    My favorite was The Good Marriage, followed by Big Driver, then 1922, the Fair Extension.

    I enjoyed all the stories. I must say, Fair Extensions was THE most disturbing to me. Fair Extensions just...messed with my head.

    Streeter enjoying all the grief his best friend was going through and gloating and relishing the fact that it was all due to him, Streeter.

    I believe it is the darkest reading yet by King. I enjoyed it very much. I guess I would pick 1922.

    I have to admit--I got to a point where I wanted to opt out--it kind of just went on and on and on and on....so much human misery.

    Fair Extension, The Good Marriage and Big Driver were tied, and then 1922. Maybe I have a sadistic streak (well, probably), but haven't we all known people like that? They could fall into a pile of sh*t and end up smelling of roses, and others could fall into the roses and smell like fertilizer. Kind of fun to see it turned around. I know, I know, probably time for a trip to the therapist's couch, right?

    It would be difficult to point to any one story and say "Yup, that was my favorite. At the moment I'd lean toward 'A Good Marriage' but if asked later I might name another. After finishing them all, I initially was less than overwhelmed. But since then I've read a book of novellas by another horror writer who I'll choose not to name, and none of his stories were even in the same realm as King's. So now as I look back on FDNS, I can say it was great. Glad I have it on audio so I can listen through it again soon.

    For me: Fair Extension is tops followed closely by 1922. Good Marriage and then Big Driver. Fair Extension was fantastic. I am fascinated by the dark side of humanity...so much closer to us than we care to realize.

    I really enjoyed 1922.....It set the tone for the rest of the book. One of the many things that I like about The Masters work is his ability to create the environment, in this case, Nebraska during the depression. It all seemed so accurate.
