    "I have been a huge Stephen King fan for years now and this book only made me like his work even more. Each of the short stories is very interesting with a great plot. The stories always offer a good level of spooky which I love in a book. The stories also make you think a little as the writing is not a very easy read. I really loved this book and I think all King fans would too!"

    "Not the greatest of Stephen King stories, but it is a short one and can't be expected to live up to the depth that some of his other works do. It has plenty of suspense and scariness included to keep you interested and on the edge of your seat while you read. Good for a short diversion or a good way to kill a bit of time and give yourself a little taste of dread!"

    "This is one of King's more recent collections of short stories, and is a pretty good collection overall. You really can't go wrong with King's short works, and this is no exception. There's a pretty wide variety of stories and topics in here, and all of them are interesting, though some people may find different ones more or less interesting to them personally. Either way, they're all good quality."

    "This is a short story by Stephen King and I enjoyed it. I love horror films and novels in general so I was looking forward to reading this. King never disappoints in his telling of a horror story either. It's more than likely always scary, it always keeps you on your toes, it makes you wonder what's around every corner, he fills you with anxiety with every page you turn. This book was no different. I started to read it as soon as I received it and never put it down until I was done. "
