I love when a writer, King especially, returns to a book to give us one more look. You don't have the fleshed out character situations here since it's a short, but the scenery of the diner with the trucks outside? It wasn't as far-fetched as some of the other stuff but held injected mystery if you keep thinking of it. I only plan to mention some of my most and least favorites. Make you pee your pants scary! Not especially horrifying but King's unique take on a bizarre stalker. A serial killer use to be determined by the number of killings, varying from two to ten victims, but apart from the obvious characteristics sick minds, twisted desires, compulsion to kill repeatedly it is hard to generalize about serial killers. He returns home at dawn to find the boy on the floor with a and the closet door slightly open.
Lester is a prime suspect when his first child died. The mystery is built in, and a little fog makes for extra suspense. I would have liked to read a full-length novel of this with a more fleshed-out protagonist; the potential was clearly visible. I liked Graveyard shift this, and The Mangler are the two movies I have yet to see , The Mangler I really was surprised how much I liked a story about a stem ironer coming to life! Dug how it ended open. Not a perfect collection but some will never be forgotten.
One of the best and underrated, it holds a subtle beauty and innocence about it. Their Fox sci-fi film The Darkest Minds and Lionsgate thriller Kin will be released this summer. Honestamente no me había adentrado mucho en las antologías de King, pese a ser uno de mis autores favoritos. Lester actually thinks that Rita is a jellyfish. Wish this was more than a glimpse.
I think that every story had a good initial idea behind it, but many of them unfortunately lacked a good execution. And definitely don't read this story if you intend to enter a cave or a mill anytime soon. In 2010, Irish film-maker Gerard Lough adapted it into a 27-minute movie. He wants to appear powerful and to possess the leading role of his marriage The way in which he has been raised has probably inspired him to develop this attitude. The pre-Carrie ones are, for the most, part collected near the beginning of the book, including such hits and misses depending on the reader, of course as Graveyard Shift 1970 , Night Surf, which is related to , the amazing book that isn't released until almost a full decade after the magazine article 1969 , I am The Doorway 1971 , The Mangler 1972 , The Boogyman 1973 , Grey Matter 1973 , Battleground 1972 , Trucks 1973 , Strawberry Spring 1968 , Sometimes They Come Back was published in March of 1974. He says that it is actually impossible to remember your kids when they are lost at a young age because you have not come to feel very attached to them yet. I think he sees every woman as jellyfish -something, which is inferior.
Even the infamous Children of the Corn offered up some thrills and chills. Some stories were downright hilarious and just a joy to read, such as Battleground and The Ledge. Well, yes, I certainly was. . Night Shift is a collection of King's short stories, and if I'm not mistaken, this is a collection of the first short stories he wrote in his early years of writing. Hay relatos que me parecen totalmente icónicos, y que fue todo un placer leerlos.
Another noteworthy disappointment would be Gray Matter. Night Shift is a vintage read and some stories are super dated but as I said before there are more great and timeless stories in this collection then there are clunkers. I think Poe and Lovecraft would agree. This one took me much longer than it should have to finish. This is another of my favorites in the book. The ending wasn't a surprise to me, I could kind of envision something like that coming.
A blend of cheesy B style stuff that is completely unlikeable and hokey, to serious life-questioning themes such as The Woman in the Room and The Last Rung on the ladder. Gory, gruesome, bloody, gross, and downright fantastic. Not all of the 20 stories in Night Shift his first short story collection are terribly frightening. Copyright © 2000 - 2013 Stephen King - All Rights Reserved. Lester insists that the Boogeyman took his children and proclaims is innocence. Nothing felt particularly outstanding in this story except for the epistolary structure, and as an introduction to the anthology it was a little bit deterring to me. A few of them are simply fantastic.
He apparently was still highly in his Salem's Lot world as he put in not one, but two, stories about the town here. He believes that his decisions and methods are the right ones because he is the man of the family. I could almost imagine some old fashioned song playing on the jukebox while reading this one. The ending can be spoiled so easily that I will not even attempt to give you an idea of what it is about. Lester actually thinks that Rita is a jellyfish. I want to get lost in a story with the continuing development of a story and its characters. Still don't know where the troll part of that movie comes back.
A bit scarier than Pet Sematary if one were to look at the bigger picture. You often don't get to find out what happens or why. Some other highlights were Quitters Inc. The general rating is an average result of each individual rating of the stories contained in the anthology. For emotional effects the movie has a better finale, but the book a creepier one. You have some amazing gems here, and the weak offerings are few and scattered, buried deeper.
