This was the first Stephen King novel I read and I picked it because it was his shortest. I've read several since then and this isn't his best work. I didn't think that girl would ever get out of the woods.

This is really fun! I read this while I was camping, and let me tell you, it was a pretty intense experience. If you haven't read this yet, I highly recommend you try and save it for when you can get outdoors. It's one of the shorter King works, but the book is taught and a survivalist page-turner. ...

The baseball. I should have guessed it from the title, but it bothered me very much. I really don't care for every little detail. There is a reason why I didn't do any sports in high school. The rest of the story was okay. Not extraordinarily good, but not that bad either. The end seemed a little st...

Very good but not great Stephen King. I still greatly prefer his horror fiction but this novel about a nine year old girl lost in the woods is still an engrossing story. There is nothing really supernatural in this tale but I like the way the suspense is established thorough the lost girl's own imag...

King had me up until the very end. It's a very strong, realistic, and compelling story of a girl lost in the woods. Until the end.
