5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version--$14.99. The fact there are any versions--priceless., November 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Full Dark, No Stars (Kindle Edition)
Here's my two cents (or my $14.99). These are some of Stephen King's best stories ever, and I've been a fan since I read "Carrie" in Junior High (when is was first published in paperback, kids couldn't afford hardback books back then!). Like most King books, I devoured this one in less than 48 hours. "A Good Marriage" and "Big Driver" are particularly disturbing, maybe because they both have female protaganists whose stories seem very real. Like it or not, Stephen King tells the living s&%# out of a story.

Which brings me the price issue. People are certainly within their rights to bitch about the price of anything-gas,food, education, Ferraris, etc. But for me, fifteen bucks is a small price to pay for something that I really, really enjoy. I spend a lot more on stuff is don't enjoy near as much. I have read and re-read virtually everything King has written. There may come a point in my life when Mr. King dies (morbid, I know, but one of us will go first). Outside of people I actually know, his demise would probably be the only one which would actually leave a personal, lasting void in my life. So I say, live long and prosper, Mr. King. I hope I can give you (or your evil publisher) money for many, many more years.

Oh, and just to make it clear, I will buy the hardback, too. The kindle version is just for convenience.

I have read everything that Stephen King has ever written. Some readers may not care about Kindle pricing but many do. As this is a venue about books, authors,kindle and reviews, it is only fair for readers to vent their issues with pricing as we are supporting all of the above. I will never pay the inflated prices doe ebooks that some authors are asking these days. I do not care how good the book or how much I love the author..

Hi Merry Lynn,
Thanks for your reply. I just hope you got my point: The price is not an issue to me, the fact that the product is available is.

Of course it is fair for readers to vent their issues; I said as much in my review. I never so much as intimated otherwise. You and every other individual are entitled to their opinion. I have no desire to change those opinions. I am only submitting mine.
