Review: Full Dark, No Stars

Full Dark, No Stars
Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again Stephen King has held me mesmerized. This collection of stories was something a little different, dark tales that look at the horror of human nature, and the lengths some people will go to cover up or get even for a crime.

All four stories look at life from a different perspective and each one is just as dark, macabre and hard to read as the others.

What I love about this book, wasn’t just the stories, it wasn’t the bonus story I got in my copy, but the small dialogue that King added to the end. A common theme in his works, as I am sure you all know. It was only a few pages, but it was spoken from the heart and got me thinking.

Out of all of the stories, I think the final one was possibly the darkest. I won’t give it away, but it was the only tale of the two that had a… shall we say ‘happy ending’ but it was ambiguous enough to make you think. Is it really.
