Reviews

offers striking reminders of King's mastery of structure . . . compulsively readable * Private Eye * The collection's story stand-out story is the final novella . . . resembles Hitchcock's Suspicion with extra turns of the screw. * The Sunday Times * The genius of King is not the fecundity of his imagination, great though it is, but the empathy he can create between the reader and a character . . . He is . . . not a national, but global treasure . . . just buy the book. Trust me, you won't be disappointed * Scotsman * Mr. King's gift of storytelling is unrivaled. His ferocious imagination is unlimited * George Pelecanos * America's greatest living novelist * Lee Child * An extraordinary collection, thrillingly merciless and a career high point * Matt Thorne in the * Fine stories to take with us into the night * Neil Gaiman in the Guardian *

King leaves the supernatural behind to find the macabre in stories of ordinary misfortune. In each, ordinary people discover how their choices define who they are and what they can become. As usual, King's characters are multidimensional and colorful, if not necessarily sympathetic. Craig Wasson takes on two of the stories, and his raspy voice is a pleasure to listen to. The main characters in "1922" and "Fair Exchange" are not young men, and his mature gruffness and easy delivery are perfect. And while Jessica Hecht's reading of both "Big Driver" and "A Good Marriage" is pleasant and steady, her characterizations through dialogue are not very broad, and sometimes sound timid and whiny. Still, the strength of the stories keeps the listener enthralled. A Scribner hardcover. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

King, a modern master of short fiction, offers four disturbing but unforgettable novellas that explore our capacity for retribution. Narrators Craig Wasson and Jessica Hecht bring these psychological chillers to life. (LJ 3/15/11) (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
