Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on April 21, 2020
First, I should explain that I ordered this in OCTOBER 2019, but Amazon's out of stock, and never shipped it. So I had to drive to K-Mart to buy a copy. Makes me wonder what's the point in advance-ordering a book from Amazon and they don't order enough to fill orders. Are they filling them in the order in which they receive them? Since this was an advance order, it seems to me that they should know exactly how many books to order, but apparently not: I'll be going to the local Kmart to get books I need.

That said, these are four solid stories. King's a consummate storyteller, and each is an entirely different kind of story. There's something for everyone, and these shorter stories (novellas, actually) take up far less time than one of his long novels, which are a major investment in time.

Longtime King fans will appreciate the reappearance of Holly Gibney, one of King's most interesting characters. She was in the Bill Hodges trilogy, and OUTSIDER, and now this collection. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of her.
