Full Dark, No Stars: Stephen King at his Best

Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Full DarFull Dark, No Starsk, No Stars is a collection of four novellas that delve into the darker regions of the human psyche.

  • In “1922,” Nebraska farmer Wilfred James murders his wife to prevent her from selling her land, which lies adjacent to their farm – and to carry out his brutal crime he enlists the help of his teenage son.
  • In “Big Driver,” Tess, a mild-mannered writer, is brutally attacked and left for dead, and she hatches a plot to seek revenge on those responsible.
  • “Fair Extension” is a deal with the devil story Stephen King style.
  • And in “A Good Marriage,” Darcy Anderson discovers, after 27 years of marriage and two children, that her accountant husband Bob has been a serial killer since before they met.

If you like Steven King’s novels, you’ll like Full Dark, No Stars. King is a master of the shorter form. I highly recommend this collection.

  1. No problem, Bob. I don’t know if you’ve read “Under the Dome” yet. It came out in the fall of 2009, but I’m just getting around to reading it. I kept putting it off because it is HUGE (over 1,000 pages). I’m halfway through but will be reviewing it here when I’m finished reading it, which may not be too much longer because it’s an edge-of-the-chair, can’t-put-it-down read (which can be a problem when one has other responsibilities and must put it down from time to time).


  2. However, if water flows too quickly, it does not have the time get in touch with considering the
    clean advertising, resulting in all of the clean will be unable
    to absorb all the toxic contamination. While heavy metals like lead and mercury may
    possibly be eliminated, essential minerals
    are removed as nicely. Since then, things have been going steadily downhill where reverse osmosis water
    filters are concerned.
