    One of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain is a masterpiece that is at once an enthralling adventure, a stirring love story, and a luminous evocation of a vanished America in all its savagery, solitude, and splendor.

    M. Dunn says: "Cold Mountain (Unabridged)"
    "Watch the movie"
    Overall

    I'm not usually one to watch the film first, however, in my defence, I had never planned on reading the book. In the end I enjoyed the film so much I couldn't wait to read the book as I expected it be even more enjoyable. Not the case. The film was very faithful to the overall story and even more dramatic and (dare I say, romantic) than the book was. While I didn't dislike the book, reading it didn't add anything to my overall experience of the film. This is one instance where watching the film was actually more enjoyable.

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Parusski says: "Eerie, honest, frightening!"
    "Stephen King at his best."

    The gritty short stories in this book are fantastic. I've long thought that his short stories far outshine his novels and this collection doesn't disappoint. There are no happy endings here!
