And flipped through the pages wafting to my nostrils old dust motes caught within the yellowed pages that have traveled with me from place to place over the years then I started to read the first story Rage The title alone was enough to get me hyped I mean c mon t s not like I didn t know that this was going to be a story I would be affected by one way or another I kept reading Pretty soon my freshman year n college came back to me I had just finished a geology test before heading nto the week of finals and was meandering my way across campus Einblicke in that whimsical manner one does after spilling their brains out on some problem or essay when one of my friendsntercepted me She was talking a mile a minute telling me that there was a shooting at a high school named Columbine I can honestly tell you I was little affected by her words I didn t have any family or friends Fated: Blood and Redemption in Colorado and I still didn t have anydea as to what all happened Back n my dorm before turning on the television the hallways to my room buzzed with the news Smalls groups of huddled conspirators whispered to each other as f talking aloud about what happened would doom their high school or worse our university When I finally sat and listened to the news report the Wir möchten auch vom Arno-Schmidt-Jahr profitieren information about the two killers washed over me asf I was n some weird dream Why did they do this How could they do this The answers were provided by Talking Heads and their belief that the youth of the day had checked out and given the finger to all and every authority ncluding the one connected to the sanctity of life Time has passed School shootings still continue And I realize that those Talking Heads didn t understand one damn thing about being young confused or scared about making a mistake All they wanted to do was place the blame on Marilyn Manson and Stephen King and video games BULLSHIT Their remarks are too convenient nestled with too pretty of a bow I understand for the first time since walking across campus that fateful day that one can only choose what to do when exposed to violence This may not be physical violence t might be emotional or mental or spiritual And that s what King was saying n this short novella We have a choice with every act of violence committed against us Pardon my soapbox for a bit Take Christianity for The Powers That Be: Global Energy for the Twenty-first Century and Beyond instance those of you who are not Christians please feel free tonsert your choice of religion deity or belief we are taught that to err s human but to forgive s divine We are expected to live by the New Testament not the Old one When lashed out against Tomatoland: How Modern Industrial Agriculture Destroyed Our Most Alluring Fruit its mperative to check one s emotions To answer with violence s just plain silly Okay I m ramblingthe point s things can t take the place of personal responsibility Art doesn t make a suitable excuse Music doesn t hypnotize you to place a baby n an oven Video games can t make you go out and rob a 7 11 or kill hookers That Reitergayschichten I is all FAKE What aren t fake are the emotions andnsecurities of our youth If you are a parent hug your child kiss them and tell them you love them But most of all LISTEN TO THEM If you don t have kids but know of young ones that need help HELP THEM This s a fucked up world we live n But US Helicopter Pilot in Vietnam it can also be a wonderful place I m not saying we all need to hold hands and sing kumbaya that would be even a fucked up world but we can stop the precipitation of violence Think aboutt Maybe I made a point Maybe not Regardless this Harry's Bar: The Life Times of the Legendary Venice Landmark is for you Mr King I thinkt a shame that you took this novella out of print It s not your job to be a parent to others kids Your job s to be a storyteller And that you have done wonderfully VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Finally I ve read this elusive that you have done wonderfully VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Finally I ve read this elusive first thought I had after reading this was It s a shame this book s no longer わたしに××しなさい! 3 [Watashi ni xx Shinasai! 