Description

Four unforgettable novellas from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King.

"Does anybody really know anybody? Before tonight she certainly would have thought so."

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King remains the master of the long story form in this unforgettable collection of four novellas that explore the dark side of human nature.

In "1922," a violence awakens inside a man when his wife proposes selling off the family homestead, setting in motion a grisly train of murder and madness.

A mystery writer is brutally assaulted in "Big Driver" by a stranger along a Massachusetts back road and plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.

In "Fair Extension," making a deal with the devil not only saves a man from terminal illness but also provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

Finally, the trust forged by more than twenty years of matrimony is irrevocably shattered when a woman makes a chance discovery leading to the horrifying implications of just who her husband really is in "A Good Marriage."

    These short stories reminded me of the "classic" Stephen King novels (ie. Christine, Carrie, Salem's Lot, Night Shift). No unnecessary profanity, just pure dark and honest story telling! Loved it!

    From R.E. Guru
    As the faithful reader that Steven King often writes to, I not only appreciate his talent, I have embraced the many different styles and genres that he has chosen to write in. This is the first book I have read on an electronic device, I was not excited about this at all, but it was a much better tool than I thought it would be. I must say the stories harken back to some of the darker and more bleak aspects of human nature that I have glimpsed in Steven King books of the past, books that I loved and shivered through in my teens and twenties. I am now a mature 50 year old woman and must say I was more moved and disturbed by these stories than I thought I could be. I found myself unable to sleep after reading a couple of the stories, not necessarily a good thing at this stage of my life. Atmospheric, engrossing and heartbreaking at times, this was a wonderful book, it really made me think, especially the last story as I have been married to my husband for 27 years and this one particularly freaked me out. Now I will be looking at my husband through different eyes. Thanks Steven King for showing me that I can still enjoy a good scare. I shall now try and find a sunny place as I feel kind of chilled, your faithful reader.
  • Time well spent!
