    Working the third shift I sleep weird hours. Sometime during the day.Sometime at night. So when CD says they have a big announcement I just wait to go to sleep. Now I have been a part of the CD family for so long that I get early announcements on a lot of things. Another reason to be a part of the cdcc.

    Well, if I was in charge of picking a new s/l for King, I'd probably do Pet Sematary, Duma Key, or Lisey's Story. Cell was a good read, but seemed to lose steam at the end for me. I'm not the biggest King fan in the world so for me to drop the amount of money on what his s/l editions command, it would have to be on one of his books I really like.

    That's because it didn't end.

    It ended, just not the wat you wanted it to.

    But the ending was the best part of the book for me.

    Yeah, King's point in the novel seemed to be that mankind needs to reboot it's thinking about certain topics. His job was simply to get us to the reboot stage. Where we go from there is up to us.

    Where we go from there is up to us is the same as not having an ending....it literally means its OPEN-ENDED thus no ending. Anyway it pissed me off. Although at the same time zombie shit never ends except when everyone dies.

    I am with Squire on this one. The ending of Cell made the book. I also think they will create a more definitive ending for the movie, just as they did for Shawshank Redemption.

    Although I loved the ending of Cell, definitive endings work better on screen. The Shawshank Redemption is a very good example of this, because the ending that was produced gave a very satisfying conclusion to the movie.

    This would make a fantastic limited. I can picture a bunch of pretty sweet art work possibilities even off the top of my head. This is one of my favourite King reads.

    I love open-ended conclusions for some books AND movies. Obviously if I want to watch something mindless I'd rather have a conclusion, but I like when I am able to use my own imagination to form a conclusion. I would assume the movie of Cell will have more of a defined conclusion, and most likely that will translate better to the screen for that movie

    My problem with Cell wasn't so much with the open-ending, but what I felt was a rather lackluster third act. There was a tonal shift that occurred after a character's death that I felt the book couldn't recover from. I thought the actual ending of the book worked fine. I have no problem with open-endings as long as they are pulled off properly.

    Sock Monkey,

    Don't take this the wrong way, but you might want to use Spoiler Tags around your references to The Shawshank Redemption.

    I fixed it. That said though on a movie / book that old I'm not really sure spoiler tags are necessary.

    I would not have wrapped it with a spoiler since I would everyone had read the story and watched the movie by now. With that said
