author had Marshall McLuhan whispering plot devices and metaphors into his ear as he labored over his typewriter King manages to explore several of the major sociocultural conflicts of our time most persuasively the end of the era of individualism and the rise of collectivism here symptomatic of heavy reliance on technology Whereas many dystopian novels are almost comically blunt when expounding upon the dangers of collectivism King's horrific plot and action give his metaphors a sort of subtlety that renders his subtext much graceful and easier to stomach than the work of Ayn RandAs the epigraphs indicate it is also a meditation on the intrinsic violence of the human race King clearly feels as though the world is out of control and wants to find out why His preferred genre horror is an excellent one with which to consider the depravaties of modern life The Stand was a novel that if not upbeat was at least optimistic a reflection of the times in which it was written There was also violence but it had its own biblical logic if violence can ever be called logical In Cell the violence is senseless oppressive and omnipresent There seems to be little promise for a better world at least not one inhabited by human beingsMany reviewers took issue with the unresolved ending Considering the subtext of the novel however the reader will find that the ending's abruptness actually informs the sense that Cell besides being an excellent horror yarn is a meticulously painted portrait of the horrors of global culture The many crises of our time are still developing and mutating The end is not yet it seems in sight
