Electricity. For those readers who most enjoy fiction that presents a well-told story, the master storyteller Stephen King’s novel, Revival, will be just the right book to read over the course of a few cold winter nights. Two relationships weave through the narrative: the bond between Jamie and Charlie and the tension between religion and science. We meet Jamie as a boy and Charlie as the new minister in town. James becomes a musician and drug addict while the reverend, always interested in harnessing the power of electricity, uses his skills as a means to understanding the afterlife. I was thoroughly entertained by this story and by the skill with which King drew me in.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
