Stephen King has come out with a new book. Its unusually skinny for a King volume, and this might have something to do with the main character!
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.
