    1. The Shining 4 stars Extremely well written, such a psychological thriller horror Ending felt a bit off though, but no clue as to how it should have ended.Carrie 3 stars Not as gripping and MC is not very likeable or relatable Still a good read though.Misery 4.5 stars Amazing Couldn t put it down, so scary gross at times it was just plain amazing but not quite 5 stars though, something about the ending, it left me confused even after a reread of last pages.Conclusion Definitely read Stephen King [...]

    2. For me, King is a bit of a mix bag as an author You will either receive something truly wonderful or you will hate the entire experience somehow, he even manages those between stages.With this collection, however, we re given some of his best work Misery Carrie The Shining Three books King is well known for Three books I thoroughly enjoyed If you re going to buy a King collection you cannot go wrong with this one.

    3. Still my favorite Stephen King book of all time The characters are rich and well rounded the imagery is unforgettable, and the suspense is, well, Stephen King Definitely worth a read and a re read

    4. Picked the book up second hand Never been a big Stephen king fan, but it was a very good read on the train Passes the time than keeping me from missing my station.
