Cycle of the Werewolf
Now scenes of unbelieving horror come each time the full moon shines on the isolated Maine town of Tarker Mills. No one knows who will be attacked next. But one thing is sure.
I have never read a werewolf story before, so that was fun. I liked how the first several chapters all showed different characters and then about half way through things started to merge so the conflict could be resolved. Loved that Marty dressed as Yoda for Halloween...more

Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde entonces (con lo cual puede que lo que vaya a decir no se ajuste a lo que realmente consideré en su momento), pero si no recuerdo mal lo encontré justito principalmente porqué me costó asimilar que un libro de Stephen King solo tuviera 159 páginas (con letra grande y dibujos incluidos) y que no pasara de ser un mero relato juvenil más que una novela para adultos. Yo tambien era un crio aún, lo sé, pero ya me habia leido grande...more
So an illustrated Werewolf concept novel. Hmmm.
Each month tells a brief story, basically de...more
I'd often wondered why this was one of King's offerings where the movie ("Silver Bullet") so thoroughly outstripped its written counterpart. It certainly...more
As far as the story line goes it's pretty much a classic werewolf story. A small town is hit by a string of grisly murders. The corpses showing up each morning following a full moon.

I've got this short story in a lovely graphic novel form and its a nice short read to look at.A good werewolf tale that would have been good in a longer novel form.
The story is broken in...more
King sets up an interesting premise for a book: a tale of a werewolf, told in twelve chapters of one month each in a single year. And the story is interesting. The execution, however, leaves a...more

Deadly, rip-out-your-throat beasts that have no recollection of being human. Their human counterpart doesn't remember violently taking the lives of the innocent, with only bruises and scratches making them suspicious of the beast they are.
None of this high school sweetheart turned fuzzy lap dog. No love triangles, vampires, or sexy Native Americans.
Nope. Terror, blood, violence. Of course Stephen King would get it right.

Es un libro bastante sencillito, fácil y rápido de leer, y se lee un Stephen King más simple, menos elaborado y no está tan atemorizante como otros de sus posteriores libros.
Eso si, no decepcionan sus brillantes y bastas descripciones.
Jen warned me to prepare for disappointment, so I did, but I wasn't disappointed at all really. It's a short story, that is mostly about different people getting killed by a werewolf. It's very straightforward and simple, but I liked it okay. It's not fantastic, or new, by any means, but it's still pretty enjoyable. The pictures in it were really good too.
Being that it is a novella rather than a full-sized novel, it is rather short. I finished my copy in approximately an hour. However, that was easily one of the better hours I've spent on a book.
It was an hour full not of the sappy romances and angsting werewolves as most newer werewolf novels are, but full of werewolf carnage and panicked townsfolk.
The novella was a bloody, gruesome, foreboding little book, a tale which was compounded by the...more
Its about a reverend man who is a werewolf and doesn't realize it till about the middle of the book and thats about the 6 month. they did the book in 12 months because each month was another werewolf attack because the reverend would turn to a werewolf on the full moon.
each month someone died a different way. it depended on what they were doing. only on the last month did the werewolf from a silver bullet. The bullet was shot by the one person...more
