Terrible....

by Habib on 5/7/2002

The stories seem forced and pointless. This was a total disappointment especially coming from King (who I regard as the Master). Although the ideas he had were intriguing, they didn't translate very well when put on paper.

Product Overview

Writing about encounters with the dead, about near death, or about the plain dread of mundane life, King is in top form in this collection of dark tales--his first in nine years. Includes three never-before-printed stories and four pieces previously published in "The New Yorker."

From the Publisher:
The first collection of stories Stephen King has published since Nightmares & Dreamscapes nine years ago, Everything's Eventual includes one O. Henry Prize winner, two other award winners, four stories published by The New Yorker, and Riding the Bullet, King's original e-book, which attracted over half a million online readers and became the most famous short story of the decade.

Riding the Bullet, published here on paper for the first time, is the story of Alan Parker, who's hitchhiking to see his dying mother but takes the wrong ride, farther than he ever intended. In Lunch at the Gotham Café, a sparring couple's contentious lunch turns very, very bloody when the maître d' gets out of sorts. 1408, the audio story in print for the first time, is about a successful writer whose specialty is Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Graveyards or Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Houses, and though Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel doesn't kill him, he won't be writing about ghosts anymore. And in That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is In French, terror is déjà vu at 16,000 feet.

Whether writing about encounters with the dead, the near dead, or about the mundane dreads of life, from quitting smoking to yard sales, Stephen King is at the top of his form in the fourteen dark tales assembled in Everything's Eventual. Intense, eerie, and instantly com-pelling, they announce the stunningly fertile imagination of perhaps the greatest storyteller of our time.

About the Author:
Stephen King is the author of more than forty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. Among his most recent are Dreamcatcher, On Writing, Hearts in Atlantis, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Bag of Bones, The Green Mile, and Black House with Peter Straub. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.
