Description

Four unforgettable novellas that explore the dark side of human nature from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King.

"Does anybody really know anybody? Before tonight she certainly would have thought so."

In "1922," a violence awakens inside a man when his wife proposes selling off the family homestead, setting in motion a grisly train of murder and madness.

A mystery writer is brutally assaulted in "Big Driver" by a stranger along a Massachusetts back road and plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.

In "Fair Extension," making a deal with the devil not only saves a man from terminal illness but also provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

Finally, the trust forged by more than twenty years of matrimony is irrevocably shattered when a woman makes a chance discovery leading to the horrifying implications of just who her husband really is in "A Good Marriage."

    I've been a far of Stephen King ever since I was a little girl, and I snuck my mom's copy of Night Shift. I read everything he wrote for YEARS, devouring epic tomes like IT and The Stand in little more than a day or two... I couldn't get enough. But I've begun to cherry-pick in more recent years, because I have found myself disappointed with some of his newer work. For this reason I have missed a few books that I was reconsidering and preparing to read... Like this collection of stories , Full Dark, No Stars. That is, until I read the reviews of the politics that Mr. King is apparently injecting into his writing. Now, sadly, I have to regard him the same way I do Brad Pitt or George Clooney... As an over-opinionated celebrity who would be better off remaining neutral if he wants to keep collecting my money.

    Mr. King, why do you have to give us your political views? We don't want to hear that crap. We want to read your stories, that's what you are the best at. If you insist on giving political views, at least once in awhile take a shot at the liberals, God knows there is enough crap, they have done. I really don't expect you to do that, cause liberals never think they are wrong and ALWAYS, blame someone else for the crap that they have caused.

    I'm disappointed that Steven had to make an inappropriate political comment about Sarah Palin. I've lost alot of respect for him. He should only write a stay away from politics, as should all of Hollywood. Keep your opinions to your self. By the way, the head if H&HS's (Sabilious -- sp?) had already put her self into the "Death Panel" debate re: the 10 year old that needed the lung transplant. So please tell Steven to stick to writing and stay out of politics. I for one don't want to hear his opinion
