Summary, etc.:
In an ultraconservative America of the not-too-distant future when America has become a police state, the annual marathon is the ultimate sports competition, a deadly contest of endurance and determination. One hundred boys are selected each year to enter a grueling 450-mile marathon known as "The Long Walk." The game is simple: maintain a steady walking pace of four miles per hour without stopping. If you break the rules, you get three warnings, then you're out-permanently. The winner will be awarded whatever he wants for the rest of his life; but a single misstep could be the last. Travel a road of horrors with one of the world's bestselling authors in this harrowing tale of chilling, macabre possibility.
