I was very captivated by the story plots and how the man can make you feel like you right there with these people. When i read the first spring it brought me back to the Movie" Shawshank Redemption" ,which i really loved with Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman.You begin to relate to Andy and the problems he encounters in prison . I feel he played his game well while he was in there . He always had and an ace in the hole and drove warden Norton crazy.
Anyone who is a fan of King will attack this book like a rare steak sizzling on the grill.I suggest this book to someone who can sit and read forever.King can hold you captivated for hours and i hated every time i had to go to sleep.This book relates on birth, life, death, and fear.Remembering the enjoyment of Summer and hanging out with your best buds,trying to be kind to someone who has no one,learning there are times maybe you should not have left the house and being a bookworm can really get you in trouble.
.Maine must be a very captivating state. I have never been there personally ,but i feel like i have lived there through Kings novels. It almost sounds like a quaint place where kids can play in the street and you can catch moms hanging laundry in the back yard. Dads play catch with their sons in the front yard and dogs don"t chase the mailman. Then as you are walking home from school you suddenly disappear from the street.! The last thing anyone hears is "They all float down here!" . Makes one not want to go to the circus anymore!
.Spring,Summer,Autumn and Fall really makes you think over the years. i remember my summers growing up in Mississippi and hanging out with my friends and faking out my mom with the stories of staying at Lisa"s house and her telling her mom she was at mine.We got caught a couple of times and were on "house arrest" for weeks , bit it was worth it.i can relate to the boys as they went on their adventure to see a "dead body". The older boys in the story got their just goods later on. So many good times and not long enough to enjoy them..
"Apt Pupil " I think Todd was twisted before he met Dussander and it only emerged when the bulb was finally lit in his head. Dussander was just a ploy for Todd. He needed a scapegoat for the evil inside him and the perfect scenario came about for failing grades. Todd"s evil side blossomed when he was able to be in the presence of old evil thoughts.
Spring evolved around Rita Hayworth like a gentle breeze that suddenly turned into a tropical storm, then a hurricane.Nothing like your life being suddenly on hold and you finally relish in the riches you should have had all along. Summer brings you back to the days of Hitler and the torture of the innocent men, women and children. if you close your eyes you can hear the screams and smell of burning flesh. Fall makes you remember the sounds of children playing that one last ballgame and getting that one last dip in the swimming hole. catching fireflies in a jar with your best friends and taking long trips to nowhere in particular before that school bell rings for the very first time . Winter makes you want to sit in front of a cozy fire,sipping hot cocoa or a hot toddy, Inviting friends over to play board games or just to talk. Almost makes you wonder why someone would want to join a group of unknown people and have someone so fragile in reality so close to you.
Movie actress,most hated man in German history,one small unknown dead boy and a unmarried pregnant woman all rolled in one.Almost like having a surprise birthday party with Halloween . Only one can imagine!
To make you understand that life can change at a minutes notice and don"t take life with a sudden glance.Really drink in every living moment you are on this Earth for you only have one . Live,laugh,love and really stop and smell the roses every now and then.
Stephen King has been known for the scary and twisted stories he writes and Anne Rice writes of vampires and other times,but Kings illusions and making you feel in the story is what makes him stand out as an author.
King's book "Christine" was compelling and so interesting about a nerd becoming this cool guy with a tricked out car,but the movie was not as involved as the book. I felt short changed at the movie because the book stayed in my hands
for hours. i know movies have to be shortened for reasons , but it took the spark away from the real story.
.The only picture was on the front of the book and showed the setting for "The Body". i would have liked to see more adaptions for each season in the book.
Reflect on the author. Stephen King towers over many authors on the market and has always captured my attention. He has been through many bad times in his life, but has always bounced back like a basketball from the rim. He never ceases to amaze me with the ideas for books and where he gets these thoughts to put on paper makes you wonder sometimes.
