    Default favorite story in fdns?

    Personally I like Fair Extension, it was the only one that made me laugh at any point. Not saying that the other stories weren't good, but Fair Extension really lightened the mood.

    Second favorite was probably Good Marriage, it was the most interesting. I probably read it the fastest.

    I think A Good Marriage was my favorite, but then I think Big Driver might be the best story, the suspense level was crazy and there was a character named Patsy in it and hey, great name. I agree about Fair Extension's much appreciated moments of comic relief, it was really thought provoking too. But 1922 was really, really creepy probably the scariest story... Awww shoot I don't know I think they are all my favorite. I hate deciding.
    I loved the afterward too.... there's no hope for me.

    For me it was A Good Marriage. Just the idea of your closest loved one hiding such a horrible secret, send chills down my spine just thinking about it. Then it would have to be 1922, then Big Driver with Fair Extension last, but by no means least.

    I am a firm believer in the more words and pages the better in a book so I am not a short story/novella person n'tall BUT BUT these four stories had me from the get go!! Each is special in its own realm.

    Ah, human nature at its best as only Mr. King can tell it to us

    Posting a link to Stephen's publisher is in no way a no-no.

    I thought this collection was terrific. I always think that the more SK, the better, but I'm glad this one only had 4 (well 5 in the PB version) stories in it. I have to agree with footofthehare, my favorite was "Fair Extension" as well. I love that SK is able to write about things that people have thought about but would never actually go through with...at least, most people. I think that "Fair Extension" was placed as the third story to provide comic relief, especially after the suspense of "1922" and "Big Driver." What does everyone think about the order of the stories? Also, why do you think SK titled the book Full Dark, No Stars?

    I've felt it's because the soul of the stories is so dark-there ain't a glimmer of light anywhere...
