My thoughts - This book made me feel physical pain! I questioned myself a lot throughout, and I felt weak as I am certain I wouldn't get very far in The Long Walk. although I also like to think I would prepare myself well.
Reading this during a pandemic also made me feel very uncomfortable because the main character, Ray Garity, is constantly surrounded by other people.
It covers many uncomfortable topics and made a very interesting read. I felt really invested in the progress of the walkers and really wanted Ray to win.
Although I found this interesting, and gripping, I also felt like I wanted to know more. Why are they walking? What happened after the walk? Why is Ray, or any of them for that matter, walking?
My -rating 3/5
