  • "HORROR & GHOST STORIES. Welcome to Desperation. Once a thriving copper mining town in the middle of the Nevada desert, Desperation is now eerily abandoned. It's the last place that travellers like the Carver family, bound for vacation, and writer Johnny Marinville, astride his Harley, would expect to be stopped and charged. But Desperation still has a local cop -- a unique regulator who patrols the wilderness highway. The secrets buried in Desperation are as terrifying as the forces summoned to encounter them. A terrifying transformation is taking place and the travellers will soon discover the true meaning of desperation ..."
  • "Desperation is a deserted mining town in the Nevada desert. It's not a place to visit by choice, and the few unhappy travellers who are forced to stop there witness the familiar- looking town undergo a terrible transformation. In the struggle between good and evil, sacrifice may be the only answer."

  • "Peter und Mary Jackson geraten auf ihrer Fahrt durch Nevada in einen ausweglosen Alptraum: Ein psychopathischer Fremder verschleppt sie in die verlassene Bergarbeiterstaddt Desperation, wo in einem Minenschacht das Monster TAK haust. TAK ernährt sich aus der Lebensenergie von Menschen ... "Kein anderer Schriftsteller der Gegenwart beherrscht so sehr die Klaviatur des Grauens wie Stephen King." DIE WELT Stephen King, 1947 in Portland, Maine, geboren, ist einer der erfolgreichsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller. Schon als Student veröffentlichte er Kurzgeschichten, sein erster Romanerfolg, 'Carrie', erlaubte ihm, sich nur noch dem Schreiben zu widmen. Seitdem hat er weltweit 400 Millionen Bücher in mehr als 40 Sprachen verkauft. Im November 2003 erhielt er den Sonderpreis der National Book Foundation für sein Lebenswerk."

  • "Several cross-country travelers--including a writer, a family on vacation, and a professor and his wife--end up in the little mining town of Desperation, where a crazy policeman and evil forces compel them to fight for their lives."@en
  • "Nevada is mostly a long stretch of desert you cross on the way to somewhere else. And with someone else, if you're lucky ... because it's a scary place. Headed down Route 50 in the brutal summer heat are people who are never going to reach their destinations. Like the Jacksons, a professor and his wife going home to New York City; the Carvers, a Wentworth, Ohio, family bound for a vacation at Lake Tahoe; and aging literary lion Johnny Marinville, inventing a gonzo image for himself astride a 700-pound Harley. A dead cat nailed to a road sign heralds the little mining town of Desperation, a town that seems withered in the shade of a man-made mountain known as the China Pit. But it's worse than that, much worse. Regulating the traffic there is Collie Entragian, an outsize uniformed madman who considers himself the only law west of the Pecos. God forbid you should be missing a license plate or find yourself with a flat tire."
  • "A notice to those who feel that Stephen King has lost his magic touch: Desperation is the genuine goods. The ensemble cast of ordinary Americans thrown together by chance, including a disgruntled alcoholic writer and a child who is wise beyond his years, may be a bit too familiar. But the nearly deserted Nevada mining town with an enormous haunted mine pit and an abandoned movie theatre where the survivors hang out makes for a striking battleground, and the grisly action rarely flags. Best of all, though, are the characters of Tak, the ancient body-hopping evil who emerges from the mine, and of "God"--whom the New York Times describes as "the edgiest creation in Desperation. Remote, isolated, ironic, shrouded behind disguises, perhaps 'another legendary shadow,' this deity forms a sly foil, and an icy mirror, to Tak.""@en

  • "There's something very wrong here, all right, and Entragian is only the surface of it. The secrets embedded in Desperation's landscape, and the evil that infects the town like some viral hot zone, are both awesome and terrifying. But as young David Carver seems to know - though it scares him nearly to death to realize it - so are the forces summoned to combat them."
