Fan submitted reviews of Dolan's Cadillac (Short Story):|

Had this book for a few years now. My teenager has read it, but it took me til two days ago to pull it out and dig in. The part where Robinson begins to work out isn't that detailed but somehow was very visceral for me as King desribed him as eating red meats and greens and in February running every day. Very triggering somehow to begin eating healthy and exercising. I had a similar reaction to 'Thinner' and the main character losing weight. When I got to the part when Dolan's caddy appears on the horizon I had to leave forward to see how many pages were left before the end because my anxiety was so high I was wanting to just 'get it over with'! It was as if I was standing in the desert dust and sand watching Robinson commit the revenge murder. Whew! Great story. Can't wait to start story II tonight!

This, for me, is a real horror story, forget about vampires and monsters they aren't real but what people are capable of doing to one another is a really scary thing, that said i do love the vampire and monster books as well. Stephen King has been entertaining, scaring, and making cry tears of laughter or sorrow since the age of 12 back in the first week of September 1982, and long may it continue.

Loved it! I love a good revenge story and Robinson goes through much more than Charles Bronson ever did.

I made a comment on the storie a while back, and at that time I had not seen the movie and now I have and I would have posted my comment on the film in the movie libray on this website but it does not have DC in it AND IT SHOULD BE (I know those movies that are, are cinema released and this one wasn't but it's the only one of his movies that hasn't and it was better then some of the other ones) this movie KICKED ASS, one of his best Adaps ever, everything about it is great even the song at the end is. I thought the movie was going to be bad (wasn't put out in cinema and didn't appear on website) but the movie was awesome.

Great story! I dont know if you meant it to be but to me it was sort of a homage to Poes "The Cask of Amontillado". But still very original and scary in its own way, huge fan have read about 30 books, not including short stories, but this one always comes to mind. Cant wait for the next one!
