One of my favorite collections by Stephen king. "riding the bullet" was my favorite story in the collection and really frightened me and was a very dark and suspenseful story. Overall,it is a good and frightening collection of stories that are sometimes dark and mysterious or full of hope and joy. I highly recommend this collection that is perfectly written by the best storyteller there is. If you want to be scared,pick up this book and you won't regret it. And I got it in hardcover for $0.99 at alibris!! Can you believe it?!? I absolutely love Alibris and can't get enough of it! And I'm sure you can't get enough either!
