Synopsis: A través de los teléfonos móviles se envía un mensaje que convierte a todos en esclavos asesinos. Pocos se escapan de su fuerza y estos tendrán que sobrevivir en un mundo totalmente transformado.

Clayton Riddell no tiene teléfono móvil, su esposa, Sharon, tampoco. Están separados pero en contacto constante por su hijo Johnny Gee. Sus padres le han regalado un móvil para cosas urgentes. Saben que muy a menudo no lo lleva encima y por eso le riñen.
El uno de octubre Clay viaja a Boston por una entrevista de trabajo y de repente cuando pasea por el parque es testigo de escenas espeluznantes, escenas totalmente inexplicables: gente en la calle que hablando por el móvil se convierten repentinamente en monstruos asesinos, atacan y matan a todos los de su alrededor. Los coches chocan entre sí. Es una escena de caos sangriento, incendios, alarmas.. . incomprensible. Ya no hay canales de radio ni televisión, ni servicios de ningún tipo. Nada que pueda poner orden. Clay entiende que todo ha sido causado por un mensaje a través de los móviles. Consigue refugiarse en un hotel junto con otro hombre Tom McCourt y una adolescente, Alice, los dos sin móvil. Deciden abandonar la ciudad para averiguar si la situación es la misma en el resto del país. Para Clay, lo más importante es localizar a su hijo que, espera que hoy no lleve su móvil encima.
Los tres emprenden su viaje a pie hacia la ciudad donde vive Johnny y su madre. Andan de noche cuando los locos no se mueven. De día se esconden en casas abandonadas. En su camino se encuentran con otros que se han salvado pero son pocos y descubren que los locos se han convertido en una especie de zombies telepáticos. Estos se juntan de día en grandes masas, llamados por música transmitida por altavoces, en estadios de deportes. De noche duermen. Están controlados por los sonidos. Andan y andan hacia un solo destino.
La mujer de Clay ha sido víctima de la gran destrucción pero su hijo parece haber sobrevivido y Clay y sus dos compañeros siguen su pista. Van de ciudad en ciudad, entre cadáveres y zombies asesinos, entre el caos y la destrucción, hasta llegar a la ciudad de su destino.
Y allí Clay encontrará a Johnny, no el Johnny de antes, pero quizás algún día aprenderá de nuevo a ser un niño “normal”. El mensaje de los móviles va perdiendo toda su fuerza pero...el mundo nunca volverá a ser lo mismo.

Review: Witness Stephen King's triumphant, blood-spattered return to the genre that made him famous. Cell, the king of horror's homage to zombie films (the book is dedicated in part to George A. Romero) is his goriest, most horrific novel in years, not to mention the most intensely paced. Casting aside his love of elaborate character and town histories and penchant for delayed gratification, King yanks readers off their feet within the first few pages; dragging them into the fray and offering no chance catch their breath until the very last page.

In Cell King taps into readers fears of technological warfare and terrorism. Mobile phones deliver the apocalypse to millions of unsuspecting humans by wiping their brains of any humanity, leaving only aggressive and destructive impulses behind. Those without cell phones, like illustrator Clayton Riddell and his small band of "normies," must fight for survival, and their journey to find Clayton's estranged wife and young son rockets the book toward resolution.

Fans that have followed King from the beginning will recognize and appreciate Cell as a departure--King's writing has not been so pure of heart and free of hang-ups in years (wrapping up his phenomenal Dark Tower series and receiving a medal from the National Book Foundation doesn't hurt either). "Retirement" clearly suits King, and lucky for us, having nothing left to prove frees him up to write frenzied, juiced-up horror-thrillers like Cell. --Daphne Durham
