I bought this book to read 1408 before seeing the movie... but I am not so sure I want to go to the cinema any longer!!! :o)

I am actually surprised at how much I enjoyed all these short stories. I am starting to think I prefer King in this style! Still got too scared by some of the stories to even think about reading this book before going to bed! :o)

A really good book in my opinion.

Will be sent as an RABCK.

Just received this, what a pleasant surprise! Thanks a lot teuffi *hugs and kisses*

In a strange twist of fate, I almost bought this book last Friday. I had gone to the bookstore on a whim and picked up a load of books before I realised I was spending more than I should. So I stood staring at this book (even the same edition) for a long time, mentally debating whether I should put it back. I thought "King is at his best writing short stories" and almost put it in the basket, but then I thought "I've already read two stories from this collection" and hesitated. After several of these moments when I almost decided to buy it, I finally rejected it in favour of Desperation :-)

My TBR has grown very high, so it may be a while till I finish this.

PS: Nice stamps :-) Once upon a time I also collected stamps.

Brilliant! I've always felt that King is at his best writing short stories, and this is his greatest collection. I'll rate stories like All That You Love Will Be Carried Away and Lunch at the Gotham Cafe up there with the best of greats like O Henry. L.T.'s Theory of Pets and Luckey Quarter are excellent too. Throughout, the narrative is King's signature blend of classical Dickensian storytelling and post-Joyce stream-of-conciousness. However, I found the much-acclaimed The Man in the Black Suit to be the weakest story in the set. What's That Feeling, You Can Only Say It In French gets points for having such a brilliant name, as does All That You Love Will Be Carried Away.

Thanks again to teuffi.
