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.

I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
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..
This is the kind of Stephen King story I love. Scary and suspenseful from beginning to end. The endings of his more recent novels fall flat for me although I love the journey along the way. This one is 'open mouth wide' horror. Loved it!
I have enjoyed several of Joe Hill's stories and numerous King stories. I enjoyed the father son collaboration. The story flowed very well, you couldn't tell that two different minds were writing the story. I was entertained and finished rather quickly. The narrator was good.
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.
I love ALL Stephen King Novels...Cant rank them, they are all GOOD
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
King has a way of making the ordinary.... extraordinary
On Mile 81...Keep the windows up and the radio on
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.
I absolutely loved this story. Crafty writing that shows how talented Stephen King and his son Joe Hill are at writing modern horror.

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