Margaret Simon, almost 12, likes long hair, tuna fish, the smell of rain, and things that are pink. She's just moved from New York City to Farbrook, New Jersey, and is anxious to fit in with her new friends -- Nancy, Gretchen, and Janie. When they form a secret club to talk about private subjects like boys, bras, and getting their first periods, Margaret is happy to belong.

Daniel Martin has never forgotten his childhood encounters with Frank Watkins, the man who built his family a summer home out of cardboard and plywood. Frank's gaze was oddly confusing, as if he was attempting to discern the proper way to behave because he didn't know how to respond in a human manner. Since Frank obviously wasn't an alien, young Daniel thought maybe the man was crazy. In the end, Daniel would learn the terrifying truth about Frank Watkins. And as an adult, Daniel is about to discover there are more of them out there.

An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

A melhor história é a lida os Kate q já leu Fireman e a de Natal. Mas nao é de terror mas de ficção. Das outras, a melhor é a primeira. As outras duas são um drama e uma ficção científica.

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.

Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974, 12-year-old Gwendy Peterson has taken the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zigzag up the cliffside. At the top of the stairs, Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground. One day a stranger calls to Gwendy: "Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me."

Would you consider the audio edition of Gwendy's Button Box to be better than the print version?

Não consigo imaginar um livro de King tão curtinho assim, por isso, acredito que o o audio seja muito melhor.

What did you like best about this story?

A narração de Maggie Siff é primorosa e ela sabe sair do papel de narradora para o da protagonista com muita naturalidade, quase como se fosse uma daquelas pessoas que falam de si mesma na terceira pessoa.

Which scene was your favorite?

(Spoiler) A cena em que ela manda Frank apodrecer no inferno e ele literalmente apodrece em sua frente. Dá para imaginar ele apodrecendo queimando...

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

Quando você tem o poder ao alcance dos dedos suas mãos, o que você faria com ele?

Any additional comments?

No final do livro, há mais uma história de 11 minutinhos de King sobre um casal de hábitos estranhos na Grande Depressão que tomou os EUA em 1929 e uma conversa entre os autores falando de sua colaboração. Não é terror sanguinolento, mas um bom conto de realidade fantástica,mas mesmo assim tá valendo. Compraria de novo, mesmo sendo curtinha (2h30) e a historinha de bônus e a conversa dos autores ainda foram duas boas surpresas.
