Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When first confronted by John Shooter, famous novelist Mort Rainey sees him as nothing more than an avid, albeit slightly eccentric, fan. However, Shooter's accusation of plagiarism and his overbearing attitude of malevolence send Rainey scattering to prove his innocence. As Rainey's evidence disappears, his sanity and safety go along with it, and soon he is approaching a reckoning with the determined Shooter. Besides a few audible page turns, James Woods offers a compelling reading, eliciting the stress and anxiety building up in Rainey as he comes unraveled. There's a slightly whiny pitch to Woods's voice that also makes him a good match for Rainey. This 1991 recording (of a novella taken from King's Four Past Midnight) is making its belated debut on CD after 17 years, and throughout it has the recognizable light background hiss of an older recording.

Wow this story scared the crap out of me. Stephen King certainly knows what words to use to scare someone. The story was amazing and the ending was suprisng. To tell you the truth I didn't like one of the characters, the ex wife. Thought she was a pain. But this story was totally worth the money. If you are unsure try to find it at your local library, but if your into scary stories then you should buy it. Well thats it I hope everyone gives it a chance because this story is great!! :)

Raading horror leads a reader to "exciting fear" in general .But king brought up a new frame in this one , better discribed as confusion.For king as a writer himself draws the soul of "mart" , a fully disturbed man(who wrote 6 best-selling novels) trying to accomplish the truth.On the other hand stands an illusion of an exsisting "jhon shooter" accusing "mart" for stealin' his novel.the plot is powerfull enough not to put the book down.The way "mart" thinks to reach for analysis will make your head ache already. the end is a masterpice itself.One of King's best.Perfectly illustrated.

the thing that really amazes me so much, is that in EVERY story, after you've read three pages, the personality of the person the story goes about is perfectly clear and stays exactly the same during the rest of the book. As is the case with Mort. And Mr. Shooter. I think mister king should receive a Nobel prize for his work. I mean it. In fact, he should recieve a subscription on the nobel prize so he recieves a price each year. I rest my case.

I had read this story some years ago, but found it probably more entertaining this time. I consider this story a bit of a departure for King, because it almost reads as much like a mystery as a thriller, but leave no doubt, this one not only thrills, it chills—to the bone. All the characters are well crafted and this is King at his best.

SPOILER ALERT!
I'll keep this one short and sweet. I really liked this story. I have not yet read The Dark Half, so, I don't know how close it is to that, but I really thought this was a good example of a story that very subtly leads you (along with the main character) down the path of madness. So subtly, in fact, that you (like the story's protagonist) don't really see what's happening until you get toward the end and turn around and look back at what you've just been through. I liken it to The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, in that respect (and forgive me if I'm mistaken here, it's been years since I read that one).
So why 4 out of 5 stars? I gotta tell you, I didn't like the supernatural element thrown in at the very end (the hat and letter found by the ex-wife). I thought this story would be much more effective (scary) if it was all simply Mort's doing. Otherwise, a good read.
