Much like the main character in Thinner, a book King previously wrote dealing with the issue of weight loss, although its protagonist’s suffering was as a result of a curse, Elevation’s main character, Scott Carey is losing weight in rapid pace for an entirely different reason. Unlike Thinner in which the weight is visibly gone, Scott looks overweight even though he’s actually shedding weight and becomes light as a feather.
