The Long Walk
In this #1 national bestseller, ?master storyteller? (Houston Chronicle) Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, tells the tale of the contestants of a grueling walking competition where there can only be one winner-the one that survives.?I give my congratulations to the winner among your number, and my acknowledgements of valor to the losers.? Against the wishes of his mother, sixteen-year-old Ray Garraty is about to compete in the annual grueling match of stamina and wits known as The Long Walk. One hundred boys must keep a steady pace of four miles per hour without ever stopping...with the winner being awarded ?The Prize?-anything he wants for the rest of his life. But, as part of this national tournament that sweeps through a dystopian America year after year, there are some harsh rules that Garraty and ninety-nine others must adhere to in order to beat out the rest. There is no finish line-the winner is the last man standing. Contestants cannot receive any outside aid whatsoever. Slow down under the speed limit and you?re given a warning. Three warnings and you?re out of the game-permanently....About the AuthorStephen King is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers.
