I was probably 12 at the time — likely too young to be reading this, but, hey, I did it anyway! View all 8 comments. The Running Man by Richard Bachman 2 star ratings Yet, the reality is that the cards are stacked against us, just as the odds were always stacked against Ben Richards in The Running Man. The cynical part of me kept wondering how people could trust their promises to pay and not rig the gugitivo. A 5 star read for me! Refresh and try again.

The fact is that this novel inspired the movie of the same name. And the fact is that I am one of the few that loved that movie. Therefore, I immediately buy the novel. No matter, I bought it The concept of reality shows is exacerbated, and actual life live turns into death live in the future that King presents us.
Future in which there are sadistic TV prize contests, such as "Treadmill to Bucks", where the unfortunate individuals usually with cardiac disease must answer some questions as they run on a rotating cylinder. But the crown jewel of the prize contests on live TV is the "The Running Man", a manhunt that practically pushes you against everyone, against the world. Need to hide.
Prestigious hotels, decadent motels, sewer. One place as good as the next, the important thing is that you never stop in the same place for more than one day.
Hell of a ending, direct, essential, minimal. Hell of a future. Quindi compro immediatamente il libro. Stephen King lo ha scritto in fase "Bachman", forse si tratta di un libro minore. Non importa, lo compro. E meno male: minore il caspito!! Futuro in cui vi sono sadiche trasmissioni TV a premi, come "Il macinadollari", dove i malcapitati tendenzialmente cardiopatici devono rispondere a delle domande mentre corrono su di un cilindro rotante.
Bisogna nascondersi. Alberghi, motel decadenti, fogne. Altrimenti sei fottuto. Gran bel finale, diretto, essenziale, minimale. Gran bel futuro. Voto: 8.
