This is King's classic collection of four novellas, the first of which led to the beloved movie Shawshank Redemption. I enjoyed two and a half of the stories in this collection. The Shawshank story was outstanding (and it was interesting to see the differences between the book and the film). The Apt...

Synopsis: Different Seasons (1982) is a collection of four novellas, markedly different in tone and subject, each on the theme of a journey. The first is a rich, satisfying, nonhorrific tale about an innocent man who carefully nurtures hope and devises a wily scheme to escape from prison. The second...

I'm a little embarrassed to admit this is the very first work of Stephen King's I've read. More embarrassing since my family lives in Maine, which is also his home state. I'm not much of a horror person, so I chose this classic instead. And it was great! What are your favorite King novels? And what ...

This book contains four of King's most famous novellas: "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," "Apt Pupil," "The Body," and "The Breathing Method." Most people are familiar with these stories because all but "The Breathing Method" became movies. My favorite story was "Apt Pupil." The tensi...

King in an afterword describes these four novellas of about 20 to 35 thousand words as stories of "an off-beat prison-break, an old man and a young boy locked up in a gruesome relationship based on mutual parasitism, a quartet of country boys on a journey of discovery, and an off the wall horror sto...

It's amazing the amount of Stephen King movies I saw before I even read a single word of his prose, and even more amazing to me that I only realized just how much of it was his stuff when I discovered the internets. I watched Stand By Me whenever it came on television,and I practically wore out my V...

I'm not particularly a fan of King's horror stuff but when he writes about the "real" world he's a match for almost anyone. These stories are all classics, particularly "The Body".
