In "The Langoliers," a handful of people fall alseep on an airplane...they then wake up in a world without life, still in the plane. It is full of great characterization and suspense, along with a few twists! A personal favorite.

In "Secret Window, Secret Garden," a writer, Mort, is accused of plagerism...this story turns into much more than that, however. It's really shocking, and hard to call if you haven't see the movie (Secret Window).

In "The Library Policeman," the main character (can't recall the man) is haunted by his childhood fear of "the library policeman". However, that fear is rational...for the Library Policeman...is real!

In "The Sun Dog," Keven gets a camera with a haunting effect..it has the picture of a a dog slowly moving. Very haunting and creeping, with a masterful ending!!!!

"Four Past Midnight" is a collection of novellas that are all amazing. HOWEVER, please note that the reader must be able to stretch his mind in all cases, as many of the stories are unrealistic.

However, all of them are really horror and truly amazing. GO STEPHEN KING!

Another Stephen King masterpiece. All 4 stories were very well written. King gives you all the details you need to imagine these characters as if they are real and to see everything happening. Even if you've seen the movie "Secret Window" staring Johnny Depp I strongly urge you to read this. His books are 100% better than any of the movies of his work (even though Johnny Depp did an outstanding job in his role of Mort Rainey).

This is a good read. No doubt about it that King is one of the greatest writers of his genre.
The first two stories "THE LANGOLIERS" and "SECRET WINDOW, SECRET GARDEN" are great stories. However, "The Sun Dog" seems a bit sloppy in the story plot. King didn't even bother to craft it more delicately. He seemed just tried to make it to the print.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story collection contains four tales spun from the "colorful" mind of Stephen King:

The Langoliers: Probably the most innovative and mind-boggling of the four, dealing with a plane-load of passengers that starts to experience some strange phenomena. Very unique, exciting, and not unlike an episode of The Twilight Zone.

Secret Window, Secret Garden: Today's generation will know this title from the Johnny Depp film of roughly the same name, about a solitary writer visted by a strange man claiming to have "stole his story". Contains a mind-blowing ending that you won't see coming.

The Library Policeman: Easily the strangest story in the binding, about a library patron who has been around a lot longer than she lets one. One of those stories that really digs deep into the abscesses of King's mind.

The Sun Dog: Perhaps the weakest story of the bunch, yet still engrossing enough to keep you turning pages as a Polaroid photograph shows of glimpse of something far beyond darkroom chemicals.

Overall, this is a top-notch story collection that will compell you to keep reading at every chapter break. What more can one ask for?!

I was impressed with Secret Window. I have seen the movie so was expecting it to follow it exactly which it did for the most part. There are things missing from the book and I like that. But I think I enjoy the book better.

I saw this movie a few weeks ago, and I thought it was good enough that I decided to buy this book. So far, I've read "The Langoliers" and I'm almost finished with "Secret Window, Secret Garden." So far, I'm loving this book.

Four more tales of terror from the undisputed master, Stephen King. As always, nobody does it better--though newcomer John Robert Marlow's NANO is (in a different way) equally terrifying. Can't wait to see the movies!
