An Audionovel by Stephen King
Normally, I don't like reading a book of stories, unless they're for children. When I purchase a book as large as this one, I'm always looking for a novel. I am a big book bibliophile, but I need a continuous story. The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is one of those I grabbed because King was the first book of stories I'd ever purchased, beginning with Skeleton Crew. I read it back in the 8th grade. So what did I think of this one?
Stephen King has always been my ultimate horror hero. He's written stories that made me to sleep with the lights on from time to time as a kid and adult! To this day, I'm still in love with his tales.
The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is a collection of his masterful short stories. Though I've read a few of them, many were new. Each story gave a brief introduction, by the king himself, sometimes saying why it was written or how the tale came into being. I loved hearing from him.
The "bad dreams" are perfect for what he's always written, but sometimes incomplete (At least to me). From science fiction to horror to ghostly machines, each one is written in his excellent style and most are filled with the intense excitement he's known for. I do have to admit, I wasn't as crazy about them all. Some didn't go anyplace. It's like, as soon as it began, it ended. I thought there'd be more. But sometimes, that's how short stories are. These are the bummers.
I'm still and will forever be a King fan, but this book didn't do it for me like the other anthologies he's written. Plus, I recognized a couple stories from other books. I hate that!
Anyway, if you're a King-head, you'll want this one on your shelf too. Check out The Bazaar of Bad Dreams while I move on to the next read. Cheers!