3] in printThe reasont was removed from print by reuest from Stephen King himself German at a Glance: Phrase Book Dictionary for Travelers is because the novel was foundn the locker of Michael Carneal a bullied boy who opened fire on students at Heath High School Blühende Heide in 1997 Under the assumption that the book partlynspired the school shooting the book was pulled from printGiven the sensitive nature of the novel I can certainly understand King s decision to stop Alchemy and Arcana: an Urban Fantasy Novella Collection its print However after I read the novel I was very surprised to findt was nothing I had expected Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath it to be In all honesty I ve read a lot fiction that remainsn print that has violent depictions of gun violence Watching Dallas: Soap Opera and the Melodramatic Imagination in schools than was displayedn Rage Forgive me George V's Children if that comes off asnsensitive I n no way want to play down the sheer terror and trauma that comes from any violence n a school I simply mean that Rage doesn t deal with as much forward and utterly gruesome violence as some other books out there In fact many of King s characters n his other novels have been far violent than Charlie was n Rage What I read was a book that dissects a troubled teenage boy s mind The entire novel Brotherhood of Thieves: The Wardens is a psychoanalysisnto what caused this boy to hold his entire class hostage at gunpoint And what we are told by the characters but mainly by Charlie himself How to Become an It Architect is that he grew upn a violent home and was bullied at school TextbookWhat really troubled me not Shaking Behind the Microphone: Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking in a bothersome way butn such a way that I knew this book was hitting an emotional chord n me Was The Way The the way the reacted to being held hostage They were for want of a better word blas about the situation At times they were uite well humoured and seemed almost to enjoy being there Only n a few Garou Saga: Who's Who Werewolves instances did they become jumpy or frightened Thiss a curious juxtaposition from what we often see n real life hostage situations where the hostages are extremely frightened to the point of hysteria begging for their lives or screaming and trembling uncontrollably It creates this gigantic spotlight on the children n that classroom and forces us to observe their behaviour And I think this contrast s why the novel s so powerful It draws a clear line between Charlie and the other children between troubled young man and the people who didn t ask to be held hostage But Complete Guide to the TOPIK (advanced) interestingly enough I found myself wondering who exactlys the victim n all thisThis novel s short and You Come to Yokum in true King Bachman fashion you can t help but keep turning the pages until the end I know this books hard to come by but t was well worth my months long search for a copy From a purely entertainment standpoint this s a must read Zbogom, dragi Krleža if you re a King fan I think theres a lot that can be learned from Rage and books of a similar nature Firesoul in why violencen schools happens Or to look at Jonathan Franzen: The Comedy of Rage it broadly we can learn why and how violent behaviourn adolescents develops You Are the Rain in the first place It gives us a windownto the mental health of youth Cycle Style in particular youth that have been bullied Andt may provide us with answers on how to act before Artscroll Children's Siddur its too late for everyoneIn defence of Richard Bachman and Rage I don t think the book created a monster n Carneal n 1997 I think the tendencies were there Iron Cross in a boy who had gone through the ringer and Rage may have been the final straw for himn a overlong delayed cry for helpTo sum up this book deserves to be back Zachary's Virgin in print I thinkt s particularly Pfaueninsel important to haven bookstores at this day and age This s a fantastic novelOnwar.

Find all of my reviews at was a super shorty so there sn t a whole lot to say without giving the entire thing away I ll just leave t as This I said pleasantly s known as getting t on Yep Ol Charlie s having a bit of a shit day and to top t all off It probably says something for the state of the universe or at least the state of my psyche that this book left me with such a meh reaction I d blame t on the fact that t was written by Richard Bachman and not King but that argument doesn t fly since The Long Walk s one of my favorite stories For Rage being a book that was pulled from printing by King due to ts disturbing nature I didn t find Time Capsule it to be all that disturbing I appreciated horrible choice of words there so forgive me the spin on the deranged student but for me the execution was a failure I wasn tnvested Hot Under the Collar in Charlie orn any of his classmates and when you re dealing with a hostage situation Horses it s kind ofmportant to route for someone be Goblin King it the bad guy or the good guys Bottom lines I was left feeling like this You are disturbed Charlie And like this My friend Councillor does a much better job explaining why this story didn t uite live up to expectations and even uses words The Luthier's Apprentice instead of pictures to do the talking Holy hell I had no clue what I was gettingnto with this one I am a SK lover and King s earlier Richard Bachman books are some of my favorites read The Long Walk and The Running Man Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California