Cell phones cause people to go...rabid is too light for what happens. Interesting and one of his best of his recent releases. If you like this, search out Blood Crazy by Simon Clark. It'll satisfy you after reading this one.

I've been a fan of Stephen King's books since I read The Shining in the late 70's but I stopped reading them after Misery. It seemed to me as if King had begun believing his own press, and his stories seemed to lose the old edge of his masterpieces like The Shining and The Stand. I started listening to Cell with the same fascination I used to feel with his older books until, near the end, when the story no longer seemed even remotely plausible, I realized that Cell was just another shaggy dog story. If you like episodic tales that don't really go anywhere, Cell may be to your liking. And it did cause me to think about just how pervasive this new cell phone technology has become. But in the end, it was just another long drawn-out story and it'll probably be a long while before I feel drawn to read another of his books.
