One of the most unsettling tales King has written. That feeling of wrongness embraces the entire story and feels a bit connected to It. Also has a strange connection to Needful Things. It is my favorite of the quartet of novella in Four Past Midnight and makes me hesitate every time I go to my local library.

A very scary story!

I found this story was extremely captivating, yet also disturbing. As captivating as it was, I literally (no pun intended ) had to put the book down several times.

I found this novela to be more disturbing then scary, like chapter 13 and how Dave kept having sex with ardelia lortz even after he found out what see was and had even seen what she was, was pretty gross. A good read thought.

This novella is genuinely terrifying. Prior to reading it, I had not heard much about The Library Policeman. The two novellas in Four Past Midnight, that I knew of, were The Langoliers and Secret Window, Secret Garden. I was very surprised at how scary this story is. In all honesty, I was a little uncomfortable visiting my local library after reading this (=

This story really shocked me, it's dark, disturbing and most of all, introduced a new kind of monster a real threat for kids.

Would like to get a hard copy of this book, not the audio. My 12 year old grandson buys books and borrows from the library as well. His parents who are very poor received a collection notice regarding library books not returned to the amount of $85. My grandson, who has a paper route, had to pay the fine. Not sure what happened to all the books borrowed. Would like to send my grandson, who also writes books, a copy of this book. I am sure he would enjoy it.

I think this short story defines King. Could not put it down, and smiled the whole time reading it; the atmosphere and the dialogue was outstanding, especially Ardelia Lortz. She initially reminded of JK Rowling's 'Dolores Jane Umbridge' [after the initial encounter], but it turned out she was a fear sucking, insect like, child killing nymphomaniac... who knew?? In the genre, this was up there with Salem's Lot. One of his best.
