Children of the Corn
Children of the Corn - Stephen King
Oh, I don’t remember this novel being like this. As I began to read this novel, I had to check the cover again to make sure I was reading the correct book. I thought this novel was about a carload of individuals and what happened to them. I thought I remembered them being chased in a cornfield and the children’s eyes glowing. Now I am totally confused. Now, I need to watch the movie to see if its anything like this book. I wanted to read this novel as I remember it being one of the first horror books I read when I was growing up. It’s been over 30 years, so it’s no wonder I am confused. I am just glad that I found it and read it.
 
This novel is actually about a husband and wife who are driving across country to visit her brother and his wife. Burt has been doing most of the driving while Vicky is supposed to be doing the map reading, which is leading into some heated conversations. A quick glance at Vicky and Burt finds the car bumping over something. As he stops the vehicle, Vicky is hysterically screaming that Burt has hit a boy. A boy who came out of the corn field. Now what? They’re responsible so they try to dispose of the body with proper authorities but, where are they?

 

I know Halloween Bingo is over but me, I am still playing. I have 4 books yet to read.  This book is my 80's Horror book.

Sweet feel-good story
Of Love and Corn Dogs (Of Love And... Book 1) - Parker Williams,Jae Ashley

Of Love and Corn Dogs is, for the most part, a sweet feel-good story featuring two adorable, be it at times frustrating, protagonists I couldn’t help but fall for.

 

Ricky is such a good guy. He’s nice. He just wants people to be happy, doesn’t appear to have a selfish bone in his body, and charmed me from the moment he appeared on the page.

 

Darwin was a different story. Initially he came across as rather short and stand-offish. Of course the fact that he at first appeared to be rather arrogant made it all the more wonderful when he revealed himself as a thoroughly good and warm-hearted man.

 

I read most of this story with a huge grin on my face as these two men find their way towards each other and in the process brighten each other’s lives. Of course it isn’t all plain sailing and I’ll happily admit to feeling the urge to slap first Darwin and subsequently Ricky for being short-sighted fools and almost destroying what could be. But, I could understand their reasons for doing what they did, even if I didn’t agree with them.

 

This story features quite a few fabulous secondary characters. I adored Henley (Darwin’s chauffeur) and Maria (his cook) but there were others who made me smile. In fact, as I said before, this whole book made me happy. This is a thoroughly enjoyable feel good story and as such it was exactly what I needed during a somewhat sad and difficult personal time. It was impossible to not fall hard for both Ricky and Darwin and root for them from the start. Just as I now find myself very curious about ‘corn dogs’ and longing for a good shake. J

 

In short, I highly recommend this book if you happen to be looking for a story that will make you smile and lift your spirits. In the meantime, I’ll be investigating other solo novels by Parker Williams. I have no doubt I’m in for a happy surprise or two.

Meh.

Honestly, I found this dry (the writing) with a side of boring (the storytelling/plot). Probably it's one of those "me not the book" situations *shrugs*.
