    Summary

    "That peaceful expression… he had no right! Others pushed on until their very minds failed them. And McVries was still sitting down."

    OR: Garraty manages to get McVries to get up. If by the end of the book you curled into a tiny ball, at the mercy of your own feels like I did, this one's for you.

    Summary

    100 boys. 4 miles per hour. 1 winner. 99 lost souls.

    One hundred teenage boys participate in an annual walking contest called "The Long Walk". Each Walker must maintain a speed of at least four miles per hour; if he drops below that speed for 30 seconds, he receives a verbal warning. If a Walker with three warnings slows down again, he will get shot dead by soldiers riding in half-tracks along the roadside. The winner receives "The Prize": anything he wants for the rest of his life.

    Ray felt a strange warmth where McVries’ hand had been. It felt comfortable and soothing and he almost wished he would put it back and leave it there.

    But why would he wish for something like that? Where did that fascination with McVries come from? Was he that tired that his mind began playing tricks on him? That he was longing for a guy to touch him. Seriously, what was it about this boy? But no matter how hard he wracked his brain, he came up blank. Maybe he was just lonely. Lonely between these 25 remaining boys. Lonely between the rows of shouting and cheering people, decorating the shoulders of their little grey world.

    Summary

    The last weekend before the Walk is when just about every young person in the country gets their yearly fix of misbehaving. Under the strict caution of his father, Ray Garraty usually stays out of it. But when he ends up impulsively spending his Friday night with a stranger he meets in town, he may be getting into far more trouble than he's used to.

    Summary

    But Art was talking about the hurricane they’d had twelve years ago, the one that had, six hours in, closed the Walk down for almost a week. The Squads had worked overtime to clear the roads again and there’d even been talk of shutting down the continental walk, standardizing the location. Garraty had sat through the footage of the protests in every history class since the second grade. THE LONG WALK IS FOR ALL AMERICANS. THIS LAND IS WALKER LAND.

    “Those dumb bastards,” Abraham said. “You have to feel sorry for them, don’t you? Getting a week’s break only six hours in? I bet they hadn’t even handed out five tickets yet. Most of them probably weren’t even winded.”

    (A tornado warning means Garraty and McVries get a moment to themselves, not that they really know what to do with it.)

    Summary

    He just had to keep moving his legs, dragging his feet, chase off the hands that desperately were trying to grab him.
    They wanted to kill him!
    The figure before him turned back, but it was too far away to see who it was. It was always too far away, always before him. Vague and ethereal, unattainable and omnipresent. When he believed to have reached it, the shape accelerated, putting one step after another from itself and him.
    Maybe it was the rabbit!

     

    «Just go on dancing with me like this forever, Garraty, and I'll never tire.»

    Summary

    La figura davanti a lui si era voltata, ma era troppo lontano per capire chi fosse. Era sempre troppo lontano, sempre davanti a lui. Vaga ed eterea, irraggiungibile e onnipresente. Quando credeva di averla raggiunta, lei accelerava, mettendo un passo dietro l’altro fra se e lui.
    Forse era il coniglio!
