Synopsis: In this #1 national bestseller, ?master storyteller? ( Houston Chronicle) Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, tells the tale of the contestants of a grueling walking competition where there can only be one winner?the one that survives.
?I give my congratulations to the winner among your number, and my acknowledgements of valor to the losers.?
Against the wishes of his mother, sixteen-year-old Ray Garraty is about to compete in the annual grueling match of stamina and wits known as The Long Walk. One hundred boys must keep a steady pace of four miles per hour without ever stopping...with the winner being awarded ?The Prize??anything he wants for the rest of his life. But, as part of this national tournament that sweeps through a dystopian America year after year, there are some harsh rules that Garraty and ninety-nine others must adhere to in order to beat out the rest. There is no finish line?the winner is the last man standing. Contestants cannot receive any outside aid whatsoever. Slow down under the speed limit and you?re given a warning. Three warnings and you?re out of the game?permanently....
Product Description: In an ultra-conservative America of the not-too distant future when America has become a police state, the annual marathon is the ultimate sports competition. One hundred boys are selected each year to enter a grueling 450-mile marathon walk. The game is simple: maintain a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. Three warnings, and you're out--permanently. The winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life; but a single misstep could be the last?.
