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.

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.
In a small, peaceful town on the Equator, the sun always sets at 6, and a good audiobook is always the perfect evening companion.
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.
Putting books on the back burner.
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.
