I started The Dead Zone this morning - 30th August. I know in terms of living in the world, I could be considered something of a troglodyte because of this, but I'm happy to say that, going into the book, I didn't know the first thing about it. It's only as I've just gone to find the cover picture (not the same as the edition I'm reading, but I like how shit this one looks) that I saw it was made into a film by Cronenberg. I also couldn't avoid a one line synopsis which I'm pleased to say was covered by the first chapter anyway.
It's a bit of lame habit of mine to avoid finding out too much about any book or film before I read or watch them. I don't read generally read reviews to steer clear of spoilers. Anyway, troglodyte or otherwise, my mind is open to The Dead Zone and I'm well up for it.
