A spectacularly dark and electrifying novel about addiction, religion, music and what might exist on the other side of life.
In a small New England town, in the early 60s, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister, Charles Jacobs. Soon they forge a deep bond, based on their fascination with simple experiments in electricity.
Decades later, Jamie is living a nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll. Now an addict, he sees Jacobs again - a showman on stage, creating dazzling 'portraits in lightning' - and their meeting has profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil's devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.
This rich and disturbing novel spans five decades on its way to the most terrifying conclusion Stephen King has ever written. It's a masterpiece from King, in the great American tradition of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe.

Thank you Mr King, for just being nefariously minded...
Hated this book with a passion. Boring beyond belief (my God do we go on about musicians, guitars, riffs, the recording industry) ad nauseum. It dragged on and on and on - a Stephen King book should take two days max to get through not three weeks which I had to force myself to continue all to a predictable and horrible ending (not to mention depressing) cause when you die you go to hell. Dude, maybe it's time to retire or just stick to clowns in the sewer this was woeful. The whole book needed reviving.
Revival is classic King
Nothing more to say, really. This constant reader found "Revival" to be as consistently riveting as all of Mr King's works.
