Amazon.com Review An Amazon Best Book of November 2018: The first thing to note about Stephen King’s Elevation is that it is a short book—small and short. This being an online store, it is useful to point out that it will not land on your doorstep with the thud of a typical Stephen King novel. The second thing to note is that it is a fun and surprisingly moving read. When we first meet Scott Carey, he is knocking on the door of a doctor’s condo. Carey discloses to the doctor that he is experiencing a unique condition: he is losing weight but not mass. Every day he is a little lighter and no one can tell the difference. When the doctor points out that this is likely not a condition treatable by modern medicine, Carey appears to concur. So if he is possibly running out of time, what’s next? Scott Carey opts to conduct his life with honor and conviction, and to make the world a better place. Set in King’s fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, the book has very little of the classic King darkness—and it has the feel of a parable. The lesson is that we might actually all be able to get along. Could it be as easy as giving up a little bit of ourselves each day? --Chris Schluep, Amazon Book Review Read more Review “Written in masterly King’s signature translucent style and set in one of his trademark locales, this uncharacteristically glimmering fairy tale calls unabashedly for us to rise above our differences… succinct, magical, timely...charming yet edgy." — Booklist, STARRED review “[An] elegant whisper of a story…[Scott] finds a memorable—and quite beautiful, really—way to depart a town made all the better for his presence.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review “In this surprisingly sweet and quietly melancholy short novel, King weaves an eerie, charming tale of the ways that strange circumstances can bring people together…King’s tender story is perfect for any fan of small towns, magic, and the joys and challenges of doing the right thing.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED review   “Joyful, uplifting, and tinged with sadness.” —Entertainment Weekly "There’s a sweetness that feels like something new for King. It’s heavy out there right now. Here’s something that’s not.” —Gilbert Cruz, The New York Times Book Review “Delightful…What the slim volume lacks in weight, it makes up in pathos...As Carey’s weight approaches zero and his center of gravity shifts, the book lifts off to an unforgettable and deeply moving conclusion.” —Susannah Cahalan, The New York Post “A quick, satisfying read... the sign of a master simply elevating his own legendary game yet again.” —Brian Truitt, USA Today "A slim book about an ordinary man in an extraordinary condition rising above hatred and learning to live with tact and dignity." —Ron Charles, The Washington Post "Stephen King still has the power to surprise his beloved ‘constant readers.' [King is] a storyteller still at the top of his game. Elevation is a magical tale that entertains and manages to say a little something about the state of our culture in 2018.” —Rob Merrill, Associated Press “This is not an offering to be missed. The master is at his impressive best here, and given a chance, it’s a societal story that could actually live up to its title.” —Tom Mayer, The Mountain Times “If you’re one of those book lovers daunted by the sheer heft of some of Stephen King’s work, take heart. His tiny new novel, Elevation, clocks in at 146 pages of a story that at first sounds like a dream come true...What happens when gravity can’t hold you down? The answer comes from King’s mind. Enjoy Elevation for what it is: a story about something impossible happening to an otherwise pretty ordinary man.” —Amanda St. Amand, St. Louis Post-Dispatch "A melancholy, moving fairytale of sorts, about how tolerance, understanding and forgiveness lift all spirits — figuratively and literally. " —Emily Burnham, Bangor Daily News "A welcome antidote to the angry rhetoric of our day." —Michael Berry, The San Francisco Chronicle "The kind of story you could inhale in a leisurely hour... rewarding and philosophically complex piece of work, offering both social critique and a meditation on how our different experiences shape our minds.” —Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic “A resident with a mystical ailment begins spreading exuberance and kindness, the side effects of his unusual affliction…[a] somber, sweet novella.” —People magazine Read more See all Editorial Reviews
