Man With a Belly * Stephen King

John Bracken sat on the park bench and waited to make his hit. The bench was one of the many on the outskirts of James Memorial Park, which borders the south side of Hammond Street. In the daytime the park is overrun by kids, mother wheeling prams, and old men with bags of crumbs forContinue reading “Man With a Belly * Stephen King”

Stephen King – The Outsider (Finders Keepers)

“Reality is thin ice, but most people skate on it their whole lives and never fall through until the very end. We did fall through, but we helped each other out. We’re still helping each other.” Welcome to the Supernatural Zone. Not Twilight Zone since Jordan Peele destroyed it with his political agenda. I’ve picked upContinue reading “Stephen King – The Outsider (Finders Keepers)”

Mile 81 * Stephen King Book Review

This was probably one of the shittiest books I’ve read from Stephen King in all my life. Why? The names sound made-up, the story is lacking in development and is seriously peppered with cultural references which will be obsolete in a decade. This one was Justin Bieber. Justin’s teeth had been blacked out, and someone hadContinue reading “Mile 81 * Stephen King Book Review”

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”

Stephen King * Desperation Book Review

“God says, “Sure, take away the safety net. And when that’s gone, take away the tight rope too.” This is one of the many books that Mr. King wrote that got a movie adaptation. A very crappy one indeed. But to be honest, the book wasn’t that good either! You can start throwing your rocksContinue reading “Stephen King * Desperation Book Review”

From a Buick 8 * Stephen King Book Review

“From a Buick 8 is a novel about our fascination with deadly things, about our insistence on answers when there are none, about terror and courage in the face of the unknowable.” This is another one of the dull and long-winded Stephen King books. “Desperation” was like this, “Insomnia” was like this and it has aContinue reading “From a Buick 8 * Stephen King Book Review”

Salem’s Lot * Stephen King (Or the best vampire book since Dracula)

“The town knew about darkness. It knew about the darkness that comes on the land when rotation hides the land from the sun, and about the darkness of the human soul” Vampires are so over-rated or so people think. We’ve had Twilight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Strain, The Summoning, Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles andContinue reading “Salem’s Lot * Stephen King (Or the best vampire book since Dracula)”

The Colorado Kid * Stephen King Short Story

The premise of the story is quite simple. One mysterious dead body, a set of newspapermen trying to find clues as to who’s done it and more importantly, how it was done. It’s a tale about mystery and the way to explain it and was adapted into a TV show called “Haven” (which by myContinue reading “The Colorado Kid * Stephen King Short Story”

Different Seasons * Stephen King

“Until we see each other again, keep your head together, read some good books, be useful, be happy.” Different Seasons (1982) is a collection of four Stephen King novellas with a more serious dramatic bent than the horror fiction for which King is famous. The four novellas are tied together via subtitles that relate toContinue reading “Different Seasons * Stephen King”
