Weight. I love to read Stephen King’s weighty novels, and I am also delighted when he tells a story in shorter form because he never bloats his prose. I was thoroughly entertained by his novella titled, Elevation. Set in a familiar King setting, Castle Rock, the protagonist, Scott Carey, looks the same on the outside, but he is losing weight no matter how much he eats. Scott confides his situation with his friend, Doctor Bob Ellis, who measures and weighs Scott but can’t figure out why the weight loss is happening. In the meantime, small town life continues, and King tells a story of hope in which people who feel excluded can become “one of us.” Readers won’t spend too long reading this latest Castle Rock story but may think about it long after the last page is turned.
