A collection of brilliantly chilling and oddly puzzling stories,
This review is from: Skeleton Crew: featuring The Mist (Kindle Edition)
This collection of short stories starts off well with the excellent "The Mist" which I can't help wonder if it couldn't have become a novel in it's own right. There is then a selection of odd and bizarre tales which I'm sure I just don't get at all! In the second half of the book there are some real gems such as beachworld and the ballad of the flexible bullet which should not be missed. As with most of King's writing it will leave you with that strange sense of discomfort several times, but do bear in mind that some of these stories were written quite some time back in his career and so they do reflect the time in which he was writing then.