if you haven t I happened upon this one rather randomly and couldn t stop readingt It s out of print for reasons that will be absolutely clear by the time you are done reading the next paragraph SK and his publisher both agreed that t was for the betterWritten Villa Mendl: Leben und Schicksal der Ankerbrot-Erbin Bettina Mendl in 1977 Rage starts of with a bang punntended when Charlie Decker gets called to the office mouths off lights his locker on fire then shoots two teachers He holds his entire class hostage and the rest of the book s basically a psychotherapy session wherein he and his classmates tell stories of times when they got t on no sexual connotation Are we all a little bit crazy I have no clue The shared experience of the hostage situation was weirdbut not unrealistic It Schlechter Sex 2 is amazing to see how people reactn stressful situations I mean there New Jewish Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre is a body lyingn the room and everyone s basically shooting the shit but I could buy t and that The Disability Studies Reader is whats kind of scary It s that moment when everything Sword and Sorceress 24 is so serious and you ve gone beyond the seriousness to some sort of relaxation King writes When you re five and you hurt you make a big noise unto the world At ten you whimper But by the time you make fifteen you begin to eat the poisoned apples that grow on your ownnner tree of painYou bleed on the nside God how sad s t that When I saw the movie Se7en I remember thinking t was crazy to The Riptide Ultra-Glide imagine a government keeping tabs on what people are checking out at the library Thiss the type of book that would be on those hypothetical lists hypothetical There are at least two nstances of teenagers taking guns to school and holding their classmates hostage after reading this book Do I think t Mardi Gras is dangerous No not any so than all the other crap we are bombarded with daily Impressionable teenagers will find theirnspiration from somewhere else And this book Ghetto is of a commentary on how parents affect their children for better or worse The takeaway should be not to exhibit violencen school but to keep lines of communication open not be a shitty parent and to treat your classmates like human beings s this even possible n high schoolStephen King s the ultimate storyteller I swear on nearly every page I m either chuckling underlining or completely aghast He s like that friend that we all have who can tell a story about something completely benign and have you rolling on the floor with laughter or make you cry just by recounting the plot of a sad movie I m sad that people won t get the chance to read this book If you can stomach t definitely find read this book If you can stomach t definitely find copy After thinking a lot about how to rate and review Rage the first novel Stephen King published under his pseudonym Richard Bachman I still have no clue what to think of this really short novel Rage s not available any as King decided to take t off the market since Ghost Stories of Washington it was feared the novel wouldnspire people to run amok and due to the socially relevant and American Espionage and the Soviet Target interesting subject this novel deals with I was verynterested Luxuspreissetzung in Der Theorie Und Implikationen F�r Die Praxis in reading the actual text But after finishingt this morning all the mpressions the novel leaves n my thoughts consist of disappointment The I think about t the does the opinion that King utterly failed to depict the novel s core n his work become manifest The Thinking Beekeeper: A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives in my considerationsIt s about Charlie Decker the spree killer himself who kills his teachern school and then takes several hostages Urban Legend Detectives Case 4: The Samejima Case in the aftermath of this escalation King spends a lot of timenside Charlie s head exploring his thoughts his nner turmoil and his plagued past Although his character s well developed his deeds themselves remain unexplained which may be the most significant factor for why I wasn t able to get Mituri, rituri, simboluri în societatea contemporană into the story Spree killers may have been victimsn their past but they become perpetrators the moment they commit their crimes and Charlie s crime Kyoko Karasuma Bd. 5 is a horrible one however King depicts him as the victim during the entire course of the story not only by telling the book from his first person point of view but also by making the hostage taking feel like an afternoon coffee party Some scenes appeared dubious and unrealistic to me whilen addition King s writing talents are not performed at their best n this novel Apart from that I thought Rage shares a lot of similarities with Carrie King s first published
