Fallon's the biggest town on Highway 50, and that's mostly farming.
It says in the guidebook that they dammed their lake and made irrigation possible. Cantaloupes is what they grow, mostly. And I think there's a military base nearby.
Fallon was a Pony Express stop, did you know that?
He touched her left breast briefly with his right hand. Not just Fallon, either. Any state where you can't see a house or even a tree, in any direction, and they nail cats to speed-limit signs, I'd leave. Sometimes he couldn't tell when Mary was serious and when she was just gassing, and this was one of those times.
Mine too, for that matter. The sky alone is enough to freak me out. Ever since we left this morning, I've felt it up there, pressing down on me.
There's too goddam much of it. Not a truck, which was just about all they'd seen since leaving Fallon and all headed the other way, west , but a car. Really burning up the road, too. She thought about it, then shook her head. Even this And I suppose I'll remember it the rest of my life. But it's And even if we'd taken , it's all desert.
Tumbling tumbleweeds. The oncomer was a police-car, doing at least ninety. He squeezed over toward the shoulder until the righthand wheels began to rumble on the hardpan and spume up dust.
What are you doing? Big chrome grille, coming up fast and reflecting such a savage oblong of sun that he had to squint There's a cop behind us and he's in a hurry. Maybe he's got a line on--" The police-car blasted by, making the Acura which belonged to Peter's sister rock in its backwash. It was indeed white, and dusty from the doorhandles down. There was a decal on the side, but the car was gone before Pete caught more than a glimpse of it. Destry, maybe.
Seriously, he writes amazingly so why give a damn what he writes about?
Desperation is a perfect example of horror and fantastic writing and anyone who doesn't think so can go I'm an indecisive rater and my rating on this will probably fluctuate with mood and memory but regardless of that this is a great read.
Desperation is a perfect example of horror and fantastic writing and anyone who doesn't think so can go stick their nose in some classics of literature and sip wine and think about how superior they are.
The first thing that gripped me in this book was how goddamn creepy it really was. There are few things that scare me, really, but cops are one of them.
Cops scare me because I'm terrified of prison. I have no reason to go but dammit if I haven't read and seen things that have convinced me that sometimes innocent people get put away and horrible, horrible things happen to them.
So the opening scenes of Desperation which show a sheriff who is seemingly innocent had me gripped and on the edge of my seat already. The characters were tense because of the bizarre way the cop pulls them over and the fact that they do have pot on them. This is probably my favorite part of the book but that does not mean it is the only good part.
King's use of repetition of the senses here really astounded me. I never knew how powerful repetition could be until I read this book and this scene and I begin to sweat as hard as I thought the characters were. As their paranoia grew I could feel my own paranoia growing until I wanted to shout at the book "Are you a good guy?
