Whole Dark, No Stars

Sophie King requires no start. A legend in the genre of horror tales, his short stories have thrilled and scared legions of ardent readers. The films based on his works have turned into conspiracy hits many every one pays homage to 1 of the terrifying writers on earth.

Anytime I would recommend a book to a known acquaintance, I actually usually state several reasons behind doing so. There can be cases where my taste may differ from others and so their helpful to clear that up with them before driving my wise talk down their throats.

This publication ” Full Dark, 0 % Stars” is an deposition of brief stories composed down by Stephen Ruler.Though I really have read a few of his works only a few have established my body into a nervous state, We still consider Stephen California king as a prolific copy writer of horror stories who should be read by all in order to get that rustic preference of fear that is absent in the works of all other writers.


This reserve really freaked me out when I read it for the first time and I haven’t felt this way before. The stories in this collection are difficult, brash with no sugar linings. It is merely plain old scary stories that come to haunt you back again again and again.

The afterword mentions the following, “the stories in this book are tough. You may find them hard to read in places”.

My favorite is 1922

A person kills his wife over land and that’s just the start and a fraction of the horrors in this tale. Killing his partner is merely the beginning as the events that follow later are chilling as the man faces incidents this individual could never imagine in his wildest dreams.

My own conclusion is that these shorts are superbly dark, they appear to creep with darkness and are a few of the most brutal reports you will read – Stephen King is back.