novel which waswhich was to nvestigateFinally what The Huguenot Sword is left to be said about Rage Its no huge loss to the world of literature that Poetic Machinations: Allegory, Surrealism, and Postmodern Poetic Form itsn t officially available any and although In the Shadow of Empires it deals with a sociallymportant subject King leads the story nto absurdism 25 stars rounded down to 2 stars for the lack of explanations of the protagonist s actionsWhy s this book shelved as horror by 412 users Had The 101 Dalmatians it been written by any random authort would have been shelved anything but that In my opinion Rage s have been shelved anything but that In my opinion Rage s thriller with dramatic components but does not belong The Story of the Orchestra into the section of King books meant to be horror novels It has been conclusively proved that theres no gravity the earth just sucksRage was a book before Only Say the Word it s time One of King s earliest books and the first relea Sad and FrighteningRAGEs the story of a disturbed childwho becomes a disturbed teenwho acts out on his frustrations by taking a hand gun to school his senior year taking the life of his algebra teacher and holding his class hostage for several hours no spoiler hereIn the midst of all the chaos keeping school officials and police at bay Charlie shares a few tales of his abusive home life his encounters with bullies a sex episode and strongly reuests his captives disclose embarrassing secrets about themselves too All are cooperativeexcept oneA good portion of this short read Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge is dedicated to Charlie discussing his feelings and regrets but be prepared for a few shockers along the wayRAGEs Un adolescente al borde de la locura toma veinticuatro rehenes en un colegio Los ntentos de encontrar una salida pacífica por parte del profesorado y la policía resultan vanos Mientras lo. ,
Ne of Stephen King s earliest novels written under pen name Richard Bachman a work he has pulled from the market due to real time events somewhat resembling the storyline He has also excluded RAGE from new editions of The Bachman Books Highly recommend reading GUNS as a follow up to RAGE as t fully details the reasoning behind his decision God I hated this book RAGEwe ve all experienced t whether bumper to bumper on the roads nteracting with ass stains at work or railing against the evils of beachfront development Here Stephen King explores the darkest aspect of this emotion and strikes a chord that can be felt by anyone who remembers the awkwardness the Talking Cures and Placebo Effects insecurity the angernducing turbulence of being a teenager King taps a mighty strong vein n this one Originally entitled Getting It On this early effort of the master while less polished and containing technical flaws than his later work s one of his most visceral and striking psychological stories This The Bewitched Wolf is Catchern the Rye meets American Psycho and t s made all the eerie by the echoes and reflections of real life high school shootings that this story Voodoo Woman ( New Orleans Mysteries is sure to conjuren the mind of the reader PLOT SUMMARYA deeply troubled high school senior Charlie Decker shoots and kills two teachers and takes his Algebra class hostage This all happens faster than you can say Holy Shit Stephen King wrote this gripping evocative story while he was n High SchoolHigh Schoolthat over abundantly talented bastard This just sets the stage for the real drama to come While the police surround the building and make unsuccessful attempts to negotiate with Charlie the classroom becomes a tense angry crucible n which dark secrets and memories of betrayals and painful persecutions are shared by Charlie and his hostages See Charlie believes that everyone has bad secrets that build up and gnaw at you until you eventually decide to get Last Chance Hero it on And all that weirdnesssn t just going on outside It s Officer Buckle and Gloria in you too right now growingn the dark like magic mushrooms Call Antolog�a Patri�tica it the Thingn the Cellar Call Political Theory: An Introduction it the Blow Lunch Factor Callt the Loony Tunes File I think of Two Adventures of Sherlock Holmes it as my private dinosaur huge slimy and mindless stumbling aroundn the stinking swamp of my subconscious never finding a tarpit big enough to hold t Initially the confessions of Charlie s classmates are only partially voluntary However as the day goes on the atmosphere thickens and morphs until a form of group mind takes hold Suddenly the classroom s a like a dark after hours episode of Dr Phil and the confession begin to come fast and furiousand the rage builds For his part Charlie through a series of flashback tells the reader and his classmates about the events that led to him standing before them a violent rage filled double murderer All of this leads up to an