The Long Walk
AuthorRichard Bachman
If this book does not make you feel physical pain, I don't know what will.

This isn't a book about killer clowns or haunted hotels. It's not a Hunger Games type of book, despite the "game show" element of the Long Walk, nor is it a world attached to any tower, Dark or not. This book is in-your-face...

AuthorStephen King
**4.5-stars rounded up**

A bizarrely assembled cast of characters come together to fight an evil, older and more powerful than they ever could have imagined.

That would be my single-sentence synopsis if someone were to ask me what Desperation is about.

If you have...
Gerald's Game
AuthorStephen King

I've re-read Gerald's Game several times since its 1992 publication, and have just finished listening to it as an audiobook. Here's what I know for sure:

AuthorStephen King
( Spoiler Free Review)

Well, it's been a few years since I finished reading The Dark Tower Series and I have decided to share a few thoughts. First of all, I have to say that this was a massive undertaking from Stephen King and he didn't disappoint ( well, until I got to the ending anyway...) The books...
The Regulators

The Breathing Method
AuthorJohn Escott
From what I'd heard, or rather read, through my friend's reviews, that this novella isn't that great: I would partially disagree. Stephen King is such a skillful writer: he can make any ordinary story sound incredible; and not everyone can do that. It's true, I agree, that the story, at first, doesn't...
