Customer Review

on 8 September 2011
I have to admit upfront that I love Stephen King - been reading his books for 23 years and have at least LIKED everything he's written. For me, reading his stories is always a pleasure because I love the way he writes. Not everyone likes short stories and by their nature, they are always going to be less satisfying than a full length novel. But that isn't the same as being less ENJOYABLE. And this little story is classic King in my opinion. King's ability to write from a child's perspective is evident here and in answer to the previous reveiwer's criticism of him for trying to be "hip" by mentioning Justin Beiber: why wouldn't he?!! As the mother of a 12 year old girl, I can assure you that he used the reference correctly and placed Beiber in exactly the context in which he exists for most post 8 year olds! Since when did pop culture references in a popular author's writings become something to criticise?

I think that far too many Amazon reviewers complain about short stories they've downloaded to their Kindles for a nominal sum (or for free) simply because they are short. These people should read the description before they download!! Keep them coming Mr King - I'll always want more!
