Beschreibung

A desperate man attempts to win a reality TV game where the only objective is to stay alive in this #1 national bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman.

"Tomorrow at noon, the hunt begins. Remember his face!"

Ben Richards is a desperate man. With no job, no money, no way out, and a young daughter in need of proper medical attention, he must turn to the only possibility of striking it rich in this near-future dystopian America: participating in the ultra-violent TV programming of the government-sanctioned Games Network. Ben soon finds himself selected as a contestant on the biggest and the best that the Games Network has to offer: "The Running Man,” a no-holds-barred thirty-day struggle to stay alive as public enemy number one, relentlessly hunted by an elite strike force bent on killing him as quickly as possible in front of an audience all-too eager to see that happen. It means a billion dollars in prize money if he can live for the next month. No one has ever survived longer than eight days. But desperation can push a person do things they never thought possible—and Ben Richards is willing to go the distance in this ultimate game of life and death....

Stephen King is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His recent work includes

The Dark Tower, 
It,

Let me just say that this book could easily have a film adaptation. You would think - will he survive those 30 days? Will he die? How long will he survive? But after some time you realizw that the story has all the time unexpectable turns and it also ends that way. It will totally consume you, it will be a need to read it who... Let me just say that this book could easily have a film adaptation. You would think - will he survive those 30 days? Will he die? How long will he survive? But after some time you realizw that the story has all the time unexpectable turns and it also ends that way. It will totally consume you, it will be a need to read it whole in a day or 2 at some point. You'll just be too curious to read only a bit. Totally recommend.
