Different Seasons, Stephen King

I LOVED this collection. Stephen King is one of my favorites, but sometimes his novels are longer than I think necessary and I get a little discouraged in the middle (I’m thinking of ‘Salem’s Lot). But this paperback collection of four novellas (that happen to have inspired some of my favorite movies) was the perfect pace.

Highly recommend “Apt Pupil” (super creepy and sticks with you) and “The Body” (which inspired the film Stand by Me), and, of course, “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.”
