About the Edition

Billy Halleck, good husband, loving father, is both beneficiary and victim of the American Good Life: he has an expensive home, a nice family, and a rewarding career as a lawyer...but he is also fifty pounds overweight and, as his doctor keeps reminding him, edging into heart attack country.

Then, in a moment of carelessness, Billy sideswipes an old gypsy woman as she is crossing the street--and her ancient father passes a bizarre and terrible judgement on him.

"Thinner," the old gypsy man whispers, and caresses his cheek, like a lover. Just one word...but six weeks later and ninety-three pounds lighter, Billy Halleck is more than worried. He"s terrified. And desperate enough for one last gamble...that will lead him to a nightmare showdown with the forces of evil melting his flesh away. And away. And away...

This experience is drawn out Thinner book film, and Billy suffers nightmares and setbacks before he eventually locates them. Billy grills the judge's wife, who tells him that Lempke also touched the judge, and whispered "lizard". Particularly wonderful is how the novel finally resolves these issues. And then, in the novel's final moments, Halleck cuts himself a slice: a gesture that isn't as selfless as it maybe appears.

To coin a phrase. Richard Bachman is a pseudonym for the name of the Stephen King. Thinner book book was written by Stephen King! Lemke tells Billy that he will never take off the curse, so Thinner book resorts to drastic measures, where he has his friend, Richie "The Hammer" Ginelli, an underground mobster, manage to find the gypsies again, and Richie torments the gypsies until Lemke finally agrees to talk to Billy and remove the curse. So, the gypsy man bakes a pie using some of Halleck's blood which will pass on the curse to whoever eats it. At Hopley's funeral, Billy decides to leave town to find the traveling carnival and attempt to convince Lempke to take the curse off.

Wracked with Thinner book, Billy decides to commit suicide by eating a piece of the pie as well. She's seventy, seventy-five, half-blind, maybe she only steps out too quick because Thinner book wants to get back to her place before she wets herself, and old bones break easy, old bones are like glass, and you hang around thinking maybe this once, just this once, there's going to be a little justice He is brought to trial, but is acquitted thanks to his high connections, who fake evidence. But maybe I'm going soft, because now I wonder whether there wasn't a way of redeeming him.

A suspicious bookstore clerk in Washington, D. He is brought to Thinner book, but is acquitted thanks to his high connections, who fake evidence. An exhausted Billy falls asleep, where Lempke gives Billy a pie and cuts his hand, dripping lots of blood with the "curse inside" into the pie.

He steps close to Halleck and strokes his cheek, whispering "thinner. The judge starts growing lizard scales and Thinner book on his body, and the police officer gets a disturbingly horrific case of Thinner book. After the accident, he doesn't deliberately use his connections to get him out of trouble, but he does nothing to dissuade them either.

It's hard for me to choose a favorite from the Bachman books, but I can safely say that Thinner is a perfect closure to a career that ended much too soon. He goes home and puts the pie away, believing that his daughter is spending the night at a friend's Thinner book.

And how it happened, it happened due to his wife. Fans applaud it as one of King's best novels. But before it: a novel that summed up the rest of King's Bachman-attributed output, while Thinner book in just enough evidence of Thinner book real author to raise suspicions. The town police chief who Thinner book soft-pedal the charges against Billy is cursed with a horrifying case of acne.

Halleck believes Lemke lacks a particular point of knowledge about the crime; yet, we learn that he, in fact, does Thinner book. The curse causes Billy to lose weight rapidly, regardless of how much he eats.

Realizing that both of them are now doomed, he cuts a slice for himself so that he can join them in death. Billy's guilt compels him to "die with dignity" and ends up having to take Lempke's offer to eat a piece as well. When Billy gets home, he sees that a local doctor named Mike Houston is leaving.

Anti-Villain : Taduz Lemke places a curse on the man responsible for his daughter's death, as well as the two men who helped cover it up.

The sham of a trial is glossed over quickly, and the moment when the curse is given is agonizingly drawn out. Lempke then performs this by stabbing Billy in his wounded hand and mixing his blood with a strawberry pie that he has brought with him. Affably Evil : Richie Ginelli is pretty friendly, if primarily towards Halleck for saving his ass in court.

Granted, his height is never given, but in The New '10s in America his weight wouldn't be commented on quite so drastically. For such a short story, it's surprisingly lagging in the middle. Bangor, who owns the pharmacy outside where the accident happened.

It's slow at first, but then speeds up, and after discovering that the people who have helped him evade justice are similarly tainted with strange scaly skin and acne, no lessHalleck realises that this is a gypsy curse.

Before this point, King had done a good job playing with notions of unlikeable protagonists Carrie; Jack Torrance, certainly; I'd argue that Louis Creed 's selfish actions put him on the wrong side of Nice Guybut Halleck takes things a step further.

He smiles at the camera and says "white doctor from town" as he shuts the door. He couldn't put a foot wrong: bestseller begat bestseller. Indeed, he learns what life is like as a freak, a pariah. Mike the Paladin This is the book that prompted me to say I wouldn't read anymore of King's "Bachman" books.

Till he hits the scale. But when the pounds keep dropping and Billy keeps eating he starts being suspicious. After Billy's disastrous first encounter with the Gypsies, Richie surveys his emaciated friend and immediately concludes that he's been cursed.

Billy invites the doctor inside to share the pie. That's when Billy eats some of the pie himself, overcome with grief and guilt at what he's done.Thinner This Year: A Younger Next Year Book.
