  1. Thinner

    Thinner is a 1984 novel by Stephen King, published under his pseudonym, Richard Bachman. It would be the last novel which King released under the Richard Bachman pseudonym until the release of The Regulators in 1996, and the last released prior to Bachman being outed as being Stephen King's pseudonym. The initial hardcover release of Thinner included a fake jacket photo of "Bachman". The photo is claimed to have been taken by Claudia Inez Bachman. The actual subject of the photo is Richard Manuel, the insurance agent of Kirby McCauley, who was King's literary agent. The novel was adapted for the screenplay of a 1996 film of the same title.

Examples of thinner in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    One of the commonalities between many movies that come from Asian subcontinent is their strange and distasteful sense of humor to make fun of disabled, fat, ugly and less fortunate people , in general. It's a shocking observation that is truly disturbing, when you thin about it. Making fun of fat people won't make anybody any thinner, likewise making fun of ugly people won't make them any prettier either. Also, making fun of unsuccessful people won't necessarily make the mocker more successful. So why movie-makers and actors stoop to such low level of humor? It's best to leave those fellow human beings in the hands of the Sureme Power who created them. And the hard-hearted movie-makers and actors should, instead of making fun of people, work on improving themselves. We all are God's Children, and we must treat each other with respect and dignity.

  2. Grant Gustin:

    I'm happy with my body and who I am and other kids who are built like me and thinner than me should be able to feel the same way, not only that, but they should be able to feel like THEY could be a superhero on tv or film or whatever it may be someday.

  3. David Greenhalgh:

    What [ companies ] should do is make them like the Yoplait [ yogurt ] containers, where they're wider at the bottom and thinner at the top, it would be a very simple thing to design and change.

  4. Holly Phillips:

    Fluids help thin out the mucus that your body makes when you're sick, and when that germ-filled mucus is thinner, it's easier to clear out of your system.

  5. Richard Armour:

    A rumor is one thing that gets thicker instead of thinner as it is spread.
