Not read yet but should be up to the usual S King standard.

I read and re-read these stories as a teenager and found myself wanting to read "Long Walk" again - which I posit would make a brilliant screenplay! Once again I enjoyed King's ability to pull the reader along and, as a teenager, I again read his stories long into the night.

I remember reading this some years ago and always hoped Stephen King would continue the series and low and behold I found out a few months ago that he had, so I brought the first one again(which has had some added material by the author) and I will now continue reading the rest of the series. I thought this was a brilliant read with a good story and main character, I'm now on book 3 and still enjoying them.

A little pretentious and confusing

Brilliant collection of not-quite-short stories. This is the first Stephen King book I have read and loved it.

Nicely presented box set of books. Mine came through with a little surface damage on a corner of the box, but nothing major. Hoping for some good reads!

I enjoyed the book as I wanted to try something from famous Stephen King. I did not want exact horror so someone recommended for me Rose Madder. I enjoyed book but I do not have feeling that I want to come back to it anymore, the feeling I have sometimes when reading other books.

This book leads into a wonderful series. It has great depth and is therefore not always an easy read but really worthwhile as some parts take a while to work out. Hidden meanings and mystery pervail, I really do love this series. Sorry, I won't be selling it back, its staying on my shelf to be worn out!

In his introduction Stephen King says he drew inspiration from Tolkien but if he did the influence is well hidden. A dark and depressing tale with a threadbare storyline - what was all the fuss about? I’ll persevere onto book 2 and see if it gets any better...
