Review: Four stories, all of them unforgettable. The stories included are: 1922, Big Driver, A Good Marriage, and Fair Extension.
I think I loved them all equally, but 1922 was the most gruesome, while A Good Marriage was the most completely believable, while Big Driver scared me the most. I understand that Big Driver and A Good Marriage have been made into movies, which I'll probably see very soon. For the most part, I can't watch a movie until I've read the book. There are exceptions, but this is pretty much the rule.
Mr. King is at his best when writing about things that really are partially mundane and partially horrific. In this group of stories, he does it again and I couldn't put the book down for just about the entire weekend.
Rating: 9 / 10
