Some people speak of Stephen King like an aging rock band-his early staff was great but his later stuff is mediocre at best. I guess I would’ve agreed because all my favorites of his are earlier works Salem’s Lot, The Stand. You could’ve counted me as skeptical when his latest book Full Dark, No Stars got some pretty good reviews but I thought I would give it a try and it was hard to put down! The book consists of 4 short stories and I think 2 of them, 1922 and Big Driver could count among his best. 1922 is one of those stories where you’re actually rooting for the bad guy (or at least I was) and Big Driver is one of those stories where the victim takes retribution into her own hands and takes care of business. If you have drifted away from King’s books in recent years, give this one a try!
