    There’s a fair amount of criticism out there about Stephen King. A lot of it is valid, but there are certain times that he’s the perfect author to be reading. Like last night when a winter storm blew through. Freezing temperatures, snow, ice, and high winds made it look like an Artic wasteland outside. As I lay reading under my warm blankets, I paused for a moment and listened to the wind making the house creak and the sleet hitting the windows, and thought, “This is just about the perfect [...]

    1922: A man coerces his son into helping him murder his wife. Can they keep their sanity in the aftermath?1922 is a latter day retelling of A Telltale Heart, only with rats and a Bonnie and Clyde side-story. It's also damn good and a prime example of what Stephen King can do when he has a limited number of pages to work with instead of the entire paper output of a redwood forest.Big Driver: After taking a shortcut down an unfamiliar road, a writer is raped and left in a culvert to die but her at [...]

    Full Dark, Four Stars. In Full Dark, No Stars, we get four dark tales filled with murder, revenge, terror, and death. That, my friend, is regular Monday morning at Stephen King's head anyway! Novella #1 1922To be honest, I picked up Full Dark, No Stars after watching the trailer for 1922 movie adaptation, and I am happy to say that the novella delivers. The story is set in Nebraska and the year is (that's right, you guessed it) 1922. We are introduced to Wilfred James, a farmer who loves his way [...]

    "Life is fair. We all get the same nine-month shake in the box, and then the dice roll. Some people get a run of sevens. Some people, unfortunately, get snake-eyes. It's just how the world is."Full Dark, No Stars is a collection of 4 novellas in which King explores the "dark side" to people, and how exactly would you react if placed in certain situations? For example, what would you do if you found out that your husband of over 20 years has been hiding a dark secret? How would you react if a a p [...]

    there are times when it seems stephen king is afflicted with 'murakami syndrome' y'know what i mean: the guy has quite the incredible imagination but large swaths of his prose makes it so you can't entirely rule out the fact that he might be a bit retarded. you also wonder why king feels the need to end each story on the perfect note. it ain't always the best tack as concerns creepy-as-shit stories: all this horror/existenzy stuff begs for some mystery, some questions left unanswered and the sec [...]

    I finished!Full Dark, No Stars. I always liked that title. It’s a subtle warning for what lies ahead within these four novellas, but I didn’t realize how accurate it was, until I read them all. Let me add a warning you before you decide to read them: Not for the faint of heart.

    I reviewed it in the Guardian - you can read the full review over at guardian/books/2010/nov/05/full-dark-stephen-king-review, so I'm not going to put it all up here for a while. But it begins Novellas are an odd form of writing, and there is no love for them in publishing. They are the wrong size. You need about four of them to make a standard-sized book.It has been almost 30 years since Stephen King's first set of four novellas, Different Seasons, four stories written in the golden dawn of his [...]

    Ok, I am going to review each story, as well, individually as they deserver. POSSIBLE SPOILERS1. 1922 - This story is actually a confession of a man who has just murdered his wife. He has even dragged his innocent 14 year old son into this as well, which is very heartbreaking. I feel this story makes you realize that our actions have consequences that we will somehow at some point feel. Is it karma? What goes around, comes around? Ghosts? Insanity? This man, after committing this heinous crime f [...]

    Thanks to , I have been introduced to a lot of fine authors Iwould not otherwise have heard of. Some have become new favorites.But no matter how enjoyable these authors' works are, none of them cancompare to the security and enjoyment of going back to Stephen King.I often complain of being a relatively slow reader. But this is never the case with King. He has the wonderful gift of emotionally involving you into a story, coming to know and understand his characters, and when this happens, the mec [...]

    4.5This was a great collection by King; 2 short stories and two stories that are actually novellas. My favorite of the bunch is 'A Good Marriage'. King does a great job establishing the feel of the relationship, given from the POV of the wife, and then leading us to her discovery that changes everything. This was such an eerie moment because of its possibility in real life. I'm sure it has actually happened in one way or another. What would go through your mind at that moment? And then what woul [...]

  • Edward Lorn

    It’s safe to say that, by today’s standards, Stephen King’s novellas are actually novels. Especially his horror novellas. When you have publishers considering 35,000 words “novel length”, it makes you wonder what the actual difference is between a novel and a novella and whether or not the distinction will make a lot of difference in the coming years. Buddy of mine, Gregor Xane, thinks novellas suit horror just fine, that they are the perfect length to bring on the scares and then GTFO [...]

    After the doorstopper that was Under The Dome Stephen King came with this volume of four tales, all much more restrained in scope and quieter in terms of narrative than the story of Chester Mill. This does not mean that they lack emotion, intensity and darkness; oh no, the title is very apt. These four tales are some of King's darkest work to date.King one of the few contemporary and succesful practicioners in the vastly ignored field of the short story, but he's probably the sole writer who enj [...]

    Stephen King has been scaring me for almost 40 years. Cars that want to kill. Vengeful underdogs. Crazy fans. Curses. Vampires. Possessed toys. Clowns. You name it -- he's scared me with it. There is just some incredibly demented stuff that pops out of that man's brain. It's his superpower. The last 20 years or so I missed some of his books. I was raising kids, know, adulting. And I missed a lot of great writing by my favorite authors. King included. Now that my kids are older (and, [...]

