Interesting story about a troubled highschooler and how he deals with it. ( )

That was intense, like really what did I read?
It was interesting how it all happened.
You wanted to feel for Charlie.
You felt like you could kinda understand him.
Though the ending with Ted, that was disturbing.
It was written well, like any King piece, but it's a little different to what I've read.
It was intense, never a dull moment. ( )

I've recently made it a point to plow through all of King's infamous ""Bachman Books"" and Rage was the first one I got my mitts on. What struck me right out of the gate was how much it read like a Stephen King novel. I can't help but think that if I'd read it when the Bachman ruse was still in full effect, I'd simply think that this Bachman fella was a huge King rip-off. The story itself is awfully short, perhaps too short to really get me pulled in the way King usually does in his standard, lengthy endeavors. It is, however, entertaining and haunting in its own ways, but falls victim to being too short and to leaving me with an ending that didn't seem to fit the rest of the story. Good not great. ( )
