This is the third gripping tale in the four-part audio series from Stephen King's best-selling book "Four Past Midnight." Set in Junction City, Iowa, "The Library Policeman" is the story of Sam Peebles, a middle-aged businessman who happens to have some overdue books. It seems a minor offense--but not to Junction City's malevolent monster of a librarian. What follows is spine-tingling suspense as only Stephen King can deliver it.… (més)

The first library scene: the deserted old library, nostalgia turning sour upon sight of the chilling posters and then the arrival of the sinister librarian, was my favorite part. The intrigue and subtlety of that didn't quite come through the rest... But I did like the haunting parallel uncoverings of the history of the library and the protagonist's long-ago trauma. King brings in the AA aspect again, that is also quite real. I always come back to King because of his irrepressible realness.

There was a nice little dig where the protagonist says most are bored by talk of his real estate/insurance work; those who aren't bored... are disgusted by it. I thought, indeed they should be!

I'd say mainly my issues, besides kind of leaving behind the sinister old library/librarian would concern the sort of typical dopey "regular joe" guys that some of King's novels are obsessed with, and how women get short shrift. In ways it's very (when was this published? Early nineties?).. Yeah. For example, such constant use of the B-word.

الويل لمن يستعير كتابا من المكتبة ولا يرجعه في ميعاده
أعتقد أن الرواية نفسية أكثر منها مرعبة فهيي تتناول مخاوف الطفولة المختبئة بعقلنا الباطن والتي تطفو إلي السطح من تحت رماد النسيان والكبت مع أقل موقف يثيرها
كان شرطي المكتبة ذكري لعينة صغيرة للبطل وكان يوجه عنفه للأطفال الذين يتأخرون في إرجاع كتاب مستعار ، جعلت القصة في أولها ذا رعب معوي وسرعان ما تكشفت اللعبة النفسية ورائها والمغزي من ورائها وهو مواجهة مخاوفنا بدلا من دفنها وكبتها
رائع هو ستيفن كينج في الأمور النفسية المؤدية إلي الرعب ( )

The first time I read this, I thought it was creepy and entertaining, like most of his work. But it didn't really resonate with at all. But the second time that I read it, after my son was born, I was truly terrified reading it. ( )

Go to the library--get stalked by a killer librarian. What fun? The star character is believable and he just keeps digging deeper into the library and gets into more trouble. I couldn't help the feeling that there's more to this than just what's on the surface, but didn't get it quite. Will I ever get another library card? ( )

Sam sells insurance in a small town in Iowa. One day, the Rotary Club's scheduled speaker has to cancel due to an injury, so Sam gets volunteered to prepare a last minute speech at the meeting. A friend recommends visiting the local library to get some material to help with his speech, which Sam does. Sam meets the local librarian, an eccentric and creepy woman. As he is checking out his books, the librarian reminds him to have them back on time or she will have to send out the "Library Policeman." Sam laughs this off as silliness until he is unable to find the library books, and his life unravels into terror.

How could I turn down a horror about librarians? Librarians in Iowa, even! Excellent story, and Ken Howard does an amazing job as the reader.
