Everything's Eventual

Everything's Eventual: 14 Dark Tales - Stephen King To be honest I wasn't really impressed by this collection. There was nothing that I could really get into, and that included the Dark Tower story, which I thought would be really, really good. I think the two best stories in the collection are the one with the crazy maître d' and the road virus heads north. These two stories start off normal enough, and really only road virus has any supernatural element to it. I found the maître d' story horrifyingly simple and straightforward, and at the same time comic. There was just enough mystery to keep you guessing about the motives of the characters that you just want to read it again to be sure you didn't miss anything. Both of these stories have a very unique mystery and suspense about them that makes you want to zoom through to see what's going to happen. Impressive, in a very difficult format like the short story. Other than that, meh. But who am I to criticize? The worst story in here is light years better than the best of mine.

And of course, this doesn't mean I don't like King. I think the worst he can do in my mind is a three...
