The second father and son pairing of King and Hill (after Throttle) is, to me, a better story. More simple, more straightforward, and quite enjoyable. And the novella format seems to augment their pairings. Short enough to not be tedious, long enough to get solid characterization. And speaking of characters, it was absolutely surreal to listen to the audiobook and hear someone yelling "Tobin." Thanks, King and Hill, for putting me into a story, even if I was the little bastard that started all the shenanigans ( )

Supremely weird and creepy - this father son duo certainly know how to scare readers in a matter of no time at all. Even though this is a novella - it really packs a punch with it's unique and chilling vibes. When a brother and sister hear a child scream for help they immediately pull their car over and look to see where it's coming from. It's coming from this sea of grass but they can't determine where in the grass the kid is. They take off into the field and within no time they terrifyingly lost in the grass. How did they lose each other and where is that kid? Sublimely creepy. ( )

I really enjoyed this short story and I agree that it harkens back to the days of Skeleton Crew and that is definitely a very good thing. I found the atmosphere and story line to be unsettling and creepy. Great story that could have been featured in an ultra-violent edition of Weird Tales. You can see the influence of Joe Hill. I clearly wasn't there, but I am betting that the younger King (who I really feel is the heir to the throne) pushed the envelope to make this story even darker and more sinister. I may be wrong, but whoever did, it was great.

I hope that they keep writing together.

Absolutely LOVED the intros to the new novels, especially the sequel to The Shining. It looks like that is going to be a very big story, picking up from near the time of the action in the first classic novel. Apparently like the Hotel California, the Overlook is a hotel that you can check out of but you can never leave....

NOS4A2 is clearly going to be a really fun novel as well. ( )

Short story (audiobook checked out via my library) with a classic King horror vibe: A brother and sister are traveling across the country when they hear a child calling out for help just off of the road. Bad things happen, including child death. ( )

This story just utterly freaked me out. It was creepy, disturbing, gross, unsettling. So, you know, basically perfect. I made the mistake of reading it late one night when my husband was at work for an overnight shift, and quite frankly, I had to watch a Christmas movie after reading this so I could fall asleep. It just crawled so far under my skin...I'm still thinking about it, and I'm fairly certain it's one that will linger for a long time. I wasn't prepared for what happens to Cal and Becky (could anyone really be prepared for that?) and I still haven't recovered. I'm glad no one was watching me read it, because my face was definitely doing some interesting (ugly) things. Excellent dark and twisty story. ( )
