Chaos Walking is the newest addition to the huge stable of Stephen King novels. In this one, we find our man-sized protagonist, Todd, in a whole new milieu. He's been raised to think the Spackle caused the nuclear war, decimated all the girls and unleashed chaos on the rest of the men. Once finding out from some old newspaperman that a local marshal has a missing child, Todd is quickly rushed into a race against time to find the girl and figure out what's really going on.
What comes to mind with a little snowscape for a main character's escape from an insane carnival? Well, there's a reason why they call it a "snowscape," and the first thing you'll notice is that it doesn't look like much. The entire scene is so over-designed that it actually starts to grate after a while. This is understandable though, as the creators have given the new settlers on this planet a very difficult task.
Chaos Walking isn't like most Stephen King novels. It doesn't have a traditional beginning, middle, or end. It's more like a roller coaster ride. It's abrupt, it's unexpected, it's chaotic, all at once. This is good, because it helps to keep the reader's attention, but it can also be too much at the same time. Too much chaos walking could be boring, but the creators manage to make three short stories out of it, leaving us hanging on every word, wondering just where the author ended and started.
One of the best parts of Chaos Walking is the way the author keeps the reader's imagination on an endless jolt as he slowly weaves his way from one locale to another. You know the place you're going to be bad. But then, something else comes up that makes you jump out of your skin and scream for joy. This, in a way, is the essence of horror writing, isn't it? Because, if the reader is not constantly on the edge of his seat, the book may become tiring too soon.
The final third book in the series, Chaos Walking, is also known as The Long Walk Home. I'm afraid I'll have to disappoint you, dear readers, as the third book in this fantastic series does not actually talk about the end of the trilogy. Instead, it picks up right where the second novel left off, and from there, picks up pace again.
Based on the main article posted on the official website of the chaos walking franchise, the movie adaptation of Chaos Walking is set to be released sometime in the next two years. The film adaptation of the first novel is reportedly in the works at Universal Studios. The novel has topped many best-sellers worldwide and earned the book a spot on the New York Times best-seller list. The film adaptation will be a huge success worldwide, and the chances are good that it will earn the same sort of sales that Cuarong did.
