    Buddy Read with my pal, The Jeff.I don't think the scariest thing about this book is the fact that this tiny kid has the power to potentially crack the Earth in half.Don't get me wrong...the thought of that curls my toes.The genius of this book is that your fear builds with the father's fear. And it...

    What I liked most about Firestarter was the bond between a father and his daughter. The character development is solid in this Stephen King story, especially considering the relationship of Charlie and Andy McGee.

Years later, one of them, Andy McGee, is on the run from The Shop, with his daughter, Charlie. Can Andy and Charlie evade The Shop before their world goes up in flames?...
