    Buddy Read with my pal, The Jeff. 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. Don't get me wrong...the thought of that curls my toes. The genius of this book is that your fear builds with the...

    Pushes and shoves can be a dangerous thing....as can Fear, Pain and Fire! FIRESTARTER had me at the get-go with a super-intense, spring-into-action run as 34 year old Andy McGee and daughter Charlie, 7 flee for their lives with no money and only the clothes on their back. The story alt...

    I can find absolutely nothing bad to say about this book. Firestarter is up there with 'Salem's Lot, The Shining, and It. This one isn't as creep-up-on-you scary as the aforementioned novels, but Firestarter is terrifying. To image a world wherein Charlie McGee exists is a scary though...

    While Firestarter doesn?t quite crack my top five King books, it does come pretty damn close! While I do find the idea of pyrokinesis and telekinesis fascinating and it is no doubt a big part of what makes this book so good, that?s not what makes this book great to me. For me, what...

    What I liked most about Firestarter was the bond between a father and his daughter. The character development is solid in this Stephen King story, especially considering the relationship of Charlie and Andy McGee. Maybe I liked this element of the book because they are the victims, and...

    Next up on my Stephen King quest is Firestarter, again it?s not a review as such but a collection of my thoughts on the book. So there most definitely will be spoilers. Firestarter was originally released in 1980 and was the Kings 6th release not including The Star Invaders. This...

    Firestarter was my second book by Stephen King. Somehow it managed to be a lot worse than Carrie, which was my first. I'll be bluntly honest with you, reading this almost felt like flipping through 520 pages of nothing. I guess it's easy to forgive this disappointment because this book...

    Firestarter has definitely earned a place in my top 10 Kings! This is King writing at his very best. . This book combines some of my very favourite elements of a novel: mental powers such as telekinesis and pyrokinesis; an awesome young female protagonist who isn't perfect/infallibly...

    2.5 Es un libro que empieza con muy buen ritmo, muy rápido, sin embargo, a medida que iba avanzando se me hacía cada vez más pesado. En la mitad ya me era muy tedioso; no lo soportaba. Tiene como 350 páginas sumamente aburridas, repetitivas, pesadas, lentas. Perdón, King, p...

    Sometimes King comes up with the best and most creative ideas. Firestarter was no exception. The whole idea behind a government experiment giving people "abilities" is pure genius. Then, to twist it a bit to make those abilities effect human genetics to give the offspring of those who ...

    8/10 Stephen King is a firm favourite of mine and I?m enjoying working my way through all of his books (although I?ve only done around 1/3 so far!). This one is definitely one of his better offerings but didn?t quite get the upgrade to 5 stars but there is plenty of interestin...

    (Reading Challenge: 10. Un bestseller del New York Times) A cautionary tale about not get involved in paid college experiments, no matter how much you need the money. Si estás en busca de un libro de horror, esto no es lo que buscas. Creo que podria definirse más bien como uno ...

    After reading The Stand and getting a sense of why King was so immensely popular in the eighties, I borrowed my roommate's copy of Firestarter, then The Shining, then Pet Sematary. I definitely liked Firestarter the most. The reason I liked Firestarter--and the movie based, somewhat...

    Firestarter was my second book by Stephen King. Somehow it managed to be a lot worse than Carrie, which was my first. I'll be bluntly honest with you, reading this almost felt like flipping through 520 pages of nothing. I guess it's easy to forgive this disappointment because this book...

    Firestarter has definitely earned a place in my top 10 Kings! This is King writing at his very best. . This book combines some of my very favourite elements of a novel: mental powers such as telekinesis and pyrokinesis; an awesome young female protagonist who isn't perfect/infallibly...

    Firestarter has definitely earned a place in my top 10 Kings! This is King writing at his very best. . This book combines some of my very favourite elements of a novel: mental powers such as telekinesis and pyrokinesis; an awesome young female protagonist who isn't perfect/infallibly...
