Elevation

Stephen King’s latest book is a novella of just 132 pages. Whilst I love his doorsteps, I often think he is at his best with shorter novels and short stories. Elevation is the tale of an ordinary man who has something extraordinary happen to him, as often is the case in King’s books. Scott starts to lose weight rapidly - the scales show a 2-3lb loss every day but his size and frame and importantly, his clothes don’t change. He realises that the loss isn’t going to slow down and the book is his reckoning with “zero day”. 

 

Yes, I am a die hard King fan so I am always going to be a bit biased about his books, but this is truly a lovely story. I finished it on the train and I struggled to keep my emotions in check.
