Cell * Stephen King

If you ever wondered whether Stephen King attempted to write another amazing epic since “The Stand” that features a virus outbreak and mass-destruction of human society, “Cell” is the answer. Except the “Amazing” part. Cell fell short of the epic story involving Captain Trips and resembled more the first season of “The Walking Dead”. IContinue reading “Cell * Stephen King”

A bag of bones * Stephen King Book Review

The muses are ghosts, and sometimes they come uninvited. I read this one while I was still in high school and I thought it was quite dark and (in parts) extremely troubling. This was an amazing book then and I wondered whether it would have aged well like wine. And I re-read it again overContinue reading “A bag of bones * Stephen King Book Review”

Stephen King * Stationary Bike Short Story

You can. You should. And if you’re brave enough to start, you will. —Stephen King A riveting riff on artistic frustration, midlife mortality, and hard-won redemption, Stationary Bike is a thrill ride that could come only from the mind of Stephen King.

The Dark Half * Stephen King Book Review

“…he was after all, a novelist…and a novelist was simply a fellow who got paid to tell lies.

The Basis of Morality * Stephen King Book Review

All money tends to corrupt, and absolute money corrupts absolutely. This is an ancient message. You can find it in the Bible (“the love of money is the root of all evil”), in the writings of ancient Greek philosophers and Renaissance moralists, and also in Stephen King’s Morality story. Morality is a novella by Stephen KingContinue reading “The Basis of Morality * Stephen King Book Review”
