The Stand by Stephen King | Book Review

I was extremely hesitant to start Stephen King's epic novel due to its 1,400+ page count and small font. When COVID-19 hit though, I decided to be masochistic and read it. I'm glad I did, even if it took me two months to finish it. The story sees the U.S. become ravaged by a gruesome… Continue reading The Stand by Stephen King | Book Review

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King | Book Review

The Shining is one of my favorite books by Stephen King, but for some reason I held off on reading this for such a long time. Trepidation that this wouldn't live up to the original novel? Whatever it was, I'm glad I finally rectified the situation. Doctor Sleep is an incredible work of fiction, and I… Continue reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King | Book Review

The Shining by Stephen King | Book Review

The Shining is another fantastic novel by the King (pun intended) of Horror, and I found it more effective in its chills and spook factor than the film version. The story follows the Torrance family as they move to the Overlook hotel during the winter following a scandal caused by the father, Jack. Along with… Continue reading The Shining by Stephen King | Book Review

Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review

This is genuinely one of the most twisted, unique books I've read. Focusing on a sex game gone horribly wrong, this is the story of Jessie Burlingame's struggle to survive. That's not all that's going on, though. Jessie has voices speaking to her, a stray dog who is desperately hungry, and a possibly malevolent presence… Continue reading Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King | Book Review

I went into this novel with a little trepidation. I had heard some people say it was excellent, while others hated this first entry. Luckily, I'm firmly in the former camp. The first novel in The Dark Tower series, the story revolves around the titular gunslinger (Roland Deschain) as he traverses his world to find… Continue reading The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King | Book Review
