    There’s a fair amount of criticism out there about Stephen King A lot of it is valid but there are certain times that he’s the perfect author to be reading Like last night when a winter storm blew through Freezing temperatures snow ice and high winds made it look like an Artic wasteland outside As I lay reading under my warm blankets I paused for a moment and listened to the wind making the house creak an

“ I believe there is another man inside every man a stranger ” writes Wilfred Full Dark EpubLeland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up “” the first in this pitch black uartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King For James that stranger is awakened when his wife Arlette proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness In “Big Driver” a cozy mystery writer named Tess encounters. Life is fair We all get the same nine month shake in the box and then the dice roll Some people get a run of sevens Some people unfortunately get snake eyes It s just how the world isFull Dark No Stars is a collection of 4 novellas in which King explores the dark side to people and how exactly would you react if placed in certain situations For example what would you do if you found out that your husband of over 20 years has been hiding a dark secret How would you react if a a psychopath raped you and left you for dead If given the opportunity to pass your hardships onto someone else would youOne of my favourite aspects and one of the most horrifying things about this collection is that some of these scenarios could actually happen You could very easily find yourself in a situation where you don t know your spouse as well as you thought you did And there is definitely the potential to encounter brutal rapistsmurderers whilst driving down uiet backroads Although there is a slight supernatural element to 1922 there is still the very real possibility of making one single bad decision that will continue to impact and haunt you for years Even the story Fair Extension makes you uestion how far you are willing to go to save your own ass at the detriment of someone else1922 was a great opener for the collection it was scary hard hitting and sucks you into the story very uickly One of the best short stories or novellas whatever that I ve ever read from King It was brilliant Next up was Big Driver which was hard to read at times it was brutal visceral and terrifying especially reading this as a woman I can t deny that I have recently felt uneasy driving down the backroads around my housemaybe stick to main busy roads in future Fair Extension was awesome I loved how King juxtaposed the fate of the two families I d read an entire book based on that story and idea Lastly A Good Marriage This was one I felt slightly less excited about reading about as I had already watched the adaptation last year and just thought it was okay But I REALLY enjoyed this one Darcy is a badass I can t even begin to imagine what I would do in that scenarioIt s very easy to see where the title for this collection comes from these are dark heavy stories with pretty much no light or positive outcomes I thoroughly enjoyed each story and would probably give each individual novella five stars which is very rare when it comes to collections of short stories or novellas I can honestly say I was sad to come to the end of this collection and I think I now have a new book to recommend to people who are looking to venture into the world of King Highly recommend this oneKing I missed you

review Full Dark No Stars

Full Dark No Stars

The stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book club engagement Violated and left for dead Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face to face with another stranger the one inside herself “Fair Extension” the shortest of these tales is perhaps the funniest Making a deal with the devil not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment When her husband of than twenty years is away on. 1922 A man coerces his son into helping him murder his wife Can they keep their sanity in the aftermath1922 is a latter day retelling of A Telltale Heart only with rats and a Bonnie and Clyde side story It s also damn good and a prime example of what Stephen King can do when he has a limited number of pages to work with instead of the entire paper output of a redwood forestBig Driver After taking a shortcut down an unfamiliar road a writer is raped and left in a culvert to die but her attacker made a mistake He let her liveWow this was a powerful dark unsettling tale of rape and revenge Did I mention it was uncomfortable A woman getting raped is much horrifying than a nightmare clown lurking in the sewers I kept having revenge fantasies of my own on behalf of the women in my life while reading thisFair Extension When a mysterious stranger offers Harry Streeter 15 20 years of life he jumps at the chance But with deals of this kind there s always a catchThis one kind of reminds me of The Monkey s Paw For all the good luck the Streeter family has shit rains down upon the man Streeter hates the mostA Good Marriage Darcy Anderson thought she had a good marriage until she found something her husband hid in their garageThe point this story drives home is how little anyone really knows anyone else Chilling and very effectiveFull Dark No Stars isn t my favorite King book but it s chock full of Kingliness and is an excellent example of what sai King can do when he isn t allowed to write phonebook sized tomes Four out of five stars

One of his business trips Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband It’s a horrifying discovery rendered with bristling intensity and it definitively ends a good marriage Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight which generated such enduring films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me Full Dark No Stars proves Stephen King a master of the long story form Audio CDs Hour. Full Dark Four Stars In Full Dark No Stars we get four dark tales filled with murder revenge terror and death That my friend is regular Monday morning at Stephen King s head anyway Novella 1 1922 To be honest I picked up Full Dark No Stars after watching the trailer for 1922 movie adaptation and I am happy to say that the novella delivers The story is set in Nebraska and the year is that s right you guessed it 1922 We are introduced to Wilfred James a farmer who loves his way of living and his wife Arlette who despise their way of living and their teenage son Henry The story takes a dark turn when Arlette decides to sell the land she inherited from her father and move to the city a decision James can t even consider You see he is kind of person who loves the land he lives in and he wants to start farming in Arlette s land tooI think you can see where this is goingWhat you will not see if you don t read this book is how good the narration is The story is narrated by James and King did an excellent job fleshing out the characters and the incidents I loved the period drama King brought to the story The locations the mentality of people the creeping horror and bloody good storytelling makes this the best story in this collection for me Novella 2 Big Driver In king s Short story collection book called Everything s Eventual there was story named In the Deathroom In author s note King hinted that In the Deathroom is basically a wish fulfillment where the protagonist pulls through even though the cards were stacked against himBig Driver felt like In the Death room but of course Big Driver is longer and digs deep into its characters Yet I felt like the story was a bit unreal at times The story is hard to read because it involves view spoilerrape and assault hide spoiler
