I know almost every person on this planet is familiar with the story, but I want to tell you this: Forget about any movie or TV series you've ever seen and get your hands on a copy of The Dead Zone. It's a book that will warm your heart and then rip it apart. A book that will tell you about finding love and losing it because it was just too good to be true; about the shit life has in store for us and the consequences we have to deal with; about getting a great 'power' and accepting the responsibility this curse power brings. All of that brought to you by Stephen King at his best--an amazing storyteller with a superb character-developing skill.
Even though I read it almost ten years ago, The Dead Zone is by far my favoriteStephen King book. I highly recommend it.
