I THINK THIS IS A DOUBLE TAKE,I NEED TO START OVER. THE TALL GRASS MADE NO SINCE..THE ONLY GOOD THING IT'S A SHORT BOOK.I JUST KNOW KING IS'NT THAT BAD.I'LL LET YOU JUDGE FOR YOURSELF.THE NEXT TIME I LISTEN AND I THINK IT'S BETTER I'LL CHANGE THE REVIEW..
Yes. The direction and the actors' execution achieved something far greater than what I could have interpreted through my imagination.
My favorite scene was when the husband first meets the black rock. And I think that this scene really showed the synergies between the this once in a generation opportunity for a father-and-son team comprised of two of the greatest living horror writers to use their obvious like-mindedness to create something really wonderful. And I hope they continue to write together. Stephen King does a masterful job creating characters who find themselves in a supernatural situation. The set up is always superb. But when it comes to the down and dirty manifestation of the supernatural, his stories are usually quite ethereal on the subject. Bag of Bones was awesome, but the depiction of what the supernatural creatures were was actually quite murky.Joe Hill does an excellent job painting a practical depiction of normal (an not so normal) people who find themselves in supernatural situations. 20th Century Ghosts is one of the best books of short horror precisely because Mr. Hill's characters react with such a frank honesty to truly weird situations that have very little predicate explanation.This story was the perfect merger of the "edge of your seat" set up that Stephen King is famous for, followed by a supernatural climax that addressed all of the very practical aspects of their situation, and in a way that the reader can really identify not only with the characters, but through their actions, understand the supernatural force they encounter.
What a disappointment. Pointless. I was irritated the entire time I was listening...I kept waiting for something to happen, for something to matter. I love Stephen King, but this was awful.
No. I had an overall distaste for this story. The characters went against human nature and there was some very distasteful content. I suspect that was part of the point, but I didn't find it so much disturbing as just a little pointless.
I don't give spoilers, but there was content that I think was meant to be disturbing, but was more just pointless.
No, never. Glad it wasn't a novel, I wouldn't have gotten far.
I am usually a fan of Steven King, but this one I really felt I wasted my time on. It was a bit of a shock, because I don't think I've ever said that about the books I've read or listened to. The performance was fine, it was the material.
The premise—a simple stand of tall roadside grass that baffles and captures those who are lured into it—is a good one. Novels have been based on less. This short story almost felt like the outline of a novel, and as such, it seems incomplete. A lot of things happen, but we are given little understanding of why.
The narration was very well. If you are not able to read for yourself this is the way to go. However, reading for myself is always my preferrence
This was perfect the way it is
unable to answer this question. It was equal in the characters
As a fan of both authors,I was looking forward to reading this book. It was well written and the characters were likable. The story was just okay, bordering on unimaginative.
It was fast pasted and got to the point. I loved how creepy it was.
When the girl woke up out of her daze from having the baby and her brother was chewing on her baby's leg. And she thought it was a doll leg.
The little boy
The short story is twisted. I loved it.
yes, a good combination from both imaginations
it was creepy little story
ooh, no movie!
If you watch the Walking Dead, you can listen to this creeply little story.
I know that SK won't read this, but this is a plead to him.
Please just write a solo project. No more collaborations with other authors because it's not your writing anymore. It is someone else's with you as a pen name. Please just write a novel, short story, article, with the terror and horror that we all know. No more coauthors projects, please.
I have been reading your material for years and have listened to all of your books, but your recent short stories have been very disappointing. You are starting to loose me as a Constant Reader.
As for In the Tall Grass, save your money, and wait until it's included in a set of novellas.
