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!

suspenseful, brooding...partially sorrowful
Many tales pertaining to Stephen King's imaginative perspective on life. He realistically enters himself in certain stories, to show how he would deal with various predicaments from his own shoes in dark, brooding, suspenseful tales.
