Poplar Street is just an ordinary street in an ordinary town, except there's something strange about Audrey Wyler's nephew. When the strange-looking vans arrive a surreal nightmare begins which threatens to turn the familiar street into a wasteland of devastation and desperation.

Richard Bachman is really Stephen King, and The Regulators is a kind of companion novel to Desperation, which was published simultaneously. These books mark the return of the Stephen King of old; the Stephen King of The Stand and Pet Sematary, where good and evil were at war and blood and gore flowed through the pages. The companion novels center around a new personification of evil that goes by the name of Tak, unearthed by an evil mining company that's destroying the earth in the name of profit. In each, the characters and situations are altered as King plays with questions of identity and form. But the real point here is what's on Tak's mind? Does it want to "Eat pork rinds? . . . Screw some NFL cheerleaders? . . . Rule the earth?" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


'A writer of excellence...King is one of the most fertile storytellers of the modern novel' -- Guardian 'Popular fiction's most prolific terror-monger' -- The Times 'Slides slickly down an eager gullet' -- Telegraph -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

2.0 von 5 Sternen GLAK 17. Mai 2000
Von Liz
Richard Bachman's, "The Regulators", is an un-suspenseful story about an evil spirit on a street in Ohio. Although it was in our opinion poorly written( for we are 4 teenagers in an english class) it was greatly descriptive of the characters and setting. It confused us because it jumped around to view the many characters in the plot. It centered around blood and gore rather than supense and horror, and so then had major loopholes in the plot. 2 out of the 4 people in our group liked it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Vintage Stephen King? I think not! 30. Juni 2000
I read more than 75 novels each year and have read most of King's stuff. Obviously, with so much output from one writer, there are bound to be hits and misses. This one was a miss, in my opinion but there is still enough here to make it worth the read.
I had already read Desperation, the companion book to this volume, and came away with the feeling that I had just experienced a pretty good King novel. It also was far from his best but I enjoyed it none-the-less. So, naturally, I turned to this book, The Regulators, hoping for a similar experience. Stephen King is well known for marketing gimicry, pushing the envelope in the publishing business. At first it was through using brand names without permission. Then it was the alternate ego, Richard Bachman, followed by the serial novel (Green Mile) and now it is a "dual novel." Frankly, I don't think it worked this time. I just couldn't get the parallel between the two books/settings. Same names but different people and places. What was the point? Really, they are two seperate books.
In this novel, King definitely displays his famous talent for scene setting. The opening chapter is one of the best I've read, setting the stage for the coming horror. The plot was also pretty good, although the evil 'Tak' seemed somewhat ordinary. King uses a great mechanism to deliver the horror this time. The manifestation of the mind of a small autistic boy. The horrors come in the form of all of those things that frighten young children and, consequently, frighten us. The text is sprinkled throughout with other tidbits as well that help to tell the story: letters, postcards, diary entries, even a script. Another King tool to attack from all directions.
But somehow, it didn't all flow well together.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Richard Bachman, Not Stephen King 23. Juni 2000
Von R. Block
When you see the name Richard Bachman on the cover, you can be sure you're not getting Stephen King. The Regulators falls into that side of Stephen King that involves mass destruction by some sort of unknown force. People die. There is blood. Chaos ensues. And most importantly, the book didn't make me peek behind closed doors before I went to bed. Here's to hope that Desperation fills in the gaps of horror left out in this part of the collection.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I wish I could have read it while sleeping... 15. Mai 2000
Von M. Cox
to save time. Well, it almost had the same effect. Forced myself to get through it. I have Desperation, but don't know if I want to read it now.
Every time I thought the story was going to get exciting and interesting, it would never quite peak. Quite a tease that way. It read like a Bachman/King concept that never fully developed by the time the book was written. The hand-written diary entries grew VERY tiring.

1.0 von 5 Sternen what's with all the hoopla? 30. April 2000
The plot of this book reminded me of an episode of "Tales from the Crypt" or something. I was so bored I couldn't wait to finish it just to get it over with. I think King is highly overrated and people just like him because its him (even if it is Bachman). Desperation had a few good points but it was also very very preachy and therefore irritating. Some of the characters are well done but there still seems to be a major lack of excitement, twists, and there is no point to this book. Alot of people seem to have liked it, but I found it a big waste of time. I kept waiting to here the Cryptkeeper at the end.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Better than Desperation, Characters are Great 27. April 2000
I really liked The Regulators a lot better than desperation. The whole interplay between the possessed Seth, and Audrey was great. I also enjoyed that the book, in the style the great novel Dracula was written (I can't remember the name for this type of literature where different things are interposed ie journals, letters, etc) We have Audrey's diary, screenplays (phony) and letters to tell the story along with traditonal writing. I loved this book because of the interplay between Seth and Audrey. The ending, corny though it may be left me in tears! The use of such commonplace items as Spaghettios and Hershey's syrup, and kids toys helped make this book great. My only question is, in Desperation God is such a big part of the story yet not mentioned in Regulators at all. Why is this?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Potty Mouth attacks again 22. August 2005
Von bernie
This item would probably not have been published if Stephen King had not hit the big time with his other novels. This is a loose collection of mostly obscenities and nasties with a little gore to glue it together. It appears to be a test project for future novels.

I will not go too much into detail as each incidence relies on surprise. However we start out with a normal small town. Bizarre events eventually turn into a surrealistic nightmare. People are trapped in a twilight zone type of atmosphere and the question is if anyone will survive? It does not look possible.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining, original and NOT too long!
I read this book after reading "Desperation" and there doesn`t seem to be a big connection between the books except for the use of the same or similar characters. Lesen Sie weiter...

I liked Regulators a lot. I have read almost everything King has put out and i felt that he he had come home with the release of this book and it's companion Desperation. Lesen Sie weiter...

Here we go. After 10 years, Stephen King exhumed his well-known Bachman pseudonym. This volume, and companion 'Desperation', share the characters, although having read one, you... Lesen Sie weiter...

Bachman's bizarre world that he leads us into is spectacularly imaginative in its own evil warped way. It certainly is a step outside your run-of- the-mill novel realm. Lesen Sie weiter...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as good as Desperation
This is the 5th book that I have read by Stephen King and it is probably the worst. The plot never really developed and it wasn't scary at all. Lesen Sie weiter...

1.0 von 5 Sternen OH NO! Desperation is not his worse book!
I have read most of King's books. It is hard to believe the same person who wrote The Stand and The Shining wrote these two books. Lesen Sie weiter...
