I whole heartedly agree. The whole way the story progressed and ended just gave me the creeps.In the proper frame of mind, this is simply a perfect story.
It's not so often anymore that reading anything sends an actual, palpable shiver up my spine, but
when Henry says, "Goodbye, mama" to his passed-out mother before he draws the burlap sack over her head
I actually shivered.
I respect that opinion, but I've just got to say that I loved "Fair Extension," and that it was my favorite of the collection. I might be a bit biased because I had a similar idea once, but believe me, I'm glad he wrote it and I did not. Has this been optioned yet? Come to think of it, maybe King should have written a screenplay for this story instead of "A Good Marriage." Might have been a better hybrid-release experiment.So hard to pick a favorite story. I really didn't like Fair Extension as much, but the other three are just perfect King.
I was just thinking the same thing. Boy, oh boy, this could be a good one.1922 was terrific. As a matter of fact, Full Dark No Stars was his best novella collection since Different Seasons. If done right, 1922 could be movie right up there with the likes of Shawshank and Green Mile.
