Beschreibung

A desperate man attempts to win a reality TV game where the only objective is to stay alive in this #1 national bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman.

It was the ultimate death game in a nightmare future America. The year is 2025 and reality TV has grown to the point where people are willing to wager their lives for a chance at a billion-dollar jackpot. Ben Richards is desperate-he needs money to treat his daughter's illness. His last chance is entering a game show called The Running Man where the goal is to avoid capture by Hunters who are employed to kill him. Surviving this month-long chase is another issue when everyone else on the planet is watching-and willing to turn him in for the reward.

Each night all Americans tune in to watch. So far, the record for survival is only eight days. Can Ben Richards beat the brutal odds, beat the rigged game, beat the entire savage system? He's betting his life that he can…

With an introduction by Stephen King on "The Importance of Being Bachman," The Running Man is a terrifying novel about the eternal fight of good versus evil.

Kritische Rezensionen

  • Originally published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, "The Running Man" is one of the best dystopian novels, often compared in premise to "The Hunger Games" and "Battle Royale." The movie version starring Arnold Schwarzenegger differs greatly, so be sure to read it, too.

    Excellent read I enjoyed it and the movie. Definitely in my top 10 books.
  • (4/5)
    I loved the book but the first chapter is a forward by Stephen king that GIVES AWAY THE ENDING. I know it was a movie, but I never saw the movie. I don't get why it would be the first damn chapter. put it at the end if it's an extra bonus.

    Not his best. Really didn’t enjoy it. Was mediocre at best
  • (5/5)
    Excellent, excellent, excellent. A true King book, sucks you in from the beginning and leaves you breathless with anticipation. One of those books you can't stop thinking about and just have to keep going until you finish it.
  • (5/5)
    So King....great ending. A fun to listen. Go for it.
  • (5/5)
    Amazing story but I love the way it’s narrated and makes this a 5 stars book in terms of content, amazingly great narration and makes the story alive. Love this book so much!
  • (5/5)
    Suspense. Excellent book. Really surprised by this having watched the movie years ago.
  • (3/5)
    The narrator was GREAT! I couldn't get into this book, though. I am big Stephen King/Bachman fan, but this one didn't keep my attention. Hard to finish.
  • (4/5)
    Really good book, and though the intro about Bachman was phenomenal too, it concisely and completely ruins the ending of this book. Listen to the intro after you get through the book!

    I dont usually post a review. I just give my rating. But this narrator deserves a shout out. He was exceptional.
  • (3/5)
    This book was pretty intense. Definitely a lot different than the movie. Not a bad view of what the future could be like. Steven King usually has a pretty dark view of things. And that was the feeling throughout this book despair and darkness. Definitely had some good parts in it though. Worth listening too.

    Fantastic listen but DO NOT LISTEN TO THE INTRODUCTION. The ending of the book is told in there. I didn’t believe it when I first heard but sure enough it was. I don’t think it was meant to be an introduction, just a discussion about the book.

    The audio of this book was messed up and I wasn’t able to listen to it the one star is purely for the audiobook rating on Scribd not the book itself

    All kinda of emotions exude while reading this book. Disgust, fear, anxiety, excitement, triumph and more. It was easy to visualize each scene and actually put yourself in the shoes of Richards. A tale of social upheaval for certain.
