Read from May 01 to 12, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

As usual, a solid read from King.

The two about The Lot I'd read before (they came with my copy of the novel), but the others were all new to me. It started off with a bang, and the first couple were quite scary (I think "I Am The Doorway" wins scariest in this collection... just gave me the shivers for a long while afterwards) but towards the end, it was just getting a bit... less scary, I guess. They were still realy interesting, and very well written (I don't think I've ever written anything of King's, interesting or otherwise, that isn't at least written well), but the mystery and the scariness seemed to fade towards the end.

But still a great read - I don't think King writes any other!!
