Publisher's Summary

Mile 81 meets "N." in this collaboration between Stephen King and Joe Hill.

As USA Today said of Stephen King's Mile 81: "Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?" In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.

    Story
    "Boring"

    A lot of other reviewers were shocked by the twist. It's not shocking. It's a parody of itself. Overall it had no value as entertainment, but if your vehicle is loud this makes good white noise.

    "Great Mystery"

    This story is confusing if you don't listen closely. It's the kind of story that keeps you interested. Some times I felt like I was on the edge of my seat! Love this book!!

    "Creepy but Good story"
    Where does In the Tall Grass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love ALL Stephen King Novels...Cant rank them, they are all GOOD


    What other book might you compare In the Tall Grass to and why?

    Horns by Joe Hill. Both stories involve something 'weird' happening in the middle of innocent looking fields/woods that no one would believe could happen


    What does Stephen Lang bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    King has a way of making the ordinary.... extraordinary


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    On Mile 81...Keep the windows up and the radio on

    "A short story"

    Big fan of both authors and even though it's a short story it wasn't a butt kicked. Not worth the cost. Spend a few more to get either guy's full length novels.

    "Awesome original horror story!!!"

    I absolutely loved this story. Crafty writing that shows how talented Stephen King and his son Joe Hill are at writing modern horror.

    "Ok, but not great"

    Excellent! A good old-fashioned horror story, classic. It is a magnificent piece of storytelling steeped in dread. But, the ending was goofy.

    "Wonderfully Horrid"
    Any additional comments?

    This reminded me of some of Mr. King's earlier work, such as Graveyard Shift from the Night Shift collection, and why I fell in love with his gift for telling short stories. I found it raw (in the best sense) and that it hits you right in stomach with the well-crafted, albeit gory, imagery.

    Stephen King plus Joe Hill, yikes! Even though it is a bit predictable you can't stop listening. Really creepy idea.
