A signal transmitted by cell phone turns all who hear it into murderous maniacs. Nowhere is safe, least of all the streets, but Clay, Cells main character, must brave them if he is to see his son again.
King has written a solid piece here with a refreshing slant on the zombie apocalypse theme. The characters are believable throughout and I even found myself caring about the fate of a few of them. Consequentially there were some genuinely shocking moments.
I don’t get a chance to read a huge amount of fiction these days and I honestly feel that I didn’t waste my time with Cell.
4 out of 5.
