Book Review: Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

Hello everyone.Today I finished reading Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King. This book contains four story stories that all have one thing in common. Hope you enjoy this review:

Plot: A new collection of four never-before-published stories from Stephen King. 1922 The story opens with the confession of Wilfred James to the murder of his wife, Arlette, following their move to Hemingford, Nebraska onto land willed to Arlette by her father. Big Driver Mystery writer, Tess, has been supplementing her writing income for years by doing speaking engagements with no problems. But following a last-minute invitation to a book club 60 miles away, she takes a shortcut home with dire consequences. Fair Extension Harry Streeter, who is suffering from cancer, decides to make a deal with the devil but, as always, there is a price to pay. A Good Marriage Darcy Anderson learns more about her husband of over twenty years than she would have liked to know when she stumbles literally upon a box under a worktable in their garage.

Review: These stories contained some of the most gruesome tales I have ever read, but at the same time I enjoyed reading them because I have never read anything by Stephen King and because if these stories I wish to read more of what this amazing man has created. This book starts in 1922 with a farmer named Wilf and this book ends with a woman that can't believe what she has found out about her husband. The writing was interesting in some stories and a bit boring in others, but I did enjoy reading every character from each story. My favorite story was the last called Good Marriage because of the gripping words that Stephen makes and how the wife deals with the truth about this man she thought she loved. Over all I give these four amazing stories a 4/5.
