I only checked this book out to read the novella "The Body" based on my favorite movie of all time, Stand By Me. The details were really good, and I liked the whole story overall.

I always loved Stephen King's short stories. This batch is definitely something to check out. My favorites are Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption and The Body. OMG, absolutely LOVED Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption. Its so realistically written and the plot just flows along so smoothly, the tone is great and the main characters felt so real, I loved them. I saw the movie based on 'The Body' before reading the story but it did not stop me from enjoying it. It goes deeper into the boys' lives than the movie does and amazingly written from a teenager's point of view. Overall, a great short story collection.

This was a great book. I've seen alot of his movies, but this was the first book of his I've ever read. I never knew that he wrote the stories for some of those movies. Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank redemption was amazing! I'm renting the movie =] I loved the character for Defresne. Apt Pupil threw me for a loop at first lol, forgot i was reading King. It was a pretty amazing story. Both of the characters drove me crazy, although at times I had compassion for the old man. He just wanted to be left alone and the kid re-awakened things he'd put behind him. The body was amazingly written. It almost made you feel like those boys were a lot older at times. I was sad to hear how things turned out for their futures though. The Breathing method, had a slow start, and i'll admit I had a little trouble getting into it. But once it picked up, man I wasn't expecting that. Creepy imagery, but i'm glad King didn't disappoint =] Also, I loved how he managed to tie the stories together ^_^

At the risk of sounding like a lunatic—or offending the author—I find much of King’s work to be rather charming. My favorite thing about his books isn’t the horror aspect (though I consider it a definite plus). The reason I come back to King is his portrayal of the characters he writes about—their friendships and mortal enemies, loves/hates, personal demons, and journeys.

This is a great collection of short stories. Apt Pupil, the Body (Stand by Me), and Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption are all Stephen king at his best!
