4.0 out of 5 stars These four stories are not scary at all!, 7 Sept. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Different Seasons (Paperback)
Shame to say, I didn't know who Stephen King is until two years ago. All I knew about him was he is very famous in writting horror novels. So I expected the stories in this book would be scary. But it turned out all four stories were not scary at all. It's kinda all of the blue. This is the first Stephen King's fiction I borrowed from libraries. After I have finished reading it, I think I must buy it in bookstore to be one of my collections at home. There are four stories altogether. But I didn't read them in order as they do not have any relationship between one another.
Rita Hayworth And Shawshank: It's the second best story in this book and it's also the least scary one. It's a good story telling about people in prison. But don't expect any scary moment. You would be disappointed if you do so.
Apt Pupil: It's the last story I read in this book. I wanted to give up reading this one at the very beginning as I got bored really quick after reading its first few chapters. But I have to thank God I didn't. 'Cos it came out to be the best one among the four after all. It has a very well-written ending. I was deeply attracted by it. It's a can't-leave-it-till-I've-done kind of stories. Maybe you would easily get bored at the beginning, but it worths to read to the end then you would find that it's superb. But Weiskopf, the goverment agent in the story, is too apt to predict correctly all Todd Bowden has done. It's too surreal.
The Body: It's the third best story in this book. It's about a four boys' adventure. They got into the woods to look for a dead boy. Quite interesting, but not as bright as the first two.
The Breathing Method: It's the least interesting one. I bet that's why it was put as the last one of this book and it's the only one which wasn't made as a film. But I would have to say it's the most scary one while comparing with the other four stories.
The last thing I want to point out here. It's very odd that these four stories are separated into four seasons. 'Cos I found no relationship between these three stories and its corresponding season, except the winter one. The first three are not seasonally-related.
