Revival by Stephen King

 “Once upon a time, I would have said we choose our paths at random: this happened, then that, hence the other. Now I know better. There are forces.”
Stephen King,  Revival

Revival is an excellent read, a real page turner. It is essentially about the lives of two characters who's lives cross path over and over again. There are a lot of minor characters that play major roles but the majority of the book is about Jamie Morton and Charles Jacob.

Jamie is only six years old when he meets, Charles Jacob. Jacob's is the new minster in town, he has a beautiful wife and young son. They become  part of the community rather quickly until a tragic and rather graphic accident takes place irreversibly changing the lives of Jacobs and those with whom he has encounters with. Jamie being the main person of interest in, Jacobs oddly disturbing life.

 I don't want to reveal anymore of the plot, it is something you had to discover on your own. I long ago quite reading the synopsis of book by my favorite authors and implore you do to the same. It adds an entirely new dynamic to the reading experience when you don't know what your getting.

Set a few hours or days aside because once you start reading this book, you won't want to put it down!

Grade: A+
