This review is from: Four Past Midnight (Signet) (Mass Market Paperback)
the style in all these stories are very melancholical to be SK. sun dog has a ok idea. the suspenceful part is carried out nicely, but there isn't enough "glow". a boy gets a camera. something is wrong with the photos. they show an angry dog. that can't be harmless. the story is simply never more than good. in Secret window, secret garden a writer is suddenly harrassed by a man claiming that he's taken his story. the man turnes out to be a little more dangerous than first figured, and the writer is forced to take precautions. but the man won't go away... the dulles story, sometimes not even interesting. is only written on the plain suspence- level, and it's not great there either.
the langoliers has agood story. passengers on a plane wakes up finding most of the eithers gone. what's happened. they seem to be stuck somewhere they've never been before. i won't give away more. it's interesting read, has a lot of atmosphere. perhaps the best idea in this collection. has some lovely ideas and details.
in Library policeman, a man borrows a book that disappears. but the librarian won't accept that. the man has to face something not quite human. something that lives of fears. the man has to find out what's going on, digging in the town's past. a dark history concerning the library. good idea. great descriptions. some of the details were a little bit far out for me. i also think the story should have been built differently. but it's a good story.
