A Good Marriage
A Good Marriage
I liked A Good Marriage. Sadly, I was wondering whether my wife would find out if I were in fact a serial killer.
I also liked Fair Extension, enjoyed the tragedy perhaps a bit too much.
I disgust myself.
I liked 1922 the best because of the good descriptions. Then A Good Marriage, Big Driver, and Fair Extension. I guess I like the suspense and gore the best.
Big driver to me didn't seem as original as the other pieces. something i've seen or heard before. i enjoyed the story, but thought the others hooked my attention more so.
As for the order, i thought it was set up like an old play. When an act came to a close and tensions and suspense were high. A small interlude of softer topic to give the audience a moment to catch themselves.
1922 really creeped me out. Well they all did, but I love a good revenge story so I think Big Driver was my fav
My favorite story so far has been Big Driver, I still have the last two stories to read; but I liked Big Driver because of the storyline. Here we have this Author who experiences one of the worst experiences an individual can have. She breaks down on the road and an individual who poses as a good Samaritan, becomes her nightmare. I liked it because at first Tess seemed meek and not like the tough time; but after the hell she went through, she gets even. It's a story that keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. Will she end up like his other victims or will she be able to escape? I'm glad she didn't become a causality and was able to fight back as well as finding someone she could talk 2 about her hell on Earth. A great story, I can't wait 2 see what Fair Extension and A Good Marriage have to offer. I did like 1922 but Big Driver was better, did anyone else feel the same about comparing just these 2?
I really liked this whole book! Not sure I can choose a favorite! I do have to add that Under The Weather was good and creepy!
I guess most of these posts were put up before any of the posters had a chance to read it?
Big Driver...Disturbing but good.
A very close match between Big Driver and 1922.
If forced at gun point I'd probably have to go with 1922, that ending with the realizing what the rats really were just turned the whole thing on it's head and made the whole story a shade darker.
I am on the last story in Full Dark No Stars, and even though I replied earlier and said my favorite story was BIG DRIVER I got to admit all the stories have been excellent, I am surprised by this because I usually just have a couple of favorites from each of his short story collections . A few from Night Shift/Skeleton Crew, one or 2 from the 4 story books, a lot people either like his short stories and a lot just like his novels. I like both, even though some of those shorts can get very weird. I have made some mistakes and saw a Stephen King movie before reading the book and was like WTF, only did that a few times. The Golden
Rule with every movie is read the book 1st; than see the movie, a book is always better- especially a Stephen King movie.
