Book by Stephen King

Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). The obvious answer is that Hollywood never came calling about 'Rage', but due to the other books in Different Seasons gaining success at the box office, Hollywood did come calling about 'Apt Pupil' and the movie was made before Columbine. So perhaps removing the book after to movie deal would be bad business.

Stephen King at his best! Apt Pupil is the story of Todd Bowden, a brilliant kid that somehow finds out that a Nazi war criminal, Kurt Dussander, lives nearby. But instead of turning him out, Todd decides to feed his own psychopathic tendencies and so he learns from Dussander.

This review is concerned primarily with the quality of the narration. My audiobook is narrated by Frank Muller. Mister Muller's narration is very professional. It is a true theatrical performance. That is what the "five star" rating is for. I truly appreciate professional excellence.

I found the story itself, at times, almost excruciating. As a father, and now grandfather, I would most strongly advise any parent to carefully review this story in its entirety before even considering having a youth read it. I did find it quite gripping. A real "page turner". The story itself is well written, but the subject matter was at times disturbing, at other times disgusting, and sickening.
This novella was really disgusting at points. It's an assaultive work, and it hits all the senses with a sledge hammer.
On its face, it's a story about how easy it is to lose your morality; one thing after another, and sooner or later, you're an empty human being with nothing left but the desire to do awful things just to make the blood move again. It's about what it's like to lose everything good inside yourself, and know that you'll never get it back. You almost feel bad for the sinister characters in the piece, even though through the course of the narrative they've done unspeakable things.

One thing that came to mind immediately after finishing the novella was the raw, obvious similarities and correlations between 'Apt Pupil' and Stephen King's other child-gone-wrong book 'Rage'; in fact, it almost seems like 'Apt Pupil' is the story King was trying to tell with 'Rage' to begin with. 'Apt Pupil' is more developed than 'Rage,' certainly. It's got a lot more character work in the narrative and its voice is a tad more pronounced. It's far dirtier, too, because while in 'Rage' you knew very little, all in all, about the demented child killing everyone, in 'Apt Pupil' you spend the entire course of the narrative getting to know the child, and the places where his dark desires originate.

I'm very surprised that King ever removed 'Rage' from publication, if he has not removed this work as well. Even beyond their gross similarities, the essential nerve that's struck is the same. I read 'Rage' many, many years ago and it really worked on me; in exactly the same way this did, only in a less refined way. 'Rage' was blunt, without reason. The same conclusion is reached, though. Why would King remove 'Rage' but leave 'Apt Pupil' in print? I've watched interviews with him after Columbine and he seemed so passionate about it. He must know that there are millions of copies of 'Rage' out there, and that removing it from publications does nothing. But more than that, as the writer of the works, he also must know that the two books are like two brothers, one farther along and more developed than the other; the fact remaining that they come from the same family, and were raised identically. I don't understand why, if 'Rage' is so horrible that he felt he had to strike it from publication, why he wouldn't automatically decide to do the same for 'Apt Pupil'. The obvious answer is that Hollywood never came calling about 'Rage', but due to the other books in Different Seasons gaining success at the box office, Hollywood did come calling about 'Apt Pupil' and the movie was made before Columbine. So perhaps removing the book after to movie deal would be bad business. I'm not going to judge Stephen King for this kind of inconsistency; I just thought I'd point it out.
All in all, I think 'Apt Pupil' works for the right reasons, and I think it raises questions about whether sociopaths are born or bred to be what they are. I think it also shows a mirror to the American heart, and many people won't like what they see there.

The movie made from this book is absolutely awful, and I would not recommend it to anyone. Poor directing, editing; poor everything.

WARNING: This story contains horrific animal cruelty and violence against homeless and poor people. If you're sensitive to these kinds of things, don't read this story. The animal cruelty within the story really bothered me, but in my view it was needed to frame exactly how depraved the characters in the narrative truly were.

I gave it four out of 5 stars because of the pace of story, realism in the narrative, and the propulsive, assaultive style and how it worked on my brain. Many things can be said about Stephen King, but open thing is for sure: he keeps people reading like gangbusters.