    I flipping love Stephen King. He just has this way of getting to the nitty-gritty of things, their soul or heart or whatever you want to call it. Whatever it is that makes it it, that's what King puts on paper and then shares with the world. It both fascinates me and humbles me, because I can't see life in the way that King apparently does. It makes me feel small, actually, because the scope of the understanding that King seems to have is amazing to me. I think I'm a well-read, intelligent perso [...]

  • Beatriz

    Me encantó. No he leído tanto de S. King como para decir que es mejor o peor que sus otras obras, pero si hay que reconocer algo es que le va muy bien con los cuentos y relatos cortos: justos, precisos y tan ágiles que es casi imposible que en algún momento pierdas el interés (como sí me ha pasado con algunos de sus otros libros más extensos).La línea argumental de al menos tres de las historias, se basa en el “y si no hubiera…” de los personajes principales, dejando plasmado cómo [...]

  • Michael

    In the afterward of "Full Dark, No Stars," Stephen King says that the four stories collected here go into some dark corners. And he's not kidding. Easily one of his darkest collections ever, the stories are all still vintage King, looking at ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances. There are no happy endings here, but instead some fascinating, page-turning stories that will linger with you long after you're done reading. (I know I'm sure still haunted by aspects of many of them. [...]

  • Kathryn

    I see why this collection is titled, "Full Dark, No Stars." This is a collection of four short stories or novellas, or five if you have the bonus story 'Under the Weather.' I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't read it, but I will say these stories are dark. They make you question what you would do in these situations, or at least they made me question what I would do. The bonus story, 'Under the Weather' was my least favorite. There was something about it, and I can't quite p [...]

    No. 42 in my King reading project. To be finished any year now, providing the man stops outputting new ones in the pace he normally does (not that I would want him to).If the last one, Just After Sunset, was surprisingly good (don't ask why I have low expectations on the newer books, I really can't say why), this was surprisingly great! While the last one was a horror short story collection in the vein of Graveyard Shift or Skeleton Crew, this is very much sharing properties and feel of Differen [...]

  • FrancoSantos

    Muy buen libro de relatos de King. Este fue el primer libro que leí de él, así que le tengo un cariño especial. 1922: El cuento que más me gustó de esta novela. Es muy fuerte y en él King explora las profundidades del corazón humano y de cuánto somos capaces por esconder un secreto y lo mucho que éste nos contamina y nos perturba dentro nuestro. Es el más pesado, eso tengo que admitirlo, sin embargo no por eso malo. Es excelente. Camionero Grande: Es una muy buena historia, también. [...]

    3 1/2 stars, about which, more later.Steve King has abandoned the supernatural in favor of something even creepier: REALITY. Do you really know what evil lurks inside that person curled up next to you in bed? Or that gray-haired, seemingly benign librarian? Or the guy who's been your best buddy since childhood? Or YOU, for that matter? King takes on these questions here in three novellas and one short-ish story. In Big Driver, Tess is the author of the cozy and bland Willow Grove Knitting Societ [...]

    So I decided to bump Full Dark, No Stars up my tbr list after my friend Johann gave it a glowing review, and after reading it I can confirm (for probably the 2721st time) that she has amazing taste and that we are bookish soulmates! THIS. COLLECTION. IS. FANTASTICIt's made up of four novellas, which for me is great already because I'm not a huge fan of the super short short story; I like to have at least 70 pages to be able to get my teeth into the plot, engage with the characters, feel connecte [...]

  • Dustin Crazy little brown owl

    Part of the title says "No Stars" but damn it, I'm giving Full Dark, No Stars - 5 stars! This book was amazing - every story and the afterword as well, is 5 star quality. This is without a doubt, my favorite book I've read by Stephen King (not that I've read all that many) but still it's quite an impressive collection. I absolutely loved this volume and highly recommend it. Would you make the same decision as the main character in each story? Read & ask yourself :-)From the opening story, 19 [...]

  • Kealan Burke

    Atrocious cover aside (even if I’m dumb and missing something greatly significant about a minimalistic cover with a woman making the figure nine on it, it’s still terrible), the title of Stephen King’s latest book is perfect. Full Dark, No Stars, ladies and gentleman, is one bleak book. And though King is no stranger to grim subject matter, when it comes to his novella collections, I think this is the darkest one yet. There are no stars. There’s little hope either. Some, but not much. On [...]

  • Trudi

    These four novellas do not add up to the best thing Stephen King has ever written, but lordy lordy, do these tales rip and roar, shimmy and jive. I had the best time reading them.The title really sets up the collection well - make no mistake, these are dark tales, in places gruesome and hard to read. All of these stories feature ordinary characters forced to make awful choices. What choices! These choices resonate with power because they don't relate to the supernatural in any way (except for th [...]

    Ages ago I read two stories by King: “Chattery Teeth” (which I persist in remembering as “Clackety Teeth,”) and “You Know They Got a Hell of a Band,” both from Nightmares and Dreamscapes. The stories stayed with me, but I don't recall reading anything else by King for many years, until a couple of years ago when I read The Gunslinger, whereupon I fell head over heels and went on a King-binge which included the rest of The Dark Tower series, Duma Key (the audiobook,) and the Marvel Co [...]
