firestarter summary

In it, King thanks his own daughter, who mu What I liked most about Firestarter was the bond between a father and his daughter. This sailed up amongst my very favorites of this mans books now and is the first that I actually changed the 5-level rating of following my re-read. Publication date September 29, 1980 Media type Pages 426 Firestarter is a - novel by , first published in September 1980. Lo Peor: Demasiado tedioso, casi casi al punto de ser aburrido. In Rainbird's case, his lack of conscience just let him see through the bullshit and get to the core of the individual. Her father Andy David Keith has the ability to create mental domination over others. Seriously there's such a brilliant cast of characters here! However, if I'm honest, I found Andy's psychic abilities more interesting than Charlie's, so I really enjoyed those parts where Andy could show what he's capable of even if it was detrimental to his own health - but again, this just perfectly demonstrates his paternal love for Charlie.

firestarter summary

The McGee's have tried to teach their daughter to control her gift, but controlling any child's temper tantrum is challenging. There are twists throughout the book that I didn't see coming so I think you should give it a try, especially if you like Stephen King. The characters of John Rainbird and Cap Hollister were perfect for the regimental bad guy and psychopath with a cunning plan, when Cap was pushed into aiding and abetting the escape attempt by Andy McGee it all just fell into place almost with a satisfying click of the fingers. But of course, the two stories differ greatly. Firestarter was one of the first group of King books I ever read. But the novel is well written, and a great case in character study.

firestarter summary

He also meets the woman that would later become his wife, Victoria, and during the trial, they both realize they can communicate with out speaking. I'm giving this three out of five stars because the first half was five star quality, and of course, the characters were as well. Along with a knack for intuition, Charlie's talent is pyrokinesis. The first few chapters are riddled with intriguing flashbacks to fill the reader in on current day situations and up the desperation of the protagonists plight. According to most people, he succeeded in creating a well-developed, interesting story keeping its readers on the edge of their seats and making them turn the pages. I don't even know how Fabian and I got through this.

Firestarter by Stephen King

firestarter summary

Adventurous running, which manages to keep you on your toes and galloping through book pages towards the end, and exasperating running - which is simply enervative and very vexatious. But the second half dragged on, and on, and on, and it was difficult for me to continue on, even though I managed to finish the book. By now you'd have guessed that Andy and Charlie adopted the latter. This is King writing at his very best. Charlie then kills Rainbird and cries at her father's wound. He offers to play Good Cop, acting the role of a janitor and gaining Charlie's trust, one monster screwed over by The Shop to another. Charlie cooperates with her mother's killers because her father is still in danger.

Ghost Whisperer (S04E01): Firestarter Summary

firestarter summary

However, most people seem to have enjoyed this book way more than I did, so maybe Anne and I both simply read this wrong and you, dear reader, would miss an awesome book if you trust our negative reviews. King uses very descriptive words to describe almost every scene. I was happy to see that even though she had this immense power and could do virtually anything she wanted, she still loved and tried to obey her father. It was also adapted into a film in 1984 starring Drew Barrymore. Then king slows things down to a slow but steady simmer during the winter in Vermont so subtly set-up the end-game at the Shop headquarters, where the plot steadily rises to a boil and climactic ending. And as disgusting as he was, for the most part, he was dead-on in his assessment of her. Κάλλιο αργά παρά ποτέ και μπράβο στις εκδόσεις Κλειδάριθμος που επιτέλους το έφεραν και στην Ελλάδα, δίνοντάς μας έτσι την ευκαιρία να απολαύσουμε ένα πραγματικά πολύ δυνατό μυθιστόρημα, ένα θρίλερ σκέτο.

firestarter summary

I honestly don't have much to say about this book, for lack of inspiration, and like I said before, I would've dumped this before I even got to the next running scene if not for Fabian who wouldn't let us quit. Creo que podria definirse más bien como uno de conspiración gubernamental. Can this power and the love of her father stop this sinister agency before all hell breaks loose? I don't think the scariest thing about this book is the fact that this tiny kid has the power to potentially crack the Earth in half. To image a world wherein Charlie McGee exists is a scary thought indeed. And it's not the fear of simply being captured. Lancaster's father, , was originally going to portray Captain Hollister, but had to withdraw following heart surgery, instead Martin Sheen replaces Burt. While I was sitting there watching the movie, I became bored.

Detailed Review Summary of Firestarter by Stephen King

firestarter summary

It is a medium sized book that definitely grabs and demands your full attention. Δεν ξέρω, το βιβλίο με ενθουσίασε. There are some parts of this one I'll remember for a long time. Con un comienzo intrépido que en lugar de ser una prueba de lo bueno que resultaría el libro fue todo lo contrario. This was a pretty good read. Σε άλλους μπορεί να φανεί μονότονο και όχι ιδιαίτερα πρωτότυπο, σε άλλους τίποτα το ιδιαίτερο ή το αξιοσημείωτο. What I liked most about Firestarter was the bond between a father and his daughter.

I loved the whole idea of the story. The pacing was concrete as well. Firestarter is the 1984 adaptation of the popular pyrokinetic Stephen King potboiler, directed by Mark L. The film was directed by , and stars , , and. Sensing Charlie is in danger, Andy pulls himself together and plots an escape. The book has a central flaw I'll get to later.
