Entertainment, in the future designed by King, is everything, and stemming from it comes fortune, fame and success where many other outlets can no longer provide such things. The novel’s namesake event is held using volunteers, and the novel follows the footsteps of idealistic teen Garraty as he passes from the realms of gentle young curiosity into the depths of horror, loss and violence. The Long Walk explores some of the baser instincts of mankind in vibrant contrast to the hungry desires of the masses to witness atrocities in the name of entertainment.
