The Outsider
The Outsider | Stephen King
An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories. An eleven-year-old boys violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint Citys most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad. As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, Kings propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

A good mix of crime thriller and supernatural phenomenon, The Outsider will really have you at the edge of your seat. The characters developed as each chapters pass by adding more exciting elements as you go.

⭐⭐⭐⭐
#StephenKing is a master story teller. Great mix of characters who fit well into the story and compliment each other.
Not as scary as I expected. There were horror and supernatural elements but not overpowering.
Personally, this genre isn't my favorite. However, it was an enjoyable read.
The ending was a bit surprising and ultimately it wrapped up in a satisfying way.

What on earth? So the Outsider can mind control family members from one touch?? He killed Frank then basically convinced his remaining family to kill themselves with his mind.

Of course the Outsider is hiding in a dark cave where 8 people died. And of course he's waiting with lots of dead animals around. And of course it looks like a human.

These are my 2 The Outsider editions. Maybe the idea of what the outsider is, was not necessarily too creepy for me but the novel has its creepy scenes. I had read only 2 King's novel and I love his character driven style. This novel has some sensitive graphic scenes like child sexual abuse. The end was ok but I really liked enjoyed this novel specially in this season👍3.85⭐️🖤🖤🖤Thank you @BookwormAHN & to my mysterious #AllHollowsReadSwap match

Okay then. #StephenKing decided depicting actual violence in a graphic manner just wasn't enough. Time to add an elderly lady crack a joke about a child's death. This starts dark and just keeps right on going.

In all honesty, I haven‘t read a ton of Stephen King. I‘ve read some of the big ones, and I‘ve seen several movie adaptations. I couldn‘t put this one down—that‘s for sure. His storytelling is still as superb as ever. I just wasn‘t particularly crazy about the material, which is my only reason for the “so-so” rating. He tells it well, though.

Working my first overnight shift in a long time. Slowly making my way through #TheOutsider by #StephenKing. So far, I really like this #murdermystery. I am assuming that the main character may have Dissociative Identity Disorder. I wish the narrator focused more on Coach T than any other character... I really want to get inside this guy's head.
