An epic novel by Stephen King while he was writing under the pen name of Richard Bachman. The story follows 100 "walkers" as they participate in The Long Walk. The Walk is an event held each year in which 100 boys under the age of 18 walk for "the Prize"- whatever they want for the rest of their lives. There is one problem though, if your walking speed falls below 4 miles per hour for over a minute and a half, you are shot and killed until only one walker remains.
100 boys participate in The Long Walk, only one survives.
