It's called "Cell" and is due for release in January 06, the synopsis reads pretty decently.



Book Description

Civilization doesn't end with a bang or a whimper. It ends with a call on your cell phone. What happens on the afternoon of October 1 came to be known as the Pulse, a signal sent though every operating cell phone that turns its user into something...well, something less than human. Savage, murderous, unthinking-and on a wanton rampage. Terrorist act? Cyber prank gone haywire? It really doesn't matter, not to the people who avoided the technological attack. What matters to them is surviving the aftermath. Before long a band of them-"normies" is how they think of themselves-have gathered on the grounds of Gaiten Academy, where the headmaster and one remaining student have something awesome and terrifying to show them on the school's moonlit soccer field. Clearly there can be no escape. The only option is to take them on. CELL is classic Stephen King, a story of gory horror and white-knuckling suspense that makes the unimaginable entirely plausible and totally fascinating.



I've been reading so many military themed books as of late that I think that this will be a refreshing break.

So basically the entire Third World where everyone is too poor to own a cell phone escapes unscathed? What kind of justice is that?

From my daily commute, you'd think most of these cell-phone bitches have already been infected.

Third-world cell phone technology is quite advanced.
Imagine not needing to lay millios of miles of cable.

Sounds like my trip to the mall today - thousands of mindless zombies yacking into cell phones with a few wearing those goddamn stupid ass looking bluetooth earpieces. I can't believe I let my wife drag my ass down there.

I'll get the book when it comes out on audible.com
