!!> PDF ✯ In the Tall Grass (English Edition) ⚣ Autore Stephen King – Collateralloan.co

I ll preface this by noting that I m a horror fan, but I ve always been hit or miss with King s novels I m working my way through The Shining again, which was creepy but not scary to me the first go around.I don t need to explain the plot here as everyone else has, but it does take an awfully long time to get to the action after pages and pages of confusion for a short story, and when we do, it s not so much scary but sad The idea of what they re eating SHOULD illicit fear and disgust but it just felt desperate Then it ends abruptly I ve perhaps been desensitized to horror since it s my favorite genrebut I really did want to like this Not a bad read but a tad boring.

Cal and Becky are siblings in every sense of the word Their parents jokingly call them Mike and Ike, as they think alike, a shared, unbreakable kinship It is this commonality that makes them both want to enjoy complete silence on the cross country drive they embark upon The leisurely quiet is the only reason they hear a child calling out for help Stopping the car in a church parking lot, they realize the boy s cries are coming from a field across the road The field is thick with tall grass reaching upwards of six feet or Cal and a pregnant Becky trudge through the tall grass in hopes of rescuing the boy The horror that ensues not only bears the Master of Horror, Stephen King s, signature, but also Joe Hill s King s son, and author of The Fireman Cal runs through the grass in search of the boy, but one moment the boy s voice is to the right, and then to the left A second voice calls out, the boy s mother, advising them to stay away Cal and Becky can only see the road by jumping high in the air and catching a glimpse above the grass, an unwise feat for Becky Cal knows they have only ventured into the grass about one hundred feet, but the view from above the grass inexplicably shows them to be much farther away In the Tall Grass by Stephen King and Joe Hill is a combination of mind boggling horror and gritty gore that King and Hill do best The story contains shades of both N, and The Tommyknockers, and brilliantly continues the theme of terror from the unknown A quick, fast paced read from beginning to end, In the Tall Grass is sure to become a hit for those who favor King s off and on penchant for breaking boundaries The story is a shocker The fear of the unexpected is real The ending leaves the reader wanting. I can now add a permanent fear of tall grass to my list of phobias Thanks a lot Mr King But actually, I knew what I was getting into venturing into a Stephen King book, all be it a short one That s only in pages, not the fear factor it induces It s like a creeping sense of dread that slowly coils tighter around your throat as you read I wanted to scream at the characters to warn them, much like you do with a decent horror movie Please never make this into a horror movie, that one scene, I shudder to forget it Great job by two fine talented authors. When fellow readers tell me they don t like Stephen King, it s the full on horror of Cujo or Pet Semetary they are thinking of They might enjoy something like 11 22 63 if they would give it chance This story, written by King and his son, author Joe Hill, is back to the classic horror of King s most shocking and gruesome books It has a plot that echoes Scott Smith s novel The Ruins in several respects, involving unsuspecting citizens being drawn in by an Ancient Evil In short, it was a way to pass the time better than some, not as satisfying as others. Mi aspettavo qualcosa di diverso, pi da lui Si sente forte la presenza di un altro scrittore nella scrittura e nello svolgimento della storia Il tenore di gore e splatter insolitamente per stephen king mal dosato e il risultato complessivo non all altezza della sua produzione L anteprima del nuovo di King promette qualcosa di altro livello Speriamo bene. Stephen King is Stephen KingI adore the way he writes but then I end up wanting only the bestI m gonna stick to his novels and leave out the short stories