exceptional ending that will stick with you THOUGHTSThis This Pagan Heaven is tough stuff full of raw unfiltered anger and descriptions of the kinds of casual ruthlessness that teenagers are subjected to from their parents their peers and even themselves Charlies a hold nothing back narrator and his descriptions of events are unvarnished and somewhat bizarre since he Paladin's Redemption is explaining events as he saw them not necessarily as the actually occurred Thiss a portrait of a troubled child exploding against the njustices both real and magined to which he feels he s been subjected It Zum Ruhme Reifer Geister: Eine Flaschenpost Mit Brennrezepten Wunderwassern Und Beschwingten Versen Von Babylon Bis Heute (German Edition) is also like all of King s novels addictively readable Despite being one of his first works King s natural effortless storytelling abilitys on full display It s amazing to me that a high school student could so easily engage readers and keep them turning the pages n need of knowing what happens next The man s gifted like few others Dreamsnake in that department Finally the ending If I had one gripe about some of King s novelst s that his endings are letdowns from the slow creeping horror of the set up There s a sense of letdown and even disappointment Not so here The ending of this story Dark Water: A Siren Novel is sublime and I would arguets best feature The last 20 pages are positively haunting and reminded me of a cross between Lord of the Flies and The Wicker Man I m going to leave you with a uote that I think expresses the tone of the story very well and also provides Muse insightnto Charlie s character The school psychiatrist who Charlie hates Silence is coming to try and talk him down and Charlie gives you his thoughts on the man s profession A man with a headful of sharp pryingnstruments A mind fucker a head stud That s what a shrink Dr. Koto Vol. 9 is for my friends and neighbors their jobs to fuck the mentally disturbed and make them pregnant with sanity It s a bull s job and they go to school to learn how and all their courses are variations on a theme Slipping It to the Psychos for Fun and Profit Mostly Profit And Sworn Sword: A Free Preview if you find yourself someday lying on that great analyst s couch where so many have lain before you I d ask you to remember one thing When you get sanity by stud the child always looks like the father And they have a very high suicide rate But they get you lonely and ready to cry they get you ready to tosst all over f they will just promise to go away for a while What do we have What do we really have Minds like terrified fat men begging the eyes that look up n the bus terminal or the restaurant and threaten to meet ours to look back down uninterested We lie awake and picture ourselves n white hats of varying shapes There s no maidenhead too tough to withstand the seasoned dork of modern psychiatry But maybe that s okay Maybe now they would play my game all those shysters and whores 40 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Charlie Decker takes a room full of his classmates hostage Will any of them walk out aliveIn this Bachman book Holden Caulfield Takes The Breakfast Club Hostage With A Pistol At Least the Breakfast Club hostage with a pistol At least s what the book feels like to meRage s a really uick read short and to the point It s also not that great King can say he wanted Modern French Culinary Art -The Pellaprat of the 20th Century it out of print because of all the school shootingsn the last couple decades but I have to wonder f uality wasn t also a contributing factorCharlie Decker s a bit of a outcast and has a whole dresser drawer full of ssues His classmates seemingly normal aren t without problems themselves John Hughes at gunpoint s a good way to describe most of what goes on Escaping the Delta: Robert Johnson and the Invention of the Blues in the book If snipers were watching the windows of the libraryn the Breakfast Club Rage s probably what the result would be likeI don t have a lot to say about this one The ending was unexpected I ll give BachmanKing that Other than that I m glad t was short 2 stars I hope this doesn t lead to Stephen was short 2 stars I hope this doesn t lead to Stephen rejecting my friend reuest Lately I ve been wondering about why violence seems to breed so freely Cabal in the United States I don t have an answer by the way Everywhere I seem to look theres something violent being portrayed books movies music art heck even CNN Phases of War Crimes Trials of WWII is going to do a new segment on Cold Cases that they have deemed sonteresting that further exploration s needed Tupac and Biggie here s your chance to spin a few rhymesAnyway I was sitting n my basement perusing my collection of books wondering what to read next when The Bachman Books caught my eye I took Young Junius it down from the shelf.
