Up Next: ‘Night Shift’

Night Shift by Stephen King

  • Date began: March 5, 2012
  • Genre: Horror
  • Project: n/a
  • Reading List: Spring 2012
  • Got it: I think I found this one at my library’s book sale. It was in perfect condition and only, like, 25 cents (it’s a mass market paperback). Score!
  • Why I picked it up: Laura’s maxim is: when you find a cheap Stephen King book that you haven’t read, you must buy it. Sorry, it’s like, the law.
  • Back of the book: From the depths of darkness, where hideous rats defend their empire, to dizzying heights, where a beautiful girl hangs by a hair above a hellish fate, this chilling collection of twenty short stories will plunge readers into the subterranean labyrinth of the most spine-tingling, eerie imagination of our time.

Note: I think this is King’s first collection of short stories, which is pretty darn cool. I’ve been reading a lot of his newer books recently (Under the Dome being one of them), so it will be interesting to see the development of his writing style, themes, motifs, etc.
